I have a simplex 4903-9418 from 2000 and I really can’t hear a difference with the sound except the slight difference in the pitch, but I’m going to go with true.

I’m talking about an Edwards QuickStart panel. And yes, it is true. The models with the buzzers were in The very early versions of development, and only a few were released to use in service.

Oh sorry. I meant when did SIMPLEX stop making the 4041 (or rebranding since they technically did that).

I wanna say sometime in 1998 (when I first started kindergarten!)

Which came first? The 9833 (rebranded Faraday horn) or the 9806 (rebranded Federal Signal horn)?
