Top Five Features for Base Station Radio from Ritron

Top Five List: Features for Base Station Radio from Ritron

The Ritron fixed location base station radio is industrial grade, high quality, and designed to be used on a desktop or other fixed location where AC power is readily available. Here are the top five features that make this radio attractive and useful for our customers.

1. It’s Wireless

Of course it is! With radio communication, you’re transmitting and receiving communication wirelessly within the VHF or UHF frequency bands. Unlike other forms of communication, adding a layer of communication to your existing radio network requires no expensive and complicated trenching.

2. AC Powered

The JBS base station radio is designed to live on a desk, or even be mounted on a forklift. Since it’s always plugged in or wired to AC power, you have no worries about batteries going dead. It’s always turned on, monitoring communication on your network.

3. Ten Channels

As you grow your radio network, your dispatch center or main office has the option to communicate directly with the various channels set up on your network. You can even use one of the channels to monitor the weather, and another channel to operate a gate or open a door.

4. Programmable Z Key

The JBS base station radio can send a signal to open a gate or a door with the push of a button. Simply wire your relay to a compatible receiver from Ritron, and you have long-range, wireless control to open and close your gate.

5. Field or PC Programmable

All radios from Ritron are programmable via PC software, or in the field via the program buttons on the circuit board. While factory standard or custom programming covers most scenarios, you may have a elements particular to your specific radio network where custom programming will come in handy. Programming is covered in the user manual

6. Bonus: Long Range!

The JBS base station is so feature-rich, we must not leave out the feature that sets this product apart, and that is its long-range capability. With radio communication, we’re not talking feet, we’re talking miles depending on physical conditions. We always encourage a site survey to determine range, and if your needs require adding a range-extending repeater, we have you covered.
