NAC10/A NAC Power Booster Panel 10 Amp / 4 - 2.5 Amp Circuits
NAC/10A is a cost effective 10 Amp Power Limited Voltage Regulated remote Notification Appliance Control (NAC) expander unit. It may be connected to any UL Listed 12 or 24 Volt DC Fire Alarm Control Panel.
The NAC/10A supports all ADA requirements and will provide power to ancillary equipment with two Aux outputs (one automatically battery backed-up and one not). Each Aux. Output is rated for 1 Amp. The unit comes with either four Notification Appliance Circuits Class B (Style Y) or four Notification Appliance Circuits Class A (Style Z). All circuits are rated for a maximum of 2.5 Amps each (not to exceed 10 Amps per supply).
The NAC outputs can be independently programmed for Steady, Temporal or Strobe Synchronization. The outputs may also be programmed as "follower circuits" that will code following their inputs (eg: Sync in = Sync out).
Any two NAC Circuits may be paralleled to supply a single output of 4 Amps. Trouble is reported either through a set of common Trouble Dry Contacts or through the Input 1 or Input 2 terminations. Inputs can be programmed to trip any combination of up to 4 outputs.
The unit features a "Loop Output" trouble memory for aid in troubleshooting problem field circuits. Charges up to 65 Amp Hour Batteries with a programmable AC Fail delay.

Kingfisher Company, inc., synchronized strobes offer an easy way to comply with ADA recommendations concerning photosensitive epilepsy.
Weatherproof Speakers, Strobes, Speaker Strobes and Mounting Accessories
All strobe models are UL dual listed - meeting both UL1638 and UL1971 requirements. As dual listed appliances, these weatherproof strobes, horn strobes and speaker strobes are listed for outdoor applications under UL 1638 as well as under UL 1971, the Standard for Safety Signaling Devices for Hearing Impaired. With an extended temperature range of –31°F to 150°F (-35°C to 66°C), Kingfisher Company inc.'s, weatherproof appliances meet or exceed UL outdoor test requirements for rain, humidity and corrosion resistance while providing multiple strobe intensity options, including the highest strobe ratings available for area coverage per NFPA 72 strobe spacing tables (up to 185 candela for wall mounting and 177 candela for ceiling mounting).
To enable weatherproof mounting, Kingfisher Company inc., provides the industry's widest choice of mounting options for surface or unique semi-flush installation. Models are available for surface mounting to Kingfisher Company, inc., weatherproof back-boxes on walls or ceilings.
The optional KFWP-KIT allows the weatherproof back-boxes (KFIOB, KFWPBB or KFWPSBB) to be mounted to a recessed electrical box for concealed conduit installation. For semi-flush installation, the KFWPA* and KFWFPA* kits allow a customer to mount the weatherproof appliances to a recessed electrical box without the need for an external weatherproof backbox. See the Back-boxes, Plates and Gaskets Table on page four of this document for a summarization of these mounting options and the required accessories.
All models may be synchronized using the Kingfisher Company, inc';s, KFDSM Sync Modules, Kingfisher Company inc.'s NAC10 Power Supplies or other manufacturers panels incorporating the Wheelock Patented Sync Protocol. The horn output of horn strobes can be independently controlled on 2-wire circuits using the Wheelock patented sync protocol. KFMTWP horn strobe models are 4-wire appliances; the strobes can be synchronized while the audible can be connected to a coded fire alarm system or can be set to produce any of eight selectable tones.
