RS850 Remote Indication and Control Panel

The Alpha Communications® RS850 Remote Indication and Control Panel utilizes micro-controller technology to display the state of up to fifty (50) remote dome lights. Depressing a key on the RS850 will cause the associated dome light, on the specific remote station to change to its next assigned state. If the state of an assigned dome light is changed locally, the corresponding LED on the RS850 shall echo the change. When the dome light is set to a flashing mode the RS850 shall produce a routine priority call tone. The RS850 has a dipswitch for selecting the address of the device. There are six (6) unique addresses available for use. Therefore, you may have up to six (6) of the RS850 Remote Indicator and Control Panels connected to the RS800 Room Status System.
