The PTT often forms the decisive link to personnel on the ground and can be a life-saver in worse-case scenarios. Accordingly, communications equipment needs to "hold up" even under atrocious conditions and continue to function even if fire service personnel are working in extremely hazardous environments.
HR = High Resistant
With its new CT-HR PTT, CeoTronics has developed a new, rugged in-line PTT that holds up against external factors in professional fire service missions. The in-line PTT housing is made from glass fiber-reinforced, shock-resistant material. The large PTT key is fitted with an overload cut-out and is designed for superlative durability. It is supplied with two ring guards for individual configuration. The flat ring guard permits keypresses with e.g. the forearm, while the raised edge of the tall ring guard stops accidental activation in emergencies. Both variants feature bayonet connectors and are thus very easy to swap and snap securely into place. This means the CT-HR PTT can be custom configured to suit the conditions in the field.
Always the right way up
Two separate fixing brackets are available for personnel to attach the PTT onto or underneath mission clothing. Each can be rotated 360° and locked into place at a total of 16 positions. This ensures that the PTT is always at hand for the mission in question.
The new CT-HR PTT offers even more equipment features, which have been achieved through a series of tests and certifications or classifications:
IP66/67: zero dust ingression and resistant to strong water jets plus protection against immersion
Flame-resistant: to DIN EN 443
UL 94/V0: Classified as not dripping flaming particles
Color-coded plug connection: IP67
