Manufacturing

Manufacturing contributes £6.7 trillion to the global economy and within the UK this industry sector directly employs 2.6 million people.


Roadphone NRB aims to allow staff to work more efficiently and safely than ever before. Manufacturing is facing new challenges in keeping costs low and output high, in a world where more companies are outsourcing overseas, and in the online space consumers expect instant gratification and faster delivery times. Roadphone NRB offers solutions for many different sizes of factories; whether you have a single site with around 20 employees or need a solution to cover multiple sites across the UK; all linked by one communications system.

A digital radio system provides dedicated communications allowing workers to connect. Digital radios give you the flexibility on the manufacturing floor to quickly and effectively re-task workers. If you already have an analogue radio system for your factory, digital radios could improve your coverage, audio clarity and worker safety. This allows you to reduce the amount of downtime on the factory floor and using work ticketing you can quickly and easily task workers to the jobs that need sorting.

Motorola Solutions & Hytera offer a number of radios that are built tough, so it doesn’t matter if your factory deals with high levels or dust and moisture as you can have the peace of mind that your equipment will keep working. Meeting the most demanding specifications, including IP57 for submergibility in water and U.S. Military 810 C, D, E and F. Modern Li-Po technology allows your radios to function all day without needed a charge meaning less disruption on the factory floor.

What’s more, functionality such as Lone Worker, where a handset encourages a prompt from the user and then raises an alarm in the control room, can compliment your safety procedures if users are required to work in high-risk environments alone.

By using digital radios you gain the benefits of digital audio processing, background noise suppression and Intelligent Audio features, helping ensure communication comes through loud and intelligible. Intelligent Audio automatically adjusts the radio volume up when you are in noisy environments allowing your co-workers to hear you better. Then when you’re back into a quiet room your radio will automatically adjust to ensure your radio’s volume isn’t too loud.

Licencing

Placeholder Picture

Two-way radios can be broken down into two main areas - Licensed Radio & Unlicensed PMR446 Radio . Both of these types of radio operate in essentially the same way, but the output power of the radios, coverage area and number of other users on the channel varies.

So, what’s the difference between Licensed and Unlicensed? Unlicensed radios operate on PMR446 frequencies, and are limited by law to 0.5W of output power, that’s only 1/10th of the output of a licenced handheld radio. This limits the range of the radios, which, like any other radio, can vary greatly depending on the terrain and number of buildings in the area. License-free frequencies are common across most of Europe, which makes them ideal for use in both the UK and when oversees.

Licensed radios have a maximum output power of 5W for handportables, and 25W for vehicle mobile units. The increased power helps with increasing coverage, and as licensed spectrum is controlled by the local licensing authority (OFCOM in the UK), the chances of encountering other users or interference on your frequency are reduced. You need to pay for licensed frequencies, and the cost varies depending on what your requirements are, how congested the spectrum is, and where you are located. Contact us, and we’ll advise you on the best approach to take.

Frequency (UHF & VHF)

UHF (ultra-high frequency) and VHF (very high frequency) are both bands of frequency spectrum which can be used to make two-way radios communicate. Your decision will depend on a variety of factors; what frequency spectrum is available, have you got existing radios you’d like to integrate with, and which option will provide the best coverage and performance for your needs.

Most of the leading radios from Motorola Solutions and Hytera are available in both UHF and VHF, and your trusted advisor at Roadphone NRB will advise you on what’s best for you.
