IR254 (Enhanced) Staff Station
The IR254 Supervised (Enhanced) Staff Station is for use with Alpha Communication® / TekTone's NC205 Nurse Call System. The station has solid-state micro-controller technology and is supervised from the central equipment. It provides reliable two way hands, free communication between the nurse master station and utility rooms, examination rooms, kitchen, or any other location where staff members need to originate calls. Solid-state indicators on the panel indicate that a call has been placed and that the intercom is in use. The IR254 may also be used as a patient station in areas where patient call cord or pillow speakers are not necessary.

The IR254 provides circuitry to supervise code call peripherals and wiring. The station also provides inputs for the connection of smoke detectors and bath stations. These devices, when activated, will provide the appropriate signaling to the (LI387) four bulb dome lights that are also connected to the IR254.
