EC01-11 Nurse Call Unit
The EC01-11 Nurse Call Unit is a HandHeld unit that can be located in close proximity to the resident.
Pressing the Call button on the Unit will activate a standard call. If the answering member of staff requires further help, the Assistance button may be activated and if the situation is, or becomes serious, the Emergency button may be used.
The Nurse Call Unit is powered by 4 x AA batteries which are continuously monitored for battery low status. With no wires this unit can be moved to alternative rooms depending on which room is being used at that time. When battery replacement is required, this is indicated on the panels.

Battery Low Status for Nurse Call Unit
Call Unit batteries, which have a life expectancy of approx. 9 months - 3 years depending on usage and type, are automatically monitored for 'battery low'. When this occurs, a signal is sent to the Main Panel. The Nurse Call Unit number appears on this display with no sounder.In a room with more than one transmitter, i.e. a bedroom with en-suite, the reassurance light on the Call Unit will be permanently illuminated, to give easy recognition of which unit requires a new battery.
Under 'low battery' conditions, a Nurse Call Unit will still function for up to 5 days. Replacing batteries is a simple procedure; the same as that for replacing batteries in a radio.
