TC-700EX PLUS Intrinsically Safe Two-Way Radio
Intrinsically safe – Radios for use in the potentially explosive environments of oil and gas installations, such as tankers or drilling platforms, or in gas-laden atmospheres encountered by the emergency services must be designed and constructed
to be totally safe. HYT’s ATEX-approved professional portable radios give team members instant access to one or many colleagues at the touch of a button, without compromising safety, and allow constant contact should a critical situation need resolving.

Encapsulation (Casting Compound). Prevents the ignition of the surrounding explosive atmosphere.
A rechargeable 1700mAh Li-Ion Ex-battery provides up to 14 hours of use, more than enough for a standard work shift.
The intrinsically safe TC-700 are supported by a range of ATEX-approved audio accessories including, remote speaker microphone and earpieces tailored to the requirements of today’s radio users.
If programmed, press the highly visible Emergency button to initiate the defined emergency communications procedure. Providing even greater safety for employees in hazardous environments, the TC-700 EX PLUS provides an optional man down feature. This feature automatically summons assistance when the radio falls over for a predetermined time period. Additional safety features include a specially designed structure that prevents the battery and radio unit from accidental separation.
This optional feature provides added security and safety for individuals who work remotely from their team. Should a user not respond to a regular warning tone then is activated. Additionally when feature is enabled, a defined emergency procedure is activated if the radio is horizontally or inversely positioned for a certain length of time.
Powerful Audio Output
HYT’s voice compander audio enhancement and a powerful 40mm 1W speaker ensure superb clear, crisp sound, even in noisy environments.
The Whisper feature means that even the quietest message can be transmitted and understood. This is an essential feature for environments where discreet communication is necessary.
HDC2400TM and HDC1200 Signaling
HYT HDC2400TM signaling system allows features including Identification, Calling Timer, Voice Storage, Retrieve Record, Individual Call, Group Call, Broadcast, Stun/Kill & Revive, Status Inquiry, Short Message and Data Transmission. (Some are features of dispatch center.) Compatible with MDC1200, the HDC1200 Signaling allows functions including PTT ID Encode, Emergency Encode, Radio Check Decode, Stun/Kill & Revive, Individual Call, Group Call, Broadcast, etc.
The scrambler feature provides enhanced security for your important public safety and private security communications.
The feature enables radio to report the current channel number when power on or switching channel, offering you notable convenience.
Power on Self-Test
The radio itself checks radio status automatically when power on, and emits alert if an error occurs (e.g. CPU error or EEPROM error), allows the user to early detect unit faults.
Battery Power Indicator
Upon press the function key, the radio sounds”1″, “2”, “3”, or “4” to indicate the current battery level of very low, low, satisfactory, or high respectively.
2-Tone/5-Tone Encode & Decode (Signaling system is radio dependent. 5-Tone models and 2-Tone models are available.)

ATEX (Atmospheres Explosibles) Directive 94/9/EC
Introduced in 2003, this is the European Union directive to which all two-way radios must conform if used in potentially explosive environments. It replaces the Cenelec classification in all European Union member states and EFTA countries. All HYT professional series ATEX portable radios are approved to ATEX Protection Class II 2 G EEx ib IIB T3 as interpreted in the following table:Note: Table available on brochure.

I.S. Class I, II, III, Division 1, Group C,D,E,F,G, T3C
Intrinsically Safe Classification
“Intrinsically Safe” is a fire safety rating given to the equipment by the Factory Mutual Research Corporation. When equipment is given this rating, it is considered safe to use the equipment in certain flammable or combustible atmospheres. Flammable atmospheres have been categorized by Class, Division, and Group as described below:
Gases, Vapors, Liquid
An area where there is or could be an explosive atmosphere most of the time in normal operations.
An area where an explosive atmosphere exists only as a result of a fault (something going wrong).
Classification of Atmospheres:
Ethylene, ethyl ether, cyclopropane
Gasoline, naphtha, butane, propane, alcohol, acetone, benzol, natural gas
Metal dust including aluminum, magnesium, and their alloys
