BiWire two-wire detector base sounder VAD

The BiWire base sounder and base sounder visual alarm device (VAD), can be used both with a detector or as a standalone device.

The base sounder and base sounder VAD incorporate a detector mounting base, allowing a detector to be fitted directly to the base or, alternatively, a cover plate can be used to provide a dedicated, discreet, standalone device. 

Both options are suited to applications where ambient noise is high, including schools, retail units, healthcare, offices and nursing homes, and a wide variety of industrial environments.

Powerful enough to use alone, flexible enough to use with a detector

The base sounder range has been designed with the installer in mind. The first fix base reduces installation time when adding a detector, and simple cover plates can be quickly fitted where a detector isn't necessary. Volume and tone are simply set by dip switches on the device.

Clear visual notification during an emergency; approved to EN54-23

VADs provide a clear signal of evacuation for any occupant that may not be alerted by an audible alarm due to working in a noisy environment like a factory, if they are hard of hearing or increasingly in office and educational environments due to wearing headphones.
