Multitone Electronics to appear at British APCO show


Integrated communications systems specialist showcases Waterproof Pager and FireCoder Unified Communications solution

Multitone Electronics plc, a specialist developer of integrated communication systems for on-site and global use, has announced it will be appearing at the British APCO Show on 16th and 17th April 2012 at Manchester Central. On Stand H26 the company will be showcasing a number of products, including the Multitone Waterproof (WP) Pager and FireCoder Unified Comms solutions, which are designed to provide robust and reliable essential communications for the emergency services.

The Multitone WP pager is waterproof and POGSAG (Post Office Code Standardization Advisory Group) standard, with up to 4000 hours of standard battery life. Boasting simplicity, functionality and a practical design, the Multitone WP pager is inexpensive and features robust construction ensuring it will continue to function correctly in wet conditions (IP67 rated and tested in water up to 1m deep), is subjected to large quantities of dust, or gets dropped. Easily integrated into a new or existing communications infrastructure, the Multitone WP pager can be programmed with multiple profiles to suit varying groups or teams, to fit in with specific work patterns and requirements. Programming and management of the Multitone WP pager is simply achieved by linking it up to a computer via a standard USB cable which links to the pager cradle. Users and work groups are defined, standard messages can be pre-programmed and up to fourteen different tones can be specified to give an instant audible meaning to an alert.

The Multitone Firecoder has been designed to meet the requirements of emergency service stations (both for fulltime and retained crews) and is highly flexible, delivering solutions pertinent to any authority with respect to software and hardware configuration. The software is accredited to the Home Office protocol GD92 version GD92/1003A/2.2 and is “closed loop” thus ensuring secure message delivery and an audit trail. The software also supports the Home Office specification MG4 for fire-fighter alerting. In addition to system messages, the unit can deliver “unsolicited” messages to a GD92 network manager. This gives the system a degree of self-monitoring, essential for an emergency service, with remote diagnostics and configuration.

Marketing Director of Multitone, Andrew Jones, comments, “We specialise in providing reliable, tough and easy-to-use and administer communications solutions which are perfectly suited to emergency services situations. British APCO 2012 is a key event for Multitone, giving us a platform to address key people and to show how our products not only provide the best in emergency communications but also make the most of service budgets by offering excellent value for money and integration with existing systems.”

Visitors can see demonstrations of the Multitone WP Pager and FireCoder throughout the show on Stand H26.
