Eaton expands line of notification appliances
Power management company Eaton announced that its Cooper Notification business has expanded its Wheelock Exceder LED Series to include ceiling models for horns, horn strobes, strobes, speakers and speaker strobes.
The Wheelock Exceder Series is the industry’s first line of notification appliances to utilize high-efficiency light emitting diodes (LEDs) as the strobe light source to help reduce overall costs in fire alarm and emergency communication systems.
“The addition of new ceiling appliances completes our low candela line of Wheelock Exceder LED products,” said Huyenchau Villas, product manager, Eaton’s Cooper Notification business. “Our break-through optical design and energy-efficient LED technology leads the industry in low current draw, which equates to lower installation costs, reduction in materials and overall system savings for customers.”
Exceder LED ceiling appliances offer one of the industry’s smallest footprints in a sleek, modern design. For faster and easier installation, the series includes dual voltage (25/70 Voltage Root Mean Square), five field-selectable tap settings (1/8 to 2 watts) for speaker models and multiple audible settings for horn models, field-selectable candela (cd) settings (15, 30, 75, 95 cd), and convenient mounting options for both new and retrofit construction.
The Exceder LED speaker and speaker strobe models feature the widest frequency response range in the industry spanning 300 to 8,000 Hertz. Ideal for mass notification applications, the wider frequency response range allows the speaker to reproduce frequencies closer to the original sound, improving the clarity and comprehension of the intended message for intelligible communications.
Eaton’s Cooper Notification business offers the Exceder LED ceiling speaker data files for the EASE Evac software design tool from AFMG technologies to help system designers meet intelligibility code requirements.
