E-144NC Emergency Call Pull Switch (Momentary)

The Alpha Communications┬« / Cornell E-144NC Emergency Pull station is used to initiate a system 'Emergency' signal. It may be used independently or connected with other call stations and/or intercom stations. The E-144NC has a spring loaded Normally-Closed switch that opens in a 'Momentary' fashion, only as long as the pull cord is pulled.

Placing a call is accomplished by pulling on the pull cord. This type of 'Momentary' is usually canceled except at the master annunciator station(s). The E-144NC station features a rugged stainless steel faceplate, with the word 'EMERGENCY' permanently silk-screened onto the faceplate.
