MEA
The Gentex AVS44 Synchronization Control Module is
designed to provide an easy way to synchronize multiple
horns as well as strobe light flashes using only two wires in
those rare instances where a synchronized flash is required.
The control module has the ability to synchronize multiple horn signals with: a Code 3 temporal pattern at 800
Hz or 2400 Hz; the 800/1000 Hz alternating tone; the chime
— and the ability to silence the horn while allowing the
strobes to continue flashing.
285-91-E Vol. XII
S5405
By incorporating the control module as shown in the wiring
diagrams (page 2), the control module will control power to
the horns to produce synchronized operation. When using
Z-Series strobes or horn/strobes in parallel mode, synchronization may also be attained without using a control module if the fire alarm control panel is capable of providing
pulsed power with a minimum power-off time of 10 mS and
a maximum power-off time of 20 mS and with a repetition
rate of 1 second (see figure 2, page 2). In parallel mode,
the horn cannot be silenced while maintaining strobe operation.
FEATURES
• Option to silence the horn while strobes continue to flash.
• Synchronize horn and strobe using only two wires.
• Operates GOS “Z” horn/strobe.
• Module is rated for 3 Amps at 24 VDC.
• Easy to install.
• Synchronizes to 1 Hz flash rate.
• Dimensions: 3.321" (84.3534 mm) high x 2.896"
(73.5584 mm) wide x 1.190" (30.2260 mm) deep.

NOTE ON JUMPERS:
When using the AVS44 control module, J5 and
J6 on the GOS must be in the top position.
These jumpers are in the top position when
shipped from the factory.
