Edwards panel models 1979-1980?

Does anyone know what panels edwards manufactured and marketed during 1979-1980 in the US. I’m trying to find out what panel my middle school had before the replacement in 2004 when the system was upgraded. The school is sorta small so that kinda narrows down the system size.

Re: Schools not evacuating during a fire alarm

Very absurd and pathetic policy. What if a real fire occurred and the administrators said not to evacuate, they are putting lives in danger, even people with disabilities are put in big danger. This should not exist. Fire alarms are meant to alert people of a fire. Installers don’t mount them for fu...

2008.
No, I’m talking about the EH alarms like the EHS-DL1, EHS-EL1, EH-DL1 and EH-EL1 horn strobes. They’ve been around longer than 2008

My Middle school’s old fire alarm system

The middle school I attended was built in 1980 with an old Edwards system. The old system consisted of Edwards 270-spo pull sustains and Edwards 439d-6awc bells installed in hallways. The system was replaced in 2005, so this info may not be correct, however I have confirmed that the pulls were 270-s...

Manual for Johnson controls BGX-101l

Does anyone have a manual for the JCI BGX-101l? I need one please. You are reading the model number correctly, it is a BGX-101l, not a JBGX-101l. The document number is 15122 REV:C, that’s what it says inside the pull station.

Very creepy lockdown tone

The school district I go to has Rauland-borg telecenter ics/u intercoms. The lockdown/lockout tone that was programmed on the intercoms is VERY eerie and sorta scary. I can’t really describe the tone, nor do I have a recording of it but this is my best description of the sound. The lockdown/lockout ...

Re: School Bell & PA Systems

I don’t think it’s a simplex PA, all the basic functions were done through the phone itself. It could be a Bogen, Rauland-Borg or a Dukane PA. I guess I’ll never know, it’s been many years since I heard the paging tone, but I’m confident the tone is around a 1080hz square paging tone.

Re: School Bell & PA Systems

My primary school had an old PA system from 2001 when the school was built. I have no idea what the manufacturer of the PA system was, but I want to know if anyone can help identify it. The paging tone is a 1080hz tone, and the pa phone itself is white, does anyone know what it is? Also, the PA syst...
