Up to 20, CFDAU30 can be installed per loop and can be connected to any Cooper addressable fire detection panel.

The CFDAU30 has in build short circuit isolators and can be either hard addressed using the Cooper hand held programmer or soft addressed by the Cooper addressable panel.

The CFDAU30 delivers clear; intelligible voice alarm messages to ensure reliable and consistent protection for both life safety and property. (It is well documented that only 13% of people react to bells, whilst 70% react to a voice message).

The CFDAU30 has been developed to replace sounders and speech sounders in many applications where voice alarm would be preferable. The CFDAU30 is a complete VA system in a single, wall mounted box and comes complete with, 3 pre-recorded messages, fire interface, dual 30W monitored amplifiers, power supply, monitored battery charger and inputs for non monitored paging and music.

Speaker Monitoring

The speaker circuits are dc monitored for simplicity, allowing speaker circuits to be commissioned using a simple multi-meter. Each speaker requires a blocking capacitor, this is typically 1uF 250Vdc for ceiling speakers and 2.2uF 250Vdc for Horn Speakers

Messages

All messages are WindowsTM WAV files, and are up loaded to the on board Flash memory using a specially developed PC application and a serial port (including USB types). The unit holds three messages, with a combined playing time of over 65 seconds.

Cables

Cables between the Fire Panel, Emergency Microphone and Speakers must be fire rated for standards compliance. The system is designed to run with all CWZ rated cables including Mineral Insulated types, for maximum run lengths consult the chart. Each speaker circuit can have up to two spurs as shown below for maximum flexibility.
