ANI desktop decoder uses DSP technology
Cimarron Technologies’ C Plus is an automatic numerical identification desktop decoder. The decoders incorporate DSP processing technology, which can enhance performance in areas with weak and distorted signals. They are user-programmable for MDC-1200, GE-STAR or FleetSync formats. The units will include two-way MDC-1200 and GE-STAR capability, a 4,000-ID database for its 27-character alphanumeric display, AGC for hassle-free installation and serial, IR and USB interface. The decoders incorporate Flash programming technology to allow upgrades and custom features to be added in the field. The C Plus will be available in a computer/console interface model, single window display model, multiwindow display model and a multichannel model.
Mapping software enhanced
Version 2.0 of Street Smarts Mapping Software produced by Pyramid Communications is a street-level mapping program to be used in conjunction with the company’s Merlin AVL fleet tracker. Version 2.0 enhancements include geofencing, which gives the dispatcher the ability to be automatically alerted when a vehicle arrives or leaves a predefined area. It also includes an over-the-air speed limit alert with improved reporting capabilities.
Boxes offer 200A power protection
The Pop Box model AA1220061 from Intersect is for power outage protection. The box integrates a transfer switch, load center and surge protection into a sleek configuration. The panel is designed for 200A, 120/240 single-phase (three-wire) applications. The unit deploys an ASCO-manufactured transfer switch that connects to primary and secondary electrical supplies and automatically switches between the connections based on the active feed source. The transfer switch is UL 1008-listed.
Charger keeps batteries at peak
Advance Tec’s negative pulse reconditioning charger/Pulse analyzer functions as a rapid negative pulse reconditioning charger, and with the push of a button, becomes a Pulse analyzer conditioner. The unit charges and reconditions two-way radio batteries daily, keeping the battery at peak condition, extending the life of the battery by as much as three times. When functioning as a negative pulse reconditioning charger, it uses inflection point cut-off as its primary termination method, terminating the charge as soon as the battery reaches capacity.
Interface extends control over IP
JPS Communications’ ETS-1 network interface is for the ACU-1000 wide-area interoperability systems. It extends control, voice and data of JPS’ interoperability products over Internet protocol networks. This ethernet-to serial interface gives the ACU-1000 an IP address so it can be controlled over a digital network. A voice channel in the interface using VoIP allows remote audio interface to the interoperability system via the network. The interface uses a high-speed digital signal processing and a network processor to multiplex audio and control information over a single Ethernet connection. With connective equipment, the unit will link to LAN, WAN or the Internet.
Grounding system uses nearly neutral backfill
Lyncole XIT’s electrolytic grounding systems consist of a hollow copper pipe filled with natural earth salts. The salts extract moisture from the air, which forms a conductive electrolytic solution. The solution continually weeps into the surrounding backfill material. The electrode is installed in an augured hole or trench and backfilled with Lynconite II. Based on a specially processed bentonite clay, this backfill has nearly a neutral pH, which protects the electrode from corrosion.
Base station uses space efficiently
The 2601 series digital repeater/base station from EF Johnson offers dual-mode operation and meets the requirements of Project 25 digital operation and TIA 603 analog operation. A five-channel repeater, combiner, duplexer and multicoupler can fit in one eight-foot standard rack.
