The FW962 Horn Strobe and FW982 Strobe are a family of multi-candela visual and/or audible signal appliances with light sources generated from white Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), listed according to UL 1971, UL 1638, UL 464, ULC-S525, and ULC-S526 for indoor use. The LED light source offers superior performance, including low power consumption and long operating life. Five levels of light output are selectable. The default setting is highest level. Figure 1 shows relative light outputs in horizontal and vertical dispersion from strobes mounted on walls. 

The strobe appliances produce a flash rate of one flash per second over the Regulated Voltage Range. The temporal tone generated by the horn portion is designed as per ANSI and NFPA72 for standard emergency evacuation signaling requirement. 

The (horn) strobe has the feature that can synchronize multiple horn and/or strobes in a complete fire alarm system.  

The 7″ display shows up to 8 lines at a time.
