The Directional Speaker (DS100X) is an outdoor or indoor speaker that can be used as a warning and alerting device in hazardous (classified) locations. Use the DS100X as a standalone device or connect to another Federal Signal speaker (the controlling speaker) to broadcast high-quality, high-powered tones, pre-recorded voice messages, and live PA. Add a Federal Signal light to the speaker to include visual indicators. The DS100X has an internal 100-watt amplifier/driver to deliver tone warnings and intelligible voice messages from the controlling speaker’s stored memory. The DS100X is powered from either 120/240 Vac or 24 Vdc. When the DS100X is powered from AC, it can use the Interconnect Board to activate AC-powered visual alert devices. When the DS100X is powered from DC, it brings power in from an outside source.

The DS100X has a 1/2-inch NPT opening on the top of the speaker for simple installation of pipe mount devices such as strobes. The bottom of the speaker has three 3/4-inch NPT openings to allow access to power, relay outputs, and activation inputs. The DS100X comes with an adjustable stainless steel wall mount bracket that allows the angle of the speaker to be adjusted. Optional pole mount brackets are available for small and large diameter poles.
