Clear-Com®, a global leader in critical voice communication systems, has appointed Ships Electronic Services Ltd (SES) as its sole UK distributor in the offshore maritime market. The leading communication and navigation electronics distributor for the marine industry will offer Clear-Com’s wireless and wired professional intercom products to the commercial shipping sector, as well as the growing oil and gas market.
The environment typically found in maritime applications, along with the steel construction of the ship, causes multi-path signal- and frequency-interference issues for wireless intercoms. Clear-Com wireless and wireless intercom products provides reliable and safe communications between the deck and bridge areas of the ships, helping staff members complete tasks that run the gamut from standard oil rigging to environmental cleanup.
The unique design of Clear-Com’s wireless intercom technologies, such as FreeSpeak and Tempest wireless intercom systems, enables them to operate interference-free, which is essential for ensuring efficiency and safety aboard large vessels. Those using the devices are free to roam around the ship without fear of audio fading or losing communication. Clear-Com wired intercom solutions, such as Encore partyline and Eclipse matrix, are typically used in control rooms and other under deck ship positions, so that the captain and key staff members, can access highly-reliable, quality audio at all times.
“Adding Clear-Com to our group of available products allows us to offer a wide range of maritime communication solutions for all requirements and budgets,” says Simon Wood, Director of SES. “Clear-Com’s products are sought after as premier professional intercom solutions worldwide, and we are pleased to offer its market-proven technologies to our customers in the maritime sector.”
“SES’s reputation as the leading provider of maritime communication and navigation electronics solutions precedes it,” says Dan Muchmore, Clear-Com Regional Sales Manager for the UK and Ireland. “With its extensive customer base, SES brings an unparalleled opportunity for Clear-Com to gain exposure throughout the maritime sector, introducing its products to shipping professionals.”
Note: CellCom® and FreeSpeak® are different brands representing the same digital wireless intercom system (with minor technical differences). Due to trademark limitations, CellCom and CellCom Integra (formerly CellCom50) are only available in the U.S. and Canada; and FreeSpeak and FreeSpeak Integra (formerly FreeSpeak50) are available in all countries other than the U.S. and Canada.
