Radio solutions for the energy industry

Radio communications for demanding industries

Energy companies operate in some of the world’s most challenging environments, both onshore and offshore. Any disruption to production or distribution costs money. Problems must be corrected quickly and efficiently.

Everyday operation as well as problem situations require efficient communications. Radio communication solutions from Airbus Defence and Space are the answer.

Professionals need to exchange information in groups: they need group communication over radio. They need to be able to speak and everyone to hear at once. In addition to voice, they need fast data, too.

The Claricor system and TETRA system are radio communication solutions by Airbus Defence and Space. They adjust smoothly to different organizations.

Why choose TETRA?

What’s the future of TETRA? How near is mission-critical LTE anyway? Should you wait for the promised LTE solutions? After all, there is no mission-critical broadband solution available in the market today.

Intrinsically safe.

TETRA radios from Airbus DS meet the toughest demands. They are easy to use and they have an excellent track record in this industry. The Ex-tremely safe THR9 Ex ATEX radio is a great choice for demanding environments.

Did you know?

Did you know that you can change the THR9 Ex’s battery and accessories also in areas at risk from explosive gases? This is the only ATEX TETRA radio with this ability. Without it, you would have to move out of the explosive area whenever you wanted to connect an accessory or replace a flat battery.

Or use the THR9 Ex in the dark

The THR9 Ex also has Night Vision as a standard feature. Night Vision makes it easier to use the radio in the dark.
