In-building wireless technology provider Advanced RF Technologies (ADRF) has announced the commercial availability of a new public safety repeater for first responder communication in small to mid-sized buildings.
The company noted that its new PSR-78-8527 0.5W Public Safety 700/800 MHz digital repeater is “ideal” for improving first responder radio communication in small to mid-sized buildings due to its compact form factor and lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
ADRF’s new public safety repeater supports all 700 and 800 MHz public safety frequency bands, including FirstNet (Band 14) and complies with the latest IFC and NFPA code requirements. Its digital signal processing (DSP) filters help eliminate adjacent channel interference to allow band selectivity, the company said, and the product supports up to two non-contiguous wideband filters for both 700 MHz and 800MHz public safety frequencies via ADRF’s intuitive web-based graphical user interface, providing complete control to the user from a remote location.
“There was significant demand from current and prospective clients looking for a lower power repeater that supports public safety communication for their small to mid-sized buildings,” said Dennis Burns, director of public safety at ADRF. “The 0.5W repeater not only satisfies this need, but rounds out our support of all North American public safety frequency bands and various output powers for buildings of all sizes.”
The new repeater features an alarm output feature to supervised circuits for: antenna, amplifier, AC or DC power supply, battery, and charger failure and also supports FCC Part 90 Class B wideband repeater designations
The new offering also features a full range of passband filter options from 3 MHz to 18 MHz.
