Intercom Entrance Panel
The Alpha Communications® AM492 series Tek-Guard™ VandalResistant entrance panel is a modular series for use with simplex
type, loudspeaker suite stations.
Panels are equipped with a mylar, voice-frequency
response speaker protected by a louvered speaker grille. The
speaker panel can accommodate up to 18 push buttons. The
aluminum push button actuators may be engraved with up to four
letter/digit combinations (at extra cost). For more than 18 suites
the AM492 is used in conjunction with the AM490 series
push button panel modules (without a speaker).
Pressing the button corresponding to the desired name and
suite number causes a signal at the apartment station. The
resident may then converse with the caller. Controlled entry is
permitted by push button operation of the electric door release.
AM492 panels with 0 - 10 buttons are available with postal option
(add suffix 'P' to the model number).
