220-C Mass Notification Sign Series

General Description

Longer, brighter, better! LED’s model MNS-220C is similar to the LEDarray, but is also available in a 24vdc model. The new, longer length provides more space to display your messages in one line. Brighter, tri-color LED’s come standard on this model, allowing your emergency messages to be color-coded if so desired. The MNS-220C/24vdc makes it easy to accommodate installations that require battery backup.

Perfect for employee and patron communication.   For use in schools, colleges, malls, and even for military applications, the 220cArray provides a secure way to deliver important messages to the public at large.

The 220cArray can be used on a existing LAN, for announcements, to direct pedestrian traffic, to display time and date, and to provide any messaging important to your facility needs.  When used with our MNS controller in a Mass Notification System, you can easily deliver important emergency and security messages with a simple dry contact closure from your facility fire/security panel.

These units are available with a plug-in 115vac transformer for connection to an ordinary power outlet, suitable for most applications. There also available as an option, a 24vdc voltage converter. This allows the 220cArray display to be operated from a common 24vdc circuit, making the suitable for use where battery backup is required.
