The Gentex Commander² GE Series features low-profile
strobes, horns or horn/strobe combinations that offer de-
pendable audible and audible/visual alarms and the low-
est current available.

Commander² GE Series horns allow selection of high or
low dBA, of synchronizable chime or whoop tones, as well
as selection of a 2400 Hz (remote signaling) or a low-fre-
quency broadband 1500-3000 Hz mechanical sounding
(evacuation) tone where doors must be considered.

Commander² GE Series models are easily field-change-
able from temporal 3 to continuous tone by simply remov-
ing a jumper. GEC models are shipped from the factory on
the temporal lower-frequency mode and come standard with
a rugged cast-metal mounting plate.

The Commander² GE Series appliances have a minimal
operation current and a minimum flash rate of 1 Hz regard-

appliances are warranted for three years
