Cassidian presents at PMRExpo 2010 (23-25 November, Cologne, Germany) the new TETRA hand portable radio THR9i.
The radio provides enhanced security for users working in situations with increased danger. The new Lifeguard feature, also known as man-down, can be activated with one key press. When a user sets Lifeguard on, the radio automatically sends a message to a predefined number, e.g. dispatcher, to raise readiness. If the radio stops moving or remains horizontal for too long, it triggers a local mandown alert. If the user does not respond, the radio automatically activates an emergency call and sends its coordinates to a predefined destination over the TETRA network.
The IP65 protection class gives the THR9i excellent resistance to dust and water, while its metallic chassis and the new front cover design protects it against shocks. The large QVGA color display presents information in a clear visual format, making it easy to capture mission critical data at a glance. The radio offers clear sound and an excellent audibility for voice calls also in noisy environments.
The GPS based "Where are you" feature shows on the radio display during a call how far and where the team members are. It is also possible to save their locations as waypoints for later use. Thanks to its enhanced memory and JavaTM support, the THR9i can receive and host applications that can be customized to meet specific needs.
THR9i radios can be managed using the smart Taqto® terminal management tool which allows several radios to be updated and re-configured simultaneously. THR9i comes with a wide range of audio accessories, a car kit with an automatic connection to an external antenna as well as two battery options. The high capacity battery offering as high as 4600 mAh performance, ensuring that the device will be ready for a long-lasting operation even under the most intensive use. This excellent battery performance is completed by an easy and reliable battery connection mechanism.
