Why pay premiums for features that many people don't use? That is why we have developed the new SA-385 Alert. In our research we discovered there were certain features being "under utilized" by many in the industry. The Alert represents the culmination of our research done with end-users on the features that are most highly desired while eliminating the price inflating under utilized features. The result is a console mount siren that offers end-users just what they need. This new, stylish, economical 100-watt SA-385 Alert siren with P.A. features easy to use controls such as a four position rotary switch with intuitive selection of siren tones and a push button override for Manual and Air Horn. The P.A. system includes a noise-canceling microphone and face mounted volume control knob. The output diagnostic status is indicated on the face and the unit is LED back-lit. The siren is also equipped with the Horn Ring Cycler 2 (HRC2) for safe hands-free control of the siren during extreme driving, DIP switch selections for quick and easy customization during installation, and an exposed in-line fuse for protection. A couple of the major changes that provided some of the greatest cost saving included setting the siren output capabilities to 100-watts and eliminating the Radio feature. For those currently installing only one 100-watt speaker with their siren, this change has no effect on the sound level produced. The Radio feature was removed as a result of more and more emergency response personnel are equipped with personal radios and the need for broadcasting radio communications over the siren speaker has diminished.
