- Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Batteries
provide up to 20 hours of beltpack operation with each charge.
- Internal Antennas
are housed inside the beltpac for extra protection and durability.
- Voice Prompts
inform users of status changes and system diagnostics through the headset, such as “low battery.”

ETSI Compatibility as of January 1, 2015The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) has mandated a change in the way wireless products operate in the 2.4GHz bands. This new directive, EN 300 328 v1.8.1, requires Clear-Com to modify its HME DX-Series wireless intercom products and ship only v1.8.1 compliant products into countries that require CE compliance, beginning January 1, 2015.
What is EN 300 328 v1.8.1?
A new ETSI standard to address inteference issues within the 2.4GHz ISM band.
The main changes relate to how devices communicate and allocate radio space when they are in the same area. A new "adaptive mode" is required, which provides a mechanism so equipment can adapt to its environment by identifying other transmissions present in the 2.4GHz band.
How will this affect Clear-Com HME DX-Series products?
Clear-Com has modified its HME DX-Series wireless intercom products to be v1.8.1 compliant and created new model numbers for products sold in EU countries.
New HME DX-Series EU Model Numbers available here
Characteristics of new v1.8.1 compliant product:
How do I determine if my BP300, WH300, WH301 will work with new EU compliant base stations?
Check the G number, which is located on label under the battery, and cross reference to chart above.
- Spectrum-friendly feature will no longer be available.
- New beltpacks will be backwards compatible with older versions of the base stations.
- Older versions of beltpacks will not work with new base stations.
- Testing is more important when installing in order to determine antenna placement and coverage area, particularly when other 2.4GHz equipment is nearby.
