Wireless nurse call system

Nurse call is a set of devices that helps patients to call nurse staff or attendant in distress. By mere press of a remote button, patients can now summon nurse on duty. This is a basic and essential necessity of any hospitals or clinic.

FORBIX SEMICON made a technological development in producing the world’s simplest nurse call. The wireless nurse call system (as the name suggests), works on wireless technology. The units need no wiring, nor any installation. All the components of wireless nurse call system are modular. The seamless integration enables the solution to scale as per need of the clinic.

Calling remotes and the improved versions of nurse station are basic building blocks. It is possible to add any number of repeater booster for range enhancement. Hence, in practical scenarios, there is no limitation to the range of communication. Moreover, the calling points in the call systems is scalable and expandable in future. Further, the future expansion does not alter the existing system. FORBIX SEMICON nurse call units are working from past one decade. The quality itself speaks for the reliability and robustness of the system. The nurse call communication units deployed at more than 10,000 locations worldwide.

Repeater (booster) for range enhancement (model: FBXCSRPT01/02)

Practically there is no limitation to the range of communication.  Repeaters (boosters) has the capability to receive remote signal and forward.  The forwarded signal has higher SNR (signal to noise ration).  Thereby, increasing the range of communication.  It is possible to have any number of intermediate repeaters.  Without repeaters the range of communication is around 20-30 meters indoors.  Whereas, outdoors the range increases to 100-120 meters.  There are 2 types of repeaters:

  • Normal power (without antenna) [boots 20-30 meters]
  • High power (with antenna) [boosts 40-60 meters]
