New Products Announced at APCO Conference
Friday, August 09, 2019 | Comments

Several companies released new products at the 2019 Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International annual conference and exhibition in Baltimore.

Motorola Solutions announced it radio site video service, using Avigilon cameras, is designed to secure remote sites from theft, vandalism or environmental impact such as high-water levels. The service will allow site owners and operators to record activities in and around a site. The offering will include hardware, software and services and is expected to be available by the end of 2019.

In addition, the KVL 5000 key variable loader enables agencies to secure communications on ASTRO 25 Project 25 (P25) networks. The device was built based on direct input from public-safety professionals. It is easy to use and designed to be held with one hand. The unit has an intuitive touch-screen interface that allows users to quickly and securely generate, transport and load encryption keys into communications products.

Telewave introduced a new VHF wideband in-building distributed antenna system (iDAS) duplexer for more coverage and capacity in critical areas such as tall office buildings, tunnels, large buildings made of reinforced steel or concrete, parking garages, stadiums, airports, shopping malls, and secluded, rural or hilly areas. The product benefits property managers and first responders who require support for VHF and UHF in-building communications and provides maximum isolation in a small form factor, ideal for installations with minimum space restrictions. The product can work with multiple carriers, requiring minimal carrier involvement for fast deployment at low implementation cost. The duplexer offers effective filtering for the donor subsystem and server side of the VHF bidirectional amplifier (BDA). The duplexer mounts in a standard 19-inch rack on front or center cabinet rails.

Sinclair Technologies, a division of Norsat International, launched the INTELLITUNE series of auto-tunable combiners that are automated in detecting and tuning transmitter frequencies in the field dynamically to enable flexible wireless applications. The combiner features an integrated control unit for fully autonomous frequency tuning to keep return loss to a minimum and constantly optimize overall performance. The product has a high unloaded quality factor, wide tuning range, high linearity, high-power handling, low weight, compact dimension, and outstanding reliability. The user-friendly web-based graphical user interface (GUI) facilitates easy on-site configuration and remote access. The first models to be released in this series cover 350 – 512 MHz and are available in two- or four-channel base configurations. They are easily expandable to up to 32 channels by adding multiples of two-channel slave units. The compact cavity filters allow the two-channel module to easily fit into a standard 4U high, 19-inch rack. The products will ship in the fourth quarter.
