System Sensor® SpectrAlert® Advance selectable-output
horns, strobes and horn/strobes are rich with features guaranteed
to cut installation times and maximize profits. The SpectrAlert
Advance series of notification appliances is designed to
simplify your installations, with features such as: plug-in
designs, instant feedback messages to ensure correct installation
of individual devices, and eleven field-selectable candela
settings for wall and ceiling strobes and horn/strobes.
More specifically, when installing Advance products, first attacha universal mounting plate to a four-inch square, four-inch octagon,
or double-gang junction box. The two-wire mounting plate
attaches to a sigle-gang junction box.
Then, connect the notification appliance circuit wiring to the
SEMS terminals on the mounting plate.
Finally, attach the horn, strobe, or horn/strobe to the mounting
plate by inserting the product’s tabs in the mounting plate’s
grooves. The device will rotate into position, locking the product’s
pins into the mounting plate’s terminals. The device will
temporarily hold in place with a catch until it is secured with a
captured mounting screw.
