That's no Federal, but it could be a HOR, Hedberg of some sort, or a B&M.
There's literally a Federal logo on the top.

It's one of the blast proof Federal indoor warning sirens. Basically it is a Model A or D with a different cover on it. The US Navy in particular liked them for use in ships. I saw one of these in the USS Alabama many years ago when I went there. Almost wonder why it would be in a mansion. Fire alarm perhaps? anyways, nice save!

Could it possibly be a model 66?

Nope. The ports are way too small to be a 66. They are much bigger, sharing them with the Model 28. The 66 would also (most likely) have a chrome bullet-shaped cover on the back as well. I believe the AX uses the same rotor as the Model A

This looks to be quite similar to a Federal Signal Model AX, simply an omnidirectional explosion proof version of a Model A. It might be a much earlier version of the siren judging by the logo, but the chopper assembly matches up with the modern AX almost identically. The motor end is the only thing that looks a bit different.
