Annunciator Panel, model AP-8000C, is designed to meet NFPA 1221 standards for a dedicated BDA and BDA battery backup annunciation panel. Contained in a compact NEMA 4 enclosure, the audible and visual alarm annunciator is a companion to the PE Series power enclosures and features eight Form-C alarm relays. The first five alarms are wired for NFPA mandated alarms; AC Power Failure, Low Battery, Charger Failure, BDA Failure, and Antenna Failure. Three additional alarm relays are available for site customization per UL Standard 2524; additional alarms could include Donor Antenna Disconnection, Active, RF Emitting Device Malfunction, System Component Malfunction, and more. A normal AC power LED and lamp test button are included.
