In Automatic Turn-Off the unit turns itself off after a programmed amount
of inactivity (up to 4 minutes). It can only be turned on again by pressing its
Call button on the Callbox. In this mode it cannot receive calls from
other intercom or handheld radio units. It can only make calls and then other
units can respond.
In Normal mode, the unit does not turn itself
off and the Callbox can not only make calls, but receive
them as well. This mode consumes the largest amount of power and
should only be considered if an external source of power is available. If an external source of power is used, the internal batteries
can be installed as a back-up against loss of power.
The Callbox is housed in a fiberglass
enclosure with a stainless steel faceplate that includes
tamper-resistant fasteners and a concealed antenna making it
perfect to withstand harsh elements.
