Norway-based wireless intercom provider Axnes (Booth 3841) came to Heli-Expo 2020 this week with its newest device: a self-contained, portable PNG Mobile Base Station. With a roster of features that "many customers have requested," according to the company, the PNG Mobile Base Station is derived from Axnes' PNG BST50 base station.
The PNG Mobile Base Station features a dimmable display compatible with night vision goggles and can be operated while wearing gloves. Two models are available: the BST35 with an internal lithium-ion battery or the BST30 without the battery.
Encased in a powder-coated aluminum chassis, the mobile base station offers built-in push-to-talk capability and remote radio asset keying and can pull GPS data from connected remote transceiver handsets with map display integration. Both models come with AES 256-bit secure encryption, and users can customize the system with two groups of wireless PNG users that can be selected simultaneously or individually.
Axnes expects the new mobile base stations to be available for delivery beginning in the second quarter.
