Exciting updates to Sirena’s M-Line sounder beacon range bring greater versatility and functionality
Distributed by Switchtec, Sirena’s M-Line range of beacons and sounders truly represents the state of the art in signalling. Important updates have been introduced to the range that expand its potential uses and even further hones the units to the specific tasks and applications in which they are asked to perform.
Sirena’s M-Line 2.0 represents the evolution of Sirena’s Modular range. The M-Line range offers an exclusive modular system that allows each of the eight dome types to be mounted on each of the six base types. This adds to the M-Lines tailormade flexibility meeting customers’ requirements and keeping the number of components needed low, reducing stock holding, allowing fast solution responses to ever changing market needs.
This update includes higher performing electronic components that have enabled an increase in the electromagnetic compatibility, reaching the maximum standard as a level of immunity for both industrial and civil applications.
Further evolutions have improved the products functionality, which includes the ability to change the brightness of the beacons, sound affect and sound volume for each of the 2 input channels. The user can change the Luminosity from 100% to 66% or 33%. Increase, decrease, or completely mute the sound output. Change the Luminous effect, from Steady Light, to Rotating, Single Flash, Double Flash, Strobe and Random light effects (dependent on device). There are 64 selectable tones, 32 Tones for each of the 2 channels. All of these options can be tailored to the user’s exact requirements by adjusting internal tactile switches and DIP switches and are independently controllable via separate electronic contacts.
Additional improvements to the M-Line range also include improved operational temperature range from -40oC to +55oC and an increased IP rating of IP69K and an improved impact rating of IK08 (Dependant on type and with additional accessory) make them excellent for outdoor use in hostile environments.
The Eight dome types include Flashing, Rotating and Steady beacons with additional functions such as Strobe, Double Flash and Random to compliment the more traditional light out puts. The high output Sounder and Combined Sounder and Beacon domes have 64 Tones to choose from and a sound output of up to 115dB with built in volume adjustment should a lower volume be required.
Mounting bases for the range include, Shallow Base, Deep base with M20 knockouts and Compression glands to maintain the high IP Rating. Also available to suit the range are Pole mount, Double base, Wall mount and a Flush mounting base, the ideal choice when for aesthetic reasons a more discreet solution is required. The double base is the ideal choice when there is a need to install two M-LINE domes on the same base, for example a rotating beacon and an electronic siren These are available in Grey, White, Red, and Black. All versions and options are available in 12/24Vac/dc and 90/240Vac.
The multifunction LED beacons are available in five colours: red, amber, green, blue and white. An exciting multi-colour LED flat beacon offers Eight separate colours in one unit red, amber, green, blue, yellow, cyan, magenta and white, whilst also still offering Steady, Single Flash and Double Flash outputs. The industry standard for ‘all-clear’ or ‘normal’ is Green, amber is for signalling a change of operational mode, whilst red is for signalling a stop of operational mode or to alert of a danger. The Multi colour LED beacon can display all 3 modes in 1 compact housing.
Each component of the M-Line range has been engineered with an easy snap-on technology that allows easy and safe installation procedures in the most challenging of environments.
The LED technology allows a better resistance to vibrations, a longer life of the product as well as a low power consumption, providing zero maintenance and drastically reducing operating costs. The very high optical performance of the lighting devices, linked to the high output of the acoustic components, place M LINE at the top of the range, making it suitable for the most complex application solutions. The innovative design of the product means that they can play a key role in commercial and civil applications, as well as in traditional industrial applications.
The Sirena M-Line is available Ex-stock at Switchtec.
