NC200N Series Audio-Visual Nurse-Call System
The Alpha Communications® / TekTone NC200N series audio-visual nurse-call system is designed for health-care applications where voice communication and visual indication is required, with a maximum of one (1) master station per system.

When a remote station is activated, the NC200N annunciator will sound an electronic tone and will light, indicating the location of the call. The tone signal can be silenced at the master station (and/or at the optional LI150B remote duty station(s) for non-emergency calls). The individual switch/light will remain lighted until the remote station is reset at the point of origination, or when answered by voice from the master station (for remotes with voice capability only).

The NC200N master annunciator is modular, desk mounted, and is available in multiples of twenty (20) lights/switches. The NC200N features built-in tone signal, and tone silence button and light. 'TEST' buttons are used on each annunciator lamp module for lamp testing. A press-to-talk button enables the NC200N master to speak with any voice type remote station. Each NC200N master has a built-in amplifier with voice volume controls. An optional model TA200N handset module, can be installed onto any master station, for private voice communication, or for very noisy environments. Nurse Follow, Tone-Off, Tone Call and Group Call are push button selected.
