Our two-way radio systems are designed with the end user in mind, always focussing on meeting your exact requirements, 2CL will strive to design a system, tailored to your specifications.

Key Considerations for Two-Way Radio System Design

With every system designed by 2CL, there are several important key considerations which are always taken into account:

What do you need the system to do?

Who do you need to talk to, and what sort of information needs to be communicated?

How would you like the system to work?

Who needs to speak to who, are any emergency systems already in place? How are the radios going to work day-to-day?

Who will be managing the system?

Some systems are continually monitored, others may be purely 9-5, with no overall management of the system. Both options have different considerations.

Where do you need the system to work?

This has potentially huge implications on how we build the system and is possibly one of the most important considerations.

These are only a few of the key considerations, but you can begin to appreciate the care and attention to detail required for the successful design of an effective two-way radio system. 

At 2CL we have built our reputation on a foundation of satisfied customers and the continuing support provided. With 2CL you can be sure of a long-standing business relationship, built on trust and excellent customer service.

The team at 2CL has a desire to build on the initial system design, and work with customers through installation phases, and maintain relationships with excellent customer care and after sales support. You will enjoy the peace of mind that a two-way radio system from 2CL will give you, safe in the knowledge your needs are being considered and catered for.

The Process of System Design

During the development of the system in use for Compass Minerals at their underground salt mine in Winsford, 2CL were heavily involved with the customer directly. Before a two-way radio system could be sold and installed, 2CL carried out extensive coverage surveys.

Due to the nature of the environment, certain design elements needed consideration. For example, due to the high levels of dust produces during the mining process, all repeater units needed to be held off the ground, and also enclosed in Ingress Protection rated cabinets.

The conclusion of an extensive design and consultation phase has been the successful running of a Motorola digital two-way radio system for over 5 years now. For more details see the petrochemical and mining sector page.
