E2S has introduced the new D range of alarm sounders and combined sounder/beacon warning signals for harsh environments.

Designed for use in harsh environments where high temperatures, shock and vibration or high UV levels are anticipated, the D range of emergency beacons uses the electronics of its well-established A Series, and is housed in a robust, corrosion resistant LM6 aluminium alloy enclosure for greater mechanical, temperature and UV protection than an equivalent plastic bodied device. 

A metal housing is proven to offer far greater protection at elevated temperatures than a plastic enclosure and is especially suited for outdoor applications such as mining conveyors where high ambient temperatures and sustained vibration can be experienced.

While the D105 is rated at 112 dB @ 1m and the D112 at 117 dB @ 1m, both types are also available combined with a Xenon strobe or LED beacon to generate an audible as well as visual alarm from a single unit.

Offering a choice of 45 different alarm tones with the option of activating a second and third tone via additional control cables, the alarm sounders and beacons offer a cost-effective sophisticated signalling solution. The devices can operate from 12V, 24V and 48VDC as well as 115V and 230VAC. A UL approved version is also available.

Mechtric has more than 40 years of experience in the supply and support of a comprehensive range of sounders, beacons, loudspeakers, voice alarms and wide area signalling devices for the oil and gas, hazardous area, industrial and marine markets.
