Loud External Alarm for XB-8000
The WatchMate XB-8000 smartAIS has the ability trigger an external alarm which can be mounted anywhere on board. If the XB-8000 detects a risk situation due to a potential collision, anchor drag or a MOB activation, it alerts you with an alarm on your mobile device. It simultaneously sounds the external alarm which operates even if your mobile device is turned off.
The alarm is designed to be easily mounted and can be connected directly to the XB-8000 without the need for external relays or other components. By simply rotating the sound output vane you can control the volume level.
It is easily configured to make a steady continuous or pulsing tone like a truck back up alarm. It is heavy duty and very robust. Its terminals are via screw down or you can use 6.35mm (1/4") quick disconnects.
This alarm can be used with both 12 and 24 VDC systems. It also has reverse polarity protection to prevent damage due to incorrect wiring.
