The NICR will read the smartcard when it is at a distance of up to 20mm in front of the card reader. to generate an alarm call when the tamper switch is operated. Figure 43. The relay connection is a “normally open” volts-free contact and the monitoring connections consist of ground (GND) and a return line (IN). A continuously flashing red LED indicates that an error has been detected by the watchdog. The NICR should be mounted in an accessible location (usually next to the entrance door of the room) so that the smartcard can be held close to the reader when the nurse or staff member enters or leaves the room. The NICR offer two auxiliary functions: a relay circuit for switching an external device.56 MHz frequency range used in combination with contactless smartcards.

Appendix B: Connecting and disconnecting the Safe Release Plug
12.6.0.1 Connecting the Safe Release Plug The teleCARE switch modules with socket have a “Red Dot” on the cover plate, at the bottom in the middle. The safe release plug on the teleCARE hand sets has a corresponding “Red Dot” which must line up with the red dot on the switch module and face outwards when plugging in the handset.

Figure 70. Aligning the red dots on switch module and the Safe Release plug The recommended and easiest way to plug the Safe Release plug into the socket is shown in the illustration below.

Figure 71. Connecting the Safe Release plug into the socket To plug in the “Safe Release” plug, carefully insert one side of the plug connector into the socket. Hold that side firmly in place and at the same time, push the other side of the plug up into the socket until it locks in with a “click”.

Clean the switch modules by wiping them with a moistened (not dripping) soft cloth which is soaked in a solution of mild detergent and water. A solution of 1% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) and water can be used to disinfect the switch modules. Do not use aggressive or abrasive cleaning agents. Do not immerse the switch modules in liquids or use water spray to clean switch modules.
