Dortronics Systems, Inc.'s 7200-PT Series Door Prop Alarm is designed to provide an audible alarm if a door is not closed within a specified time period or forced open. The new units are designed for ease of installation and integration with a variety of Dortronics systems products. The 7200-PT Series Door Prop Alarm provides universal operation. Opening the door activates the PT timer unit which provides a mirrored door switch output to an access system. After the allotted door open time which can be preset from 5 seconds to 90 minutes has expired, a local warning period begins when an alarm condition is triggered. If the door is forced open, an alarm immediately sounds and a signal is sent to the monitoring station. When supplied with an optional push button, momentary switch contacts are available to provide an R-E-X signal to access control. For more information, visit www.dortronics.com
Fire Product Line Expands
The System Sensor SpectrAlert series now offers selectable output wall-mount horns, strobes and horns/strobes, providing key performance features long associated with the SpectrAlert name. The selectable candela strobes and horn/strobes offer average current draws that are lower than conventional fixed-candela SpectrAlert products, as well as lower than similar selectable candela products. Since less current is consumed, even more devices per loop can be connected, resulting in a lower installed cost.
All strobe and horn/strobe models incorporate a new patent-pending voltage booster design that has a more consistent flash bulb voltage over the range of candela selections. The selectable output line incorporates the same stylish, low profile design of the conventional SpectrAlert products, providing a consistent and aesthetically pleasing appearance across the entire product line.
The selectable output line features installation-friendly options, such as 2- and 4-wire operation; the ability to standardize size back boxes with no encroachment into the box; and, universal mounting integrating the labor-saving QuickClick feature that eliminates mounting screws.
