AM193 Series DUPLEX Apt. Intercom Entrance Panel
The Alpha Communications® / TekTone AM193 series entrance panel is a modular series for use with the TA205B or TA205C duplex type apartment intercom handset stations (and PK205 apartment amplifier).

AM193 panels are equipped with a voice-frequency response speaker and dynamic microphone and can accommodate up to 16 plastic push buttons per panel. For more than 16 suites the AM193 is used in conjunction with the AM190 series push button panel modules (without a speaker).

Pressing the button corresponding to the desired name and suite number causes a signal at the apartment handset station. The resident may then converse with the caller. Controlled entry is permitted by push button of the electric door release, if desired. AM193 panels with 2 to 8 buttons are available with built-in postal release option (add suffix 'P' to the model number).
