The Precision Digital Vigilante II annunciators are compact, panel-space saving, four, and eight-channel annunciators loaded with features found previously in annunciators three or four times their size. Despite all the traditional annunciator features included in the Vigilantes, they are still very low-cost, easy-to-use alarm annunciators perfect for replacing stand-alone lights!
The Vigilantes are housed in shallow depth, 1/8 DIN enclosures for easy and convenient mounting. The Vigilante II can be programmed for all the common ISA alarm sequences, accept switch, transistor, and logic level inputs, and be supplied.
The Vigilantes’ industrial-grade design, NEMA 4X front, wide operating temperature range, and sunlight-readable alarm indicators make them well suited for outdoor alarm applications. Front panel buttons and screw terminal connectors located at the instrument’s rear are provided for Silence, Acknowledge, and Reset functions. A built-in horn provides an audible indication of an alarm condition, and up to two relays can be used to control external devices such as beacons, horns, or buzzers.

Open collector transistor: Open circuit voltage approx. 3.3 VDC.
Logic Levels: LOW = 0 to 0.9 VDC, HIGH = 2.4 to 28 VDC
Update Rate: 41 ms following alarm state; 1 ms for alarm state clear.
Sequences: Input follower, ISA Sequences A, F1A, F2A, F3A, M, F1M, and F3M per ISA Standard ISA-18.1-1979 R2004.
Sequence Options: A, F1A, F2A, F3A, M, F1M, F2M, and input follower with selectable options -1 (silence pushbutton), -4 (no lock-in), and -6 (no horn) per ISA Standard ISA-18.1-1979 R2004
Rating: 2 SPDT (Form C); rated 3 A @ 30 VDC or 3A @ 250 VAC resistive load; 1/14 HP @ 125/250 VAC for inductive loads.
Electrical Noise Suppression: A suppressor (snubber) should be connected to each relay contact switching inductive loads to prevent disruption to the microprocessor’s operation. Recommended suppressor value: 0.01 µF/470 Ω, 250 VAC (PDX6901).
Relay Operation: Relay 1: Alarm state until the alarm is acknowledged. Relay 2: Alarm state if any channel indicating an alarm condition.
Fail-Safe Operation: Programmable independent for each relay.
Note: In fail-safe mode, the relay coil is energized in non-alarm condition. In case of power failure, the relay will go to the alarm state.
