Re: Wheelock 7002t Strobe

The closest you can get to that is the WST-24 remote strobe, which is vertical and not horizontal.

Re: Daily Fire Alarm Question!

A: I am guessing Parkland or another school shooting. Q: Are you allowed to have white pull stations? It was indeed parkland, an electrician told me about it. NFPA Code changed after the shooting because the shooter pulled the fire alarm to lure more victims and cause mass panic. Only one supervise...

Re: Overpriced Panels

Some sellers have a reason for overpricing fire alarm equipment. One is Buy Fire Alarm Parts. They sell, repair, and refurbish alarm equipment. They do sell their equipment quite pricey, yet let’s admit it, we’re all pretty cheap. The reason they would sell equipment at that price is due to the labo...

Re: Mock systems in buildings

Sometimes mock systems are put in to train maintenance personnel on the same system they will be working on without disturbing the occupants in the building by setting off the actual system

Re: Overpriced Panels

There is no standard price for a fire alarm panel, it is up to whoever is selling it to set their price.

Re: Mock systems in buildings

I'm making this topic because my post on Work/School fire alarms blew up. My school is located in a plaza. It has 2 systems. The main, life safety system is a Notifier NFS-3030, with a mix of NBG-12LXs and Notifier MPS-950Bs, and a combination of System Sensor P2Rs and Mircom FHS-240Rs. There is al...

A closer view of the EST3 panel at my high school. (I had to censor out the name of the school on the LCD, and a phone number written on that label on the right corner. I did it for privacy reasons, the LCD isn’t normally blank like that)

Re: "Please disregard the fire alarm."

That’s so people know that it is only a test and not a real emergency, that’s why they include that line.

Re: Very old panel acquired

Just so you know, the resistors are wire-wound, ceramic resistors. Please take note that behind the resistor where the burns started, you've probably noticed a white spot. Fire alarm panels that are at least as old as yours used "ebony-asbestos" boards. That white spot you see behind the resistor i...

Re: Very old panel acquired

I did clean the panel at some point, I haven’t noticed anything wrong with my health since I got the panel so I’m probably not gonna die from exposure. I might paint over it at some point, but for now, the panel lies in a closet with a towel under it.

Re: Anyone know what this horn is?

It is indeed an older Edwards horn. This model appears to be the predecessor to the well-known 360-series Adaptahorn. A similar horn (model 311-F) can be seen on this page . A few months ago, I saw an IBM-branded version of this device listed on eBay. I wouldn't be surprised if other companies had ...
