This unit provides organisations with added reassurance by automatically switching from mains to battery dependant in the event of a power faliure/outage. The batteries, which can provide up to 14 hours back up for the mains base station, will automatically recharge and the unit will switch back to AC operation when the mains supply is restored.
This new version of Icom’s marine base station is very practical and easy to use. It will provide extra reassurance for organisations such as marinas, ports, yacht clubs that require reliable communications with vessels from the shore. The battery-powered unit could also be ideal for temporary base station use, disaster or emergency use where mains power may not be available.
