Universal Power Group Releases New Piezo Sirens

The new sirens are said to use a fraction of the amperage of older sirens.

Universal Power Group (UPG) announces the unveiling of two new piezo sirens which the company says will replace the standard 15-Watt and 30-Watt 12VDC sirens.

The new sirens are said to use between a third and a quarter of the amperage of the older sirens. According to the company, the high current (amperage) used by the old magnetic sirens cause a material drop in the voltage in power cables, which reduce sound output levels.

The piezo sirens can be powered with smaller diameter cables without losing any sound output, according to the company.

UPG’s new piezo sirens also weigh less than the older sirens since they do not have the heavy magnet require to drive the sound coil, the company says.
