Product Overview

The addressable Loop Powered Visual Alarm Devices (VADs) have been developed as primary or supplementary alarm devices. VADs may be used in situations where there is a risk that sounders will not be heard. This occurs, for example, where there is high background noise such as in a workshop or in a machine room. It might also be required where deaf or hearing impaired persons may be present. The Loop Powered Addressable Visual Alarm Device is a local area VAD designed for indoor use and can be connected to systems with XP95, Discovery or Soteria devices on the loop. The Loop Powered VAD can be fitted to any XPERT 7 or XPERT 8 Mounting Base. When fitted to an Integrated Base Sounder the devices can be controlled separately via their individual address. When fitted to an Ancillary Base Sounder, the sounder activation will be controlled by the VAD.
