Medical Emergency

 Neck TransmitterGiven the choice, most seniors and persons with medical conditions or physical challenges would prefer to live in their own homes and be as independent as possible.  That’s not always the case, but for many, this dream can become a reality with the addition of one easy-to-use communications device. The UL Listed PERS-3600 (PERS: Personal Emergency Reporting System) connects to a telephone line and automatically places a call for help whenever assistance is needed, any time of the day or night.

The table-top console provides “pushbutton” emergency assistance to anyone who desires additional security and peace of mind. The Console’s emergency alarm can be triggered by the large, easy to find, help button on the top of the Console or by using a wireless wristband or pendant transmitter.
For the visually impaired, each button on the Console is molded with braille characters to identify the button’s function. The Console can also function as a fire alarm triggered by compatible wireless smoke detectors. The Console can receive signals from up to 16 Linear DX or DXS Series wireless transmitters.

Activating a transmitter causes the Console’s built-in digital communicator to send the appropriate alarm report to the central monitoring station. In addition to the central station report, audible and visual indications occur and the alarm relay energizes during an emergency activation. Electronic Stress Testing (ESS) is a Quality Assurance process that is generally used by companies that supply products to the military or the aerospace industry. Linear performs rigorous temperature testing of every Console to ensure reliability. The procedure involves a three-cycle temperature testing procedure from -22º to +149º Fahrenheit.

In addition, the PERS-3600 Console is UL listed as a home health care signaling device under UL1637 and as a smoke alarm accessory.

VOICE PROMPTSRemote Transmitter
To simplify operation, the Console can “speak” to the subscriber with its builtin digitally synthesized voice. The Console can say “emergency”, “fire”, “timer done soon”, and other system operation, setup, and supervisory prompts from a 49 word vocabulary.

The PERS-3600 Console can perform two-way voice activated (duplex), twoway manual, and one-way listen-only audio communications through the Console’s built-in high-sensitivity microphone and speaker. Communications with central station monitoring personnel starts after an alarm. Communications can also be started without any subscriber action by calling the Console twice from any telephone and keying in a four digit password.

As a special feature, the PERS-3600 Console can record and play up to eight 15-second audio reminder messages. The reminder messages can be used to help the subscriber remember to take medications, call someone, get ready for an appointment, etc. Each message is controlled by a real time clock and can be programmed via the RA-2400 software to play daily, every other day, weekly, or 30 day schedule. Reminder messages are played and repeated in three-minute intervals for either 15 or 30 minutes until canceled. Messages can also be programmed for single-play.

For verifying that the subscriber is performing normal household activity, the optional activity timer can be set for 8, 12 or 24 hour operation. The emergency alarm will trigger automatically if the time set elapses before a motion sensing, switch activated, or pushbutton activity transmitter is triggered or the Console’s home button is pressed.

The Console can be programmed to act as a remote controlled “speakerphone”. With the speakerphone mode enabled, the Console will monitor the telephone line for an incoming call. Activating any emergency transmitter (or the Console’s help button) while the telephone is ringing will cause the Console to seize the line and begin speakerphone communications. Activating any emergency transmitter (or pressing the help button) during the call will disconnect the line. The Console will auto-disconnect after 15, 30, or 60 minutes.

The Console’s digital communicator can route calls to three telephone numbers (using Contact ID or 4x2 format). The telephone line is constantly monitored; line failure and restoral can be locally announced by the Console.

Supervised transmitters regularly send status reports to the Console and/or low battery reports when their batteries are low. When the Console receives a low battery report, the status indicator blinks. If the Console fails to receive a status report from a transmitter for a period of 24 hours, the status indicator will light. All supervisory conditions can sound a local annunciation and be reported to the central station.

Powered by a low voltage plug-in transformer, the Console has provisions for a rechargeable backup battery for operation during AC power outages. A power switch allows for out-of-service storage of the Console without discharge of the battery. The battery is recharged by the Console, even if the power switch is off (as long as the transformer is plugged into a working outlet). If the backup battery becomes low, the power light will flash and the condition can be reported to the central station.
