Architects' And Engineers' Specifications
The code call push/pull stations shall be Alpha Communications® / TekTone SF156B, or approved equal.

The SF156B shall be used in conjunction with a PK153 third priority control unit, to provide a separate and distinct flash and tone rate. The SF156B is not a 'supervised' code call station.

Unit shall be U.L. Listed 1069, to the latest standards. Contractor shall observe all local and national electrical and building codes.

SF156B Code Call Pull/Push Station
The SF156B Code Call Station is used to operate all system code signals (except 'supervised' code blue applications). It may be used independently or connected with other call stations or intercom stations. All electronic components are mounted on a circuit board. The SF156B features a built-in Red (flashing) LED. The SF156B is used primarily with the NC110A, NC110N, NC150N, NC150R, NC200N and RS800 series nurse/emergency-call systems. The SF156B is U.L. 1069 listed, to the latest standards. 

Due to the flexibility of its design, it may be used as a PULL CORD CODE STATION, or a PUSH TYPE CODE CALL STATION. The optional (model CA015K or CA016K) pull cord may be used for emergency pull activation, or if so desired, the standard LARGE BLUE push/pull down lever may be used.
