JSP’s Sonis Comms boosts productivity on site
25 May 2022
ON HAZARDOUS sites with harmful noise levels, the requirement for adequate hearing protection can be at odds with the need for effective communication. Sonis® Comms innovative new technology is changing the way teams communicate on site whilst providing the necessary hearing protection.
The embedded DMC® technology enables teams of up to 15 people to communicate and move around freely in remote locations without internet or mobile network coverage. Developed for high- performance protection, Sonis® Comms offers SNR levels of 34dB (Headband) and 30dB (Mounted).
The full duplex system allows users to speak without waiting for other transmissions to end and prevents communications being cut off. Dynamic and self-healing network maintains group connection as users leave and re-enter range. Sub-group connections are established automatically when intercom groups split into smaller teams.
Active hearing protection offers the ideal solution for applications with noise hazards that require effective communication and situational awareness. Level-dependent attenuation protects against harmful noise while amplifying safe sounds, such as speech and warning signals, ensuring users are not isolated from their environment.
Designed as a modular system, Sonis® Comms encapsulated cups provide high passive attenuation with clip-in DMC® Control Pack powered by Cardo to connect electronic functions. Easy maintenance and a wide range of user-replaceable spares extend product life for improved sustainability.
Sonis® Comms headsets are user-friendly and intuitive to operate via ergonomic buttons on the earcups, hands-free technology, desktop configuration tool, and JSP Comms mobile app. Built-in ‘Hey Sonis’ voice activation tool and voice recognition microphone allow users to speak and adjust settings using voice controls. Sonis® Comms with Bluetooth® wireless technology connects to a smartphone for integrated entertainment audio and mobile calling.
Highly commended for the BSIF innovation award, Sonis® Comms is designed to be compatible with other items of JSP PPE. The Sonis® Comms Mounted ear defenders are designed, tested and approved for use with JSP EVO® helmets, offering certified compatible combined protection.
