Carson SA-385 Police Siren
Rugged, no-nonsense model replaces the SA-380 Alert, but will continue its industry-leading legacy with a new look and improved features and functionality.
The SA-385 Alert Siren incorporates the same full-featured siren options as the original SA-380, with added features designed to enhance operation and increase ease of installation. These features include making Instant-On operation a standard requiring no enable input; terminal block wiring which offers simple, plug-in connection; and significant reduction of the internal electronics footprint giving the SA-385 a much smaller chassis size.
Why pay premiums for features that many in the field don't use? That is why we have engineered the new SA-385 Alert to only offer the most highly desired features and functionality. In our research we discovered there were certain features being "under utilized" by many in the industry. The Alert
represents the culmination of our research done with end-users on the features that are most highly desired while eliminating the price inflating under utilized features. The result is a console mount siren that offers end-users just what they need.
This new, stylish, economical 100-watt SA-385 Alert siren with P.A. features easy to use controls such as a four position rotary switch with intuitive selection of siren tones and a push button override for Manual and Air Horn. The P.A. system includes a noise-canceling microphone and face mounted volume control knob. The output diagnostic status is indicated on the face and the unit is LED backlit. The siren is also equipped with the Horn Ring Cycler 2 (HRC2) for safe hands-free control of the siren during extreme driving, DIP switch selections for quick and easy customization during installation, and an exposed
in-line fuse for protection.
The SA-385 Alert Is Just What You Need
A couple of the major changes that provided some of the greatest cost saving included setting the siren output capabilities to 100-watts and eliminating the Radio feature. For those currently installing only one 100-watt speaker with their siren, this change has no effect on the sound level produced. The Radio feature was removed as a result of more and more emergency response personnel are equipped with personal radios and the need for broadcasting radio communications over the siren speaker has diminished.
