Radio repeater enhances onboard radio communications

The first portable radio repeater in the oil industry, the FRX-1 ATEX Portable Radio Repeater fills a gap in the market for a system that provides consistent, uninterrupted radio communication. Reliable radio communications are critical to the safe and efficient delivery of well services. Unfortunately, standard radio systems are extremely vulnerable to ‘black spots.’ Typically, these are solid structures that make up the platform and block radio signals, making it impossible for the targeted receiving radio to receive the signal. The FRX-1 radio repeater effectively bends the radio signal around a solid structure so that it reaches its target destination, the receiving radio located on the other side of the structure. For the first time, two-way radio communication is truly reliable, improving productivity, and enhancing health and safety standards.
