  • Patent number: 10121343
    Abstract: A notification appliance is disclosed. The notification appliance may be a strobe notification appliance, such as an LED strobe notification appliance. The notification appliance may be wall-mounted or ceiling-mounted. Further, the notification appliance may include an optic that is configured to shape the light output from the notification appliance. For example, in a wall-mount, the optic may be mounted off-axis of a plane defined by a back plate of the notification appliance. Further, the notification appliance may be composed of a back plate, a driver board, and a front housing, with the front housing being attached to one or both of the back plate and the driver board.

  • Publication number: 20180204429
    Abstract: A strobe notification appliance and an emergency lighting appliance that output directional information are disclosed. The strobe notification appliance may generate, in addition to notification of the fire condition, directional information (e.g., such as away from the unavailable exit paths and/or toward the preferred exit paths). For example, the strobe notification appliance includes a strobe element outputting fire notification information and a directional light element outputting directional information. The emergency lighting appliance may also operate in different modes, such as a power failure mode in which the emergency lighting appliance outputs light responsive to a power failure, and an alert mode (e.g., fire alert or mass notification alert mode) in which the emergency lighting appliance outputs light to convey directional information in order to guide occupants of a building. In this way, the occupants may be notified of an alarm event and notified of available or unavailable exit paths.

  • Publication number: 20170213429
    Abstract: A strobe notification appliance that outputs directional information is disclosed. The strobe notification appliance may generate, in addition to notification of the fire condition, directional information (e.g., such as away from the unavailable exit paths and/or toward the preferred exit paths). In one instance, the strobe notification appliance includes a strobe element (such as a flash tube strobe element or LED strobe element) outputting fire notification information and a directional light element (such as one or more LEDs) outputting directional information. In another instance, the strobe notification appliance includes the strobe element that outputs both fire notification information and directional information. In this way, occupants of a building may be notified of a fire and notified of available or unavailable exit paths.
