Weatherproof fire-alarm appliances, including strobe, audible strobe, audible horn and multitone strobe appliances, provide enhanced resistance to temperatures ranging from -31°F to 150°F (-35°C to 66°C) and are rated for 75 candela @ -35°C. All appliances also meet or exceed the latest requirements of NFPA 72 (National Fire Alarm Code), UL Standard 1638 (Standard for Visual Signaling Appliances), and UL 464 (Standard for Audible Signaling Appliances).

Combination Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm incorporates advanced electrochemical sensing CO technology and the industry’s first true gas-sensor testing feature. Sensor diagnostics are said to provide a higher level of protection due to unique self-testing capability, which verifies that the carbon monoxide sensor is working properly and warns when the sensor is nearing the end of its service life.

Selectable output wall-mount horns, strobes and horns/strobes are said to offer average current draws that are lower than conventional fixed-candela 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.
