The UL® 1069 certified MICRA nurse call system is a microcontroller-based stand-alone master station. This master station receives and answers calls from patient rooms and other staff locations. Moreover, the MICRA incorporates the basic features of the UNC9210. Features that include Direct Call and Utility screens. Staff Locator, as well as Nurse Follower and Patient Scan, also come as features.
As a self-contained unit, the MICRA consists of a 7-inch touch screen display and audio communication module all in one. Crystal clear audio is possible with the addition of a 2-way amplifier and a 2 1⁄4-inch speaker added to the communications module. Plus, an electret microphone for hands-free communication and a handset for privacy rounds out the audio components.
A minimum of 12 programmable levels of calls are features of the MICRA nurse call system. These features include Normal, Priority, Staff Assist, Cordout, Code Blue, etc. For easy recognition, each call is identified by a unique icon color and accompanying programmable tone signal. The master includes a USB port for quick updates. For efficiency, downloading settings to transfer to another master station is also possible via USB.
