[vc_accordion][vc_accordion_tab title=”IS-MB1 Beacon, Barrier Recommendations” open=”0″]

Option 1 – single beacon installation:

The IS-MB1 Beacon requires a single intrinsic safety barrier with safety/entity parameters not exceeding the following values:
Uo/Voc=28V, Io/Isc=660mA, Po/Po=1.2W.
Suitable barrier: GMI D1048S / D1049S / D5048S / D5049S using output “A” terminals in each case.

Option 2 – multiple beacons, use of multi-channel barrier for economy:

Suitable barrier: GMI D1042Q (quad channel) with each output separately powering an individual IS-MB1 beacon.

Note that while each beacon has it’s own dedicated barrier channel, a complete failure of the barrier module will affect all alarm notifications associated with it.

IS-MC1 COMBINATION BEACON & SOUNDER

Barrier Recommendations

Option 1 – mutual two-wire power connection:


The IS-MC1 Combination Beacon & Sounder may be powered from a single intrinsic safety barrier providing 16VDC @ 35mA and with safety/entity parameters not exceeding the following values:
Uo/Voc=28V, Io/Isc=93mA, Po/Po=660mW.
Suitable barriers: P&F KFDO-SD2-Ex1.1045; MTL5025
Note that failure of the single barrier will negate both alarm notification modes.

Option 2 – high integrity four-wire connection, beacon and sounder powered separately:

The beacon requires a single intrinsic safety barrier with safety/entity parameters not exceeding the following values:
Uo/Voc=28V, Io/Isc=660mA, Po/Po=1.2W.
Suitable barrier: GMI D1048S / D1049S / D5048S / D5049S using output “A” terminals in each case.

The sounder requires a single intrinsic safety barrier with safety/entity parameters not exceeding the following values:
Uo/Voc=28V, Io/Isc=93mA, Po/Po=660mW.
Suitable barrier: GMI D1048S / D1049S / D5048S / D5049S using output “C” terminals in each case.

Note that the failure of one barrier will leave the other alarm notification mode working.

Option 3 – multiple IS-MC1 beacon & sounder combos, use of multi-channel barrier for economy:

Suitable barrier: GMI D1042Q (quad channel) with each output separately powering either a beacon or a sounder. Under no circumstances may two barrier channel outputs be connected in parallel to power one beacon-sounder combination.

Note that while each beacon and sounder has it’s own dedicated barrier channel, a complete failure of the barrier module will negate all alarm notifications associated with it.

BA386 I.S. LED FLASHING BEACON

  • Intrinsically safe
  • FM and ATEX certification
  • Choice of five colors
  • Two double flashes per second
  • IP56 environmental rating
  • Compatible with a wide range of barriers
  • Can power BR385 sounder with same safety barrier


The BA386 provides a bright flashing warning signal in a plant or processing area where ambient noise levels may drown out an audible alarm. It is significantly less expensive than traditional Xenon devices, yet has a similar light output and flashes more rapidly – making it more immediately noticable. Available in five colors to enable multi-stage alarm level protocols. Factory Mutual and ATEX intrinsic safety certification enable it to be used in virtually any classified hazardous location.

Can be used in conjunction with a BR385 alarm sounder using a single galvanically isolated barrier. The BA386 beacon includes terminals to power the sounder, and for an external push button to silence the sounder. The silence time is adjustable from 1 to 30 minutes. We can even supply a kit to combine the two units.
