Wireless Call Cord adds a portable pendant transmitter to a patient station on any manufacturer’s nurse call system. The VL440-E includes a receiver, a power supply and a cord that plugs directly into the 1/4” jack on the patient station. While the Wireless Call Cord is plugged in to the patient station, pressing the call button on the pendant transmitter associated with the station will annunciate on the existing nurse call system console exactly the same as if the patient station had been activated. The VL440-E additionally provides a jack for the existing patient station call cord so that it also annunciates on the nursing station whenever it is used. Wireless Call Cord may alternately be used to provide wireless bed exit notification at the console when equipped with a VL965-E transmitter and bed exit sensor pad.
