Hytera at the Agonas Eleftheria Sailing Race in Cyprus

CyprusArtikel drucken

A whole weekend of sailing and safety on board ships: At the end of September, Hytera Mobilfunk was a guest at the Agonas Eleftheria Sailing Race (AESR) 2018 in Limassol in Cyprus. Over the course of the event, together with Hytera's local partner in the marine industry, One Tech, Tsvetomir Benchev, Sales Manager Eastern Europe at Hytera Mobilfunk, presented the robust, versatile Hytera ATEX radios which conform to the new Solas guideline, as well as a range of accompanying accessories.

Ideal for use on ships: PD715 Ex and PD795 Ex

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has laid down the following regulations within its International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS): With immediate effect, ships are required to carry at least two intrinsically safe and explosion-proof handheld radios on board (more information in the second chapter of the SOLAS regulations).

In accordance with the regulations, ships that are registered in Europe require ATEX-certified radios (ATEX is the European directive governing the regulation use of equipment in areas where there is a risk of explosion). Hytera's two ATEX-certified handheld radios, the PD715 Ex and PD795 Ex, are ideally suited for use on ships. The extremely robust and hard-wearing devices comply not only with ATEX requirements, but also with the FM standard (required in North America) and the corresponding IEC standard, and guarantee a reliable means of communication in dangerous potentially explosive atmospheres.

With its scratch-resistant LCD display and a full keypad (for messaging), the PD795 Ex has it all. The lower cost PD715 Ex model does not feature a display and is only available to buy for analog operation (subsequent upgrade available through licenses).
