Impres XE Remote MicSo you are probably used to seeing your local law enforcement officers wear a remote speaker mic on their shoulder. It’s identifiable, something that seems to be part of their uniform. But did you know many other industries use these devices too? Just to name a few: manufacturing, amusement, sporting and entertainment venues all take advantage of the convenience of the remote microphone. Remote mics (aka lapel or shoulder mics) can be used anywhere two-way radios are used. They move the convenience of your radio on your lapel.

You can find a remote mic for most types of commercial two-way radios. Mics vary in features with some including submersible, windporting, display screens, antennas, emergency buttons, audio jacks for earpieces, coiled or straight cords. For basic business two-way radios a remote mic may simply have a speaker, microphone, coiled cord, lapel clip, and a push to talk button.  Everything you need to have the convenience of your radio near your head, where you an both talk and listen.

Ever seem like you are constantly taking your radio off your hip to talk? Maybe a remote mic is right for you!

Public Safety Mic

We have a great deal this month for our public safety radio users. Select remote speaker mics (RSMs) are on sale. Top of the line NNTN8203 remote mic for the APX P25 radios is available in black, green or yellow. Many of our fire department customers like the high visibility green mic. The XE RSM features a strobe light that activates when the emergency button is pressed, casting light up to 10 feet in thick smoke. The RSM is rated IP68 submersible and has a unique water-draining speaker design. Here’s what Motorola says about it:

The XE RSM is the first accessory from Motorola with dual microphones that helps suppress interfering background noise. It suppresses noise so effectively, you can be heard in some of the loudest environments–over pumper trucks, crowd noise and wailing sirens. A large speaker delivers audio that is 50% louder and clearer than our existing XTS RSMs. As shown, the high-visibility, bright green XE RSM features an asymmetrical shape to help you find the controls without looking, even while wearing bulky gloves. It has a large push-to-talk button and an extra-large emergency button that are both easy to locate, but shielded so they’’re not set off accidentally when running, crawling or climbing. Easily accessible programmable buttons and a volume switch that ramps up and down make the microphone intuitive to use even in the most demanding conditions. A large d-ring and sturdy clamping clip ensure your mic stays attached to fire personnel’s turnout gear.

RMN5038 Remote MicAlso available, the Motorola RMN5038 RSM with emergency button for the XTS series of handheld radios is on sale.

Here’s what Motorola has to say about this mic: This microphone offers high/low volume control and has a 3.5mm audio jack on the microphone head. Emergency activation from the RSM is delayed until programmed Mandown Pre-alert and Post-alert delays elapse. Depending on radio model, factory defaults or previous programming could set the delay times for as long as 8 to 120 seconds.

Our radio repair center offers after-warranty repair on Motorola and other brands of radios including the XTS series radios.
