The Cell Call and Affray Alarm System has been developed specifically as a call system within police custody units as well as Crown Magistrates and County Courts. The system consists of a range of “panic” or “affray” buttons or “strips” which report back to the central LCD displays to sound the alarm and show the calling location where assistance is required.

There are a range of calling devices, triggers and buttons to generate an alarm, all of which can be configured for 5 different levels of status either “Call”, “Assistance”, “Priority”, “Emergency”, “Attack”.

The call system records all historic system events by logging all system activity including date and time into the built in data logger located in the power supply. All units can either be constructed from stainless steel or ABS plastic mount. Plates can be monitored to prevent unauthorised access or tampering and the system is continually monitored for cable faults, system operation and power failure.

A custom graphical software package is also available providing a clear image of the location where assistance is required, allowing staff to provide a speedy response to any call.

LCD Affray display

Provides audible and visual indication of incoming affray calls. The two line backlit LCD identifies the exact location of the incident, level of call and the person involved (when using IR triggers & receivers). Calls are shown in order of priority and receipt. Calls can be reset by either a key switch or button reset. The LCD also reports the systems status for any tampering, cable or power faults. Multiple displays can be used which can be configured into individual zones.

Double push affray button

A simple to operate double push button with integral red reassurance Led, the buttons can be configured for different operation. Each unit is assigned its own text address location during commissioning.
