The new sound of safety: TrueAlert ES audio speakers - the fire alarm industry’s first addressable speakers with individual speaker audio on-off control - take notification to another level of capability, safety and value for architects, engineers, installing contractors, building owners and facility managers. TrueAlert ES addressable speakers are specially designed to provide higher quality audio output, improved aesthetics and sophisticated emergency message delivery.
Targeted audio messaging for enhanced emergency response: Different audio messages can be delivered to specifically targeted areas within a building. Each audio unit has its own address on the fire alarm system and is supervised by a SIMPLEX ES fire alarm panel. This means the fire alarm panel can be programmed to select exactly which speakers are to be used and what message will be played on them during an emergency.
Appliance self testing: The self-test process takes just seconds to complete, and can be initiated manually or programmed via the fire alarm control panel to run automatically at a convenient time.
Improved aesthetics: The speakers are available in red, white and black and feature a sleek, streamlined look that blends well with building or facility decor.
Improved audibility and intelligibility: In an emergency, speakers are used to notify building occupants through prerecorded messages, tones or live messaging. In addition, high-quality audio output enables the speakers to be used for standard daily functions like non-emergency paging and background music.
Automatic Notification Appliance Synchronication - The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as well as many individual project specifications and local regulatory agencies require notification appliance strobes to be synchronized in areas where multiple appliances are visible from a single point. The goal is to avoid triggering seizures in photo-sensitive people when the appliances go into alarm. Typical applications are building atriums, airport concourses, and sporting venues. With TrueAlert ES, all the notification appliances on a network loop automatically synchronize. No special programming, wiring, or adapter modules are required. This means no matter how you design or install your Simplex system, you will always be in compliance with this synchronization requirement.
