What sounders do Apollo offer?

Apollo offers a number of different sounders:

XP95 100dB(A) Loop Sounder (part number: 55000-261) is a stand-alone sounder which gives a guaranteed output of 100dB(A) with a current consumption of 4.5mA. It is loop powered and needs no external power supply.

Since the sounder is intended for use in open areas (such as corridors and warehouses), it is possible for more than one sounder to be audible at any given point in a building. For this reason, the operation of all the sounders may be synchronised. The 100dB(A) Loop Sounders can therefore be assigned group addresses as well as individual addresses.

The sounder can be connected to any XP95 or Discovery system.

Ancillary Base Sounder (part number: 45681-276) is a local-area sounder designed for indoor use (for example hotel rooms and student accommodation). Provided the control panel has the required software, it can be connected to XP95 or Discovery systems.

The sounder incorporates a base into which an XP95 or Discovery detector is fitted. A guaranteed sound output of 85dB(A) at 1 metre is achieved at a current consumption of only 3mA. The sounder has a very low current draw so that up to 126 sounders may be connected to a loop.

The sounder's volume control can be used to adjust the sound steplessly from 70dB(A) to 85dB(A). However, the sounder does not have a synchronisation feature or pulsed tone.

Intelligent Base Sounder (part number: 45681-265) builds on the strengths of earlier Apollo sounders and offers additionally synchronisation of continuous and pulse tones and multiple allocation of any address to sounders.

Synchronisation of pulse tones ensures the integrity of the alert signal - tones from different sounders do not merge into one signal that could be mistaken for an 'evacuate' tone.

Since more that one sounder can be allocated to any address (the upper limit is 126) more sounders or detectors can be fitted to the loop. There is also a further advantage in that sounder activation time is reduced.

The sounder can be connected to any XP95 or Discovery system.

Apollo also have a number of sounders for particular ranges:

XPlorer Base Sounder (part numbers: 59000-607 with optical detector, 59000-407 with heat detector, 59000-417 with high temperature detector) is a local-area sounder designed for indoor use. The sounder incorporates an XPlorer base into which an XPlorer detector is plugged. A guaranteed sound output of 85dB(A) at 1 metre is achieved at a current consumption of only 3mA. The sounder has a very low current draw so that up to 63 sounders may be connected to a loop.

The volume control can be used to adjust the sound steplessly from 70dB(A) to 85dB(A). It should be noted that these sounders do not have a synchronisation feature.

The sounder will operate only with control equipment using the Apollo XPlorer protocol. The features of the XPlorer Base Sounder are available only when the sounder is connected to a control panel with the appropriate software.

AlarmSense Low Profile Sounder (part number: 45681-259) can be mounted beneath an AlarmSense detector and base. There are also versions that can be supplied as stand-alone sounders with either a white or red cap (part number: 55000-256).

The sounder has 4 DIL-switch selectable tones and two volume settings of 85dB(A) or 92dB(A).

These sounders are designed for use only with AlarmSense systems.
