OR502/1NYH Vandal-Resistant Entry Intercom Station
The Alpha Communications® OR502/1NYH (V.I.P.™ series) entry intercom stations are designed specifically to minimize vandalism and abuse. Made from 16 gauge high-carbon brush finish stainless steel, with solid metal push-button, these stations are built to last. A high sensitivity 2.75" (70mm) mylar plastic cone speaker assures crisp, clear voice communication, and resists mold and mildew caused by dampness on paper cone speakers.

The OR502/1NYH is designed specifically to meet the needs of New York City Housing Authority projects, and mounts onto the IH101 (flush) or IH700G (surface) back box.

Pigtail wiring makes these stations easy to wire and resists water corrosion found on P.C. board type stations. The speaker is protected from damage by a fine mesh grille and sub-plate with offset speaker holes. When used with the SM201B (or similar) indoor master station, a model EC105 non-polarized capacitor must be installed into the OR502/1NYH remote station. Stations are also available in custom sizes and wiring configurations.
