Bluetooth® technology is changing the way workers communicate in high noise industrial environments. From IS smart phones to IS Bluetooth® enabled Two-way radios, there are more communication options available to industrial companies who have environments where IS certified devices are required.
Sensear has worked with a number of leading Oil and Gas companies to deliver Wireless Bluetooth® Two-way Radio communication solutions. These customized solutions solved challenging communication problems. This case study covers a customized double protection application.
For years this customer had a problem communicating in noise environments up to 115DB. This involved using products that required communication ear buds under passive muffs, so that the workers could hear radio traffi c and still meet requirements for double hearing protection. Their existing solution involved several cables from the ears to a control unit, another cable from the boom mic on the passive headset, and a control box the user was required to wear with yet another cable to connect to the user’s two-way radio.
