Repeaters Beneficial in Many Applications
This week we cover the various applications where a repeater (also known as a range extender) solves real communications problems. As a review, a repeater extends the reach between two or more radios. Do you see any use cases below that may be beneficial to your customers?
- The staff at The Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts, a 151,000 square foot concert hall in Carmel, Indiana, had safety concerns when radio communications degraded for those transmitting from the basement level mechanical rooms to the administrative staff in other parts of the building. Reliable two-way communications are paramount across this campus to ensure safety. That’s when they decided a Ritron repeater with an omni-directional high-gain antenna installed high in the dome of the building was the solution. Now, staff in the concert hall building (even in the basement) have consistent, reliable communication with others around the campus as well as to the staff in the administrative offices across the street.
- Medco, (now Express Scripts) built a 340,000 square foot distribution facility and called in Dennis Sieracki, National Sales Manager for Ritron, to help with a site survey to determine what type of radio equipment would be needed. Dennis describes the resulting repeater setup as “a shower of sun rays” to cover the radio communications needs of the organization.
- Summer camps are using Ritron repeaters to extend the range of their radio communications. In combination with a LoudMouth speaker, announcements may be made to various sections of the camp. This requires no trenching, and no wires.
- A Ritron dealer partner in the Long Island, New York area (AC RadioCom) is supplying the high rise construction industry with repeaters. This cost-effective solution helps to cover the construction site communications needs from top to bottom.
A critical component in all of the cases above is the proper type and placement of the antenna. As a dealer, rest assured you have the support of our account management team as well as our engineering staff to ensure your customer needs are met. What additional use cases have you experienced?
