Digital-Dial and Telephone Entry Systems

2-Wire Switchboard Intercom using remote handset type stations. Ideal for apartment houses, bowling alleys, elevators, motels, supermarkets and other applications.


The Alpha Communications®/Elvox™ 142 series intercom system is an internal intercom switchboard system that can be used in Luxury Apartment Buildings, Dormitories, Health Care Facilities, Hotels, Motels, Schools, Offices, Bowling Alleys and Supermarkets. The 142 series is an advanced system, with individual lamp annunciation, conversation privacy, and large remote handset capacity. Models above 60 stations incorporate a 'station multiplier' feature that allows the amount of station selector switches to be reduced by half. This feature greatly reduces the overall size of the master station, for larger systems. Up to 120 (or more) remote handsets can be used and all handsets can call to the switchboard (or be called from the switchboard), with full communication privacy. Model 870W and model 902 handsets are two-tone White/Black and model HT2009/2WH is All-White. All handset models easily mount right on the wall or over a single gang flush electrical back box. All handset models can also be mounted over our optional AP001 or AP777 adaptor plates, when installing the handsets over an existing oversized flush intercom back box.

    Used primarily for Housing Authority and other applications where vandalism is a major concern. This flush unit is made of heavy-duty 11 gauge solid stainless steel.


    Alpha Digital-Dial and Telephone Entry Systems (6)OV-VPLP-SS

    The Ovation™ system is a telephone entry system that connects directly to all of the resident telephone lines in your building. Thus, residents are called without the system having to dial through the central office. As a result, the Ovation system does not generate telephone charges, either on a monthly or per call basis.

    The system is made up of two basic components:

    1. The Ovation™ Controller controls the switching of the resident's telephone lines as well as door control and communications with the visitor. The "S" series is the simplest system and uses the same housing as the Spectrum system. The "V" series is similar to the "S", except it has an integral, lighted directory and uses the same housing as the Vista system. Both the "S"and "V" series are available in handset and hands free models. The "S" and "V" series units are mounted at the entrance of the building or complex. It contains a main processor board and, if the unit is a hands-free model, a hands-free board.

    There is also a Lobby Phone feature which can be used in addition to the "S" and the "V" series of systems. This feature can be used in the handset or in the hands-free models.

    The controller for each of these systems is then connected to a chain of Line Interface Boards, each of which is connected to as many as twelve resident telephone lines.

    2. The Line Interface Boards (LIBs) allow each resident's telephone line to be connected to theOvation™ Controller when a visitor wants to contact that resident. At all other times, the resident's telephone line is connected directly to the telephone company. The Line Interface Boards are contained in an LIB housing which is mounted somewhere inside the building, usually close to the telephone junction box.

    The Ovation™ system is capable of carrying out the following functions (several of these functions are optional, so check with your dealer to determine which capabilities have been included in your system):

    1. Visitor entry: When the visitor presses a "#" key on the controller's keypad followed by the resident's directory code, this switches the selected resident's telephone line to the controller and rings the resident's telephone. The resident can then communicate with the visitor and allow entry at the main door or gate by dialing a "9". If the system is controlling a second door or gate, the resident would dial "5" to allow entry at that location.

    2. Call waiting: If the resident's telephone is in use, he/she will hear 2 short tones to signal that a visitor is attempting to contact him/her. The resident can then dial a "2" and the call in progress will be put on hold and the telephone will be connected to the visitor. If the resident allows entry (as described above), he/she will be automatically switched back to the telephone call in progress. The resident can also deny entry and switch back to the call in progress. Alternatively, if the resident is talking with a visitor and the resident receives a normal phone call, he/she will hear two short tones at which point he/she can put the visitor on hold and switch over to the normal telephone call by dialing a "2" and back again to the visitor by dialing another "2."

    3. Entry codes: Each resident (and any one else you authorize) can have a unique 4-digit entrycode. When this code is entered on the controller keypad (or lobby phone keypad), it will cause the main door or gate to open. The Ovation can have up to 3,000 entry codes programmed into it.

    4. Door monitoring: The installer can place sensors on the door to monitor the status of any door that the system controls. If the door is forced open or held open 60 seconds after it should have been closed, you can program the system to respond in one of the following ways:

    a. Alarm Call (option)*: The system will first call a pre-programmed outside telephone line and send a message via modem. If there is no modem at the pre-programmed number, whoever answers will hear a series of tones. Pressing any key on their tone dial telephone will acknowledge someone has received the alarm call and the system will connect the answering phone to the system speaker and microphone (or ring the Lobby Phone). If there is no answer at the pre-programmed number, the system will call the pre-programmed manager lines in their order of priority and report with tones as described above.

    b. Close a relay: If relay 2 is programmed as an alarm relay, the system will close that relay to activate a device the installer has connected to it (for example, a siren).

    5. Free exit through a monitored door: The system can provide free exit through either controlled entry to allow exit without causing a forced open door condition.

    6. Access for the Post Office or Fire Department: Connections are included in the system to make certain the post office and fire department can gain access to the building without contacting anyone to allow entry. These features will be connected by the installer and the relevant agency.

    7. Direct operator control of doors/gates (option)*: The controlled doors or gates can be activated from the manager's tone dial or any off site tone dial telephone (using the door/gate control functions requires that the remote programming option be purchased).

    8. Remote Programming (option)*: The Ovation system can be remotely programmed from the manager's tone dial telephone or from any outside tone dial telephone.

    9. Remote diagnostics (option)*: The Ovation system can be called using a terminal connected to a Hayes-compatible modem or a personal computer running terminal emulation software. You can then access information concerning the system's operating parameters, the entry codes programmed into the system, the LIB board numbers used by the system, and the customized directory codes programmed into the system.

    * These items do not require the installation of a separate reserved telephone line.

    The Ovation™ Vandal-Proof Lobby Panel is located at the entrance of the building/complex and is used in door control and communications with the visitor. The Vandal-Proof Lobby Panel is enclosed in a vandal-resistant stainless steel enclosure with an audio board and keypad inside. This unit is connected to the auxiliary port on the Ovation™ controller board.
