- Triple diversity design
transmitsthe audio signal twice, at different times and frequencies, and selects the strongest signal from two different antennas for uninterrupted communication.
- Flexible power options
enable the MB300 Base Station to operate on 100-240 VAC, 12-14 VDC, 1.5V “AA” batteries or an optional rechargeable BAT850 battery.
- Simple system expansion
with a standard data cable enables connection of multiple MB300 Base Stations to accommodate expanding production crew requirements.
- Auxiliary Input and Output
ten-pin terminal strip connector for easy connection to four-wire intercom systems. External interface required to connect into two-wire systems.
- Dedicated channel relays
Each channel has a dedicated relay. Remote users can activate either one or both simultaneously.
- Fast, easy set-up for strategic relocation
Highly portable and very quick to set up and operate.
- Compatible configuration
Easily configured to operate with almost any base radio or four-wire intercom. Available with any combination of COMMUNICATOR®s: BP300 Beltpack or the WH300 All-in-One Wireless Headset.
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
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.
Characteristics of new v1.8.1 compliant product:
- 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.
