Product Details

The E-40-BN entry phone is a compact, weather and vandal resistant, telephone line powered speaker phone designed to provide two-way handsfree audio communication. The E-40-BN’s compact size allows it to be mounted in a standard single gang electrical box. The E-40-BN’s blue LED continually provides light for locating the push button in dark locations, dims to indicate off hook and flashes during incoming calls.

The E-40-BN entry phone can share a single phone line with house or small business telephones when used with a Viking C-200, C-250, C-500 or C-2000B Entry Phone controller. The E-40-BN entry phone can also be connected to an unused analog station port (programmed for ringdown) on a phone system or connected directly to a telephone line when used with a Viking K-1900-5 or K-1900-30 auto dialer. The E-40-BN features microphone and speaker volume controls, selectable auto answer for monitoring and intelligent call progress detection for automatic hang-up when the call is completed.

Replacement faceplates (PNL40-BN) can be purchased separately.

For outdoor installations where the unit is exposed to precipitation or condensation, use model E-40-BN-EWP. For more information on Enhanced Weather Protection (EWP), see DOD 859.
