*** NOTICE ***
The Alpha-Page-232 digital pager interface system is an extremely reliable system for
sending alarm messages to pocket pagers. The system sends messages to your pager(s)
using a relatively high power radio signal. This signal has considerable range and has
the ability to reject radio "noise" which could corrupt the message being sent.
Although Alpha-Page-232 is extremely reliable in communicating messages, it must
be used only as supplemental alarm annunciation in life safety applications such as
fire and nurse call annunciation. Alpha-Page-232 should only be used to enhance the
efficiency of life safety systems by providing additional, immediate alarm notification
via wireless paging. Micro Logic Systems shall not be held liable for incidental or
consequential damages resulting from annunciation failure.
Alpha-Page-232 is a pager interface system designed to receive messages in RS-232/TAP form from
nurse call, fire alarm, access control, security, and other systems. Alpha-Page-232 allows a 1000 pager
capacity database linking PIN's (Personal Identification Number) numbers to pager numbers, see
PROGRAMMING. Pre-programmed alphanumeric messages and numeric pages may be sent using DTMF
tones from any telephone within the facility or from a remote telephone.
Mount the MLS-EC2 enclosure near the host equipment that will be the data source for Alpha-page-
232. Note the length of the RS-232 cable supplied to connect Alpha-Page-232 to the host equipment.
Note that the paging data will come out of the COM1 serial port of the MLS-SPU3 processor board.
The data will go through two MLS-485 units, undergoing a protocol conversion, then will be feed into the
TX125-ENC paging transmitter. The MLS-485 devices function as short-haul modems. This means that the
