The AMT-5 Emergency Call Box (AMT5-ECB) is a hands-free emergency intercom device that connects and integrates to the AMT-5 CAN network. When not used for making calls, it can form part of a speaker network and behaves in the same way as a powered speaker (AMT-5 PAS) with integrated ambient noise sensor.
Calls are managed by one or more controlling nodes on the CAN network. Calls can be initiated by a controlling node or initiated by operating the push button on the front of the ECB. In the push button case the call is managed by a controlling node, with a mechanism for handing over call setup should a controlling node fail during the call setup process.
Controlling nodes can route the call to another AMT-5 device or through a gateway device to an external system including Tetra radio or a VoIP phone.
The ECB has the same self-test functions as the AMT-5 PAS speakers. A health LED is lit while the ECB unit is operational. It is extinguished when a fault is detected.
