GE Security GEC-AB4GSB Surface Box for Signature Sounder Base


Our Price : $9.78

Product Code: GEC-AB4GSB


The Signature Series AB4G sounder base adds an audible output function to any Signature Series detector. The base can operate as an independent local alarm, or as part of a zone or system alarm with synchronized audible output. The sounder base matches the finish of Signature Series detectors and the sound output slots complement the smoke/heat entry openings of the detector. The result is a compact unit with an attractive appearance.

The base generates a loud piercing tone that has excellent wall penetration qualities. It uses the same tone generator found in the award-winning Genesis line of wall and ceiling horns. The AB4G may be configured in the field for either steady or temporal output and either high or low dB output. Low dB and steady output selections are made by cutting jumpers on the circuit board. The default setting is high dB with temporal output.

AB4G sounder bases on the same circuit may be activated as a group or zone with the use of a SIGA-CRR polarity reversal module, and the group or zone may be synchronized audible output with the use of a G1M-RM signal master. The AB4G sounder base can simply operate according to the state of its detector, or it can be configured through system programming to operate in conjuction with all sounder bases on the same circuit, or it can be controlled by program rules. Available operating modes are determined by the system that supports the Signature data loop.
