System Sensor B200S

Intelligent Addressable Sounder Base

  • Factory New
  • Material Obsolete
Brand: System Sensor Part #: 48015 Categories: , Manufacturer Part #: B200S


The B200S sounder base series is designed for new and existing dwelling unit applications. It offers maximum flexibility in installation, configuration, and operation to meet or exceed UL 268 and UL 464 requirements.

The sounder base “listens in” to the communication between the attached sensor head and the fire alarm control panel (FACP) to adopt the same address as the detector, but as a unique device type on the loop. The FACP can then use that address to command an individual sounder — or a group of sounders — to activate. The command set from the panel can be tailored to the specific event, allowing selection of volume, tone, and group. In addition, some FACPs will enable custom tone patterns.

The B200S series sounder bases recognize the System Sensor synchronization protocol. This enables it to be used as a component of the general evacuation signal — along with other System Sensor horns, horn strobes, and chimes — when connected to a power supply or FACP output capable of generating the System Sensor synchronization pulses.

The B200S series offers several key advantages. The sounder base employs a separate mounting plate that installs on various junction box sizes to eliminate unsightly surface-mount boxes. The mounting plate enables pre-wiring of all connections to speed and simplify installation. The housing also locks with the mounting plate using two retaining screws, for added tamper resistance.
