Summary: The new EmerCom digital phone provides excellent voice quality and ease of operation with a miniature circuit board footprint and the ability to program many more features making it significantly more flexible than the older analog models.
Ease of Operation: The new touch keypad has more feature keys and indicator LED's including a line-test feature and voice responses in multiple languages which also make the remote programming feature very user-friendly for setup and use.
Description of Operation
In the event of an entrapment or other emergency, an elevator occupant may press the “phone” button causing the EMC-60 to automatically call the primary phone number. The LED will illuminate immediately and begin flashing as soon as two-way voice communication with an authorized person is established.
If the call is not acknowledged within a reasonable time, the phone will automatically hang up and dial the second phone number, then the third number and if the phone line is busy the phone will not only notify the caller in the cab that the system is in use and redial automatically every 30 seconds but also notify the call in progress that there is another call waiting and request that they please finish their call as soon as possible.
The EMC-60 will automatically answer incoming calls, even if connected in parallel with other ECphones, prompting the caller to select the phone required.Diagnostics: The phone continuously monitors its own operation and its environment, including phone line and external power. If the contacts are available the phone can monitor whether the elevator door has opened since the phone button was last pressed, informing the emergency response phone operator that there is no longer an entrapment and assistance is probably no longer required. If a fault is detected, the phone can call a programmed number to report the fault and/or announce over its built-in speaker that service is required.
A phone line test feature enables on-site personnel who have access to the phone keypad to go off hook, listen for dial tone, call any number and engage the speaker and microphone for volume adjustment, converting the EC emergency phone into a regular speakerphone. The phone can be programmed remotely to the extent of initiating a test simulation of an “emergency” call.The Phone Line Monitoring (PLM) feature monitors the phone line as required by ASME A17.1/CSA B44 Code. A pair of contacts is built-in, which will open on alarm (fail-safe) and a PLM test feature is built-in to briefly simulate an alarm. The phone can automatically call a programmed phone number to verify phone operation on a regular basis and has 6 status LEDs which provide the essential information at a glance.
Other Features Built-in
A wide range of power supply voltages is available and an auxiliary connection enables a voice/tone annunciator to use the phone speaker.
Code requires the phone to be able to call into two separate locations and a third phone number can be programmed if required.
The prompts are available in multiple languages (French/English/Spanish) and when making an emergency call the phone can automatically “handshake” using SoundNet.
