Midians Electronics has introduced the TRC-1 tone remote controller, which lets dispatchers control a remote base station or repeater using the standard EIA tone format over a dedicated phone line, microwave path, or telemetry link. It also lets dispatchers talk to other parallel tone remotes on the same system via an intercom feature, the company said.

The product, which is targeted to the public-safety, fleet management, industrial and commercial sectors, offers optional gooseneck, desktop or handset microphones to go with the standard internal microphone. A built-in keypad lets dispatchers select up to 15 functions or frequencies and perform DTMF dialing.
