The Honeywell WAVE2EX is an indoor alarm siren with a piezo sounder. What makes the WAVE2EX unique, is that it only draws 60mA when set to the low output and 110mA when set to the high output. This is an important feature as some Honeywell alarm control panels don’t have enough sounder output to power sirens that draw a lot of current. Honeywell specifically recommends the WAVE2EX siren in the L3000 LYNX Plus wireless alarm control panel installation guide. The L3000 bell output maxes out at 6-14VDC, 120mA. Therefore, many of the Honeywell alarm sirens will not work with the LYNX Plus wireless alarm control panel. However, the WAVE2EX is a perfect option as it doesn’t draw more than 110mA.
Just like other Honeywell WAVE Series alarm sirens, the WAVE2EX has a plastic enclosure with a hinged case design. This makes installation of the WAVE2EX as easy as possible. Simply snap open the case and let the front case swing down. Mount the back case to the wall and make all necessary wire connections before swinging the front case back up into place and snapping the WAVE2EX shut. The plastic enclosure allows you to mount the WAVE2EX flat on a wall, in a corner or even to the ceiling. The terminal block inside the alarm siren makes wiring connections easy as well. The case back is even channeled so that you can easily route your wiring without getting in the way of your alarm siren installation.
To select the current output of your WAVE2EX indoor alarm siren, you simply move the jumper. Covering the (2) left pins with the jumper will set the siren to the high output and covering the right (2) pins with the jumper will set the siren to the low output. There is a printed diagram above the jumper to guide you. When you select the high output the current draw is 12VDC, 110mA and the sound pressure output is 106db at a distance of 1 meter. The low output draws 12VDC, 60mA current and produces a sound pressure output of 100db at a distance of 1 meter. You should set the jumper before making your wiring connections. Once the jumper is set, wire the ‘Term. #1’ terminal to the sounder (+) terminal on your alarm control panel and wire the ‘GND’ terminal to the sounder (-) or ground on your alarm control panel to complete the installation of your Honeywell WAVE2EX indoor alarm siren.
