Explosion proof electronic replacement for inefficient electro-mechanical sounders

The HOOTRONIC sounder electronically creates traditional warning sounds such as a bell, siren, hooter or buzzer.

While widely used for more than 100 years, the reliability, performance, maintenance and running costs of electro-mechanical devices has always been a concern. Using the latest in SMD class D amplifier technology and digital to analogue conversion, the Hootronic faithfully replicates, user-selectable from one product, all these sounds with the reliability, performance and functionality of a modern electronic sounder.

Three stages are provided, enabling a further two remotely selectable sounds to be configured for each primary sound if required. Sample audio clips of each sound can be played from the E2S web site, www.e2s.com/x65-hootronic.htm.

With output levels of up to 117.5dB at 1 metre, the Hootronic surpasses the performance and effectiveness of the outdated electro-mechanical device it replaces. A volume control enables the output to be matched to the operating environment. It is continuously rated, operates from 24VDC, 115 or 230VAC, the inrush start-up and operating current consumption is low, it requires no maintenance and is sealed to IP66/67. A very large termination area aids installation and gives room for multiple cables if required.
