Emergency Strobe
Life safety emergency notification appliance for occupants AND rescue responders

The Philips Bodine BDFS Emergency Door Frame Strobe is a highly visible, system-integrated, Egress Marking Visible Notification Appliance (EMVNA). Upon activation of the fire/security system, the BDFS unit responds in sync with all other attached appliances by flashing/strobing a highly visible light by illuminating the light strand luminaries attached to each appliance. The illuminated light strands outline the frame of the doorway (or other areas where installed) indicating the proper path to safe egress and shall strobe during the entire duration of the activated fire/security system.

The BDFS mounted within a junction boxThe BDFS Emergency Strobe is a current limited 12 - 24 volts input driven appliance with low-power consumption and is hard-wired as a primary signaling device. It complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements for visible signaling appliances, flashing at 1 Hz over the strobes operating voltage range in approved fire systems.

Just like traditional visual notification appliances, its local system synchronized flashing signals are remotely initiated, either automatically from detectors in the fire/security system, manually from pull-stations located throughout a facility, or from the system’s integrated access control panel. The Emergency Strobe is easily configured to synchronize to the integrated system with all of the other NAC-supervised visual notification appliances in the connected zone or line of sight.
