RE: [Histonet] Auto dialers (remote alarms) for leica and tissue tekVIP 2000

From:"McGovern, Kevin"


You may need two boxes, depending on how the instruments signal they are in an alarm state. In many cases, they simply short together their output wires, in some, they send out 5VDC. We have a VIP E-150 with a home-brewed alarm box that works well. Your local biomed should be able to cook one up if he has the electrical diagrams for the units. It ain't rocket science!  Good luck.

Another day has gone by with the machine alarming over the weekend and nobody knew until it was too late. Does anyone know about the remote alarms for both of these types of processors? Do I need 2 separate ones or can biomed hook up 1 remote to 2 machines? Where can I find this product? Save a histotech from another Manic Monday! Thanks
