Overview
Standard Features
EDWARDS’s 964 and 965 Series Speaker and Speaker-Strobes
are designed for broadcasting high quality, integrated, emergency
voice communications, alert and alarm tone signals. Use them in
life safety applications, especially to notify the hearing impaired,
where transitory people are expected such as hotels, malls, airports, hospitals and other public buildings.
• High fidelity
Large eight-inch speaker cone offers a wide frequency response to improve audibility and intelligibility
Speakers are shipped complete with a ‘DC Blocking Capacitor’ to
permit electrical supervision of the audio distribution circuit. Use
the 964 series for 25 Vrms circuits; the 965 series for 70 Vrms
circuits. The large eight-inch speaker cone offers a wide frequency
response to improve audibility and intelligibility. Wattage taps from
½ to 4 watts provide on-site flexibility where higher or lower dB
output is desired. Wattage tap selection is easy; just move the
slide-on connector on the speaker’s terminal block.
The 12½ inch (318 mm) diameter steel baffle is finished with an
attractive yet durable, high quality, baked white epoxy polyester
powder-coat. The speakers flush mount to EDWARDS’s custom
960A-8RF box. The flush box is made from satin-coat steel and has
flexible mounting straps for easy installation with poured concrete
forms.
The flash from EDWARDS strobes will be noticed from almost any
position in the room, corridor, or large open space. The output is
controlled using a specially shaped reflector to ensure precise dispersion of the light in all viewing directions. EDWARDS strobes are
UL1971 listed with both wall and ceiling cd intensity ratings (see
Specifications). This is useful in areas where the Authority Having
Jurisdiction (AHJ) permits ceiling mount strobes.

• 25 and 70 volt RMS models
All speakers include a DC Blocking Capacitor for audio circuit
supervision.
• Screw terminal wire connection
Connect for ½, 1, 2, or 4 watt operation on terminal block.
Terminals speed installation and accept up to #14 AWG (1.95
mm²) wire.
• UL 1971-listed synchronizing strobe
Integrity strobes synchronize to the latest UL 1971 requirements when used with a synchronization source.
• Genesis-compatible
All Genesis and Integrity strobes on the same circuit meet UL
1971 synchronization requirements when used with an external
control module.
• Approved for public and private mode applications
UL 1971-listed as signaling devices for the hearing impaired
and UL 1638-listed as protective visual signaling appliances.
• Field changeable field markings
Lens language or standard “FIRE” marking is easily changed
with optional LKW and LKC series lens kits.

Application
NOTE: The installation of visible and audible signals are subject to national and local standards, codes, and ordinances.
Consult your Authority Having Jurisdiction for device installation requirements, application standards, and minimum performance specifications.
Strobes
EDWARDS strobes are UL 1971-listed for use indoors as wallmounted or ceiling-mounted public-mode notification appliances
for the hearing impaired. Prevailing codes require strobes to be used
where ambient noise conditions exceed specified levels, where occupants use hearing protection, and in areas of public accommodation. Consult with your Authority Having Jurisdiction for details.
Speakers
All 964 and 965 Series speakers include a DC blocking capacitor to allow electrical supervision of the audio distribution circuit.
Models for 25 VRMS and 70 VRMS circuits are available. Wattage taps
from 1/2 W to 4 W provide on-site flexibility.
The suggested sound pressure level for each signaling zone used
with alert or alarm signals is a minimum of 15 dB above the average ambient sound level or 5 dB above the maximum sound level
having a duration of at least 60 seconds, whichever is greater. This
is measured 5 feet (1.5 m) above the floor. The average ambient
sound level is the RMS, A-weighted sound pressure measured
over a 24-hour period.
As part of the Enhanced Integrity line of products, 964 and 965
Series strobes exceed UL synchronization requirements (within
10 milliseconds other over a two-hour period) when used with a
synchronization source. Synchronization is important to avoid
epileptic sensitivity.
Integrity strobes are fully compatible with EDWARDS Genesis
signals.
Doubling the distance from the signal to the ear will theoretically
cause a 6dB reduction in the received sound pressure level. The
actual effect depends on the acoustic properties of materials in
the space. Doubling the power output of a device (e.g.: a speaker
from 1W to 2W) will increase the sound pressure level by 3dBA. A
3dBA difference represents a barely noticeable change in volume.
NOTE: The flash intensity of some visible signals may not be adequate
to alert or waken occupants in the protected area. Research indicates
that the intensity of strobe needed to awaken 90% of sleeping persons is
approximately 100 cd. EDWARDS recommends that strobes in sleeping
rooms be rated at at least 110 cd.
WARNING: These devices will not operate without electrical power. As
fires frequently cause power interruptions, further safeguards such as
backup power supplies may be required.

Installation and Mounting
Typical Wiring
All models flush mount to EDWARDS’s 960A-8RF Round Flush
Box. EDWARDS recommends that fire alarm speakers and
speaker/strobes always be installed in accordance with the latest
recognized edition of national and local fire alarm codes.
Connect 964 Series speakers to 25 Vrms audio circuits. Connect
965 Series speakers to 70 Vrms audio circuits. The strobe must be
connected to signal circuits which output a constant (not pulsed)
24 Vdc voltage.

Current Draw Notes and Comments
1. Current values are shown in mA.
2. UL Nameplate Rating can vary from Typical Current due to measurement methods and instruments used.
3. EDWARDS recommends using the Typical Current for system design including
NAC and Power Supply loading and voltage drop calculations.
4. Use the 16 Vdc RMS current ratings for filtered power supply and battery AH
calculations. Use the 16 Vfwr RMS current ratings for unfiltered power supply
calculations.
5. Fuses, circuit breakers and other overcurrent protection devices are typically
rated for current in RMS values. Most of these devices operate based upon
the heating affect of the current flowing through the device. The RMS current
determines the heating affect and therefore, the trip and hold threshold for those
devices.
