The integrated base sounder is line powered and needs no external power supply. It operates at 17-28V DC and is polarity-sensitive.
The integrated base sounder is moulded in polycarbonate and has stainless steel contacts that accept solid or stranded cables of up to 2.5mm².
ADDRESSING The integrated base sounder responds to its own individual address set with a DIL switch. It also responds both to a group address, set by means of a 4-segment DIL switch and to a pulsed-mode synchronisation address which is embedded in the unit. GROUP ADDRESSING It may be desirable, in alarm conditions, to switch more than one integrated base sounder simultaneously. To enable this, sounders may be controlled as a group and given a group address which is common to all sounders in the group. When a device recognises its group address, it will process the forward command bits but it will not return any data to the control panel on that ad dress. If it is required to confirm the status of the outputs of devices under group address control, it is necessary to interrogate all devices in the group at their individual addresses.
The sounder will operate only with control equipment using the Apollo XP95 or Discovery protocol. The features of the Integrated base sounder are available only when the sounder is connected to a control panel with the appropriate software.
For more details, refer to Installation Guides (39214-210, 39214-305) and Datasheets (PP2209, PP2227, PP2203 and PP2090).
The Integrated Base Sounder comprises of a base sounder with integral mounting base and is for use with Discovery or XP95 ranges. It is designed for indoor use.
