    KB-701 - Overview

    The Clear-Com KB-701 Encore Intercom System Speaker Station is designed for use in theatres, live performances, industrial environments, and small television facilities. It features speech intelligibility, even at high-noise levels, and can be customized through its programmable options. Local or remotely controlled talking or listening is selectable and allows either hands-on or hands-free operation. The talk button operates in momentary mode. The integral microphone and speaker offer half-duplex communication.

    The KB-701 offers both visual and audible call signaling to attract the attention of operators. A balanced program input allows the monitoring of external audio through the speaker. This program input can also be used as a paging function. The integral speaker's volume level can be adjusted using a front-panel knob. An internal control allows setting a minimum speaker level. An automatic speaker switching circuit will quiet the speaker when the talk button is activated.

    The KB-701 receives power from the Clear-Com intercom line. The unit mounts either in a standard four-gang electrical outlet box or in an optional Clear-Com V-Box. The extra-thick front panel and compact surface-mount circuitry maintains Clear-Com ruggedness. The intercom channel connects to a plug-on-screw terminal strip. Male and female three-pin XLR connectors are provided on the optional V-Box to offer a through connection to the intercom channel.

    Please Note! This item is just one component of a larger system. Please refer to the diagram for ideas and recommendations for your Clear-Com intercom system.
