Sepura showcased its ULTRA CSM all-weather controller speaker microphone at Critical Communications World (CCW) in Barcelona. The ULTRA CSM is the first ever IP67 rated TETRA accessory offering unique performance and outstanding audio quality, according to the company.
Developed to meet the exacting needs of operatives working in the harshest and most challenging environments, such as fire fighters and miners, the accessory can operate at very high temperatures thanks to its casing made of extremely durable polycarbonate - the same material used for riot shields.
It features specific controls and key radio functions on the speaker microphone itself enabling faster access and helping deliver vital time-saving advantages specifically in emergency and hazardous situations; in addition, its ergonomic design makes it easy to use, even with gloved hands or in poor light.
John Drewnicki, product manager for Sepura, commented: “Since its official launch in October last year, the ULTRA CSM has been already deployed by a variety of sectors around the globe, including fire brigades, police forces and mining organisations. All users have been impressed with the robustness of the product, its solid feel and usability.”
Made of a material which can withstand 180 degree Celsius flash temperature, the ULTRA CSM is not only self-extinguishing, but is also enhanced by unique water-porting technology enabling it to withstand continuous heavy rain. All these features are completely unique and collectively make the ULTRA CSM a truly unique and unrivalled product on the market today.
Drewnicki concluded: “The ULTRA CSM is a world-class radio accessory. It has many advanced features without neglecting the fundamentals of easy handling and audio quality. We are particularly proud of this product also because it was developed entirely in-house by Sepura and implements outstanding levels of innovation, especially in terms of sound transmission and wet weather performance.
“At CCW this year, we are also delighted to announce the availability of the ULTRA Remote Speaker Microphone (RSM) created for users requiring a simplified interface, but who still need to enjoy all the benefits delivered by the ULTRA CSM."
