Question: We are presently using electrical buzzer system which uses 230V A.C.To use your Nurse Call System should we change the wiring?
Answer: No, you need not change the wiring .We have an interface converter to work with your existing 230V AC Cabling. You can continue to use the present call button working with 230V AC which is not recommended for safety reasons. If you want to go for safer calling units, you can order for calling units (CU232) which is designed to work at lower voltage at the patient side but operates at 230V AC on the wiring. This offers dual advantage of Aesthetic calling units working with 230V AC and protecting the patient from higher voltage. It is required to use NCS-Esteem version for this application.
