Edwards introduces the next generation of Genesis notification appliances, offering installation flexibility and ultra-low electric current draws. The new energy-efficient Genesis LED G1 series of compact wall-mounted horns, strobes and horn/strobes will debut at Global Security Exchange (GSX) in Las Vegas, Sept. 23-27. Edwards is part of UTC Climate Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.
With minimised current draw, building owners can expect lower installed costs as system integrators power up devices for service. The Genesis LED G1 Series’ current draw is listed at 24 milliamps volts of direct current (VDC) for settings up to 75 candela flash intensity for the compact LED strobe, well surpassing the requirements of comparable strobe products in the most common commercial applications.
Easy installation and reliable performance
Edwards designed the Genesis LED G1 Series to install on the same notification circuit as older appliances with compatible flash patterns“At Edwards, we believe the best notification appliances meet three criteria: they install easily, warn efficiently and perform reliably over time,” said Edwards General Manager, Angie Gomez. “Chief security officers, facility managers, building engineers, IT experts and others concerned with the implementation of overall incident management plans will find that the new Genesis LED G1 Series appliances meet these criteria.”
Edwards designed the Genesis LED G1 Series to install on the same notification circuit as older appliances with compatible flash patterns, including legacy Genesis products, enabling placement of more devices on each circuit. In addition, the Genesis LED G1 Series strobe has a sleek, compact profile, protruding less than an inch from the mounting surface with no visible mounting screws.
The compact devices are the first of several Genesis product introductions expected in the coming months, including full-size appliances for walls and ceilings, as well as speakers.
