1 Emergency Lighting > Chloride Systems’ CMF/TMF/ZMF Series emergency lighting meets egress code requirements and is available in 6-, 12- or 24-volt, 25–450-watt units with a high-performance MR16 lamp-head assembly options. Lamp-head mounting options include top, sides or bottom of the enclosure. A 120/277 dual-voltage input with surge protection and Intelli-Charge for self-diagnostics continuously monitors all critical functions. It has a sealed lead calcium or nickel cadmium battery that surpasses the need for 90 minutes of emergency power. It can be wall-, column-, pole- or I-beam mounted.
2 CO Detector > System Sensor’s CO1224TR carbon monoxide (CO) detector with RealTest is a round device for ceiling or wall applications. It has a low current draw, the latest electrochemical sensing cell, and a six-year, end-of-life timer. The CO-Plate CO detector replacement plate covers the outline of old detectors.
3 Access Control > Camden Door Controls’ Invision TAC integrated is a 500-name, eight-line, auto-dialer telephone entry and access control system that allows installers to network up to four local panels and up to 16 card readers along with elevator control. It can be ordered for local, hardwire programming using USB or with a modem. It is supported with a choice of HID/AWID compatible card readers and a wide selection of wiegand readers, keypads and RF controls.
4 Alarm Pull > Fire-Lite Alarms’ BG-8 manual fire alarm pull station is a single-action, normally open contact alarm initiating point designed for indoor use in atmospheres that are not potentially explosive. It has non-break-glass operation and is operated by a pull on the pull cover, which causes a key latch to act against a retaining mechanism. The retainer is a permanent, high-tensile, flat spring.
5 Lock > Yale Locks & Hardware’s deadbolt and lever locks are available with either a capacitive touchscreen or pushbutton keypad integrated with Control4 2.0 user interface, which allows the homeowner to directly access and control many of the lock’s unique features. Users can create personalized events or scenes triggered by the push of a button from anywhere in the home or remotely over the Internet. The locks support both Z-Wave and ZigBee, allowing them to integrate seamlessly into a wide range of home control and security systems. They feature voice-assisted programming in English, Spanish and French; personalized access-control scenes for up to 250 users; and access to all user-programmable settings.
6 Siren > Potter’s Amseco SSX-52 Series indoor/outdoor siren has a durable polycarbonate housing attached to a sturdy aluminum back plate, which offers protection against vandal attacks and does not warp or crack during installation. The optional strobe comes in the distinct colors of amber, red, clear, and blue and uses a matched mirror and lens to provide a light color that is distinguished easily in dark and light environments. It has a 120 dB warble tone sound output and dual-action tamper that protects from cover removal or rear plate removal.
7 Beacon > Dialight’s dual beacon is an all-LED L-864/L-865 flashing dual (white/red) strobe beacon with the low-profile, lightweight flash head for reduced wind load and ease of installation on radio and cell towers and chimney stacks. At just under 8 in. in total vertical height and only 26 lbs., the medium-intensity white strobe and red beacon offers 95 percent greater operating efficiency than Xenon. It leverages Cree XPG and Cree XPE white and red LEDs for energy efficiency and long life.
