The Edwards EGCSVWF Genesis LED EGCS Series speakers and speaker-strobes combine high performance output with a sleek low profile design and energy-efficient technology that makes them less expensive to install and operate. High performance LEDs require fewer power supplies, backup power, and batteries. These new appliances are designed with energy-efficiency, and life safety in mind.
Speakers feature selectable wattage taps, while speaker strobes allow for both wattage and light output levels to be configured in the field. Both settings remain clearly visible — even after final installation. Speakers are also capable of both 25V and 70V and voltage in a single model with a field selectable switch. All this flexibility allows devices to be easily fine-tuned to exactly how they’re needed to perform. All Genesis speakers include a DC blocking capacitor to allow electrical supervision of the audio distribution circuit.
EGCS Series speakers produce crisp, clear voice audio output that is highly intelligible over large areas. In an emergency, intelligibility is critical to life safety. Understanding the content of the message is as important as knowing there is an emergency. Intelligibility is measured in Speech Transmission Index and anything above .76 is considered excellent. EGCS Series speakers deliver audio with an STI of .81 ensuring the message is clear
Serviceability is another area where EGCS Series appliances shine. The universal room side wiring plate allows for preinstallation and electrical wiring as well as checking continuity with the included diagnostics check bar. EGCS Series devices can then be easily snapped into place with the confidence of knowing the wiring is correct. The innovative under-cover diagnostic test points provide easy access to device circuit testing while mounted.
