NC510 Receiver

The Alpha Communications® / TekTone NC510 Receiver enables communication between transmitters and the NC501 Master Station Computer in a TekCARE®500 Wireless Emergency Call System. The NC510 facilitates the supervision of all transmitters. The NC510's Frequency Agile® 900 MHz spread-spectrum radio provides reliability, even in hostile or difficult radio environments. Dual antennas, combined with Frequency Agile® technology, minimizes nulls or dead spots. The NC510 Receiver includes a slot through the bottom of the case for wiring, and has a metal case with side-set screws for easy access to the reset button and programming cable header. Transmitters are programmed using default information stored in the receiver.
