Sounders and sounder beacons debut at RS Components

The Eaton X10 range of industrial sounders and sounder beacons has been added to RS Components’ comprehensive range of industrial signalling equipment.

X10 devices are rugged in construction and flexible in design – making them equally at home in a smart factory or the harshest operating environment.

Whether the signalling application is newbuild or retrofit, the Eaton X10 range offers high reliability and long service life.

All X10 devices come with a 10-year warranty.

The X10 range of sounders and sounder beacons is rated to IP69 and designed to give clear and dependable audio-visual indications in the most demanding industrial environments.

They can be integrated into a wider automation system or used as standalone signalling devices.

Typical applications include washdown/jet wash and steam cleaning areas in food processing, as well as areas exposed to extreme weather conditions such as loading bays, construction compounds, aggregates and cement production.

These sounders and sounder beacons also fit seamlessly into automated industrial systems, where Programmable Logic Controllers can be used to control the devices for process control line optimisation.

Eaton’s X10 range features an innovative 5-joule equivalent LED modular beacon capable of multiple functionality and has a low start-up surge with a range of dB(A) outputs.

Highly flexible, it has a wide voltage range of 10–60V DC and 10–30V AC 115/230V AC and can provide up to a four-stage alarm, with multiple alert and control possibilities for both AC and DC variants.

Specifiers can choose from three basic housing sizes – Mini (100dB), Midi (110dB) and Maxi (120dB) – to match application requirements.

The device housings are made of rugged, UV stabilised polycarbonate ASA and are IK08 impact resistant and dual IP rated to IP66 and IP69K. The Mini and Midi units can operate in temperatures between -40°c to +70°c, while the Maxi can withstand -30°c to


X10 sounders and sounder beacons are available in a choice of four fade resistant housing colours, and there is also a choice of six different lens colours for the beacons.

They are shipping now from RS in the EMEA region.
