  • Horn Strobes for Fire Alarms and Emergency Notification


    For Audio and Visual Fire Alarm and Notification

    Horn Strobes are a type of audible and visual signaling device commonly used in fire alarm systems and emergency notification systems. They combine both a loud audible sound (generated by a horn or speaker) and a bright visual strobe light to effectively alert people in a building or area of an emergency situation.

    Here are some key features and characteristics of horn strobes:

    1. Audible Alarm: The horn strobe produces a loud sound, typically in the range of 85 to 120 decibels, to ensure that the alarm can be heard over ambient noise levels. The sound is often a Continuous Horn or Temporal sound designed to grab attention and indicate the need for evacuation or response.
    2. Visual Alert: In addition to the audible alarm, horn strobes incorporate a high-intensity strobe light. The strobe light emits bright flashes of light or candela setting, usually in a synchronized pattern, to provide a visual alert. Field Selectable Candela settings include15/30/75/110cd or 135/185cd (Multi-Candela models) or 1575cd (single candela model) and Ceiling Mount 15/30/75/95cd or 115/177cd The combination of sound and visual signals helps ensure that individuals with hearing impairments or those in noisy environments can be alerted.
    3. Integration with Fire Alarm Systems: Horn strobes are typically integrated into fire alarm systems and are activated when a fire alarm is triggered. Usually 24V or less common are 12V devices. They are often installed on walls or ceilings in strategic locations throughout a building to provide comprehensive coverage.
    4. Different Output Settings: Horn strobes can often be configured with different output settings to accommodate various environments. This includes adjustable volume control for the audible alarm and adjustable intensity for the strobe light.
    5. Code Compliance: Horn strobes must comply with local fire codes and regulations, which often specify requirements such as sound output, strobe intensity, placement, and visual signaling standards.
    6. Variations: There are different types of horn strobes available to suit different applications. Some models are weatherproof and suitable for outdoor use, while others are designed for indoor environments. Variations also exist in terms of the design, color, and size of the strobe housing.

    Horn strobes play a crucial role in alerting and warning individuals during emergencies, allowing for timely and orderly evacuation or response. They are commonly found in commercial buildings, industrial facilities, educational institutions, healthcare facilities, and other public spaces where fire alarm systems are required. We carry major brands Including Wheelock, System Sensor and Federal Signal.

  • Telcom & Data Introduces NOAA Weather Radio Tornado Early Warning System

    Great news for businesses located in tornado effected areas.  Telcom & Data has been working with Thunder Eagle, Inc., a leading manufacturer of Tornado Early Warning industrial grade NOAA weather radios for the past 25 years, to deliver early warning solutions to large commercial sound systems.  The Weather Eagle 100 receiver and the

    Early Warning NOAA Radio Save Lives with an Early Warning NOAA Radio for Industrial Plants

    Alert Eagle 120 (SAME) Specific Area Message Decoder provide real time, reliable, and automatic source of weather alerts, filtered by specific weather events and geographical location into public address systems.

    The Thunder Eagle system was engineered for, and has been in active service in, weather mission critical locations such as PSAPS, business headquarters, factories, schools, security offices, sports venues, and command centers for decades. For example, Thunder Eagle systems are in active use automatically opening FEMA tornado shelter doors and setting off municipal tornado sirens throughout the country when the National Weather Service (NWS) issues tornado warnings.

    Thunder Eagle is happy to pre-program the receivers for specific weather threats such as tornados, flash floods, hurricanes, and blizzards and county locations to make installation as plug and play as possible.

    When asked about why Telcom & Data was recommending and installing the Thunder Eagle radios the President of Telcom & Data said, “ Thunder Eagle radios are able to provide severe weather detection faster and better than other sources. Giving people the ability to evacuate even 1 minute sooner can make the difference between life and death.”

    Thunder Eagle radios have many sophisticated diagnostic features that help to verify that the NWS alerts are actually being received and properly decoded, including recording the last weather alert into the receiver, both in analog audio format and decoded SAME for later playback and analysis. The NWS has often used these features to troubleshoot and maintain the national NOAA weather radio system. Consumer grade NOAA radios do not provide this level of sophistication and reliability. Special radio filters limit locally generated RF from interfering with the reception of weather alerts.

    For facilities that need full time weather forecasts, information and radar, in addition to warnings, Thunder Eagle integrates the Weather Eagle into a full web site with local professional weather station that is accessible through web browsers.

    The Thunder Eagle radio and encoder can be connected to Supervised Paging System to automatically broadcast a weather alert throughout a building notifying employees to take shelter.  For more information please call 800-335-0229 ext 834
