Talk-A-Phone CU-8 Area of Rescue Surface Mount Command Unit

  • Also known as: CU8, TF-CU8

  • Area of Rescue/Refuge (AOR) Surface Mount Command Unit (model CU-8) is part of Talkaphone's total AOR solution that accommodates up to 8 ADA-compliant Area of Rescue/Refuge stations.

    Talkaphone's complete AOR system is fully compliant with the IBC 1007, ADAG 7, ICC A117.1, and NFPA 72 24.5.3. It consists of a Command Unit, a selected number of AOR stations (flush or surface mounted), and AOR signage to accommodate the selected number of AOR stations. The ADA-compliant AOR stations are powered by the Command Unit using one twisted-shielded pair cable from each AOR station to the Command Unit.

    When the user initiates an emergency call from an AOR station, a tone is heard to confirm the call has been placed and an LED light indicates the call has been received. At the same time, the Command Units strobe starts flashing and the siren is initiated. If there are other callers on the line, the Command Unit receives and queues the call. Each queued emergency call is displayed as a flashing red light on the Command Unit, which can be labeled for easy location identification. AOR stations can also be programmed to play a location identifier message when a call is answered. An active call is displayed as solid red. The Command Units siren deactivates when the call is answered by local fire personnel. The strobe will deactivate only when all emergency lines have been cleared.

    The Command Unit can route an emergency phone call to a 911 center or other designated location via a Telco line if no one is available to answer the call after an installer programmed amount of time. An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is included to provide more than 4 hours backup of the complete communications system.
