General Information

Vandal-Resistant Panel. Natural Anodized Aluminum finish with metal pushbuttons and metal speaker grille. Polycarbonate Name holders supplied alongside buttons.
The AM490 series Tek-Guard entrance panel is a modular style panel, for use with most open-voice (loud-speaking type) apartment intercom stations. AM490 panels are equipped with a weather-resistant mylar cone speaker protected by a louvred style aluminum speaker grille, and solid aluminum pushbutton plungers, to resist vandalism. AM490 series panels are available with a variety of module and frame/housing configurations. Modules beginning with the model AM490 are button modules only, with no speaker. AM490 modules are available with 2 to 22 buttons. Modules beginning with the model AM492 have a 45-ohm speaker and can have up to 18 buttons. Along side each metal pushbutton is a nameholder, made of BLACK flame retardant polycarbonate plastic with a transparent flame retardant polycarbonate plastic cover. Names can easily be inserted using paper tabs (supplied) oroptional engraved plastic nameplates (model #AMNP). AM490 and AM492 modules must be installed into a flush or a surface panel frame. Flush panels require an OF190 series frame, with the OH190 series flush housing. Surface panels require an OF190S series surface frame only, and do not require a back box.
