In a typical application, the PowerChiton is installed on a lighting pole, connected to AC power from the pole. The PowerChiton drives a cluster of up to three loudspeakers. The Breakout Box is wired to the PowerChiton, and installed at eye level on the pole.
A coach or other user can walk up to the BreakoutBox, unlock it and immediately make announcements via the microphone or play music by connecting an iPod or similar source.
