INTRODUCTION

The Gentex SPKE Series is a high quality speaker and speaker/visual signal appliance. The SPKE Series is UL Listed for fire protective service. The high intensity strobe utilizes a Xenon flash tube which generates a high-intensitylight visible from all sides. The strobe is UL Listed in compliance with UL 1971, Signaling Appliances for the Hearing Impaired (15/75 Cd and 30/75 Cd

models are additionally listed in compliance with UL 1638).

II. PRODUCT INFORMATION

The SPKE Series speaker and speaker/strobe offer a choice of field selectable power taps, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1, 2 and 4 Watts for either 25v or 70.7v audio amplifiers. The speaker/strobe offers the option of a high intensity strobe which complies with UL 1971. The frequency range of the speakers is 400-4000Hz.All devices are suitable for line supervision. Speaker includes DC blocking capacitor which allows for supervision voltage of either polarity.

III. LOCATION

This appliance is intended for use in Fire Alarm Systems and is to be installed in accordance with this installation manual, the recommendation of the local authorities having jurisdiction, and other NFPA Standards that provide standards on notification appliances for protective signaling systems.

The Gentex "SPKE" is intended for indoor installation only. This appliance is not weatherproofed for outdoor or drip proof applications.

Wall-mountedappliances shall have their bottoms at heights above the finished floor of not less than 80 in. (2m) and no greater than 96 in. (2.4m)**. Spacing shall be in accordance with Table A. If a room configuration is not square, the room size that will entirely encompass the room or subdivide the room into multiple squares shall be used.

IV. MOUNTING ROUGH-INBOX AND RUN WIRING

MOUNTING OPTIONS

All models shown with optional strobe.

SYSTEM CONSIDERATIONS

1.To select the proper wattage input for the speaker. Move the jumper to the appropriate pin. Refer to Section VII for the proper terminal.

2.Always maintain electrical isolation between speaker and strobe wiring on combination units.

3.Do not exceed 130% of rated speaker voltage. If excessive distortion is heard, check amplifier for signal clipping. If clipping exists, reduce either amplifier input or gain.

4.When extension rings are used, the conduit should always enter through the backbox.

CAUTION

WHEN INSTALLING, ROUTE FIELD WIRING AWAY FROM SHARP

PROJECTIONS, CORNERS AND INTERNAL COMPONENTS.

NOTE: Strobes are not recommended for use on coded or pulsing signaling circuits.

NOTE: DO NOT USE

*MAX. WIRE DISTANCE (IN FEET) = PANEL VOLTAGE - DEVICE MINIMUM VOLTAGE X WIRE CONDUCTIVITY(STROBE ONLY) TOTAL CURRENT DRAW

*INCLUDES WIRE TO AND FROM APPLIANCE.

ASSUMES ALL APPLIANCES ARE AT THE END OF WIRE RUN (WORST CASE).

CAUTION: APPLIES ONLY TO REGULATED SUPPLIES.

V.CHECKOUT AND TROUBLESHOOTING

1.Supply power to the system control panel. The auxiliary signaling device should not be activated.

2.If the signal is activated:

a.Check all smoke and fire detectors in the system to make sure they have not been activated.

b.Check all wiring connections to make sure the signal detection circuits are not reversed or shorted together. Check wire color codes and traces.

3.To test the "SPKE" series and other signaling appliances, trip the auxiliary panel or activate alarm circuit at the main control panel or activate one of the fire detection units in the system. All auxiliary signals should be activated.

4.An operational test on this product should be conducted in accordance with National Standards or at a minimum annually and more often if dictated by local and state codes or authorities having jurisdiction.

SIGNALING APPLIANCE LIMITATIONS:

Your speaker meets or exceeds current audibility requirements of Underwriters Laboratories. However, if the appliance is located outside a bedroom it may not wake up a sound sleeper, especially if the room door is closed or only partially open.

WARNING

THIS APPLIANCE WILL NOT OPERATE WITHOUT ELECTRICAL POWER. AS FIRES FREQUENTLY CAUSE POWER INTERRUPTIONS, GENTEX SUGGESTS

YOU DISCUSS FURTHER SAFEGUARDS WITH YOUR LOCAL FIRE

PROTECTION SPECIALIST.

VI. TO RETURN A UNIT

Should you experience problems with your "SPKE" unit, proceed as follows:

1.Turn off electrical power to the auxiliary alarm circuit.

2.Unscrew the unit from the mounting box.

3.Disconnect the unit from the field wiring. Reconnect the two positive supply voltage circuits

(red wires) and the two negative supply voltage circuits (black wires) of the auxiliary alarm circuit to maintain power to the other auxiliary alarm appliances in the system.

4.Carefully pack the defective unit (the manufacturer cannot be responsible for consequential damage due to shipping or mishandling). Include your return address and complete details as to the nature of the difficulties being experienced and date of installation.

5.Return to: Gentex Corporation, 10985 Chicago Drive, Zeeland, MI 49464. Prior to returning, call Gentex @ 1-800-436-8391to obtain an RMA number from our return department.
