Looks like a Wheelock MT4 with a projector horn!
That’s actually a Wheelock 34t.

Re: Anyone remember a collector by the name of "Scottparsons2008"?

Huh, well then, I guess that's all we have to go on on his existence. I know CoffeeAndSugar20, I believe most recently he dropped by NewAgeServer's house and got to host a System Test, from what I can see he's completely left the fire alarm community, or at least stopped being interested in them. O...

Re: Anyone remember a collector by the name of "Scottparsons2008"?

I don’t, but I clearly remember CoffeeAndSugar20. As a matter of fact, I don’t live too far from him, though I never visited him. He had a system in his room, and would occasionally cuss sometimes. I do remember a system test, where he pointed the middle finger at a bathroom mirror, LOL. There are R...

So were the light plates and the strobe plates made at the same time or did the strobe plates end up being the successor to the light plates?
They were both made at the same time.

Re: Simplex Strobes and Light Plates

So then the 2903 light plates were made until the mid-80s and then the 4903 light plates took over afterwards? That is what I am thinking. But I'm also wondering if the 2903 STROBE plates and 4903 STROBE plates came out at the same time since I can't imagine they had the 2903 strobe plates replaced...

Re: Fines For Failure To Operate

If I designed a panel with a disable feature in mind, It would include a system trouble letting you know that the NACs have even disabled. I would also add that if somebody pulled the alarm, the panel would automatically enable the NACs, and go into alarm.

That's the same seller that me and Federal3t22 got ours from. He has multiple apparently.
I think this is his only other one. I pleaded for my dad to let me buy it, but he said I should use my $20 for something else.
That’s too bad, but it’s YOUR money.

Re: Simplex Strobes and Light Plates

IIRC simplex released the 4903 strobe and light plates around 1988. My 4903-9101 dates back to 1990 when it was installed in a primary school.

I have it, I haven’t tested it yet because I don’t know how to power it.
Get an old extension cord and cut the socket end off. Wire the white and black wires, the green is ground and isn't needed.
Thanks!

I'm wondering if RSS Alarms has gotten it yet because I haven't heard anything from him about testing it.

Re: MS-5UD and Laptop Compatibility

Hey, So lately I've been interested in Firelite's PS-Tools, and today got a USB printer cable, downloaded PS-Tools, and began setting it up. Once connecting the USB cable to my laptop, it began intermittently connecting, disconnecting, and repeating (Keep in mind my 5UD's version is 2.3). After att...
