Improved productivity at the Port of Felixstowe

17 October 2008

The E2S Hootronic has been successfully trialled at the Port of Felixstowe, where the cranes cannot operate without a functioning warning device. The port's cranes currently use traditional electro-mechanical hooters, which have several moving parts and are prone to mechanical failure. In the trial, hooters have been replaced by the electronic Hootronic, which overcomes this problem by having no moving parts, eliminating downtime and increasing productivity.

The Port of Felixstowe is now enjoying the benefits of replacing failed traditional electro-mechanical hooters with the new Hootronic.

For over 100 years the reliability, performance, maintenance and running costs have always been a concern for applications that require the traditional signalling sounds of hooters, buzzers, bells and sirens. Now using the latest in SMD class D amplifier technology and digital to analogue conversion, the E2S Hootronic can faithfully replicate all of these sounds in one product with the reliability and performance of a modern electronic sounder.

Hootronic has no moving parts and is maintenance free. It is continuously rated, has low inrush current and has a very high output up to 124dB(A) at 1 metre. It has a large termination area with multiple cable entries if required, generates no back EMF and can be configured with a choice of five first stage warning sounds, each with two additional remotely selectable alarm stages.

The unit is available in two formats and can be combined with Xenon, LED or filament bulb beacons for complete audio-visual signalling.
