Tecpro LS371

Talkback Loudspeaker Stations

The new Tecpro LS371 is a single circuit, wall mounting Loudspeaker Station featuring a carefully selected compact 70mm x 40mm loudspeaker, and a flush mounted electret microphone. The microphone, loudspeaker and associated controls are mounted on a machined aluminium plate designed to fit a standard domestic back box (part 27-379 Tecpro LS379FB flush-mounting back box for LS371) of the type typically used for cooker switch units. Suitable M6 screws are supplied for attaching the aluminium front plate. Spares are available (part 27-379).

LS371 Series Talkback Loudspeaker Stations

Product Description

The LS371 Loudspeaker Station is designed to provide local monitoring of a single intercom circuit without the need to wear headphones. The built-in microphone allows full duplex (simultaneous talk and listen) conversations to take place. Feedback cancellation circuitry helps avoid acoustic howl-round when speaker and microphone are operating together. To further reduce feedback, a gooseneck microphone (which allows the operator to speak closer to the mic capsule) may be plugged in, disabling the internal microphone. If required, a headset may be plugged in, disabling both the internal microphone and speaker.

Pressing the 'Call' button causes 'Call Alert' lights on other Tecpro user stations to flash to attract the attention of operators who may have momentarily removed their beltpack and headset. The LS371 Loudspeaker Station can both detect and generate 'Remote Mic Kill' tone. If tone is detected and the microphone is active, it will be automatically switched off to help control the build up of unnecessary noise and chatter.

Pressing the 'Speaker Mute' button silences the loudspeaker output. To prevent important announcements going unheard when muted, the LS371 Loudspeaker Station will automatically restore audio levels to a pre-determined volume when an 'Override' control signal is generated elsewhere on the intercom circuit. The 'Override' loudspeaker volume can be set anywhere between zero and full volume.

Note: Care should be taken when using multiple LS300 Loudspeaker Stations in hands-free duplex mode. Although excellent acoustic feedback cancellation can be achieved at each station, system feedback can occur if several hands-free units are operated simultaneously. Using the microphone in push-to-talk mode will help reduce feedback. Alternatively, using a headset will eradicate the problem.
