8 Line Master EVC control unit c/w line cards, handset and display. Wall-mounting, needs 2 x 12V 7.0A/H batteries
The ECU-8 is an 8 line Master controller designed for use in the fire telephone systems and the disabled refuge systems of Context Plus. The ECU-8 Master controller allows an operator to communicate with up to eight fire telephone or disabled refuge outstations. It offers dual communication over 8 lines. It is a simple, effective two-way communication over 8 lines. It can be networked with other 16 line, 8 line and 4 line Master controllers to create a fire telephone system or a disabled refuge system with up to 224 dual communication lines.
• Ideal for disabled refuge and fire telephone applications.
• Allows operators to communicate with up to eight disabled refuge or fire telephone outstations.
• Recently upgraded to include a semi-recessed, less obtrusive handset.
• Improved networking capability allow systems of up to 224 lines to be created with optional/additional desk unit control.
• Backlit LCD and unique ‘auto-learn’ facility allows fast system set up.
• Can be semi-flush mounted using an EVC385 bezel.
• Operation can be maintained for 24 hours (standby) and 3 hours (in use) using 2 x 12V 7 Ahr batteries.
• Easily interfaced to NC951 accessible toilet alarms, PDA range hearing loop systems, strobes, CCTV activation relays, etc
