The Federal Signal Informer is a commercial grade Tone Alert Receiver (TAR) designed for use in situations that require an emergency alert. The Informer incorporates a large 4” speaker that creates a very loud output for both live voice and audio alerts. The device can be wall mounted or placed on a desktop and comes with a small detached antenna that can be connected to the back of the Informer for optimum signal reception. This rear connection can also be used to connect an alternative antenna that may be situated in a remote location. VHF, UHF, or Low Band frequency models are available and the Informer operates with narrowband channel spacing.
The Veetronix Tone Alert Receiver is a device for receiving encoded emergency messages and then alerting public safety personnel of the emergency. The receiver has an internal speaker for message output, but other devices like external speaker systems, sirens, and alarms can also be connected. Although the Veetronix is primarily a desktop receiver, it does come with its own mounting hardware for mobile applications. The user can monitor all network traffic or only the messages intended for the receiver through a front-panel Monitor/Tone switch. If programmed tones are received, the receiver will alert in either Monitor or Tone switch position.
