The Edwards G1WA-VMA Genesis line of fire alarm and mass notification/emergency
communications (ECS/MNS) signals are among the smallest,
most compact audible-visible life safety signaling devices in the
world. About the size of a deck of playing cards, these devices are
designed to blend with any decor.
Edwards G1WA-VMA Genesis strobes do not require bulky specular reflectors and lenses.
Instead, an exclusive cavity design conditions light to produce
a highly controlled distribution pattern. Significant development
efforts employing this new technology have given rise to a new
benchmark in strobe performance – FullLight technology.
FullLight strobe technology produces a smooth light distribution
pattern without the spikes and voids characteristic of specular reflectors. This ensures the entire coverage area receives consistent
illumination from the strobe flash. As a result, Genesis strobes with
FullLight technology go well beyond the UL-1971 and ULC-S526
light distribution requirements.
Genesis strobes and horn-strobes offer selectable candela output
by means of a conveniently-located switch on the side of the
device. Models are also available that offer fixed 15/75 cd output.
The candela output setting remains clearly visible even after final
installation, yet it stays locked in place to prevent unauthorized
