Edwards 5520/5521 Series Electronic Signals Distributors
5520/5521 Series

Edwards Signaling 5520 and 5521 Series are low current, high performance, high decibel signals which may be coded or used as a continuous alarm. The 5520 Series is designed to function as either a horn or siren by setting an internal, tamper proof switch. The signal's universal Adaptaplate mounts directly on walls, or on any single-gang opening. Adaptaplate speeds installation by allowing the installer to connect all field wiring to the plate and then finishing the installation by snapping the horn onto the plate. It also mounts to 3 1/4" (83mm), 3 1/2" (89mm), 4" (102mm) octagon, 4" (102mm) square boxes, or equivalent fittings. The signal may be weatherproofed using the Edwards Cat. No. 349 back box. The 5521 operates as a horn only. It is intended for weatherproof applications and must be mounted on the supplied Cat. No. 349 backbox using the universal Adaptaplate (supplied). The 5520 and 5521 Series are used for schools, factories, lumber yards, and other industrial and commercial installations. The horn signal is often used for timing, paging, and alarms. The siren signal is particularly suitable for high noise areas and often used for alerting an evacuation.

5520D Series

Edwards Signaling 5520D series Duotronic signals are 24 Vdc diode-polarized, heavy duty, high-decibel signaling appliances for use in fire alarm applications where a supervised signal is required. Colored sage gray, 5520D Series signals will function as either a horn or siren by setting an internal tamper-proof switch. The 5520D Horn/Siren has no moving parts or contacts to wear out. It requires no maintenance or lubrication. The horn/siren operates with very low current consumption and does not require extra current on start-up. The horn's predominant frequency is 1.1 kHz. When horn output is selected, the frequency rises and falls from 300 to 3000 Hz every 3 seconds. Once mounted, the horn/siren switch is tamperproof. The horn is suitable for coded applications, while the siren is not. The 5520D Series can be made suitable for outdoor weatherproof applications by adding the catalog number 349 Backbox. 5520D signals are ideal for indoor or outdoor applications including schools, factories, commercial occupancies, and lumber yards. They can be used where standard bells or horns are not satisfactory, particularly in areas of high noise level. The unit will function as a Horn or Siren with just the flick of a switch.
