Sepura enhances SC21 TETRA hand-portable

Sepura has announced two significant updates to its market leading SC21 TETRA hand portable, with the device now certified with an IP67 environmental protection rating, whilst also being made available for use in the UV band (403-470MHz).

Since its launch the SC21 has proven popular with organisations looking for a compact, robust TETRA hand-portable with outstanding audio and enhanced user functionality through data applications. Along with its sister device, the larger SC20 hand-portable with its additional high-speed data bearer, the SC2 Series of TETRA radios are firmly in position as Europe’s TETRA radio of choice, deployed by public safety organisations throughout the UK and across Europe.

Having the SC21 available in the 403-470 MHz frequency band ensures that the device will now also be available to non-Airwave user organisations in the UK as well as in many other global regions.

The IP67 environmental protection rating ensures that the SC21 device has proven to remain operational even after the harshest of working conditions. For the user, this means that Sepura’s radios last longer and more reliably, even when used in dirty and wet environments.

Combined with innovative features such as Water Porting, extended receive sensitivity and the ability to add intelligent data applications through its AppSPACE software environment, the SC21 is shown to be a leader in critical voice and data communications. 

Phil Woodley, Head of Product – TETRA Devices for Sepura commented: “The upgrades to the SC21 demonstrate Sepura’s commitment to continually enhancing our product range to answer users’ critical communication needs. The achievement of the IP67 rating confirms that a robust, innovative radio can be delivered in a compact form with no impact on audio or functionality.”
