JRC/Alphatron Marine introduces new VHF radiotelephone
JRC/Alphatron Marine is proud to announce the introduction of our new 5-inch touch screen controlled Class A VHF radio (JHS-800S). The all-in-one unit (control unit with speaker, radiotelephone and DSC) has high sensitivity performance, crystal clear Hi-Fi audio quality via the build in speaker and protection rate of IP56.
The JHS-800S is the first Class A DSC and Inland ATIS version compatible marine VHF radiotelephone featuring a 5-inch high-brightness color LCD touchscreen, which makes it an outstanding innovative design.
The JHS-800S has standard functions that include regular transmissions and DSC (digital selective calling) for distress transmissions, however, it also has new innovative functions for playback and record radio calls in real-time and an easy-to-operate self-diagnosis function. The VHF is prepared to accept intelligent VHF block channel selection in the near future.
The remote control function allows VHF DSC calls by selecting AIS targets or channel selecting for voice communication from external equipment such as MFD. A Bluetooth® interface is integrated into the JHS-800S for connecting to an external wireless speaker mic (option), which makes it possible to talk on a location away from the JHS-800S.
The new VHF radiotelephone (JHS-800S) together with accessories complement our unified design approach and is available for at sea and on the inland waterways. The inland VHF is a special version and is available with an Automatic Transmitter Identification System (ATIS). The JHS-800S is a valuable addition to our ProLine package.
