L3Harris Radios Now Compatible with Firefighter SCBAs from MSA
Wednesday, August 07, 2019 | Comments

L3Harris Technologies’ XL line of portable radios are now compatible with the G1 self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) designed and manufactured by MSA, improving communications for firefighters in volatile conditions.

With a software update, the L3Harris XL-200P and XL-185P radios can use Bluetooth technology to route audio to and from SCBA units. The radios also feature a rugged construction and advanced audio capabilities to enhance performance for all users.

"Firefighters work in extremely challenging environments, and it is critical for them to be heard clearly,” said Ryan Carson, director, product line management and strategy, L3Harris Public Safety and Professional Communications. “L3Harris has worked closely with our partners at MSA to enhance audio clarity on the fire ground.”

Last year, the same radios were integrated with SCBA equipment from 3M Scott Fire and Safety.
