grandcentralstation Alarm and sprinkler UL listed monitoring
Revolutionary wireless radio monitoring. This wireless system eliminates the need to perpetually pay for two dedicated phone lines.
Demonstration Video: View Demo
Ideal for commercial fire alarm applications, providing a wireless communication link between the fire alarm panel and central station receiver. Housed in a full-sized, red, locked steel cabinet and supports a range of alarm panel inputs, including EOL fire, EOL supervised, and direct voltage from the panel (non-fire applications). It automatically senses phone line cuts, antenna cuts and monitors battery and AC power status. Advanced status reporting, self diagnostics and the built in power supply make the AES 7744F/7788F the first choice for all wireless monitoring needs.

Incandescent:

Incandescent exit signs are inexpensive, and can use a wide variety and number of lamps. However, incandescent lamps are very inefficient and lose a lot of their energy to heat instead of useful light.

Standard incandescent lamps have a relatively short life, around 1,000 hours on average. Some incandescent lamps specifically designed for exit signs have longer lamp lives up to 7,000 hours.

To increase lamp life, some facility managers install lamps rated for higher voltage, which greatly increases lamp life but doesn’t save energy.

Fluorescent:

Fluorescent exit lights are also inexpensive, typically using two 11- or 7-watt lamps. One lamp is illuminated until it burns out, after which the other lamp is illuminated which saves on maintenance cost.

A fluorescent lamp has an expected life of about 10,000 hours, significantly reducing maintenance expenses.

LED (Light Emitting Diode):

LED exit signs are more expensive than incandescent and fluorescent exit signs, but that cost gap has been closing quickly. LEDs are the most efficient powered exit signs on the market.

LED exit lights are typically designed with strips of LEDs where the light is reflected out of the face of the exit sign or the LEDs can be placed directly behind the face of the exit sign for illumination.

OSHA Regulations Regarding Exit Lighting


Each exit route must be adequately lighted so that an employee with normal vision can see along the exit route. 1910.37(b)(1)

Each exit must be clearly visible and marked by a sign reading "Exit." 1910.37(b)(2)

Each exit route door must be free of decorations or signs that obscure the visibility of the exit route door. 1910.37(b)(3)

If the direction of travel to the exit or exit discharge is not immediately apparent, signs must be posted along the exit access indicating the direction of travel to the nearest exit and exit discharge. Additionally, the line-of-sight to an exit sign must clearly be visible at all times. 1910.37(b)(4)

Each doorway or passage along an exit access that could be mistaken for an exit (such as a closet) must be marked "Not an Exit" or similar designation, or be identified by a sign indicating its actual use. 1910.37(b)(5)

Each exit sign must be illuminated to a surface value of at least five foot-candles (54 lux) by a reliable light source and be distinctive in color. Self-luminous or electroluminescent signs that have a minimum luminance surface value of at least .06 footlamberts (0.21 cd/m2) are permitted. 1910.37(b)(6)

Each exit sign must have the word "Exit" in plainly legible letters not less than six inches (15.2 cm) high, with the principal strokes of the letters in the word "Exit" not less than three-fourths of an inch (1.9 cm) wide. 1910.37(b)(7)
