recently received an interesting call from a large
warehouse operator. He had a wired PA system with over
100 microphones throughout the warehouse. The system
worked fairly well except in communicating with
materials handling vehicles. Drivers often had trouble
hearing the calls and were limited in their ability to
acknowledge calls. This created both an operational and
OSHA safety compliance issue. Our caller wanted to know
if there was a way to connect radios to the PA system.
The answer is YES, it's called the LogiCall System. The picture at the left says it all. All that is required is the installation of an interface to the PA system. That's it in the center of the picture. It's called an LPA. Functionally, it contains a radio receiver, recorder/playback module, a delay timer, and a radio transmitter. Three versions are available - an unlicensed VHF model, a VHF model for use with licensed 2-way radio systems and a similar model for UHF licensed operation. Add radios on your forklifts and/or tow motors, add some portables for supervisory personnel and desktop wireless intercoms at the receptionist desk and watch what happens!
