Intrinsically Safe Headset for Better Mobility 


   Intrinsically Safe Headset for Better Mobility 

  ASSAMSTADT, GERMANY–(Marketwired – Sep 25, 2013) – Exchange of information within the company is one central task of daily work. Especially in hazardous areas, it is important to ensure flexible and secure communications over long distances. Officially approved, lightweight headsets increase comfort and mobility.

  Additionally to the new Ex-Handy 08 and the Ex-Handy 07, ecom instruments offers an intrinsically safe headset, which comes with a number of advantages compared to standard Bluetooth models:

  Including the 1.20 m cable, the entire unit weighs only 18 grams and has no need for batteries. It is therefore more than 400 grams lighter than standard Bluetooth headsets. Anybody working long hours with this headset will appreciate the increased comfort. Offering a great range of movement, the long cable is plugged in the socket of the intrinsically safe mobile phone, which is worn on a belt. Hands are now free for working: If the "auto answer" is activated, incoming calls automatically go to the headset, avoiding the hassle of taking out the mobile phone or pushing buttons on the headset.

  The noise-reducing microphone and the inner ear speaker prevent communication problems even in extreme conditions. The headset can be used with both generic and custom-made ear cups. These serve as effective and comfortable hearing protection even at high temperatures. If several employees use the same phone, the ear cups can easily be replaced. The purchase of multiple headsets for hygiene reasons is therefore unnecessary. The ear cups are also very robust — if necessary, they can even be cleaned in the dishwasher. Unlike other hearing protections the ComCom Headset can be combined seamlessly with a variety of helmets meaning adapters are not required.
