Remote Speaker Microphone

This BT RSM is specifically designed for use in Mission Critical environments, where a dependable secure Bluetooth connection is a must. Maximum flexibility is provided through additional programmable buttons and both earpiece and headset connectivity. The BT RSM is ready for any scenario.

Engineered to specifically meet stringent Home Office ESN requirements, it replicates familiar TETRA controls for ease of user adoption. As well as UK HO ESN readiness, Sonic’s BT RSM can be programmed to meet the interface requirements of most PTT over Cellular (PoC) applications.

A single rotary Volume/Talk Group select knob provides immediate control, whilst the EMERGENCY button is easy to find when the need arises.

Fully waterproofed to IP67 standard the Sonic BT RSM is designed to take the operational punishment expected in front line services, allowing smart devices to stay protected in pocket or pouch. A wide selection of earpieces and headset options as well as remote PTT units make for maximum flexibility and deployment in multiple roles.

Calibrated microphone sensitivity and class-AB power amplifier make the Sonic BT RSM operationally effective in any environment.

Programmable Function Buttons add role specific controls from Whisper Mode, RTS and ANS/REJECT and END of VoLTE calls.

The unit is also available as a wired USB version for those not requiring Bluetooth wireless connectivity.

Sonic’s ESN External Equipment Interface (ESN EEI) is a NATS approved partner application to the RSMs, adding functionality to the Programmable Function Buttons as well as providing an LED blackout option (Dark Mode), useful interface and battery status information.

The transmission of pre-selected Operational Status Messages (OSM) and the ability to ANS/END or REJECT an incoming VoIP or Secure Full Duplex call from a single button press render the RSM and EEI combination an essential tool in operational communications.
