All strobe models are UL dual listed-meeting both UL1638 and UL1971 requirements. As dual listed appliances, these weatherproof strobes, horn strobes and speaker strobes are listed for outdoor applications under UL 1638 as well as under UL 1971, the Standard for Safety Signaling Devices for Hearing Impaired. With an extended temperature range of -40°F to 150°F (-40°C to 66°C), Wheelock weatherproof appliances meet or exceed UL outdoor test requirements for rain, humidity and corrosion resistance while providing multiple strobe intensity options, including the highest strobe ratings available for area coverage per NFPA 72 strobe spacing tables (up to 185 candela for wall mounting and 177 candela for ceiling mounting).
To enable weatherproof mounting, Eaton provides the industry's widest choice of mounting options for surface or unique semi-flush installation. Models are available for surface mounting to Wheelock weatherproof backboxes on walls or ceilings. The optional WP-KIT allows the weatherproof backboxes (IOB, WPBB or WPSBB) to be mounted to a recessed electrical box for concealed conduit installation. For semi-flush installation, the WPA and WFPA kits allow a customer to mount the weatherproof appliances to a recessed electrical box without the need for an external weatherproof backbox. See Table 10 on page three of this document for a summarization of these mounting options and the required accessories.
All models may be synchronized using the Wheelock DSM sync modules, Wheelock power supplies or other manufacturers panels incorporating the Wheelock patented sync protocol. The horn output of horn strobes can be independently controlled on 2-wire circuits using the Wheelock patented sync protocol. MTWP horn strobe models are 4-wire appliances; the strobes can be synchronized while the audible can be connected to a coded fire alarm system. MT horns may be synchronized, using the temporal Code 3 horn setting.
