Tarmac, the Construction and Services Company, are leaders in their industry, but committed to improving the performance of their employees. That’s why they turned to Brentwood to come up with a more efficient intercom: A system that allows a visitor to call up staff directly on their two-way portable radios from the entry gate. Employees would be aware of the visitor’s arrival, whilst flexibly carrying out other important tasks.
We developed an intercom system that constitutes a GM340 mobile radio, with attached microphone, and installed the equipment at Tarmac’s entry gate.
We housed the mobile radio and microphone in separate weatherproof boxes interconnected by a protected cable. The radio can transmit a powerful signal, via an antenna, mounted on top of the enclosure. The microphone box positioned nearby has a press-to-talk button, which enables a visitor to alert Tarmac when they have arrived. The staff can quickly acknowledge the visitor on their two-way radios whilst on the move.
We elected to use a GM340 mobile radio for this intercom system because it’s a reliable, high-quality product. It can deliver 1 to 25 watts of power and provide crisp, clear, strong audio in virtually any noisy environment. The GM340’s military-level sealing standards offer extra-protection for the radio equipment from driving rain and dust ingression. But more than that, it has also passed a stringent test that simulates 5 years of punishing use in the field. A rock-solid guarantee for years of easy-to-use, trouble-free operation.
