Switchboard and Telephones
CD-116/IP Field Switchboard
The CD-116/IP is an advanced switchboard designed for military tactical applications requiring integration of analogue and IP voice and data communications in a highly compact and fast deployable solution.
With a modular architecture, the solution provides complete system accessibility through front and rear connectors and binding posts. The Operator Terminal is integrated in the front panel and includes an alphanumeric VF display, a keyboard and the operator handset/headset audio connector.
The CD-116/IP fulfils all operational and mechanical requirements of field environment operation. Its small size and low weight, together with its inherent properties for communication readiness, makes it particularly suitable when mobility, reliability and maintainability are at stake.
BLC-201 Field Telephone
The BLC-201 Field Telephone is a rugged, lightweight and waterproof analogue telephone set designed according to military requirements and suitable for connection to manual (magneto) or automatic 2-wire switchboards, to a similar telephone or directly to the public telephone network (PSTN).
The telephone electronics concept is based on DSP technology and uses a high efficiency electronic ring generator to ensure low power consumption and long battery life; it can operate in Common Battery (CB), Common Battery Signalling (CBS) and Local Battery (LB) modes, as selected by the user. When operating in LB or CBS modes, the BLC-201 Field Telephone is powered by a pack of four ‘C’ size (IEC-LR14) Ni-MH rechargeable or alkaline battery cells. Batteries are not required in CB mode.
A slim and lightweight military standard handset with push-to-talk switch allows easy operation even by personnel wearing helmets. Silent calls are allowed with extra microphone amplification by selecting ‘whisper’ mode of operation.
