Hootronic: the electronic alternative to electro-mechanical signalling

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 claxons, buzzers, bells and sirens. Using the latest in SMD class D amplifier technology and digital to analogue conversion, the HOOTRONIC can faithfully replicate all these sounds with the added reliability and performance of an electronic sounder. 

The new HOOTRONIC has been successfully trialled at the Port of Felixstowe. The port’s cranes previously used traditional electro-mechanical claxons, which has several moving parts that are prone to mechanical failure, a major potential problem as cranes cannot operate without a functioning warning device. The HOOTRONIC overcomes this problem by having no moving parts, eliminating downtime and thus increasing productivity. The Port is now replacing failed traditional electro-mechanical claxons with the new HOOTRONIC.
