Discovery Marine Sounder Visual Indicator Base

Product code: 45681-394MAR

45681-394MAR - Discovery Marine Sounder Visual Indicator Base
The Discovery Marine Sounder Visual Indicator Base makes full use of the Discovery protocol. For ease of commissioning, a ‘Magnetic Wand’ can be used to test and adjust each sounder locally.
Full details
Operating Principles

The Discovery Marine sounder visual indicator base offers a choice of 15 evacuation tones, including the standard Apollo evacuation tone. One of these tones is selected during commissioning in order to suit local regulations or customs. The tones include those required by Dutch, Swedish, German, Australian, New Zealand and North American standards as well as the UK. Whichever evacuation tone is selected there is a secondary tone which may be used for alerting or warning of a possible evacuation.

Application

The Discovery Marine sounder visual indicator base is used to provide audible and visual warning of fire and is controlled by the fire control panel by means of the Discovery protocol. The particular features of this base are available only when it is being controlled by the full Discovery protocol with the panel programmed accordingly. Information on features should be requested from the panel manufacturer. The Discovery Marine sounder visual indicator base can be used with a detector fitted or with a cap for operation as a stand-alone alarm device.

Device Addressing

In many installations a fire alarm must be raised by switching more than one sounder visual indicator to alert or alarm simultaneously. This is achieved with Discovery Marine sounder visual indicator bases by assigning devices to groups on commissioning, with the group information being stored in each device. One command will then switch all devices in the group. For more details refer to datasheet PP2479.

Maintenance & Service

Detectors should be maintained according to BS 5839-1 or other locally applicable code. Test equipment can be ordered from Apollo for testing smoke and heat detectors. Detectors should not be cleaned in the field except for careful removal of exterior dirt with a damp cloth. For cleaning and recalibration detectors should be returned to Apollo Fire Detectors or to the local distributor.

EMC Directive 2004/108/EC

The detector complies with the essential requirements of the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC, provided that it is used as described in this datasheet.

Construction products regulation 305/2011

The detector complies with the essential requirements of the Construction Products Regulation 305/2011.

Options

The Discovery Marine sounder visual indicator base normally switches both sounder and visual indicator to provide an alert or evacuation signal. The sounder and visual indicator of the Discovery Marine sounder visual indicator base can, however, be switched independently of each other by the control panel. Location-specific volume setting Detectors and sounder visual indicators are installed in many different types of environment. When configuring the Discovery Marine sounder visual indicators base the adjustment of volume can be done at the point of installation. The commissioning engineer simply sets the control panel to ‘Setup’ and then walks from one device to the next to set the required volume, using a magnetic wand, part no 29650-001. When all devices have been set the control panel is used to register all the individual volume settings.
