The KB-701 remote speaker station connects to a single channel of partyline intercom, and operates in half-duplex mode, similar to a walkie-talkie. It features both an integral speaker and a flush-mount electret microphone with mic limiter and a push-to-talk button.

Note: Access the Encore Power Supply Calculator to estimate power requirements for analog partyline systems.


  • Half-duplex, push-to-talk functionality
  • Four modes of operation that are internally programmable
  • Microprocessor controlled logic and switching
  • Balanced local program input with separate level control
  • Visual and audible call signaling
  • Optional 4-wire daughter board for flexibility
  • Wall or console mountable, or optional V-Box for portable or desktop use
  • Built-in speaker
