Since the creation of the first mobile two way radio, system designers and radio manufacturers have grappled with how to enhance user mobility when away from the vehicle. Historically, their response typically required involving additional portable hand-held radios and significant additions to base station infrastructure; and building more radio sites incorporating complex remote receiver voting systems to back fill marginal coverage areas. Moreover, some manufacturers developed cumbersome vehicle based mobile repeater systems where simplex portable transmissions are repeated through a vehicle repeater back into the base station network. These systems required careful engineering, additional frequencies and critically complex contention management protocols to eliminate clashing from multiple vehicle repeaters at scene. We thought, there had to be a better solution.
In 2012, Wireless Pacific unleashed the X10DR Secure Wireless Microphone that truly delivers a Powerfully Simple™ and cost effective solution to this age-old mobile radio problem. With over ten thousand X10DR units in service globally, we have enhanced the world’s best out of vehicle communication solution, to now be even better. Today, we proudly introduce our 2nd generation X10DR models: Elite & Pro. Now talk up to 500 meters out of the vehicle (and counting).
A Complete Mission Critical Solution...
Specifically designed to meet the stringent demands of mission critical users, the ruggedized X10DR Elite models feature 128Bit AES encryption to provide the highest levels of voice security. When coupled with their relative short range, random location and the unique coding of every device, AES encryption provides the highest protection against the most sophisticated adversaries. Knowing there are times when officers and first responders may need to wade into deep waters to save lives or property, the Elite handset has also been engineered to provide IP67 waterproof compliance. To provide remote users with network access flexibility when deployed in remote locations, the X10DR Elite models can be connected to special function boxes to allow dual radio access/control operation. Elite gateways provide a high powered 8 watt audio output capability which can be used to provide an ‘in-car monitor’ function or alternatively, can be used as a public address system. Control buttons on the base of the gateway provide independent volume settings. The Elite model uniquely also provides a capability for a dual or triple handset setup where put to 3 secure microphones can operate simultaneously with a single gateway for a lower cost setup. This dual connectivity capability means that the cost of a second gateway as well as the antenna, junction box and interface cables are not incurred. A mobile charger is available for the additional handsets in these situations.
The X10DR Pro model is the latest incarnation of Wireless Pacific’s patented well proven ‘out of vehicle’ X10DR communications solution. Providing all existing X10DR established ‘out of vehicle’ capabilities, multiple 2nd generation X10DR devices can now be connected to a common mobile radio via a low cost junction box allowing users to choose to either talk over the radio channel or alternatively, just talk locally “off-net” to other X10DR users sharing the same mobile radio. All voice communications plus system alert tones from the mobile radio and other connected X10DR users are audible at all times ensuring users are totally connected.
The X10DR Lite model is the most simple, low cost, yet safe way for your workforce to maintain group based, two way communication, ensuring your team’s effectiveness, whether your staff are working, in or out of their vehicle. X10DR Lite, ensures you maintain your occupational safety & health (OS&H) compliance by allowing your staff to stay connected to their mobile radio for up to 300 meters, when working away from their vehicle. Your staff are only a single button press away from calling for assistance over their mobile two way radio.
X10DR Lite delivers the same out of vehicle communications performance reliability as its X10DR Pro/Elite model variants, in a slimmed down package which does not have the advanced systems features (& associated additional cost) that is demanded by first responders using the X10DR Elite model. X10DR Lite was designed specifically for every other mobile two way radio user that seeks the same liberating and proven, long distance wireless microphone communication out of their vehicle found in every X10DR released since its very first, patented, conception.
