Product Description

hermes microcom provides a MOTOTRBO™ man-down option board for the MOTOTRBO™ portable radios. This is a retro-fitted option board which automatically summons assistance when the radio ‘falls-over’ or remains motionless for a predetermined period of time.

Many Situations may benefit from this important tool such as lone-worker environments or where health and safety regulations require that lone-workers have some form of “remote” supervision.
