The VALKYRIE AB is a Wall Mounted Addressable Visual Indicating Device, with low power consumption. Up to 32 individually addressed beacons can be installed per loop occupying address 94 to 125. The address is set using switches 1 to 5 of the 8 way DIL switch.
When individual address reporting is not required, VALKYRIE AB can be configured as a Shadow Beacon. In this case sounders do not occupy an address in the loop thus freeing up addresses for more detection devices. Shadow beacons do not report back to the control panel so their presence on the loop is not monitored. Shadow beacons draw current from the loop (3 mA in alarm) and must be included in loop load calculations.
When VADs are not needed the VALKYRIE AB is the best solution as it is produced using the latest high intensity LED technology and uses extremely low levels of current consumption providing a highly visible flash.
