I didn't even know half of these alarms existed! Pretty nice find.

On a side note, I found the message from Andrew's system test video intros: http://www.cooperindustries.com/content ... 0s%205.WAV

[quote="Lambda"]How has nobody posted this yet? At least I scanned through the threads here and didn't see it. Anyway, have fun changing your phone ringtones this afternoon...

Thanks for these, I never knew these where around! :D

Instead of embarrassing out my helper by making him continuously going "test, test, test" into the microphone, had it playing from a digital recorder.
The sound clip you are talking about seams like its from Silent Knight voice evac panels but I can be wrong.

Has anyone noticed that the sounds listed for "Series AS" and "Series Exceder" are the same exact sound files respectively? The code-3 sound comes from the Wheelock AS and the continuous sound comes from the Exceder.

And has anyone also heard the strobe capacitor (as well as the click for when it flashes) from said code-3 sound file?

The Exceder series is the newest line, basically replaced the AS series so it's not surprising.

I did hear the stobe, and I believe Wheelock used the same or similar internal horn with the Exceder and AS.

Heh, our training manager at work has one of the recordings from Notifier's Onyx DVC voice systems on his phone. What I like about it though is how perfectly it seems to fit the situation.

You forgot the click that comes in at the end of some of them! :)

Speaking of my intros and click noises -- here is the now iconic click that played at the beginning of my first FA intro:

I knew you stole it from Dan! I just knew it! Haha, why didn't you use your own pull station click?

I thought Wheelock used the NS horn for the Exceder, and the AS was different?
Am I the only one who think Spectralert Advances should be eliminated from this planet?
