The Commander4 Series Ceiling-mount Strobes and
Horn Strobe Combinations (GC Series) offer
dependable audible and visual alarms, low current draw,
and a minimum flash rate of 1 Hz regardless of the input
voltage.
These models offer field-selectable options of 15 cd,
30 cd, 75 cd, 95 cd, 115 cd, and 150 cd.
The horns provide a selection of high or low dBA and a
selection of 2400 Hz (remote signaling) or a low
frequency broad band from 1500 Hz to 3000 Hz
mechanical sounding (evacuation) tone where doors
could be a problem. These models are easily fieldchangeable from Temporal Code 3 to a continuous tone.
These devices come standard with a 4 in. (10.2 cm)
mounting plate, and incorporate the popular
SuperSlide™ feature that allows you to easily test for
supervision.

Technical Specifications
Although the AVS44 modules can be used with these
devices, the AVSM modules are recommended in loops
where no HS24 or ST24 devices are used.

*Operating the horn in this mode at this voltage does not meet the minimum UL
reverberant sound level required for public mode fire protection service. These
settings are acceptable only for private mode fire alarm use. Chime mode is only
acceptable for private use.
Continuous 2400 MHz Mode

Sound Output (maximum range)
at 10 ft (3 m):
High output: 84 dBA
Low output: 76 dBA
Note
The sound output for the temporal (Code 3)
mode is rated lower because the time that
the horn is off is averaged into the sound
output rating. While the horn is producing a
tone in Temporal mode, its sound pressure
is the same as the Continuous mode.
Power Requirements
Current
(operating strobe):
15 cd = 72 mA; 30 cd = 88 mA;
75 cd = 176 mA; 95 cd = 200 mA;
115 cd = 214 mA, 150 cd = 286 mA
Regulated Voltage (input):
24 VDC or FWR
