AM493 Series Tek-Guard™
Intercom Entrance Panel
The Alpha Communications® AM493 series Tek-Guard™ Van-
dal-Resistant entrance panel is a modular series, typically used with
our TA205B or TA205C series duplex type, handset suite stations
and PK205 system amplifier.
Panels are equipped with a mylar, voice-frequency response
speaker and dynamic microphone protected by louvered speaker
grilles. The speaker panel can accommodate up to 16 push buttons.
The aluminum push button actuators may be engraved with up to
four letter/digit combinations (at extra cost). For more than 16
suites the AM493 is used in conjunction with the AM490 series
push button panel modules (without a speaker/microphone).
Pressing the button corresponding to the desired name and suite
number causes a signal at the apartment station. The resident may
then converse with the caller. Controlled entry is permitted by
push button operation of the electric door release. AM493 panels
with 0 - 8 buttons are available with postal option (add suffix 'P'
to the model number).
