An intrinsically safe Bluetooth remote speaker microphone

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

Reliable communication is particularly important for lone workers in hazardous areas. To secure workers’ safety and working conditions, this company offers a wireless Bluetooth (BT) remote-speaker microphone (photo) with an operating time up to 78 h. The RSM-Ex 01 BT Z0 comes with an IP65/67 rating and a built-in noise-reduction function. It produces clear, high-volume audio up to 103 dB. The remote-speaker microphone is tough, compact and ergonomic to wear on the body. It is intuitive and easy to use, even when wearing gloves. The built-in BT Interface allows a connection to industrial BT devices, such as radios, tablets and smartphones. The speaker microphone provides additional buttons, such as a red SOS emergency button so workers can call for help quickly and easily, connecting to the company’s headquarters or directly to an emergency-operations center nearby. — ECOM Instruments GmbH, a Pepperl+Fuchs brand, Assamstadt, Gerrmany
