What kind of device is a horn strobe?

The Edwards 6536-G5 Horn/Strobe is an audible/visual signaling device that may be used in a variety of system configurations including call for assistance applications.

Are horn strobes addressable?

Developed by Simplex, the new technology for the first time extends the benefits of interactive addressability to notification appliances – the horns, strobes and combination horn/strobes that warn building occupants of a fire.

How many amps does a horn strobe draw?

Most areas would have the cd set to 75 so the horn/strobes set to 75 would draw between 162 and 253mA or an average of just over 205mA. If you are in larger rooms and you have to have the higher settings then the mA is higher.

Where do you need horn strobes?

NFPA 72 requires strobes installed in hallways and corridors to be visible from anywhere. The code states these specific requirements: Strobes must be installed no further than 100 feet apart down the length of a hallway. Strobes must be located within 15 feet of either end of a hallway.

How does a horn strobe work?

Typically installed on the walls or ceilings, each strobe device has a candela rating, which is a base unit of luminous intensity. The higher the candela rating of a strobe device, the larger its coverage area. Horn strobes combine audible and visual alarms to alert the occupants to evacuate the premises.

What is the purpose of the fire call point?

A manual call point is a device which enables personnel to raise an alarm in the event of a fire incident by pressing a frangible element to activate the alarm system. A fire alarm call point should be installed at a height of 1.4m above floor level at easily accessible and conspicuous positions.

How many devices can you put on a NAC circuit?

Four Class B or two Class A NAC circuits. SLC Loop: SLC can be configured for NFPA Style 4, 6, or 7 operation. SLC supports up to 318 addressable devices per loop (159 detectors and 159 monitor, control, or relay modules), including the new addressable dual-monitor module, heat detectors, and duct detector.

What rooms need strobes?

Fire legislation and legal documents, such as the NFPA 72 and ADA, stand that public areas require the installation of strobes. If so, you should see this type of device in hallways, lobbies, restrooms, classrooms, cafeterias, conference rooms, and other public spaces.
