INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
SERIES ET70/90 LOW PROFILE SPEAKERS AND SPEAKER STROBES
Use this product according to this instruction manual. Please keep this instruction manual for future reference.
GENERAL:
Wheelock’s Series ET70/90 Low Profile Speakers and Speaker Strobes are UL Listed under Standard 1971 for Signaling Devices for the
Hearing Impaired and UL Standard 1480 for Speaker Appliances. They are designed for multiple power requirements with high dBA output
at each power tap. All models offer a choice of field selectable taps, 1/8W to 8W for either 25.0VRMS or 70.0VRMS audio systems. The
Low Profile design incorporates a high efficiency speaker for maximum output at minimum power across a frequency range of 400Hz to
4000Hz, and features a sealed back construction for extra protection and improved audibility. The Series ET appliances also incorporate a
Speaker Mounting Plate attached to the speaker for ease of installation. The Low Profile Speaker Strobes can provide a non-synchronized
strobe appliance when connected directly to a Fire Alarm Control Panel (FACP), or provide a synchronized strobe appliance when used in
conjunction with a Sync Module (SM), Dual Sync Module (DSM), or Power Booster (PS-12/24-8). The Strobes use a Xenon flashtube with
solid state circuitry enclosed in a rugged Lexan lens to provide maximum visibility and reliability for effective visible signaling. The
241575W candela wall mounted strobes are listed at 15 candela under UL Standard 1971 and meet 75 candela intensity on axis with low
current draw. The ET70 Speaker Strobes for wall mounting only are available with a choice of five UL Listed strobe options: 2415W,
241575W, 2430W, 2475W and 24110W. The ET90 Speaker Strobes for ceiling mounting only are available with a choice of four UL Listed
strobe options: 2415C, 2430C, 2475C, and 24100C. All models are Listed for indoor use only with the backboxes specified in these
instructions (see Mounting Options).

Sheet 2 of 10
WARNING: MAKE SURE THAT THE TOTAL AVERAGE CURRENT, TOTAL PEAK CURRENT AND TOTAL
INRUSH CURRENT REQUIRED BY ALL APPLIANCES THAT ARE CONNECTED TO THE SYSTEM’S PRIMARY
AND SECONDARY POWER SOURCES, NAC CIRCUITS, SM AND DSM SYNC MODULES DO NOT EXCEED THE
POWER SOURCES’ RATED CAPACITY OR THE CURRENT RATINGS OF ANY FUSES ON THE CIRCUITS TO
WHICH THESE APPLIANCES ARE WIRED. OVERLOADING POWER SOURCES OR EXCEEDING FUSE RATINGS
COULD RESULT IN LOSS OF POWER AND FAILURE TO ALERT OCCUPANTS DURING AN EMERGENCY, WHICH
COULD RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE AND SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH TO YOU AND/OR OTHERS.
When calculating the total average, peak and inrush currents: Use Table 2 (for wall mount) and 2A (for ceiling mount) to determine
the highest value of “Rated Average Current” for an individual strobe (across the expected operating voltage range of the strobe), and
the highest value of “Rated Inrush Current” or “Rated Peak Current” (whichever is higher) of an individual strobe (across the
expected voltage range of the strobe), then multiply these values by the total number of strobes; be sure to add the currents for any
other appliances, including audible signaling appliances, powered by the same source and include any required safety factors.
If the inrush current or peak current exceeds the power supplies’ inrush capacity, the output voltage provided by the power supplies
may drop below the listed voltage range of the appliances connected to the supply and the voltage may not recover in some types of
power supplies. For example, an auxiliary power supply that lacks filtering at its output stage (either via lack of capacitance and/or
lack of battery backup across the output) may exhibit this characteristic.
CAUTION: Strobes are not designed to be used on coded systems in which the applied voltage is cycled on and off.

MOUNTING OPTIONS:
CAUTION: The following figures show the maximum number of field wires (conductors) that can enter the backbox used with
each mounting option. If these limits are exceeded, there may be insufficient space in the backbox to accommodate the field wires
and stresses from the wires could damage the product.
Although the limits shown for each mounting option comply with the National Electrical Code (NEC), Wheelock recommends use of
the largest backbox option shown and the use of approved stranded field wires, whenever possible, to provide additional wiring room
for easy installation and minimum stress on the product from wiring.

Sheet 7 of 10
MOUNTING PROCEDURES:
CAUTION: Check that the installed product will have sufficient clearance and wiring room prior to installing backboxes and
conduit, especially if sheathed multiconductor cable or 3/4" conduit fittings are used.
1.
ET70/90 models have an integrated Speaker Mounting Plate.
2.
The Speaker Mounting Plate must be oriented correctly when it is mounted to the backbox. Turn the Speaker Mounting Plate so
that the arrow above the words “Horizontal Strobe” points to the top side of the Speaker Mounting Plate.
3.
First mount the Speaker Mounting Plate to the backbox with the Cone Protector on; after the Speaker Mounting Plate is attached
to the backbox, remove the Cone Protector before installing the grille. Next slide the grille over the Speaker Mounting Plate
strobe and attach with (2) screws.
4.
When terminating field wires, do not use more lead length than required. Excess lead length could result in insufficient wiring
space for the signaling appliance.
5.
Conduit entrances to the backbox should be selected to provide sufficient wiring clearance for the installed product.
6.
Do not pass additional wires (used for other than the signaling appliance) through the backbox. Such additional wires could
result in insufficient wiring space for the signaling appliance.
7.
Mounting hardware for each mounting option is supplied.
8.
All models can be flush mounted to a 4” square by 1-1/2” deep backbox with a 4” square 1-1/2” extension ring (Figure A or B).
ET70 models can also be surface mounted to a SBB (Figure C or D).
9.
Use care and proper techniques to position the field wires in the backbox so that they use minimum space and produce minimum
stress on the product. This is especially important for stiff, heavy gauge wires and wires with thick insulation or sheathing.
CAUTION: Always operate audio amplifiers and speakers within their specified ratings. Excessive input may distort sound
quality and may damage audio equipment. Do not exceed +130% of speaker input voltage per UL 1480. Improper input voltage can
damage speaker. If distortion is heard, check for clipping of the audio appliance with an oscilloscope and reduce the amplifier input
level or gain level to eliminate any clipping.
WARNING: WHEN INSTALLING STROBES IN AN OPEN OFFICE OR OTHER AREAS CONTAINING
PARTITIONS OR OTHER VIEWING OBSTRUCTIONS, SPECIAL ATTENTION SHOULD BE GIVEN TO THE
LOCATION OF THE STROBES SO THAT THEIR OPERATING EFFECT CAN BE SEEN BY ALL INTENDED
VIEWERS, WITH THE INTENSITY, NUMBER, AND TYPE OF STROBES BEING SUFFICIENT TO MAKE SURE
THAT THE INTENDED VIEWER IS ALERTED BY PROPER ILLUMINATION, REGARDLESS OF THE VIEWER'S
ORIENTATION. FAILURE TO DO SO COULD RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE AND SERIOUS INJURY OR
DEATH TO YOU AND/OR OTHERS.
ET70-24110W strobe models are Listed for use in sleeping or non-sleeping areas when installed in accordance with appropriate
NFPA Standards and the Authority Having Jurisdiction.
P83567 C
Sheet 8 of 10
WARNING: INSTALLATION OF WHEELOCK 110 CANDELA STROBE PRODUCTS IN SLEEPING AREAS
SHOULD BE WALL MOUNTED AT LEAST 24" BELOW THE CEILING AS FOLLOWS: (1) THE ON-AXIS
(DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF LENS) LIGHT OUTPUT SHOULD BE DIRECTED AT THE EYE-LIDS OF THE SLEEPING
PERSON, E.G. PILLOW END OF BED, BED HEAD; (2) NO PART OF THE BED SHALL BE MORE THAN SIXTEEN
(16) FEET FROM THE STROBE NOTIFICATION APPLIANCE. INSTALLERS MUST ADVISE OWNERS AND
OPERATORS OF BUILDINGS WITH SLEEPING OCCUPANTS, E.G. HOTELS AND MOTELS, TO WARN GUESTS,
RESIDENTS AND EMPLOYEES TO NOT MOVE THE BED LOCATION TO A POSITION VIOLATING POINTS (1)
AND (2) ABOVE OR SERIOUS INJURY AND/OR LOSS OF LIFE MAY OCCUR DURING A FIRE EMERGENCY.
WARNING: A SMALL POSSIBILITY EXISTS THAT THE USE OF MULTIPLE STROBES WITHIN A PERSON'S
FIELD OF VIEW, UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES, MIGHT INDUCE A PHOTO-SENSITIVE RESPONSE IN
PERSONS WITH EPILEPSY. STROBE REFLECTIONS IN A GLASS OR MIRRORED SURFACE MIGHT ALSO
INDUCE SUCH A RESPONSE. TO MINIMIZE THIS POSSIBLE HAZARD, WHEELOCK STRONGLY RECOMMENDS
THAT THE STROBES INSTALLED SHOULD NOT PRESENT A COMPOSITE FLASH RATE IN THE FIELD OF VIEW
WHICH EXCEEDS FIVE (5) Hz AT THE OPERATING VOLTAGE OF THE STROBES. WHEELOCK ALSO
STRONGLY RECOMMENDS THAT THE INTENSITY AND COMPOSITE FLASH RATE OF INSTALLED STROBES
COMPLY WITH LEVELS ESTABLISHED BY APPLICABLE LAWS, STANDARDS, REGULATIONS, CODES AND
GUIDELINES.
NOTE: NFPA 72/ANSI 117.1 conform to ADAAG Equivalent Facilitation Guidelines in using fewer, higher intensity strobes within
the same protected area.
CAUTION: Check the installation instructions of the manufacturers of other equipment used in the system for any guidelines or
restrictions on wiring and/or locating Notification Appliance Circuits (NAC) and notification appliances. Some system
communication circuits and/or audio circuits, for example, may require special precautions to assure electrical noise immunity (e.g.
audio crosstalk).
