Drake introduces mobile digital wireless intercom

Drake Electronics has unveiled FreeSpeak, a license free, fully-integrated, digital wireless intercom.

FreeSpeak allows each beltpack to detect, and automatically select, the cleanest connection.

It features an unlimited number of cells allowing users to freely roam between cells and systems without changing frequency channels. There is no frequency management required and no base-station is required.

Other features include:

  • Full duplex 7KHZ commentator bandwidth

  • Dynamic port allocation technology

  • Digitally encoded to keep calls private

  • Can be used as a presenter’s or performer’s earpiece system

  • Typically 10 hours talktime, using rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) cells - also accepts disposable alkaline AA batteries
