-EADS TETRA radios from available with Cyrillic characters
-THR880i Ex radio provides safe and reliable communication in explosion prone environments
24th June 2008 – EADS Defence & Security now brings the leading-edge TETRA terminal technology to the Russian market through its EADS Secure Networks integrated activity, a leading supplier of innovative radio terminals for professional use. The THR880i handheld radio and the TMR880i vehicle-mounted version are the most advanced and user friendly radio models on the market. With colour display, integrated GPS receiver, WAP and XHTML browser and Java platform as well as the unique voice feedback feature, the EADS TETRA terminals offer the users all they need for voice and data communication.
Using a radio in customer’s own language is a major advantage in mission-critical duties. Therefore, the EADS TETRA terminals are already available in more than 20 languages. The newest variant is the one with Russian language and Cyrillic character set. This means that the radio’s display texts are in Russian, and also the voice feedback is given in the same language. The unique voice feedback feature in the EADS TETRA radio models means that the radio terminal prompts many of the radio functions as they are selected, eliminating the need to look at the display when changing a talk group or switching to direct mode.
The popular THR880i handportable radio is available also as an intrinsically safe version: the THR880i Ex. Following the recent registration of the product by the Ministry of Telecom, the product will soon be available for the Russian market. THR880i Ex radio combines certification for operation in explosion prone areas with the user friendliness, solid design and advanced features of the THR880i. The THR880i Ex model has been developed in cooperation with Ecom instruments GmbH, a leading supplier of safe mobile solutions. With IP55 classification and compliant with the II 2G Ex ib IIC T4 certificate (ATEX Directive 94/9/CE), the THR880i Ex has the best protection against physical and environmental exposure, providing safe and reliable communication for the circumstances where intrinsically safe products are mandatory, such as chemical and petrochemical industries, oil and natural gas production plants, as well as pipelines and harbours.
