The Cygnus first aid alert point has been designed to operate differently from all other types of alerts and alarms. Once triggered the fi rst aid alert will beep intermittently every 8seconds at 85 decibels. The control panel notifies the user the exact location within a zone where the alarm has been triggered. This helps to quickly identify and narrow down the search area. These devices are used where sites require designated first aid points and alarms. This device uses the same battery pack as the CYG2 alarm and links in to the fire alarm system the same way as all other devices. It also maintains an IP65 ingress rating.
