sound-producing diaphragms. Figure 9-10 is an
illustration of a motor-operated horn.
Sirens
Sirens are used in very noisy spaces or to sound
urgent alarms. The sound is produced by an electric
motor driving a multiblade rotor past a series of ports
or holes in the housing. The air being forced through
the ports gives a siren sound, the frequency of which
depends upon the number of ports, the number of
rotor blades, and the motor speed. Figure 9-11 is an
illustration of a siren.
Electronic Signal Units
27.301
The IC/E3D2 electronic signal unit (fig. 9-12) is
designed for use with alarm switchboards. The unit

consists of a solid-state oscillator and an amplifier.
The unit is capable of generating three distinct tones:
a wailing or siren tone, a steady tone, and a pulsating
tone.
VISUAL SIGNALS
Visual sig nals ar e used with many alar m,
safety , and warning sy stems to prov ide an
additional means of  identifying  the  alarm
being sounded. Audible and v isual sig nals are
often used tog ether . In noisy spac es, audible
signals are supplemented by visual signals;

and in brightly lighted spaces, visual signals are
supplemented  by  audible  signals.  In  many
instruments, the same audible device is used in
combination with several visual signals. The
principal  type  of  visual  signals  are  lamp
indicators.
Standard  watertight  lamp  indicators  are
designed as single-dial, two-dial, four-dial, and
six-dial units. Two 115-volt lamps are connected
in parallel and mounted behind each dial. The
use of two lamps in parallel provides protection
against the loss of illumination in case one lamp
bums out. A colored-glass disk and sheet-brass
target engraved with the alarm identification
are illuminated from the rear by the two lamps.
The  115-volt  lamps  are  in  parallel  with
