The new D2x family from E2S Warning Signals is based on a high-output 116-dB(A) SPL 64-tone four-stage horn sounder, which can be combined with a powerful 5 or 10 Joule Xenon strobe in a compact 130-mm-wide, 125-mm deep (~5 x 5 in.) die-cast marine grade aluminum housing.
Designed for use in hazardous locations, the D2x has gained 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. The horns offer 64 internationally and nationally recognized alarm tones plus continuous, intermittent, sweeping and alternating tones with an effective range of up to 125 m (410 ft); multi-sounder systems are automatic synchronized. In combined audible/visible units the polycarbonate beacon lenses are user-changeable, with a choice of amber, blue, clear, green, magenta, red and yellow colors. For maximum compatibility, the devices can be powered from 24 or 48 VDC or 115 or 230 VAC.
