Designed to simplify the setup, management and use of intercoms, Clear-Com has launched HelixNet, which currently consists of the HelixNet Main Station (HMS-4X) and HelixNet Beltpacks (HBP-2X).
Based on the US manufacturers IV Core technology, HelixNet allows operators to connect and control multiple system connections on a single communications platform, such as a main station, portable beltpack, digital panel, wall-speaker unit or software-based client. All systems on the platform are designed to work on common, standard cabling, such as microphone cables, CAT-5 and fibre, but they can also connect into a facility on a standard LAN/IT network infrastructure thus negating the need to add new wiring.
HelixNet’s high signal-to-noise ratio provides clarity and the system is also equipped with built-in access gateways allowing inter-operation with traditional intercom systems such as Encore, RTS 2-wire or partyline and four-wire matrix wired and wireless systems. The HMS-4X main station can connect on a facility’s existing network infrastructure, forming a single communications network and allowing connectivity over greater distances. Supporting four channels and 20 beltpacks, it offers the simplicity of group communication and the high-channel capacity and flexibility of point-to-point matrix systems. Users looking to operate on a separate analogue partyline, matrix or wireless intercom system can plug into the HelixNet Main Station via two-wire or four-wire interface modules. USB connectivity allows software and firmware maintenance and upgrades, while simplified standard wire cabling helps expand the system network and scale operation more cost effectively.
The HBP-2X Beltpack features enhanced status displays and controls, such as high-contrast OLED status displays and tactile controls offering intuitive touch operation. Loaded with self-configuring and auto-update features to streamline software and firmware upgrades, the beltpacks are also designed to operate on a variety of standard cable types. They can also connect to the main station with passive Y-splitters for interconnection in different patterns and they can be daisy-chained over standard audio cable.
