-- Savox Communications enhances its range of professional radio accessories with the launch of a new Two Way Radio Push To Talk Unit / Communications Controller, the Savox C-C440. Savox Communications products improve the effectiveness of individuals communicating in demanding environments and the new product further enhances the breadth of the Savox portfolio.
The Savox C-C440 Unit is connected to the user’s professional two way radio and provides a remote ‘Push To Talk’ facility via a large, easy to access surface button. The unit can be secured to the users clothing, typically on the chest, which means there is no need to repeatedly reach for the two way radio itself to operate it. The C-C440 is ideal for use when the radio is required to be worn underneath protective clothing.
The large surface PTT also provides easier and more consistent operation of the two way radio in situations where the hands are being used primarily for other tasks. The unit is designed to be used with heavy duty gloves such as those used by firefighters.
One of the main benefits of this new device is the extreme durability which this unit provides. Being rugged and durable for use in the most extreme situations, the product is approved to the IP67 standard, which means it is totally dust proof and submersible in water up to depth of 1m. ATEX compliant versions will become available soon. The extensive environmental tests that the product has endured and designed to meet. As one of the only products available on the market today meeting these requirements including the new Savox Advanced Field Acceptance Test, we feel confident about the success of this product in the market place.
One totally new feature of the C-C440 is the emergency button, that provides a manual method of sending an alert via the radio that the user is in distress. (Note – this only works with radio models that provide this feature). The Savox C-C440 includes a 4 pole quick release connector which means it is compatible with the wide range of Savox bone microphones and other types of headsets, providing the ultimate flexibility for the user.
The new physical form includes ‘castellations’
on the periphery of the unit for improved grip and operation of the product when in the hand. The unique tactility of the large surface area Push To Talk button has been improved and it can be operated even from the extreme edge of the button.
Built on the success of the Savox C-C400, the C-C440 is a totally new product, which has been designed, engineered and manufactured uniquely to both the end users requirements and Savox Communications standards. It is rugged, lightweight and ideal for use by firefighters, but is also suited for use in other sectors where clear communication is essential such as Oil & Gas Industries, Petrochemical plants, Water treatment facilities, Power generation, Distribution and Mining.
Mikael Westerlund, Chief Strategy Officer of Savox Communications adds, ‘The Savox C-C400 is already used by fire brigades throughout the world. The new Savox C-C440 is building on this pedigree whist updating the design to meet the needs of the modern firefighter. We are listening to the market and by manufacturing in house to our own high standards are putting quality at the top of our agenda. We thoroughly expect the new C-C440 to be even more successful than the existing C-C400.’
