RW2 Radio Remote Set
RADIO REMOTE OPERATION AND CONTROL
The RW2 is a purpose-built pair of units for radio remote operation over field wire. This easy-to-use system assists the user by delivering clear and assured voice and radio selection services from a distant convenient location.
The RW2 can be used to set up radio communications for open-pit or underground mining applications, rapid high-site installations and general radio remote use scenarios.
The RW2 system consists of two parts:· Local Unit RIU – Radio Interface Unit: connects to the radio(s).· Remote Unit RCU – Radio Control Unit: connects to the wire at the remote site.*The RW2 system requires Field Wire line to connect the RIU to the RCU (not included).
REMOTE UNIT CAPABILITIES
The Remote Control Unit (RCU) provides the interface from which to operate the radio(s). It has a handset connection with volume control which allows normal voice operation. It also has a selector switch to select the radio & channel and mode of operation. The RCU connects to the radio Local RIU via a length of Field Wire. The RCU is powered from an external DC power source.
RADIO INTERFACE UNIT CAPABILITIES
The Radio Interface Unit (RIU) provides the interface between the Field Wire line and the Radios. It indicates the status of the power supply, radio connection(s) and the integrity of the Field Wire line. The RIU is powered from any of the connected radios.
*REMOTE TO LOCAL COMMUNICATION (Option)
Optionally, the RW2 units provide a call mechanism between the RIU and RCU units. This allows the Radio Interface Unit to be manned and receive voice calls to and from the Remote Control Unit operator. Alternatively the Radio Interface Unit operator can receive calls from various radios and route them to the Remote unit operator.
The RW2 units are fitted with internal waterproof speakers to alert operators of incoming calls or radio activity.
