IR260A (Enhanced) Duty Station
The IR260A Supervised Duty Station is for use with Alpha
Communication®'s NC205 Nurse Call System. The duty station has
solid state microcontroller technology and is supervised from the
central equipment. The IR260A provides reliable two way hands free
communication between the nurse master station and utility rooms,
examination rooms, kitchen, or any other location where a nurse may
perform a function out of hearing or sight range of the nurse call master
The IR260A provides signaling to the appropriate dome lamp(s) using
specific flash rate on the dome light to indicate priority levels.
Calls are placed from the duty station to the master station by use of a
momentary push button. Calls answered at the master station cause the
red in-use indicator on the duty station to light; and the nurse may then
carry on a conversation from the remote location.
A call originating from a patient station is indicated both audibly and
visually at the duty station which it is assigned. Normal calls are
indicated by a steady illumination of the yellow "CALL-PLACED"
indicator and a slow repeating tone. Emergency/bath calls/cord out
cause a slow flashing of the red "EMERGENCY" indicator and a slow
repeating tone. Fire calls are annunciated the same as emergency calls,
but at twice the pulse rate. Code calls cause alternate flashing of the
yellow "CALL-PLACED" and red "EMERGENCY" indicators, and a
rapid repeating tone. Dome light indication is also provided.
