SF381 Addressable Emergency Pull/Push Station

The Alpha Communications® / TekTone SF381 may be used in any area where activation of an emergency station is required, without the need to install another device (such as a multipurpose station or other addressable device). The SF381 is designed to be connected directly to the station buss wiring of either the NC300 or the NC300II system. The SF381 includes dome lamp output, and are addressed using dip switches mounted on the rear of the SF381.

Due to the flexibility of its design , the SF381 may be used as a PULL CORD EMERGENCY STATION, a NON-PULL CORD EMERGENCY STATION, or a STAFF ASSIST EMERGENCY CALL STATION. The pull cord supplied may be used for emergency call activation or, if so desired, the LARGE 1.5" Red pull down lever may be used for 'push' activation.

The SF381 is typically used with the NC300 and/or NC300II systems. The SF381 is not designed for use in a shower or 'moist' environment. The SF381 is designed to be a stand-alone push/pull cord unit and does not have outputs for additional (non addressable) push/pull stations.
