Thanks! This is so far what I have from about 7 years of fire alarm collecting and such (around there. Maybe even 8) :wink:. Pretty decent overall. Some rare alarms in there like the B2 model Simplex 2091-9806 and the Fire-Lite BG-6. But yeah.


I forgot to add a System Sensor SC2430W into that list. I do have one :).

Also, I have my eye on getting an FCI MS-2. Expect to see me add one in the not too distant future :wink: (maybe even soon than that)

Just recently added a FCI MS-2 (finally!). It's actually the older model MS-2 from what I'm hearing, which is pretty sweet. Unfortunately, no key. Gonna have to get one some how.

Just remembered I had a few other fire alarm devices back then that I don't have now. I'll try to remember the best I can, but they were an Ademco pull station (all-metal. Looks fairly similar to the Simplex T-bar, but without the spring. I believe it was a dual-action pull station as well). I had a System Sensor "Classic" strobe (it was broken on one side, and almost pretty much useless, so I guess it's not such a big deal that I don't have it anymore :-/). And finally I had a Notifier panel (don't remember model # or what it was, but I'm gonna assume it was addressable. Again, not entirely sure).


So, that's pretty much it for now. I plan on a few more devices to come in soon, but we'll see

Well, currently on my list are the Simplex 4903-9236 (Electronic Horn Strobe), the EH-DL1-WM (it's pretty hard to find an EHS-DL1, so I'm scoring for this. This is also an Electronic Horn Strobe), the Wheelock MIZ (mini-horn), the Wheelock WST-24 (the non-ADA strobe. Made in the early-90s), the EST Genesis (Ceiling Mount Horn Strobe), the Gentex Commander 1, and the Wheelock RSS strobe

Those were the notification devices I have in mind. Pull stations would be the FCI MS-6, the Simplex 4251-20, the Gamewell MS-95 ("Century"), the EST 278B (the one with the lift and pull, but is not addressable), and the Siemens / Pyrotronics MS-501.

I have a list of other alarms to obtain later on, but these are the "current" ones I'm looking out for ;).

Just recently received these items to add to my collection :)

*NIB* FCI MS-2: Image

Simplex 2903-9001 Light Plate & *another* Simplex 2901-9806 (B2): Image


The light plate is REALLY rare to find. So, is the 9086, but again I already own one :? . Pretty sweet alarms to own I will say. The light plate unfortunately needs a new bulb since the old one burnt out :( . Off to the bulb store I go!

Hey all! Long time, no see :lol:. Anyhow, I just obtained new fire alarm devices (one a trim plate, and the other a notification device)! :). Here they are!

EST G1RT-FIRE (Genesis Trim Plate) (the left to the SHG)

Image

Gentex SHG (1st Gen, Model Number: SHG24-HWR, I believe it's an 110 Candela strobe, which is pretty sweet since this device was made in 1993 :shock:)!

Image

Image (the labels weren't glued on, so I taped them on instead :|. Still works though)


The EST trim plate is a nice addition, but I'm super happy about the SHG :D! This one is pretty rare, and the one that codes itself to March-Time, which is awesome. Both were brand-new, which is even more awesome!

If you keep up with my system tests, expect these devices to appear very soon ;). Oh, and they're also now added to my requested system tests form (which I'm still currently accepting requests. Link in my signature ;)).


Got more devices to come, but I'm proud to have these additions.

That is a really nice haul that you have! Have you tested the SHG yet? I have one fond memory of it back in elementary school. LOL
