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

There are several potential answers to this question.

Notification appliances: Benjamin Electric, Federal Signal, Faraday, Atlas (speakers), Gentex (mini-horns)
Smoke detectors: possibly Hochiki
Intercom: Valcom

Maybe Retired STR-SG could provide some insight.

Now a question: Which zones on the Simplex 4002 are reserved for (a) coded pull stations, and (b) waterflow?
