IR251 Single and IR252 Dual Patient Stations

Model IR251

The IR251 single and IR252 dual patient stations are designed for use with the NC205 Nurse Call System. They provide reliable two way, hands free communication between patient and nurse. 

The stations provide inputs for the connection of smoke detectors and bath stations. These devices, when activated, will provide the appropriate signalling to the two bulb light (LI382) that is also connected to the IR251/IR252.

Calling the nurse is accomplished by pressing the call button on the end of the call cord. Solid-state lights on the panel indicate the call has been placed and the intercom is in use.

If the cord is accidentally removed from its receptacle, the nurse master station will annunciate an emergency level call. The call may be rest only by returning the call cord to its receptacle.
