About the Polycon Product
The Polycon wireless intercom system is a well-established product that was developed in close cooperation with professional Search and Rescue (SAR) teams. This one-of-a-kind communication system fully integrates the external operating crew into an aircraft intercom system and provides increased situational awareness and constant un-interrupted communication between crewmembers, which is critical to mission execution. The Polycon system has become standard equipment in SAR helicopters produced by several helicopter manufacturers. To date, over 700 Polycon systems have been delivered worldwide.
- Wireless Intercom Extension for all types of aircraft
- Waterproof design
- Extended Long Range
- Effective Noise Canceling technology
- Hands Free operation
- Compact Base Station & hand-held Transceivers
The Polycon system provides semi-duplex communication, on 16 optional channels (409 - 419 MHz, UHF). Additionally, the system provides two operational modes, PTT operation or 'No Interrupt' Voice X-mission (NIVOX) activation and allows for transmit output power adjustment up to 0.5 watts.
