The Federal Signal 2001-130 and Equinox sirens is a high power, rotating, unidirectional outdoor warning siren. The  high-decibel output provides maximum coverage with minimum installation cost. Radio/cellular/satellite or wireless IP activation can further minimize installation costs by eliminating the need for leased dedicated control lines.
The siren’s projector produces a 60-degree projection of sound which rotates at 3 RPM and can produce three distinct warning signals: steady, wail and fast wail. The siren will supply a minimum of 15 minutes of full power output from its batteries after AC power loss. The siren controls are available with battery operation, solar, AC operation, and AC operation with battery back-up, one-way and two-way radio control, wired or wireless Ethernet, satellite/cellular or landline. The 2001 Series is offered in low frequency (490 Hz) or mid-range frequency (790 Hz). 
Ideal applications for this warning siren include hazardous weather conditions, fires, floods, chemical spills and other types of community or facility emergencies.


Sirens can be powered from 120VAC, 240VAC, with battery back-up or battery operation. Solar powering can also be provided
