Ultra Electronics USSI announces UL1480 Listing and Class 1, Division 2 Hazardous Location Certification on HyperSpike® TCPA-10 speakers

28 June 2018

Ultra Electronics USSI announces today that its HyperSpike® TCPA-10 Directional Speaker Arrays have acquired UL1480 listing and Class 1, Division 2 Groups A, B, C, and D Hazardous Location Certification. This new certification not only fulfils the NFPA 72 recommendation for use with fire panels, but also provides safety compliant mass notification solutions into oil, gas, petrochemical and other hazardous locations.

The TCPA-10 is a highly efficient indoor and outdoor directional speaker for general public notification and emergency signalling. Utilizing patented HyperSpike® technology, this speaker projects clear, intelligible voice commands, and penetrating alert tones with a maximum output of 139dB.

Available in distributed audio, 4 and 8 ohm configurations, the TCPA-10 can be directly powered from a fire alarm control panel or through commercially-available amplification systems. HyperSpike® best-in-class acoustic coverage allows for fewer units to be installed in large indoor and outdoor facilities; lowering installation and long-term life cycle maintenance costs.

Patrick Allison, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for USSI commented:

“HyperSpike® industry-leading, intelligible mass notification products are ideal for clear and consistent messaging in high background noise and hazardous locations. We are pleased to offer another solution to support and upgrade the safety of high-risk environments.”

Typical indoor and outdoor applications of the HyperSpike® TCPA-10 speaker include: hazardous environments, campus communications, manufacturing facilities, fire and life safety, warehouses, corporate grounds, airports and airport hangars, arenas and stadiums, parking structures and many more.
