Unlike the FireClass FC430SB fire alarm sounder base, this FireClass sounder and beacon base is fully addressable and can be programmed, without depending on the fire and smoke detector installed on it. Using the fire alarm control panel it is possible to select any of 15 tones and 4 volumes on the FC430LPASB FireClass fire alarm sounder beacon bases. Combining a smoke detector base with a fire alarm sounder, a fire alarm beacon, and a line isolator in one low cost fire alarm sounder and beacon base, results in a dramatic reduction in the final installation cost. Fire installers and service engineers have provided feedback showing a cost saving between 40- 55%, of the installation costs per fire detection point can be saved. This presents an exciting opportunity for sellers in the DDA compliant market. This is achieved without the need for specialist high cost fire and smoke detector heads.
