Line of audible and visible notification appliances adds indoor and outdoor horns and chimes

St. Charles, IL - System Sensor's SpectrAlert Advance, the industry's newest, most refined series of audible/visible notification appliances, includes indoor and outdoor selectable-output horns and selectable-output chimes. They have exclusive plug-in designs with a universal mounting plate for easy installation. The horns and chimes are electrically compatible with the extensive SpectrAlert product line and meet all standard agency listings, including UL, FM, MEA, and ADA and are CSFM listed. SpectrAlert ceiling strobes can be selected in standard or high candela, combinations of red and white exteriors and a selection of exterior markings in various languages.

SpectrAlert Advance features a plug-in design that allows installers to pre-wire mounting plates and check wiring continuity before installing any devices. Other features include 11 field-selectable candelas for horns and 7 for chimes, automatic selection of 12- or 24-volt operation at 15 and 15/75 candela and a shorting spring on mounting plate for continuity check before installation. Ideas for these new features were sparked from extensive nationwide research that System Sensor conducted with commercial fire-system dealers, installers, engineers and designers. The research identified customer priorities relating to audible/visible notification appliances. Top priorities included products that are easier to specify, configure and install.

The SpectrAlert Advance series contains wall-mount horns, strobes, horn/strobes, chimes and chime strobes, as well as ceiling-mount strobes and horn/strobes. System Sensor also offers a complete line of outdoor SpectrAlert Advance products, including ceiling-mount strobes and horn/strobes.
