Fire Appliance Comms
Brochure Application Note
The Firefront™ Universal Appliance Communications System allows up to six X10DR Elite devices to be connected to the Fire appliance host mobile radio to provide a comprehensive, local intercom and network access system for firefighters.
Specifically, it allows the vehicle’s Commander to decide at any time which team members listen to what radio traffic and who can talk over the radio channel/s. Typical systems provide local at-scene, off-network private AES secure communications with the ability to also monitor and transmit over the vehicle’s main despatch mobile radio for up to 700 meters from the vehicle.
Additional facilities include the ability to monitor other radio channels (e.g. volunteers using UHF radios) or the ability for multiple vehicles to link together into larger work teams with a shared local intercom network.
