Nurse Call System Components and Features

All components are available in a neutral Ivory color or with a long-life stainless steel finish.

ANNUNCIATORSThe 4400 series Annunciator

The 4400 series Annunciator indicates incoming calls from any initiation point in the system. Calls are identified by a solid (normal) or flashing (emergency) LED indicator light, and staff are alerted to a call by a pleasant tone. Emergency calls are easily distinguished from routine calls by the tone; from a slow, intermittent, rate to a more rapid rate.

The Annunciator is constructed of rugged, anodized aluminum with standard features such as: HI-LO tone volume control; lamp test; an easily changed room designation sheet; and from 8 to 48 room designators. The 4400 series Annunciator is available in a surface mount.


Visual Nurse Call Systems Bedside Stations

Bedside stations with call button activation are available in three standard designs. They will activate the normal call tone and associated lights. The B-111 has a single call cord jack, the B-122 has two call cord jacks, while the B- 113 has a push button on the plate. A call is placed by using the SW-110 call cord or removal of the cord in emergency situations, or (on the B-113) by pushing the “push for help” button.

All stations have: LED indicator lights; call cancel buttons, silk screened lettering; screw terminal, wire connectors; and stainless steel, single gang face plates. All stations are available with in a neutral Ivory color or with our long-life stainless steel finish.    


Typically, emergency stations are used in locations requiring immediate action. Each nurse call push button activates the emergency signal and causes all the associated indicator lights to flash.

The E-101, E-103, & E-104 represent the typical design. The most popular, E-104-1, now features an antimicrobial luminescent pull cord connected to a slide switch--easy to locate and germ-free. A call is placed by simply pulling the cord.

The E-103 features a push button with a mechanical drop flag indicator. A call is placed by pushing the button once and second to reset.

The E-101 has a red thumb-size push on/push off button. All stations have: silk screened lettering, stainless steel, single gang, face plates. Most models have screw terminal wiring connectors and LED indicator lights to ensure a long service life and easy installation.     


The D-112 duty station is used to indicate the call systems status. The D-112 is typically placed anywhere the staff needs to be alerted to a call. The duty station indicates a call by: a green (normal call) or a red (emergency call) LED indicator lamp and by sounding a slow or fast intermittent tone. A tone volume control is located behind the face plate to prevent unauthorized adjustment. The D-112 is mounted on a stainless steel, single gang, face plate with silk screened lettering and screw terminal, wiring connectors.


The S-112 staff station is used to indicate the status of the call system, like the D-112, and has an emergency pull cord, like the E-104. The staff station is employed in locations where staff congregates and may need to also request emergency assistance.

CALL CORDSProduct: SW-106(TH)

There are two standard call cord types used with bedside stations. The SW-106 and SW-110 have momentary contact push buttons in molded, plastic housings connected to white cables and a right angle phone plug. A call is placed by depressing the end of the cord.

The SW-206 and SW-210 have a vinyl bulb connected to air pressure tubing and a right angle phone plug. These are used in oxygen enriched environments or for geriatric use. A call is placed with as little as 1/4 oz. of pressure on the air bulb. All call cords resist contamination and will withstand thorough cleaning. Both types come in 6 or 10 foot lengths and have bed clips attached.


The NC-102D provides both steady and flashing audible and visual notification. The audible tones are sounded at all duty stations and at the Annunciator panel wherever a call is placed. The NC-102D offers 3 levels of Priority:

  • First Level - Highest priority, rapid flashing indicator & one beep per 1/2 second.
  • Second Level - Medium priority, slow flashing indicator & one beep per second.
  • Third Level - Lowest priority, steady-on indicator & one beep every six seconds.


The power supply for the Series 4000 Visual Nurse Call is the CORNELL Model P-512243A, generating 3 amps continuous supply current at 24VDC. The dimensions are 13.5” H x 12.75” W x 3.25” D. Slotted keyholes make it suitable for vertical wall or rack mounting.


Corridor and zone lights are used to indicate the location of a call in a room, zone or area. The L-101A and Z-103 nurse call lights are available in many standard configurations. The choices are 1 to 3 lamps per dome cover, on 1-4 gang backplates. The L-101A dome covers come in red or white translucent plastic and are attached to the backplate by slide-in steel pegs, making light bulb changes simple. Dome covers may be silkscreened with any custom text. Colored light bulb covers may be used, inside the dome, to enhance the differentiation of the call.


VersaPage is the complete solution for direct messaging to your staff when emergencies arise. Prior to VersaPage, multiple systems and multiple pocket pagers were necessary, since most monitored devices operate with a unique electronic signal. Current paging systems normally monitor one or two electronic signals. Multiple voltages, relays and normal open or closed contact devices are only a few of the signals VersaPage medical pagers can handle. Serial data can also be accepted by VersaPage from any manufacturer’s system. In addition, we have several options to enhance communications within the facility. Our large digital display communicates calls to the entire staff, and our user-friendly paging station lets you customize your own messages. 

It's also worth considering mobile handsets via the new iNFORM system software, which is enhanced call management and staff monitoring as well as voice and text communication between staff members. We will be happy to provide you more detail on integrating iNFORM software into a system.


The Series 4000 can automatically generate a permanent record and stores all monitoring and alerting activity in a historical reporting system to aid with accountability, staff management and recordkeeping.
