The Firelite BG-12LX is a state-of-the-art, dual-action pull station that includes an addressable interface (mounted inside) for Fire·Lite’s addressable fire alarm control panels (FACPs) Because the BG-12LX is addressable, the control panel can display the exact location of the activated manual station. This leads fire personnel quickly to the location of the alarm.
The Firelite BG-12LX will mount semi-flush into a single-gang, doublegang, or standard 4″ (10.16 cm) square electrical outlet box, or will surface mount to the model SB-10 or SB-I/O surface backbox. If the BG-12LX semi-flush mounted, then the optional trim ring (BG12TR) may be used. The BG12TR needed for semi-flush mounting with 4″ (10.16 cm) or double-gang boxes (not with single-gang boxes).
Pushing in, then pulling down on the handle causes it to latch in the down/activated position. Once latched, the word “ACTIVATED” (in bright yellow) appears at the top of the handle, while a portion of the handle protrudes from the bottom of the station. To reset the station, simply unlock the station with the key and pull the door open. This action resets the handle; closing the door automatically resets the switch. This device also includes Braille text on station handle.
