Swiss miniaturized communications specialist Phonak Communications has launched the Profilo Nano, which it describes as ‘the most advanced covert earpiece ever offered to the security market’.
For covert radio users such as undercover police and surveillance teams, two things matter above all else: uninterrupted communications and discretion. Phonak, which produces the Phonito earpiece family, said that the Profilo Nano will provide the security market with a new receiver solution that meets both these needs.
This next-generation covert earpiece is so small as to be completely invisible to bystanders and thanks to its proprietary transductive technology it is 100% immune to the electromagnetic interference (EMI) that alarm systems, vehicles and other electronic circuits can cause. Its audio quality has also further been enhanced over previous Phonak earpieces, ensuring crystal-clear speech clarity that trial users have described as “perfect”.
‘With the launch of Profilo Nano we can offer covert professionals the discretion of the industry’s smallest ever earpiece form factor with the confidence that zero interference brings,’ said Evert Dijkstra, Managing Director of Phonak Communications. ‘Radio users who employ Profilo Nano can therefore rest easy knowing that they will never be spotted (at least not due to their choice of earpiece) and will never miss a command due to EMI.’
Available in beige or dark brown, the Profilo Nano covert earpiece is available with a variety of different covert wiring kits and PPTs. A wide choice of radio connectors are available (including the latest TETRA models), and a special connector is also available for Phonak’s Bluetooth (BT) module; enabling Profilo Nano to be used with BT-enabled communication terminals.
All Profilo Nano neckloops include dual quick-release safety connectors and are available in several lengths and colors.
Phonak is demonstrating the product at GPEC 2012 in Leipzig, Germany; booth (G30) from 11-13 September 2012.
