The Importance of Having the Right Accessories for your Two-Way Radio Device
In order to achieve efficient communications, Two-Way Radio accessories can be almost as important as the device itself.
They are designed to facilitate the use of the two-way radios by making them more portable, more movable, more accessible and easier to operate.
Using a two-way radio device without the right accessories can be almost impossible in some occasions, like when the two-way radio is not at hands reach, requiring push-to-talk when you don’t have your hands free, among numerous other situations.
But how and where can these accessories help?
Well, here you can find some tips and ideas on how walkie talkie accessories can improve your two-way radio use:
Carry accessories can prove to be very handy in hectic and hazardous working environments! Belt clips can make your walkie talkies easy to haul, pick up and put down, while other accessories can help you keep them intact during use and transport, like a carrying case for one or several devices.
Improving Audio Quality
In noisy and hard to communicate areas, any audio improvement is welcomed. Environments such as factories or crowded locations require something better than regular audio quality to assure clear communication.
- Noise-cancelling mics or headsets – they aid you to hear and be heard better in loud environments. Some two-way radios do include these features as standard, but if yours doesn’t, you can get it upgraded without having to swap devices.
- Earpieces – designed to keep calls private, not leaking sound through the radio.
- Remote Speaker Microphones – lightweight built and made to be worn in a reachable spot like your shoulder to give you greater freedom of movement.
- Covert equipment – for example, finger-worn push-to-talk buttons and hidden earpieces that allow you to keep your communications as discreet as possible.
Everybody knows that even if you have the most technologically advanced device, if the battery discharges quickly, you won’t be able to use it for too long, especially during long work shifts. What isn’t so clear is the range of solutions that can take care of this problem.
Choosing a higher capacity battery doesn’t always prove to be the best option in those cases when mobility is essential as they are bulkier, heavier and therefore, less portable.
The best way to avoid this issue is to opt for a battery efficient radio when you’re buying a device. Assure the battery life is enough for your regular use and that it has an included on-the-go charging solution.
Bluetooth® accessories that can be connected wirelessly can help in situations where holding a portable radio to communicate isn’t practical. If you’re on the market for a two-way radio and your work requires hands-free use, go for one that has Bluetooth® connectivity. This feature will allow for the use of a range of Bluetooth® accessories that can be wirelessly paired to your device. This way, you can communicate with your team maintaining your hands free and your eyes on the job at hand.
Intrinsically Safe (IS) Accessories
If you work in dangerous environments, you most certainly know about the importance of Intrinsically Safe certified devices. What you probably don’t know is that if you pair your IS radio with non-IS approved accessories, your system rating is void. Only IS approved accessories should be used with matching IS approved radios, with the system rating being determined by the lowest rate in the devices.
Go for matching IS ratings for any accessories your work requires and make sure your IS radio system has the appropriate level of protection.
If you are not sure about all these ratings and terms, we have the solution for you.
