The call button is fitted with a red button. It is used to trigger calls and contains a red LED as a location or reassurance light. In addition to the simple model, there is also a call button with a diagnostic jack and/or ancillary plug contact. A medical device is connected to the 4-pole diagnostic jack (RJ11). For example, if the connected device malfunctions, the triggering of a potential-free contact generates a diagnostic call.
The ancillary plug contact features an 8-pole socket (RJ45) with which moveable calling devices such as pear buttons and multiple buttons, a radio set or other control devices can be connected at the patient's bed. Within the Gira nurse call system, the call buttons are connected to a room terminal, room module or call module. The call button variants at a glance:
