“Obsidian Stone” is the symbol of purity and strength. In 5th millennium BC, in Anatolia, the first humanbeings produced their curring tools from obsidian mine. Today, this black colored mine is still used as surgical scalpel and gemstone.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
ObsidianRBST a doorbell panel with video conversation. Functions carried on the bell panel are designed with modular architecture. The camera, screen, speakers and microphone, keypad, card reader are each separate functioning modules and can be used with various alternatives depending on the project requirements. "Functional modules" with the aluminum extrusion profile, create the body of the product and there are LED wall washers lighting on both sides of the ObsidianRBST.
With its metallic appearance on both sides of the product, aluminum extrusion profile gives a robust, durable and simple impression while enhancing the mechanical durability of the product against outer factors and impacts. Function modules consist of an injection molding of plastic parts. Modules have interconnectors therefore mounting of the product to the site of use (field) is easier and takes shorter than its alternatives.
Black and metallic color exhibits an appealing image in many different environments and makes it suitable for crowded business centers, residences, skyscrapers and even for farm houses.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
ObsidianRBST, can be used with alternative choices such as the classic bell panels.
The camera module is used to send the image of the person using the bell panel into the building and position of the mobile camera can be automatically adjusted from the control unit inside the building. With the display module, selection and confirmation among the flat info displayed on the screen can be done and doorbell of the desired flat can be chosen using the digital display and selection buttons right below it. Speaker and microphone (intercom) module enable voice calls. Using the keypad module,the doorbell of the dialed number can be rang or access to the building can be provided with a password. Card reader module allows the card holders to enter the building. Names of apartment residents are written on the name holders in the bell module and the doorbell can be rung by pushing the chosen bell buton. LED light bars located on both sides of ObsidianRBST lighting (wall washer LED lights) provide trouble-free operation even at night and in poor lighting situations.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project was started in July2011 and completed in February2012 in "Ankara, TURKEY". Currently, it produced by NETELSAN Inc. in the own factory.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Building Materials, Construction Components, Structures & Systems Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The ObsidianRBST is made of injection plastic and extrusion aluminium.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
width 140mm x depth 30mm x height 400mm (variable with the quantity of modules)

The aim was to stop being dependent on manual manufacturing methods and design an easy-to-mount bell panel that could appeal to a wide user profile .
The use of human centered manufacturing methods were reduced while parts producable by automation systems were increased. In this context, function modules were created and wiring (cable harness) and screwing workmanship were reduced to a minimum. Function modules located in the rails in aluminum extrusion profile body automatically complete the electronic link between themselves with the internal connectors.
According to the requirements of the project, various types of product combinations can be formed using the required function modules. Service and maintenance operations and product upgrades can be easily done thanks to modular construction. Product installation is quick and easy. Design features allow use in all kind of grounds and environments including luxury buildings due to its elegant look and both inner and outer environments with its solid construction. By repetition of modular groups, a number of panel groups can be used together according to the number of flats in the building. This way, its use can be achieved through side by side arrangement of several panel groups together.
