Many Solutions for multiple scenarios

We have hand-portable and mobile equipment (various models) in analogue and digital formats.  We have a variety of charging solutions, carrying solutions and audio accessories available.  We also have our bespoke deployable control room solutions that offer radio over IP (ROIP) and voice recording facilities.

If you need wider area coverage, we can hire out radio repeaters (boosters).  In certain setups using digital technology, we can get the radios to “roam” between the booster sites.  Portable and deployable radio rebroadcast units are also available for certain unique setups, these can provide gateways between different frequency bands or even between analogue and digital platforms.

Additional Accessories

Spare Batteries – We always have a large serviceable stock of spare Battery packs.  The Lithium-Ion units are high capacity, thinner and a lot lighter than their cheaper counterparts. All batteries are original Motorola NOT cheap 3rd party copies.  This ensures peace of mind and optimal performance.

Remote Speaker Microphone – Noise Cancelling Remote Speaker Microphones with a 3.5mm earpiece jack.  Makes operating the radio a little more convenient.  These items are robust and essential with heavy industry.  Item can be used with the 3.5mm earpiece option (also available).

“Around the ear” 2 wire earpiece/mic – Hygienic around the ear “D” styled 2 wire audio accessories.  Extremely comfortable to wear for long periods with a flexible rubber backband.  The accessory has a combined PTT and microphone, very lightweight.

Lightweight Headset – A lightweight headset (single cup) with a flexible boom mic.  There is an inline PTT unit built into this accessory.

12VDC Charger – This option gives the ability for users to charge the radios or batteries with the vehicle 12VDC.

Peltor Heavy Duty Headset – A twin cupped heavy-duty headset with a flexible boom mic.  There is an inline PTT unit built into this accessory.  This item offers hearing protection and is the same unit that airports use.

“In the ear” 2 wire earpiece/mic – non-hygienic in the ear styled 2 wire audio accessories.  Extremely covert.  The accessory has a combined PTT and microphone, very lightweight.  ** The rubber tip and clear tube need to be purchased for hygiene reasons.
