Alpha Pageā„¢ 232 Pocket Pager System

The Alpha Page™ 232 pocket page system, from Alpha Communications®, is a microprocessor based pocket paging interface system designed to receive messages from nurse call systems, fire alarm systems, access control systems, security systems, industrial equipment and other systems via RS-232 data. Data in the following formats may be used: raw ASCII, ANY serial printer output, TAP/PET, COMP1, COMP2. The received data is formatted and immediately sent to one or more pocket pagers. Custom formatting is available and custom messages can be easily changed by the user at any time.

With Alpha Page™ 232, there are no monthly service charges for paging, since the transmitter and pagers are customer owned. The transmitter will send messages up to one mile away (line of sight) and are sent within 5-10 seconds from the time the call/alarm occurs. The system contains a built-in 12 VDC, 1 Amp power supply. The entire system (including transmitter) may operate with battery backup by simply adding the optional 12V, 7 Amp hour rechargeable battery. The system contains a built in battery charger.
