Digital Two-Way Radio Networks for Transport
Developments in digital two-way radio technology have provided considerable improvements in audio clarity, even in situations where loud background noise is an issue, the working conditions are tough and the weather is severe, workers will hear and be heard no matter what the environment around them brings.
Long Battery Life with Digital Radios
With today’s digital radios you will benefit from improved battery life. There is now a wide range of battery size and capacity available and, with the implementation of Lithium Ion technology, some radio models can experience up to 30 hours of battery life, from a single charge. (Subject to usage conditions).
Transport Employee Safety with Two-Way Radio
Employee safety is paramount, especially when 24-hour shift patterns need to be considered. Two-way radio systems can provide an effective means for Lone Worker and Man Down monitoring. The requirement for an automated monitoring function can be met using digital radio systems. This provides users with the ability to activate emergency alarms if they fail to respond within a pre-determined time. Lone Worker emergency can also monitor employee activity from a centralised control room, or by using a supervisor’s display radio.
The use of GPS positioning digital radio can help emergency teams in their response, to save vital minutes, often making the crucial difference in maintaining employee safety. With the addition of Man Down tilt switches it is possible for emergency alarms sequences to be triggered, based on the user’s body position. This means that should they fall, the radio will send an emergency message, even when the users physically can’t.
