Product information

- Field-configurable light and sound output settings add to their onsite flexibility, while optional FIRE or ALERT markings and colored lenses make them ideal for either emergency communications/ mass notification (ECS/MNS) or fire alarm applications.

- These appliances are suitable for indoor and outdoor applications, and are ideal for challenging conditions such as parking garages and process areas. They are listed for mounting on the ceiling or the wall, and thanks to an ingenious full backplane sealing gasket, can be installed to recessed (in-the-pour/block) electrical boxes. WG4 signals also mount to suitable surface boxes served by raceways. Optional color-matched trim skirts provide a clean, finished appearance. All appliance wiring is accomplished room-side for easy installation.

- WG4 Series appliances feature highly intelligible and efficient mylar-cone loudspeakers. These are dual-voltage (25.2V or 70.7V), and have field-selectable output taps ranging 80.8 dBA to 90.0 dBA. The multi-candela strobes are available with clear or amber lenses and in two output categories – standard and high-output. They are precision-timed to meet UL 1971 synchronization standards, and field-configurable for one of four candela intensities. Wattage and candela settings are viewable even after installation through an innovative sealed viewport display

- Speaker Application

Outdoor Rated Speakers and Strobes Genesis WG4 Series

The suggested sound pressure level for each signaling zone used with alert or alarm signals is a minimum of 15 dB above the average ambient sound level or 5 dB above the maximum sound level having a duration of at least 60 seconds, whichever is greater. This is measured 5 feet (1.5 m) above the floor. Doubling the distance the signal to the ear will theoretically cause a 6dB reduction in the received sound pressure level. The actual effect depends on the acoustic properties of materials in the space. Doubling the power output of a device (e.g.: a speaker 1W to 2W) will increase the sound pressure level by 3dBA.

- Strobe Application

Genesis clear-lensed strobes are UL 1971-listed for use indoors as wall- or ceiling-mounted public-mode notification appliances for the hearing impaired, and UL 1638-listed for outdoor applications. Prevailing codes require strobes to be used where ambient noise conditions exceed specified levels, where occupants use hearing protection, and in areas of public accommodation. UL 1638-listed colored lens strobe lights are available for ECS/MNS and outdoor applications.

Visible appliance synchronization is required to avoid causing issues with people who have Photosensitive Epilepsy (PSE). Notification appliance synchronization is also generally required when more than one strobe appliance are in the same field of view any one location. All Genesis strobes meet UL synchronization requirements (within 10 milliseconds over a two-hour period) when used with a synchronization source.

- ECS/MNS Application

Genesis ECS/MNS appliances bring the same high-performance life safety features and unobtrusive design to mass notification applications. Standard models are available with clear or amber lenses and optional ALERT housing labels, they are ideal for applications that require differentiation between life safety and mass notification alerts. Appliances with red, green or blue lenses are also available. Contact Kidde Customer Service for details.

Installation and Mounting

WG4 signals are rated for outdoor use and are suitable for indoor or outdoor applications on walls or ceilings. For surface-mounting in outdoor or wet applications, appliances must be mounted to an Kidde 74347U electrical box. In dry conditions, they are compatible with standard 4-inch by 1½-inch deep electrical boxes. When using the optional WG4WTS or WG4RTS trim skirt, a 74347U or 2-1/8" deep box must be used.

The Genesis WG4 Speaker-Strobe may be wall- or ceiling-mounted, and may be placed in one of four positions: strobe above, strobe below, and strobe to either side. The shallow depth of Genesis devices leaves room behind the appliance for extra wiring.
