How Two-Way Radios Benefit Your Workplace
Manufacturing Plants & Warehouses
Manufacturing Plants & Warehouses are one of our biggest customers when it comes to two-way radios. Some of the top priorities for this type of customer is SAFETY, SECURITY and the Bottom Line (saving money).
Two-Way radios increase Safety & Security in many ways:
- Instant communications with employees
- Filter Loud Background Noise when talking on radios
- Quick response to emergency situations
- Ability to have different channles (supervisor, all call, emergency)
- Durable, Rugged, Submersible, Military spec radios
- Digital Two-Way Radio Technonolgy (clear, penetrating)
- Call Boxes (place in entry areas)
- Wireless "Loud Mouth" Loud Speakers
- Two-Way radio accessories for hands free use
- No air-time costs or minutes like cell phones or Nextel
There are various ways that manufacturing plants and warehouses use two way radios. In the example above, this customer is using our Digital Hytera Repeater RD-982 along with our Digital Hytera Portable radios (PD-782 & PD-702). This customer is a manufacturing plant. They have large delivery trucks coming in and out of the facility. They manufacture goods inside the plant. The plant is very loud in certain areas. When they first called us they were using Nextel and Cell Phones to communicate. The Plant Supervisor found us on Google and gave us a call. They also have a warehouse down the street where they store some of their manufactured products. The biggest problem with the cell phones and Nextel was that: •The Phones were constantly breaking •The batteries were discharging •The contracts were confusing and always changing •Signal loss and dropped calls was constant •They could not hear or communicate near the loud machines •The phones were just not reliable We met with the customer the following week. We did a site survey and tested our radios throughout the plant. We noticed that in a few areas, no radio signals were getting through. The area was constructed with dense concrete and lots of sheet metal. Other than that area, the Digital radios worked great. They were very impressed when we compared our Digital Radio to their current cell phones. The difference was clear. Our Digital radios filtered 90% more noise than any of their phones. We recommended installing the Digital Hytera Repeater that “Boosts” the digital radio signal throughout the plant. The customer purchased about 200 digital portable radios along with about 10 Mobile radios for their forklifts (see forklift example). They also liked and purchased several call boxes for their entry ways and for remote places like the parking lots and gates. To increase safety, they also purchased the Ritron “Loud Mouth” wireless loud speaker system for emergency announcements. While we were there we had a chance to speak with the owner of the Logistics company that helped with transporting goods to the big box stores. They too were using cell phones to communicate around the Dallas/ Ft. Worth Area. We were able to sign them up to our own Area Wide Digital Radio System.
Forklifts are an essential part of manufacturing plants and warehouses. One thing plant and warehouse supervisors know is the danger in a heavy moving vehicle. Horn and lights are usually installed for safety. Installing a two-way radio increases safety even more. The operator is able to instantly talk to other forklift drivers, the loading dock, other employees, and even with the truck driver. Increasing safety is always a plus.
