Electrical Description

The VAD is loop powered and requires no external power supply. It operates at 17–28V DC.

Mechanical Construction

The case of the VAD is made of white or red self extinguishing polycarbonate with stainless steel contacts. Dimensions: Part No. 55000-740 & 55000-743: 100mm diameter x 48mm height (56mm height with XPERT 7 Mounting Base) Part No. 55000-742 & 55000-745: 100mm diameter x 50mm height (58mm height with XPERT 7 Mounting Base)

Application

The Loop Powered Addressable Visual Alarm Device is a local-area VAD designed for indoor use. The VAD can be connected to systems with XP95, Discovery or Soteria® devices on the loop. The Loop Powered VAD can be fitted to any XPERT 7 or XPERT 8 Mounting Base. When fitted to an Ancillary Base Sounder (Part No. 45681-276), the sounder activation will be controlled by the VAD. When fitted to an Integrated Base Sounder the devices can be controlled separately via their individual address. Refer to PP2486 / Figure 1 to see the coverage volume for the ceiling category VAD with example calculations.
