The Maritime Safety Committee adopted Resolution MSC.338(91) among which, Chapter II-2 “Construction – Fire Protection, Fire Detection and Fire Extinction“ that regulates the firefighting radio equipment on board ships and vessels, on November  30th 2012. In this blog, we want to highlight some critical points mentioned in this resolution, Chapter II-m2 and more precise Regulation 10 “FireFighting”, we will also reflect on a few other points from Chapters I, II & III that influence the need for onboard fire-fighter´s communication equipment in the Regulation 10.10.4.

Submersed for 6 hours and High Temperature Tested at 520F for 5 minutes

Our Tests

Not only did we subject the the XG C-C1 to high temperature testing of 520F for over 5 minutes, but we also submersed the XG C-C1 in one foot of water for 6 hours and successfully transmitted underwater to the Delsar search and rescue probe. 

These tests show that the XG C-C1* is one of the most robust fire speaker microphones in the market AND the only dual mode RSM/PTT radio accessory tested to exceed future industry requirements.

New Hydrophobic Design - The newly redesigned microphone aperture minimizes surface tension so water is repelled from the mic aperture. 

Redesigned Headset Interface - A new high tolerance headset socket as well as high temperature silicon plugs.  The 3.5mm receive audio is also enhanced.

  • 2W speaker output
  • Upgraded circuit board
  • Improved audio output
  • New silicone plugs for higher temperatures

Rigorous testing and manufacturing processes by Savox ensure that in fire and emergency conditions you’ll still have communications with your team in the most extreme conditions.  We keep our promise to you that You’re Never Alone.

Field Testing a Savox Bone Conduction Mic, RSM and PTT

Posted by Mikael Westerlund on May 16, 2016 6:54:51 PM

We sent the Savox design team, approvals managers and sales people on a day trip to see some of the best "smoke diving" trainers in the Northern Hemisphere.  In this real simulation training exercise wearing full equipment, we wanted to ensure that our existing products meet real world challenges, and that we continue to design/manufacture products for real life situations.

Firefighters face intense scenarios every day, all while trying to save both property and lives. Firefighters and the equipment are subject to heat, smoke, water and even explosions as they work. At Savox, we work to test our products first-hand, stress testing each of our products to ensure they will last through even the harshest situations. By doing so we can continue to provide the great products and support our customers have come to expect.

C-C1 Heat Tested to 520F (271C)

Posted by Savox Marketing on May 11, 2016 12:26:56 AM

We recently attended FDIC in Indianapolis and noticed there was some chatter from one of our "friends" about heat testing a certain radio accessory up to 500F degrees. So we decided to jump into the conversation and test our own Savox C-C1. 

The Savox C-C1 remote speaker microphone (RSM) was heat-tested to 520F degrees (271) for 5 minutes and guess what happened?


NOTHING
.
It still works.
