Jeron Electronic Systems, Inc., announces wiring changes to the Provider 680 audio-visual nurse call system. The Provider 680 no longer requires shielded wiring between the main control and rooms for bus stations. This innovation reduces the amount of wiring and connections by one-third. Multipair, nonshielded cable in a single jacket may be used, including category-5 cable. Original inventories of wiring may still be used by not connecting the shield wires.
