9686 Multi-Purpose Remote Control Unit
The Alpha Communications® #9686 is a multi-purpose relay control unit designed to provide remote control functions in a 9200 and/or 9600 series intercom system. It can be wired in series with a remote substation. When the substation is called from a master, a relay pulls to provide SPDT contacts. Contacts hold as long a station is connected. The #9686 has a second relay with SPDT contacts that only works when then first relay pulls. The second relay can be activated by another push button on the master to control functions after conversation is established or the unit is selected. The #9686 will operate on all 9200 and/or 9600 series intercom systems to control such things as doors and cameras.
