Intercom Product News

We are excited about 1500 Series III coming next year, and everyone wants to know when the new Series III models are going to be available. We heard you, and we will be giving you more details on this blog and via email when the time draws near. Phase 1 includes most of the new models like the counter station, mini hubs and the dual lane station. Phase 2 will bring you some new features for 1510 hubs and next gen video customer stations. Many other improvements will be phased in as they become available.

Counter Station: Model 1500B

  • New features: sleek magnetic keypad for easy lane key color setup. Headset jack does not requre an adapter. Modular handset and video upgrades are easily performed in the field.
  • Bottom line: the counter station will retain most of the features of the 1500A, including the best audio in the business. Easy field-upgrades mean fewer counter station models you need to keep in stock. Works with compatible wireless headsets using standard cable.
  • Backwards compatible: works with previous 1500 series hubs and lane stations. 
  • Availability: Phase 1 (Spring 2023).

Counter Station and Accessories

Counter Station Video: Model 1502B

  • New features: the all-new design provides 50% more screen area, sleek styling, and easy field upgrades. The video screen is native 4:3 ratio for natural looking images from the lane.
  • Bottom line: the most visible element of a video intercom system, the monitor contributes to the modern, elegant atmosphere in a bank or pharmacy. The screen size makes face-to-face interactions more friendly and personal. Quick field upgrades mean fewer counter station models to keep in stock.
  • Backwards compatible: can be installed on 1500A counter stations.
  • Availability: Phase 1 (Spring 2023).

Handset Cradle with Magnetic Hook Switch: Model 1503B

  • New features: the all-new cradle is designed for easy field installation. The magnetic hook switch is ultra-reliable.
  • Bottom line: easy field install means fewer counter station models to keep in stock. 
  • Compatibility: must be installed on 1500B counter stations.
  • Availability: Phase 1 (Spring 2023).

Video Mini Hub: Model 1509BV

  • New features
  • Bottom line: The majority of video installations fall in the 1:1 up to 2:4. The 1500 series has the 1:1 configurations covered very well, and with the new video mini-hub, the remainder of the small to mid-size system configurations will be much more cost-effective and profitable to install. 
  • Backwards compatible: works with previous 1500 counter and lane stations. 
  • Availability: Phase 1 (Spring 2023).

Audio Mini Hub: Model 1509B

  • New features: grounded jacks for better audio. The 1509B is an updated version of our current audio mini hub, so its other features will not change. 
  • Backwards compatible: works with previous 1500 counter and lane stations. Does not include program audio inputs.
  • Availability: Phase 1 (Spring 2023).

Dual Lane Station: Model 1522B

  • New features: 1:1 and 1:2 functionality for audio systems without a hub. 
  • Backwards compatible: works with previous 1500 counter stations. Not compatible with 1580 series.
  • Bottom line: the 1522B will be essential for two lane audio systems. The 1500 series has always been perfect for single lane systems - no hub required. Now our dual lane station gives you the same efficiency for common deal drawer +1 lane configurations. 
  • Availability: Phase 1 (Spring 2023).

1522B Dual Lane Station
Lane Station: Model 1520B 
  • New Features: grounded jacks prevent ground loops, improving audio.
  • Backwards compatible: works with previous 1500 counter stations. 
  • Bottom line: The 1520 remains a solid performer with all the connection points you rely on.
  • Availability: Phase 1 (Spring 2023).
