NFPA 99 2015 Edition (188.8.131.52.3.4) and the NEC 2011 Edition (517.160(B)(1)) both require a Remote Annunciator to be “plainly” or "conspicuously” visible inside the area served when a Line Isolation Monitor (LIM) is installed outside the patient/procedure area.
The Remote Annunciator displays the Line Isolation Monitor (LIM) status and notifies if a fault has occurred. The standard Remote Annunciator (DRA-1) includes illumination of status and alarm only. Full display and duplicate LIM functionality are also available (DRA-VS).
In locations such as the ICU where attending personnel may not be immediately present, it is recommended to install a Remote Annunciator at a designated nearby nurses station.
|Model DRA-VS Remote Annunciator|
|The PG LifeLink Model DRA-VS Remote Annunciator contains all the same indication and functionality as found on the front of the Mark V LIM. These features include basic alarm indication as well as real-time THC, silence feature and system status display. The DRA-VS provides remote access to system logs, configuration settings and error codes. (Model DRA-VS Remote Annunciator is only compatible with Mark V LIM.)|
|Model DRA-1V Remote Annunciator|
|The PG LifeLink Model DRA-1V Remote Annunciator contains similar indication and functionality as found on the front of the Mark V LIM. Features include alarm indication as well as real-time THC display, silence and self-test functions.
The DRA-1V is an excellent option for upgrading older, analog Square D Isolated Power Panels. Often the LIM is hidden on these older models and the user must rely on an analog meter at the top right-hand corner of the panel. With the DRA-1V, the LIM can be replaced with a digital Mark V LIM and the analog remote can be replaced with the digital DRA-1V Remote Annunciator bringing the entire system up to date.
|Model DRA-1 Remote Annunciator|
|The Model DRA-1 Remote Annunciator contains basic audible and visual alarm indication along with a silence feature. (Model DRA-1 Remote Annunciator is compatible with the Mark V LIM and the Mark IV LIM.)|
|Model DMRA Master Remote Annunciator|
|The Model DMRA Master Remote Annunciator panel combines multiple remote units offering the ability to monitor multiple Isolated Power Panels from a central location such as a nurses station or facilities maintenance office.
Standard DMRA panels can be built to any combination required. Configurations incorporating the DRA-1, DRA-1S or DRA-VS Remotes are available.
