Quick Talk™ RQT, an industrial-grade radio transmitter with sensor inputs and voice recording storage, automatically alerts radio-equipped personnel when monitored plant conditions change. This proven technology accepts inputs from up to 4 switches or sensors to actively monitor conditions so that when a change is detected, a pre-recorded message alerts appropriate plant personnel to that specific sensor variance. Additionally, the RWT can be used to enhance plant safety systems. When wired to button or switch, users can summon assistance for specific situations like “man down” or “maintenance needed” or “fire response required” or whatever the plant conditions necessitate. A plywood mill in Oregon recently installed a series of RQT devices and noticed an immediate improvement in emergency response times due to the specific location-information included with the alert, and the clarity of the pre-recorded messaging.
Virtually any sensor or switch input can be accommodated, allowing this unique technology to monitor conditions like an emergency button, temperature, liquid level, motion detection, vibration, power interruption, door or window ajar, glass breakage, obstructions, and many others found within traditional and renewable power plants and other types of energy related facilities.
The gasketed and sealed, polycarbonate enclosure offers built-in mounting flanges. The RQT radio can operate stand-alone on 6 AA batteries, or it can be powered externally by an optional 110V AC adaptor. The RQT is available with a 2 Watt transmitter or a 120 mWatt transmitter. Compatible with virtually every business-band 2-way radio, the Quick Talk™ can also be used with UHF radio repeaters to provide added coverage. Each sensor can be set for different frequencies to further ensure that proper personnel receive appropriate alerts (for example Input 1 – Maintenance, Input 2 – Security, Input 3 -Operations, etc.).
