McKee Intercom Systems

Metro uses the The 120 HoistCom from McKee communications.  This system is easy to install and will operate on any elevator/hoist with a power or steel wire cable going from the base to the car. No antenna wires are needed. Signal is transmitting between the car and building floor units by inducing onto the ground leg of power cable or around the whole cable.
