Cooper-Wheelock
AS/AH Series
Single & Multi-Candela
AS Series Audible Strobe &
AH Series Audible Appliances
Description
The 2-wire Cooper-Wheelock AS Series audible/
visual and AH Series audible notification appliances
offer many features with low current draws.
Strobe options for wall-mounted models include
15/75 cd or field-selectable Multi-Candela strobes
that may be set to 15, 30, 75, or 110 cd.
Ceiling mounted models incorporate field-selected
strobe settings of 15, 30, 75 or 95 cd.
The audible notification appliances provide a fieldselectable choice of either a continuous horn tone or
temporal pattern (per ANSI S3.41) when constant
voltage is supplied by the notification appliance circuit. Each tone has three dBA settings to choose
from. Additionally, the audible tone may be silenced
while maintaining strobe activation.
All models may be synchronized when the models
are used in conjunction with the Cooper-Wheelock
SM and DSM Sync Modules.
The synchronization of the continuous horn tone
provides the temporal pattern mandated by NFPA
72 for fire evacuation signaling. This ensures a
clearly distinguishable temporal pattern when two or
more audible devices are within hearing distance. If
the horn tones are not synchronized, the temporal
patterns may overlap. At the same time, the strobes
will also be synchronized. This process is in compliance with ADA recommendations regarding photosensitive epilepsy and NFPA and UFC standards
required when installing two or more visual appliances within a common field of view.

Description (Continued)
General Notes:
• Strobes are designed to flash at one flash per second
minimum over the Regulated Voltage Range. Note that
NFPA-72 (1999) specifies a flash rate of one to two
flashes per second and ADA guidelines specify a flash
rate of one to three flashes per second.
• All candela ratings represent minimum effective strobe
intensity based on UL Standard 1971.
• Series AS strobe products are Listed under UL Standard
1971 for indoor use with a temperature range of 32° F to
120° F (0° C to 49° C) and a maximum humidity of 93%
(+/- 2%).
• Series AH horns are Listed under UL Standard 464 for
audible signal appliances (indoor use only).
• Series AH-24WP audible appliances are Listed under UL
Standard 464 for indoor/outdoor use with a temperature
range of –31° F to 150° F
(-35° C to 66° C) and a maximum humidity of 95%.
• “Regulated Voltage Range” is the state-of-the-art technology used by UL to identify the voltage range. Prior to this
technology, UL used the term, “Listed Voltage Range.”

Architects and Engineers Specifications
The notification appliances shall be Cooper-Wheelock Series AS audible/strobe appliances and Series AH audible appliances or
approved equals. The Series AS appliance shall be listed under UL Standard 1971 (Emergency Devices for the Hearing Impaired)
for indoor Fire Protection Service. The Series AH Audible shall be UL Listed under Standard 464 (Fire Protective Signaling). Both
shall meet the requirements of FCC Part 15 Class B. All inputs shall be compatible with standard reverse polarity supervision of
circuit wiring by a fire alarm control panel (FACP).
The audible portion of the appliance shall have a minimum of three (3) field selectable settings for dBA levels and shall have a
choice of continuous or temporal pattern audible output.
The strobe portion of the appliance shall produce a flash rate of one (1) flash per second over the Regulated Voltage Range and
shall incorporate a Xenon flashtube enclosed in a rugged Lexan® lens. The series AS shall be of low current design. Where MultiCandela appliances are specified, the strobe intensity shall have a minimum of four (4) field selectable settings and shall be rated
per UL Standard 1971 at: 15, 30, 75, and 110 candela for wall mount, or 15, 30, 75, and 95 candela for ceiling mount. The selector
switch for selecting the candela shall be tamper resistant and not accessible from the front of the appliance. The 15/75 candela
strobe shall be specified when 15 cd UL Standard 1971 Listing with 75 cd on-axis is required (e.g. ADA compliance).
When synchronization is required, the appliance shall be compatible with Cooper-Wheelock’s SM and DSM Sync Modules. The
strobes shall not drift out of synchronization at any time during operation. If the sync module fails to operate, i.e. contacts remain
closed), the strobe shall revert to a non-synchronized flash-rate. The appliance shall also be designed so that the audible signal
may be silenced while maintaining strobe activation.
The Series AS audible/strobe and Series AH audible shall incorporate a patented universal mounting plate that shall allow mounting on a single-gang, double-gang, 4-inch square, 100 mm European type backbox, or the SHBB surface backbox. If required, an
NATP (Notification Appliance Trimplate) shall be provided.
All notification appliances shall be backward compatible.
