By PSW Staff • February 24, 2009 The new Production Intercom Blazon 180 - front and back views Production Intercom has introduced the Blazon 180 intercom signal lamp, offering the features of previous Blazon models but with the strobe changed to a rectangular 2.8-inch by 1-inch dimension and placed on the face of the extrusion, thereby reducing the visibility of the visual cue to 180 degrees. Blazon 180 is triggered by the same voltage that lights the normal signal lamps in the intercom system. Whenever any signal lamp button on any station in the same circuit is pressed, the Blazon 180 will be activated. The xenon lamp is permanently connected. Circuitry is provided to sustain the Blazon 180 for four seconds after being triggered. The xenon lamp has a flash rate of 2 Hz, providing eight flashes per cycle. The Blazon 180 is connected to the headset intercom system in the same manner as a belt pack. It has dual three-pin XLR connectors on the rear panel. By convention (to differentiate from microphone inputs) the female connector is designated as input. The male connector is provided for looping onwards to the next station in the system. Reversing these connections will not affect operation. Blazon 180 is powered by the intercom power supply and requires no batteries or other external power source. In its ready mode it draws only 21.1 mA; with the strobe active, 120 mA.Â When calculating power supply requirements, Blazon 180 can be considered as the approximate equivalent of three to four belt packs. The unit is very sturdy, with ribbed, extruded aluminum case, glass-filled nylon end bezels, internal support system for the PC board, and high-quality XLR-type connectors. Blazon 180 is compatible with Clear-Com and other (unbalanced 200-watt) headset intercom systems. Production Intercom Website Comments Have something to say about this PSW content? Leave a comment!
