Critical Alarm Enunciator: Applications

Critical Alarm Enunciator - Applications

The CAE receives alarm input from monitored devices, provides audio/visual notification to local personnel, and then relays alarms to your existing alarm collection equipment.

When the CAE receives an alarm input, the LED corresponding to the activated alarm point will FLASH RED and the speaker will sound.

To acknowledge the alarm and silence the speaker, press the ACO button. The alarm LED will turn SOLID RED to indicate that the alarm has been acknowledged. You may adjust the volume of the alarm with the Volume Control wheel located at the bottom of the CAE.

The input polarity of the discrete alarms can be reversed using the configuration DIP switches on the top panel.
