Operating Modes (refer to Installation Manual):

• Normal Mode: Provides constant 24 VDC output upon initiation by a voltage to input IN1 or IN2 or by a contact opening on DRY1 or DRY2. The unit returns to standby mode when the input is deactivated.

• Wheelock Sync Mode: Provides signals for synchronization of patented Wheelock audible and strobe notification appliances. Audibles can also be silenced in this mode while the strobes continue to flash.

• In>Out Sync Mode: Accepts a synchronization signal on the input to provide a coded output or synchronized output. This signal may come from a FACP, another POWERPATH or a Wheelock DSM synchronization module. Caution: Do not use strobes on coded output circuits.

• True Input Follower Mode: Accepts a coded signal on the input to provide a coded output with the same timing as the input. The signal may come from a FACP, another POWERPATH or other coded source. Caution: Do not use strobes on coded output circuits.

• Temporal Mode: Codes the output voltage in a code-3 temporal pattern to drive audible appliances such as horns, bells or chimes. Caution: Do not use strobes on coded output circuits

  • Wheelock Fire Alarm Power Supply 120V (Black, 8 Amp) PS-8-B-LP


The Wheelock Fire Alarm Power Supply 120V (Black, 8 Amp) PS-8-B-LP is a remote power supply or battery charger designed in a low profile cabinet that is used for supervision and expanded power driving capability of fire alarm Notification Appliance Circuits (NAC). This power supply is filtered, regulated and provides 8 amps of power distributed across 4 outputs.

The Wheelock POWERPATH NAC series is one of the best power supplies in the industry. It can accommodate 7 AH batteries inside its lockable chassis. Using an external battery cabinet it can charge up to 33 AH batteries (pending UL testing). Two FACP NAC circuits or two “Dry” contact initiating circuits can be connected to the inputs. These inputs can then be directed to control supervision and power delivery to any combination of the four (4) outputs. Each output is rated at 3.0 Amps (Class “B”) or (Class “A”) and can be programmed to generate a steady or Code 3 temporal horn sound and a strobe output under alarm condition. Total load for PS-8-LP NAC circuits must not exceed the power supplies rated output.
