Did you know?

You can swap the THR9 Ex battery in hazardous areas

Special situations require special equipment. And when professionals are working in hazardous areas, they need capabilities only available with the Airbus THR9 Ex radio. That’s because professionals in the oil and gas, petrochemicals and steel industries, workers on rigs and in airports and harbours, and, of course, firefighters need their radios always powered up, ready to meet any needs.

You can change the THR9 Ex’s battery and accessories in areas at risk from explosive gases.

The THR9 Ex radio from Airbus is the only ATEX radio with this capability. It’s a big advantage because without it you would have to waste time moving out of the explosive area whenever you wanted to connect an accessory or replace a flat battery.

Safely change the battery and accessories



The red battery features a new locking mechanism. Easy to use while wearing gloves, the locking mechanism ensures the battery will not accidentally become detached from the radio. It also means you can use the radio without a leather case or any other added protection. What could be easier or more convenient?
