Cassidian Introduces New Slim TETRA Radio
At this week’s TETRA World Congress (TWC. Dubai, 14-17 May 2012), Cassidian has launched its new slim line TETRA radio called TH1n, the first in a completely new class of pocket-sized TETRA radios.
Its classy, elegant design also sets it apart from conventional Professional Mobile Radios, with its metallic finish and well-formed, rubber-coated sides. At the same time, the TH1n still retains the same large, bright color display already familiar from previous Cassidian radio models.
These design elements are also expected to open up the TETRA market to new sectors, such as social workers and health care personnel who have the option of joining shared public safety networks but so far haven't found a radio model to suit their needs better than a heavy-duty radio targeted at fire fighters, for instance. Equipped with appropriate accessories, TH1n is also suitable for covert use thanks to its compact and thin design.
In addition to the new look, the TH1n is characterized by clear and loud voice quality. It is a fully featured professional tool suitable for anyone who needs the most functional and robust tools to support their work. IP65 protection guarantees reliable performance in demanding environments and 1.8 watt output power provides extra reach when network coverage is at its limit or when Direct Mode Operation (DMO) is used. The repeater feature in DMO enables teams to build a voice connection between users who might otherwise be out of reach of each other. Even with such a slim profile, the TH1n provides use times comparable with those of any other TETRA radio on the market, thanks to its innovative battery technology.
The ability to access and share data in the field is increasingly important and the TH1n also delivers in this respect, enabling field operatives to perform data queries and send reports. They can take advantage of the Java platform, which enables many types of easy-to-use applications, thanks to the possibility of custom-made application user interfaces.
