800 Series Call System
HOW DOES AN 800 SERIES CALL SYSTEM WORK?
Depending on the type of calling devices used, the
system can be set up to operate as a standard system – on
which standard (constant tone) calls are generated – or
an emergency system – on which standard (constant tone)
and emergency (intermittent tone) calls are generated.
On standard systems:
The user calls for assistance by activating a ceiling pull,
standard call point, monitoring point, water resistant
alert point or infrared ceiling receiver (as fitted). A red
confidence light on the calling device illuminates to
reassure the user that the call has been registered.
At the system’s indicator panel(s), an indicator light
illuminates and a buzzer sounds to inform staff that
someone is in need of assistance. Relevant overdoor
lights, remote sounders and area indicators also operate
(as fitted) to provide additional audible and visual
indication of the call.
A member of staff visits the calling room to assist the
user and resets the calling device to return the system to
normal.
On emergency systems:
In addition to doing everything a standard system does,
a more urgent / extra level of assistance can be
summoned by activating an ‘emergency call’ via an
emergency call point, water resistant alert point or
infrared ceiling receiver (as fitted).
Once activated, the red confidence light on the calling
device will flash to confirm the emergency call has been
registered and the relevant indicator panel light and its
buzzer will flash and sound a more insistent tone to
attract attention. Relevant overdoor lights, remote
sounders and area indicators will also pulse (as fitted) to
provide additional audible and visual indication of the
emergency call.
WHICH SYSTEM SHOULD YOU CHOOSE?
The type of system required will depend upon the
application and the needs of the user so always check with
the approving authority/client before work commences.
In residential care homes, a standard system is normally
acceptable as the main requirement is for the reset
function to be carried out at the source of the call. In
nursing homes, however, some authorities insist on
standard and emergency call facilities so an emergency
system may be required. In most other applications, such
as shops, leisure centres, hotels and public sector
buildings, the type of system and devices required will
depend almost entirely on what the user wants to
achieve. In most instances, referring to the typical
applications diagram overleaf will help all interested
parties come to a decision on what components should
be purchased.
PLANNING A SYSTEM
The following points should be considered when
designing or planning an 800 Series Call System.
Indicator panels
Indicator panels should be sited internally in a clean dry
area which is readily accessible to staff. Various types
and sizes are available covering 1 to 90 zones. Repeater
panels are also available.
Call Points
Any number of call points (of any kind), reset points and
overdoor lights can be wired onto one zone.
Standard call points (including ceiling pulls and
monitoring points) will work on 800 Series standard and
emergency systems but emergency call points will work
on emergency systems only.
Some emergency call points can generate standard and
emergency calls whereas others, such as water resistant
alert points and stainless steel call points, can be set up
to generate standard or emergency calls (not both).
Two methods of reset are available - button or magnetic
key. Reset buttons are fine for non-secure applications
but reset keys are usually preferred in care
establishments as they help prevent patients
inadvertently cancelling their own calls.
Call points without an on-board reset facility, such as
ceiling pulls, must be reset via a reset point or call point
with an on-board reset facility.
A full list of standard and emergency call points and the
facilities they offer can be found at the back of this leaflet.
Ancillary calling devices
A tail call lead or hand/foot operated pneumatic pad can
be connected to a call point’s remote socket (if fitted) to
generate a standard call. For safety reasons, a standard
call will also be made if the ancillary calling device is
inadvertently pulled from its socket.
Monitoring points
Monitoring points can be used to trigger a standard call if
a fire exit, drug cupboard or storeroom is opened and can
be isolated via an on-board keyswitch if required. They
can also be connected to any device with a normally open
or normally closed switch, such as a pressure mat, allowing
it to operate as a standard call point when activated.
Call latch modules
Call latch modules operate in a similar way to monitoring
points but are smaller (for discreet mounting) and do not
include an onboard reset or isolating facility.
Infrared call points, ceiling receivers and transmitters
To help protect staff against aggressive visitors, distressed
patients or intruders, infrared ceiling receivers and call
points can be used in conjunction with infrared
transmitters to remotely trigger standard and/or
emergency calls. Up to three slave ceiling receivers can
be connected to one master ceiling receiver or infrared
call point to provide additional coverage in large or L
shaped rooms. Infrared transmitters typically provide a
10m line-of-sight transmitting range.
Overdoor lights
Overdoor lights (if fitted) are normally installed outside
rooms to increase call indication levels. If required, up to
four zones can be connected to one overdoor light to
provide area indication (in corridors, etc) with additional
zones connectable via one or more input expanders.
Remote sounders
Up to three switchable or remote sounders can be
connected to an indicator panel’s sounder output to
increase call levels.
Relay units
External strobes, sounders, beacons, etc, can be connected
to any zone or group of zones via a 12V relay unit.
Tone only paging
A simple ‘tone-only’ paging option is available (requires
a DP874B/4 UHF paging transmitter). When a call is
made, tone only pagers will beep, prompting staff to
visit the nearest call indicator panel to determine the
exact source and nature of the call.
Master reset buttons
Some indicator panels have an optional master reset
button. If enabled, this facility allows standard calls to
be globally cancelled without the source of the call
being investigated. As there is a definite requirement
in most applications for the caller to be visited before
the call is reset, this facility is normally only utilised in
carefully managed staff-to-staff call systems. In
most other instances we recommend this facility is
disabled.
Mute buttons
All multi-zone emergency indicator panels are supplied
with an optional mute button. If enabled, this allows
any standard calls on the system to be silenced but
leaves relevant indicator light(s) lit. Although a new call
from a different call point will re-activate the sounders,
to ensure callers are visited we recommend this facility is
used only in very carefully managed systems. Emergency
calls cannot be muted.

HOW DOES AN 800 SERIES CALL SYSTEM WORK?
Depending on the type of calling devices used, the
system can be set up to operate as a standard system – on
which standard (constant tone) calls are generated – or
an emergency system – on which standard (constant tone)
and emergency (intermittent tone) calls are generated.
On standard systems:
The user calls for assistance by activating a ceiling pull,
standard call point, monitoring point, water resistant
alert point or infrared ceiling receiver (as fitted). A red
confidence light on the calling device illuminates to
reassure the user that the call has been registered.
At the system’s indicator panel(s), an indicator light
illuminates and a buzzer sounds to inform staff that
someone is in need of assistance. Relevant overdoor
lights, remote sounders and area indicators also operate
(as fitted) to provide additional audible and visual
indication of the call.
A member of staff visits the calling room to assist the
user and resets the calling device to return the system to
normal.
On emergency systems:
In addition to doing everything a standard system does,
a more urgent / extra level of assistance can be
summoned by activating an ‘emergency call’ via an
emergency call point, water resistant alert point or
infrared ceiling receiver (as fitted).
Once activated, the red confidence light on the calling
device will flash to confirm the emergency call has been
registered and the relevant indicator panel light and its
buzzer will flash and sound a more insistent tone to
attract attention. Relevant overdoor lights, remote
sounders and area indicators will also pulse (as fitted) to
provide additional audible and visual indication of the
emergency call.
WHICH SYSTEM SHOULD YOU CHOOSE?
The type of system required will depend upon the
application and the needs of the user so always check with
the approving authority/client before work commences.
In residential care homes, a standard system is normally
acceptable as the main requirement is for the reset
function to be carried out at the source of the call. In
nursing homes, however, some authorities insist on
standard and emergency call facilities so an emergency
system may be required. In most other applications, such
as shops, leisure centres, hotels and public sector
buildings, the type of system and devices required will
depend almost entirely on what the user wants to
achieve. In most instances, referring to the typical
applications diagram overleaf will help all interested
parties come to a decision on what components should
be purchased.
PLANNING A SYSTEM
The following points should be considered when
designing or planning an 800 Series Call System.
Indicator panels
Indicator panels should be sited internally in a clean dry
area which is readily accessible to staff. Various types
and sizes are available covering 1 to 90 zones. Repeater
panels are also available.
Call Points
Any number of call points (of any kind), reset points and
overdoor lights can be wired onto one zone.
Standard call points (including ceiling pulls and
monitoring points) will work on 800 Series standard and
emergency systems but emergency call points will work
on emergency systems only.
Some emergency call points can generate standard and
emergency calls whereas others, such as water resistant
alert points and stainless steel call points, can be set up
to generate standard or emergency calls (not both).
Two methods of reset are available - button or magnetic
key. Reset buttons are fine for non-secure applications
but reset keys are usually preferred in care
establishments as they help prevent patients
inadvertently cancelling their own calls.
Call points without an on-board reset facility, such as
ceiling pulls, must be reset via a reset point or call point
with an on-board reset facility.
A full list of standard and emergency call points and the
facilities they offer can be found at the back of this leaflet.
Ancillary calling devices
A tail call lead or hand/foot operated pneumatic pad can
be connected to a call point’s remote socket (if fitted) to
generate a standard call. For safety reasons, a standard
call will also be made if the ancillary calling device is
inadvertently pulled from its socket.
Monitoring points
Monitoring points can be used to trigger a standard call if
a fire exit, drug cupboard or storeroom is opened and can
be isolated via an on-board keyswitch if required. They
can also be connected to any device with a normally open
or normally closed switch, such as a pressure mat, allowing
it to operate as a standard call point when activated.
Call latch modules
Call latch modules operate in a similar way to monitoring
points but are smaller (for discreet mounting) and do not
include an onboard reset or isolating facility.
Infrared call points, ceiling receivers and transmitters
To help protect staff against aggressive visitors, distressed
patients or intruders, infrared ceiling receivers and call
points can be used in conjunction with infrared
transmitters to remotely trigger standard and/or
emergency calls. Up to three slave ceiling receivers can
be connected to one master ceiling receiver or infrared
call point to provide additional coverage in large or L
shaped rooms. Infrared transmitters typically provide a
10m line-of-sight transmitting range.
Overdoor lights
Overdoor lights (if fitted) are normally installed outside
rooms to increase call indication levels. If required, up to
four zones can be connected to one overdoor light to
provide area indication (in corridors, etc) with additional
zones connectable via one or more input expanders.
Remote sounders
Up to three switchable or remote sounders can be
connected to an indicator panel’s sounder output to
increase call levels.
Relay units
External strobes, sounders, beacons, etc, can be connected
to any zone or group of zones via a 12V relay unit.
Tone only paging
A simple ‘tone-only’ paging option is available (requires
a DP874B/4 UHF paging transmitter). When a call is
made, tone only pagers will beep, prompting staff to
visit the nearest call indicator panel to determine the
exact source and nature of the call.
Master reset buttons
Some indicator panels have an optional master reset
button. If enabled, this facility allows standard calls to
be globally cancelled without the source of the call
being investigated. As there is a definite requirement
in most applications for the caller to be visited before
the call is reset, this facility is normally only utilised in
carefully managed staff-to-staff call systems. In
most other instances we recommend this facility is
disabled.
Mute buttons
All multi-zone emergency indicator panels are supplied
with an optional mute button. If enabled, this allows
any standard calls on the system to be silenced but
leaves relevant indicator light(s) lit. Although a new call
from a different call point will re-activate the sounders,
to ensure callers are visited we recommend this facility is
used only in very carefully managed systems. Emergency
calls cannot be muted.

ceiling pulls, must be reset via a reset point or call point
with an on-board reset facility.
A full list of standard and emergency call points and the
facilities they offer can be found at the back of this leaflet.
Ancillary calling devices
A tail call lead or hand/foot operated pneumatic pad can
be connected to a call point’s remote socket (if fitted) to
generate a standard call. For safety reasons, a standard
call will also be made if the ancillary calling device is
inadvertently pulled from its socket.
Monitoring points
Monitoring points can be used to trigger a standard call if
a fire exit, drug cupboard or storeroom is opened and can
be isolated via an on-board keyswitch if required. They
can also be connected to any device with a normally open
or normally closed switch, such as a pressure mat, allowing
it to operate as a standard call point when activated.
Call latch modules
Call latch modules operate in a similar way to monitoring
points but are smaller (for discreet mounting) and do not
include an onboard reset or isolating facility.
Infrared call points, ceiling receivers and transmitters
To help protect staff against aggressive visitors, distressed
patients or intruders, infrared ceiling receivers and call
points can be used in conjunction with infrared
transmitters to remotely trigger standard and/or
emergency calls. Up to three slave ceiling receivers can
be connected to one master ceiling receiver or infrared
call point to provide additional coverage in large or L
shaped rooms. Infrared transmitters typically provide a
10m line-of-sight transmitting range.
Overdoor lights
Overdoor lights (if fitted) are normally installed outside
rooms to increase call indication levels. If required, up to
four zones can be connected to one overdoor light to
provide area indication (in corridors, etc) with additional
zones connectable via one or more input expanders.
Remote sounders
Up to three switchable or remote sounders can be
connected to an indicator panel’s sounder output to
increase call levels.
Relay units
External strobes, sounders, beacons, etc, can be connected
to any zone or group of zones via a 12V relay unit.
Tone only paging
A simple ‘tone-only’ paging option is available (requires
a DP874B/4 UHF paging transmitter). When a call is
made, tone only pagers will beep, prompting staff to
visit the nearest call indicator panel to determine the
exact source and nature of the call.
Master reset buttons
Some indicator panels have an optional master reset
button. If enabled, this facility allows standard calls to
be globally cancelled without the source of the call
being investigated. As there is a definite requirement
in most applications for the caller to be visited before
the call is reset, this facility is normally only utilised in
carefully managed staff-to-staff call systems. In
most other instances we recommend this facility is
disabled.
Mute buttons
All multi-zone emergency indicator panels are supplied
with an optional mute button. If enabled, this allows
any standard calls on the system to be silenced but
leaves relevant indicator light(s) lit. Although a new call
from a different call point will re-activate the sounders,
to ensure callers are visited we recommend this facility is
used only in very carefully managed systems. Emergency
calls cannot be muted.
