Clear-Com releases HelixNet Digital beltpack
Clear-Com has announced that it is shipping its updated HelixNet beltpack (HXII-BP-X4) for its HelixNet digital partyline intercom systems.
Newly designed and lighter in weight (by 33%), the HXII-BP-X4 wired beltpack uses Power-over-Ethernet to deliver up to 24 configurable digital intercom channels – allowing users to access any two of the channels on the system at once.
The beltpack operates over a single microphone cable for digital powerline or a single PoE cable. It offers one set of Talk and Call buttons for each of the two intercom channels, and up/down arrow buttons for program audio level adjustment.
It features a tough molded polycarbonate case that is 13% smaller than the previous model. 3-pin XLR and RJ-45 Ethercon intercom connectors feature on the bottom panel for connection to the intercom station. For intercom headsets, a four-pin XLR connector is provided, with a 5-pin XLR connector being available if required.
A micro-USB connector is supplied to update firmware in the beltpack. This can also be achieved automatically when the HXII-BP-X4 is connected to a HelixNet Main Station running a newer firmware version.
