Architects' And Engineers' Specifications

The Locator(s) shall be Alpha Communications® / TekTone NC512 or approved equal. The Locator shall determine the general area from which an alarm transmission is sent and shall transmit that information to the NC510 Receiver and NC511 Repeater(s). The NC512 Locator shall not re-transmit signals received from the NC511 Repeater(s) or other NC512 Locators, to ensure that the NC510 is sent accurate location information. Alarm signals from multiple locations from transmitters shall maintain reliably with multiple locators in the system. The Locator shall provide at least 200 milliwatts of effective radiated RF power. The locator shall not require a home-run wire back to the receiver or a repeater. 

TekTone® has designed the Tek-CARE®500 (TC500) to work as a system. Its NC501 Master Station Computer has been carefully designed and matched to work with Tek-CARE®500 wireless and wired peripherals.
