Eaton has developed the Wheelock Eluxa low frequency sounders (ELFHN) and sounder strobes (ELFHS) to meet the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 72) low frequency sounder requirements for sleeping rooms for both fire alarm and carbon monoxide (CO) signaling. In a single device, the Eluxa low frequency sounders features both low and high candela settings and alarm signals for dual applications - T3 (fire) and T4 (CO) tones.
High efficiency, LED technology
Eaton's high energy efficient technology leads the industry in lowest current draw across the full candela range, which reduces overall power consumption and costs in fire alarm systems. As the first notification appliances in the industry to utilize LED as the light source, this breakthrough and patented optical design, resulting in best-in-class efficiency, enables material and system cost savings, allowing for a greater number of appliances on the notification appliance circuit and fewer power supplies. All strobe models feature 110 and 177 candela settings for both wall- and ceiling- mount models.
Low profile design and rich feature set
With the industry's smallest footprint, the Eluxa low frequency sounders and sounder strobes are aesthetically pleasing as the low profile design does not detract from the interior decor. Eluxa is feature rich with low and high candela settings and 3 horn patterns (Continuous, T3, T3/T4) in 1 device, pre-wire/pre-test via mounting plate with hinged feature for ease-of-installation, and no tools needed for setting changes. These products are suitable for indoor wall and ceiling mount applications. The ELFHS and ELFHN models are for 24V operation. Special lettering, ALERT, CO, and no lettering, is available.
Approvals and synchronization
Eaton's Eluxa strobes meet the 20 millisecond light pulse duration requirements of the 2016 edition of NFPA 72. By meeting this latest requirement, xenon and LED devices can now be in the same field of view.
The Eluxa notification appliances are listed under UL Standards 1971, 1638, and 464 and under CAN/ULC-S525 and CAN/ULC-S526. The appliances are Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliant and contain no mercury or other hazardous substances.
In addition, the Eluxa product line has been UL/ULC listed as compatible with all Fire Alarm Control Panels (FACP) and accessories that have been determined to be compatible with Exceder LED3 and Wheelock RSS strobe-based products including the RSS, CH, E, EH, ET, ST, HS, MT, S8, SA, STH and Z Series. The listing also includes the ability to install the Eluxa strobes in the same notification zone and field of view with any Wheelock RSS strobe and Exceder LED3 models.
