The simplex light with the double gang box is a simplex 2904-9xxx strobe or light. The strobe is rare, but if it is an incandescent bulb, it is almost SCARCE!!! But if you have one that is 120VAC, it is scarce. Mountainbell has a red 9103, and Destin has a white 9101, and I have a white 9101 also. Take good care of that 2904, because they are very rare.

Wow. i have to say that this is a very nice collection. It has a nice mix of old and new, and most of the alarms are in GREAT condition. That's great! I would die for a collection like this. :)

Nice!! Those newer pictures are AMAZING. The lighting is perfect, and what kind of camera are you using? Did I mention the lighting?

Also, I like how many obscure pull stations you have. Do you have any video demonstrations?

Thanks! I appreciate my collection very much and take great pride in the devices I have. I'm rather finicky when it comes to the condition of the alarms I own so I tend to take good care of them in order to preserve them in the best possible shape.

Thanks for the compliment! I tried to get the very best photos and I'm glad it worked out so well. The camera I used is a Canon EOS Rebel T2i (with a 55-250 mm lens) mounted on a Manfrotto tripod. The lighting, on the other hand, is nothing special; it's simply a combination of natural light, room lighting, and a cheap L.E.D. desk lamp from Walmart.

Unfortunately, I currently don't have any video demonstrations of my pull stations, although it's definitely something I'd like to do. It will probably take a while, but my goal is to have something out sometime in the next few months.

It is indeed a 24VDC bell. This one happens to be a single-stroke model.

Is there a similar model that is vibrating and also 24VDC?

I know that 24VDC vibrating versions of this bell exist (identical gong and base), but I'm not quite sure of the model number. Perhaps EdwardsFan would have more information, as he owns quite a few different versions of the Adaptabel.

I believe the model # for those vibrating bells is 343-D.

What kind of horn is this? It looks exactly like a 9838 and the voltage says 22-28, so what's different about it?
