The Y2000 Vehicle Intercom System lets first responders talk to each other clearly while in transit to an incident because the system’s noise-canceling electric microphone and noise-attenuating headsets combine to make the high background noise created by engines and sirens a non-issue. Headband and neckband headset models are available. The headsets offer a beveled cup design to fit under fire helmets and sidetone capability for increased clarity when transmitting. The standard system accommodates six headsets but can be expanded to accommodate 10 headsets. Metal housings, military-standard plugs and jacks, an EMI/RFI shielded cable assemblies are standard.
A fully adjustable, in-vehicle laptop mounting system offers vertical fine-tuning via the company’s patent-pending Tele-Pole, which lets users adjust either the swing arms or telescoping pedestal via a single knob. In addition, a patented no-slip rubber ball and socket isolates shock and vibration to extend laptop life. It also enables the user to find the perfect screen-viewing angle, regardless whether the laptop is used from the passenger or driver side, the company said. Solutions are available for Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, GMC, Ford and Jeep vehicles. The no-drill bases use existing hardware, and the tray is spring loaded.
