The PC-Alarm Panel shall be Alpha Communications® model NC502, or approved equal. The NC502 shall receive alarm messages from the Tek-CARE®500 (TC500) Master Station Computer via an RS-232 connection and shall then transmit the alarm messages over a POTS line to a Central Monitoring facility, using the Ademco ContactID protocol.
The NC502 PC-Alarm Panel shall be capable of generating all DTMF signals necessary for message transmission, as well as decoding handshake and kiss-off tones received from the Central Monitoring Station. The NC502 shall report transmission status to the NC501ES Master Station Computer over the RS-232 connection referenced above.
The Alpha Communications® NC502 provides an interface between the Tek-CARE®500 (TC500) Wireless Emergency Call System's NC501ES Master Station Computer and a POTS line for the purpose of sending alarm messages to a Central Station monitoring facility. This provides for an alternate annunciation path, in addition to the normal TekCARE®500 screen. The NC502 PC-Alarm Panel is external to the NC501ES Master Station Computer and has its own 12VDC power adapter (supplied). Connection to the NC501ES Master Station Computer is accomplished via a standard straight serial cable and a USB to serial adapter (supplied). A standard 6-position/2-wire telephone cable (supplied) is used to connect the unit to the telephone wall jack.
