Mar. 4, 2016 – The D2x family from E2S Warning Signals is based on a high output 116 dB(A) SPL 64-tone 4-stage horn sounder, which can be combined with a 5 or 10 Joule Xenon strobe in a 130-mm wide, 125-mm deep die-cast marine grade aluminum housing.
Designed for use in Zone 2, 22 and Division 2 hazardous locations, the D2x claims to be a “truly global product range,” with approvals permitting use in regions covered by IECEx, ATEX, NEC and CEC regulations. With four remotely triggered alarm stages, the D2x can signal multiple safety warnings or process events. In the combined units, the Xenon strobe beacon and the alarm horn sounder can be activated individually via separate terminations or linked for simultaneous operation from a common power supply, says the company. The horns offer 64 alarm tones plus continuous, intermittent, sweeping and alternating tones with a range of up to 125 m (410 ft). In combined audible/visible units, the polycarbonate beacon lenses are user-changeable, with a choice of amber, blue, clear, green, magenta, red and yellow colours.
