Pfannenberg PATROL Flashing Sounder Used for Boat Warning Alarms

Safety is essential. Warning alarms save lives and prevent injury, this is why Pfannenberg Signaling Solutions are used throughout many different industries for numerous applications.


The marine industry is no exception as visual and audible signaling devices are required for boat warnings. The State of Alaska Department of Fish and Game contacted Pfannenberg to install a flashing sounder to replace the warning alarm on one of their boats.

Different options were discussed like a GL-rated version with the ability to use one or different tones to signify different events: bilge pump failure, fire, engine failure, etc. The customer finally decided to use our PATROL PA X 20-15 with a single tone. The advantages of this product are great:

  • 120 dB sounder
  • Up to 80 tones, 4 tone stages
  • High strength plastic housing adapted to marine environment (protection from splashing water)
  • Choice of 10 or 15 Joules strobe light
  • Choice of colors
  • New 10-year warranty!

Once installed the customer commented “Everything is working great with both strobe lights and audible alarm. Great product!”

The high quality of Pfannenberg’s Signaling products is internationnaly recognized and has once again been rewarded by winning the prestigious Red Dot Award.
