SF380A Single Bed Visual Only Patient Station

The Alpha Communications® / TekTone SF380A visual only patient station uses micro-controller technology. The SF380A is used primarily with the NC300/NC300II series nurse-call systems and it controls two (2) dome indicators (Red and White), senses button presses and switch closures, and provides ROUTINE, BATH EMERGENCY and CODE CALLS.

The SF380A provides ROUTINE call input via a jack for the insertion of a model SF301/8 (single), SF302 (double) (or equivalent), and can signal a medium priority CORD OUT call. When used with an Emergency Station, the SF380A provides a medium priority BATH EMERGENCY call. When used with an Code Station, the SF380A provides a high priority CODE call. The station addressing is accomplished using a seven (7)-position dip switch. Six (6) switches set the station address and the seventh switch determines whether lamps are supervised. The station includes a lighted 'CALL-PLACED' indicator when a call is placed and a 'CANCEL' button, mounted on a rugged ABS white plastic faceplate. The SF380A is a drop-in replacement for the SF380C, with dipswitch-selectable lamp supervision.
