converter (modem) or connected to another EF-701M
over twisted-pair cable such as CAT-5E.
TW-12C System Interface
TW-12C connects one intercom system to another.

“Following the devastating EF5 tornado that leveled Greensburg, KS, on May 4, 2007, we decided that providing
a state-of-the-art community communications system was essential to bringing our community and county back
together. We wanted to deploy proven, reliable communications systems in both of our HDTV broadcast production
environments, and Clear-Com equipment was our preferred choice.”
