The FW962R/W Horn Strobes and FW982R/W Strobes are a family of multi-candela visual and audible signal appliances with light sources generated from white LED, listed according to UL 1971, UL 1638, UL 464, ULC-S525 and ULC-S526 for indoor use. The LED light source offers superior performance, including low power consumption and long operating life. Six levels of light output are selectable. Figure 1 shows relative light outputs in horizontal and vertical dispersion from strobes mounted on walls/ceilings.
The strobe appliances produce a flash rate of one flash per second over the Regulated Voltage Range. The temporal tone generated by the horn portion is designed as per ANSI and NFPA72 for standard emergency evacuation signaling requirement.
The appliance has the feature that can synchronize multiple horn and/or strobes in a complete fire alarm system.

(1)To avoid electrocution that could result in personal injury or death, remove all sources of power and allow 10 minutes to discharge stored energy prior to installing or removing equipment. Install this device in accordance with all applicable codes and the Local Authorities Having Jurisdiction.
(2) Electrical supervision requires breaking the wire run at each terminal. Do not loop the signaling circuit field wires around the terminals.
(3)Check the manufacturer’s installation instructions for other equipment used in the system for any guidelines or restrictions on wiring and/or locating NACs and notification appliances. Some system communication circuits and/or audio circuits, for example, may require special precautions to assure electrical noise immunity (e.g., audio crosstalk).
(4)Check that the installed product will have sufficient clearance and wiring room prior to installing bases. Do not over tighten mounting screws as this can deform the base and may affect operation.

4.Combine the (horn) strobe with base – Align the (horn) strobe onto the base then and twist it in clockwise.
5.Test for proper operation. Initiate this unit from the connected FACP and observe for proper operation.
Scheduled inspection and operational test should be carried as per requirement set out by Local Authority Having Jurisdiction.
Return the device for reparation if it fails to alarm during testing. Do not disassemble the detector without permission.
