IR157N Single Patient Station

The Alpha Communications® / TekTone IR157N Patient Station provides for efficient use of the nursing staff by permitting fast and reliable communication between nurse and patient. Calling the nurse is accomplished by pressing the area of the pillow speaker designated by the " " symbol or by pressing the call button on the end of the (optional) SF311 or SF312 call cord. Callplaced assurance and intercom operation is indicated by reliable solid-state L.E.D. indicators. A non-cancellable call is registered if the call cord is removed from the jack. A reset button is provided on the patient station.

When used with the SF301P pillow speaker, the IR157N also provides for television control directly from the station. To operate, push the area of the pillow speaker designated "TV". If television is off, it will come on. Each additional push will change the channel until the TV is turned off when the cycle is completed.
