RS850 Remote Indication
and Control Panel
The Alpha Communications® RS850 Remote Indica-
tion and Control Panel utilizes micro-controller tech-
nology to display the state of up to fifty (50) remote
dome lights. Depressing a key on the RS850 will cause
the associated dome light, on the specific remote
station to change to its next assigned state. If the state
of an assigned dome light is changed locally, the
corresponding LED on the RS850 shall echo the
change. When the dome light is set to a flashing mode
the RS850 shall produce a routine priority call tone.
The RS850 has a dipswitch for selecting the address
of the device. There are six (6) unique addresses
available for use. Therefore, you may have up to six (6)
of the RS850 Remote Indicator and Control Panels
connected to the RS800 Room Status System.
