- Wired intercom for noisy boats.
This is the standard self contained Wire Intercom for drier and less demanding environments. For small RIBS and Vehicles.
It gives similar isolation to rated ear-defenders but has no EN ratings so is suitable for occasional use in noisy applications. Otherwise noise and comms performance is identical to the other versions of Wire.
Wire Intercom was developed for Bomb Disposal communications and proven in Marine, Industrial and Rail, maintenance applications.
No need shout when at speed. Speak clearly and hands-free under the noisiest conditions. This version of the Wire intercom is built into a weather resistant noise suppression headset designed for long term comfort and years of use.
‘Wire’ is packed with a sophisticated speech processor and full-duplex intercom enabling clear, hands-free speech under noisy and demanding conditions.
Each crew member plugs their Intercom into the Marine User Port (MUP) and you can have many MUPs located around the boat as positions at which crew can work.
What is ‘Wire’
- WIRE is a cable connected Intercom.
- WIRE is supplied as either an ear defender headset or beltpack and headset.
- WIRE uses ASP for clear speech up to 100dB and beyond.
- The intercom is full-duplex. No button pressing, open-mic for all users (optional PTT version).
- WIRE is hubless using Multiple Port Line (MPL) for simplicity and reliability.
- There is no central controller or hub to fail.
- All the technology is in the headsets or belt pack. Should a headset fail it can be swapped by the end user without technical skills or support.
- Wire can be interfaced to two-way radios.
- WIRE is not fussy about its cable, virtually any low cost cable can be used.
- Wire is powered from anywhere along the cable. From battery, vehicle or mains.
- Active speech processing dynamically adjusts the Mic and intercom performance to match ambient sound levels.
- Mic gain is adjusted as background noise varies. More noise and the Mic becomes less sensitive.
- Sounds above a preset level are compressed to prevent distortion and keep speech clear and intelligible.
- The Mic is automatically muted when the user is not talking, this means only the users voice is heard over the intercom and ambient noise is silenced making the system quieter and pleasant to use.
- Multi port line is just that, a single cable with as many headset ports (sockets) along its length that you require. The cable can be linear, star, loop or drop wired.
- The MPL provides power and routes the intercom signal to each headset.
- There is no Intercom controller or ‘Hub’. Wire is hubless with the only electronics being in each headset eliminating a single point of failure cause intercom failure.
- Interference free. MPL is a low impedance, high level signal system resistant to interference even when using plain unshielded and untwisted cable.
