The Protec 6000PLUS Discrete Sounder with optional Visual Alarm Device (VAD) is Loop Powered and utilises the 6000PLUS sensor range common mounting base.

Sounder – The device is equipped with an integrated loop powered electronic sounder with three programmable sounder tone options, constant, pulse or warble, selectable by the control panel along with adjustable volume control. A loop short circuit isolator is also incorporated. The sounder tones are compatible with the full range of Protec 6000 Electronic Sounders.

Discrete VAD - The device is designed for installation at a height of up to 3m and adjustable from 3m to 7.5m room coverage to suit all applications.

For smaller areas, the device can be switched down from 7.5m to 3m thus reducing power consumption and maximising the number of devices on the loop.

The product has a unique lens that distributes the light in a cylindrical shape to achieve the required illumination of 0.4lux/m² over the entire room area in accordance with EN54 Part 23.

The design is based on LED technology for long life, reliability and low power consumption. Compliant with DDA legislation, this high intensity led VAD warns those with hearing impairments or in noisy environments.
