SOFIC 2016: Clear-Com's New Wireless Digital Intercom Technology

Clear-Com (booth #219), a global leader in real-time communication and connectivity solutions, is presenting its new DX410 wireless intercom system, the Gateway radio interoperability solution, and the LQ-R four/eight-port IP interface devices.

Reliable intercom and connectivity solutions are an essential component in meeting the needs for tight collaboration, coordination, communication and safety within military, aerospace, and government operations. Whether on wireless or wired systems, over 4-wire circuits or IP networks, Clear-Com’s extensive range of communications systems has the flexibility and scalability to meet complex configurations and is future-proofed to address unforeseen challenges.

Clear-Com's DX410

The DX410 is a license-free, two-channel 2.4GHz digital wireless intercom.  The full-duplex system can be deployed rapidly and is easy to operate; it enables mobile personnel to move freely and is rugged and reliable, making it idea for military, aerospace, and government applications. DX410 features 7 kHz wideband audio for the clearest communication, enhancing safety and situational awareness. Its 2.4GHz Frequency-Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) 64-bit encryption ensures secure, confidential communication. Also, the system’s upgraded radio technology allows better transmission/reception, two-wire/four-wire bridging, and two-wire auto-nulling. Each base station supports up to 15 BP410 wireless beltpacks and/or WH410 all-in-one wireless headsets.

Also on display is the Gateway radio interoperability solution, ideal for immediate on-site communication across different radio frequencies. It combines advanced radio interface technology for analog and digital radios with a suite of programmable features. Gateway does this by bridging radio channels across different radio platforms – be it port-to-port, port-to-multi-port or Radio-over-IP (RoIP) – which enables cross-communication between different frequencies.

Clear-Com's Gateway solution

Clear-Com’s LQ-R four or eight-port IP interface devices, which come in a 1RU form factor, are the latest additions to the LQ Series family. These devices can simply and cost-effectively extend or link any industry-standard 2-wire or 4-wire intercom and audio systems over LAN, WAN or IP networks. The new LQ-R devices can provide either four or eight ports per rack unit, while the compact LQ throw-down devices offer two ports of connectivity. All have the option of either eight 4-wire connections, four 2-wire connections, or four 2-wire and four 4-wire connections in a single unit. The 2-wire option is both Clear-Com and RTS TW compatible.

Clear-Com’s range of high quality, full-duplex intercom and connectivity systems enable users to stay in constant communication,” Scott Shepard, Sales Engineer for the Military, Aerospace, and Government division at Clear-Com, told MT.  “Allowing voice exchanges to occur in real time effectively and efficiently across different communications systems and geographies, enhances safety and security in diverse environments. It also facilitates reliable voice communications between a number of people in order to achieve desired results and collaborate without limits, which fits right in with the focus of this year’s show.”
