WSM501 Wireless Support Module

The Alpha Communications® WSM501 Wireless Support Module is for use with the AlphaEcall™ 200 (AEC200) Series Wireless Emergency Call System. When the WSM501 is connected to the WPS501 Bed Station or the WSS510 Staff Station, the WSM501 operates as a wireless device in the AlphaEcall™ 200 (AEC200) system. When properly installed, the WSM501 / WPS501 assembly is typically located adjacent to a patient's bed (stainless steel and other metal fixtures may interfere with signal transmission).

The WSM501 is based on EchoStream® spread spectrum technology and transmits signals at the 900 MHz frequency. It includes a universal transmitter and a pre-assembled 6-pin wiring harness for connection to the WPS501 Bed Station or WSS510 Staff Station, as well as two (2) pigtail wires to connect to the model# RY024AM relay module. The WSM501 requires no other wiring connections and is powered by a user-replaceable 3V lithium battery.

For surface mount applications, the WSM501 and WPS501 (or WSS510) assembly can be mounted inside the optional model IHS527 surface plastic housing.
