New additions to Mallory’s miniature panel alarm series, 22mm Panel Alarms with LED Lights, mean even more choices and greater flexibility. Just last year, we added models with the capability for both light and sound alarms to this series. Now we are introducing models with two new capabilities: the integration of multi-tone sound options and the ability to independently control sound and light alarms.
Multi-tone Sound Options
Until this new product release, users were limited to models offering only one sound and light option for each model. Now, Mallory is now offering eight new multi-tone sound options in models with either 16 Vdc and 28 Vdc voltage. Each alarm part number can produce 4 different sounds in a single package. These ten different tones are available: continuous, slow pulse, fast pulse, chirp, slow chime, fast chime, slow warble, fast warble, slow siren, and fast siren.
These new multi-tone alarms provide cost savings as well as improvements in safety and efficiency. Applications which require two or more alarm sounds would normally require more than one audible alarm unit. This single multi-tone unit can replace the multiple alarms, offering an overall cost savings in both piece part cost and installation cost. Using multiple sounds on a machine can also improve safety and efficiency since the operator will hear different sounds depending on the issue that needs to be addressed on the machine.
Independently Controlled Light and Sound Models
As mentioned above, for all the currently available 22mm with LED light models (including the new multi-tone models), the LED and sound are internally tied together. If the sound is continuous, the light is on continuously. If the sound pulses, the light pulses at the same time as the sound. What if, instead of Mallory controlling the LED light, the user is given control? This would provide the user with a true two-in-one device where a single physical unit can produce a sound alarm, a light indication, or both. Mallory is offering three new Independently Controlled Light and Sound Models:
- IC1: Continuous Sound, Continuous LED
- IC2: Fast Pulsing Sound, Continuous LED
- IC3: Slow Pulsing Sound, Continuous LED
In other words, in a small 22mm panel package, the customer gets an audible alarm and light where both are independently controlled. This saves the user panel space and overall cost since only one device needs to be installed on the machine instead of separate audible panel and LED panel device. The independently controlled light and sound units can truly replace the panel alarm and panel LED with one single unit since both are controlled independently. This saves space, installation costs, and over-all piece part cost.
