Sepura has announced further additions to its portfolio of products with the launch of its new 344-400MHz and 800MHz TETRA radios at Critical Communications World in Singapore.
Sepura is releasing the STP9000 series of hand-portables (pictured) and the SRG3900 mobile radios in the 344-400MHz and the 800MHz bands. Sepura’s TETRA terminals have been developed in both frequency variants in order to serve customers in emerging markets, including China (344-400MHz) and North America (800Mhz) as well as to increase the opportunity for market share growth in other 800MHz markets: Asia, Australia, South America and Brazil, specifically.
The IP67-rated 344-400MHz and 800MHz STP9000 series are designed to operate in the world’s most challenging environments and their attributes comprise a new generation of highly sensitive GPS with ‘predictive ephemeris’, plus an evolved, more intuitive user interface, improved full duplex audio and battery performance, and a whole new level of robustness.
Its design retains 100% compatibility with existing STP8000 accessories and software, hence allowing re-use of existing investment and minimising the total cost of ownership. Training costs are also reduced as a result of existing user interface familiarity.
The new 344-400MHz and 800MHz bands SRG3900 is designed to meet the needs of demanding users within the transport, utility and public safety markets looking for a powerful feature-rich TETRA mobile, with flexible installation options, making it suitable for use in cars, trucks, mobile and fixed control rooms, motorcycles, aircraft and even boats and trains.
The SRG3900, with its dual remote console support for maximum flexibility in use, a powerful 10W RF power rating and full gateway and repeater functionality, keeps users connected even in the most challenging environments, the company said.
Mark Barnby, senior product manager for Sepura, commented: “The 344-400MHz and the 800MHz markets are both very important to Sepura. With the delivery of the new variants of our market-leading TETRA hand-portable, the STP9000 and the world’s best-selling and most proven TETRA gateway, the SRG3900, we are gearing up for expansion within the North American marketplace, and are also consolidating our position in Australia, China and Brazil.”
