How it Works

Intercom in Waterproof Beltpack
Intercom Integrated into Headset
Typical Wiring Installation

Simple as 1,2,3;

  1. Each user has an Intercom unit either built into their headset or in the form of a beltpack and headset.
  2. Users plug into the 'wire' (cable) via one of any number of User ports located around the vessel or vehicle.
  3. Users can talk clearly, handsfree (no button pressing) even in high noise and windy locations.

Option. Radio Gateway.

Radio interface. Connects up to three two-way radios. Incoming traffic is heard on all headsets. Push-to-talk buttons on each Intercom allow a user to transmit via the radio network.

Active Speech Processing (ASP)

ASP Active Speech Processing is a circuit developed by Wildtalk Ltd to enable virtually any headset to be used in demanding environments.
  • ASP automatically mutes the Mic when the user is not talking, this silences background noise making the system quieter and pleasant to use.
  • ASP dynamically adjusts the Mic and intercom performance to match ambient sound levels for clear speech to over 110dB.
  • ASP compresses high level sounds to prevent distortion and keep speech clear and intelligible.

Multi Port Line (MPL)

Wire uses a Multi Port Line (MPL) for simple installation and simple cabling.
  • Multi port line (MPL) is a single cable with as many headset ports (sockets) along its length that you require.
  • The cable can be linear, star, loop or drop wired.
  • The MPL provides power to each headset as well as routing the intercom signal to each headset.
  • There is no Intercom controller or ‘Hub’. Wire is hub-less with the only electronics being in the headsets. This eliminates a single point of failure making wire very reliable.
  • MPL is a low impedance, high level signal system resistant to RF and EM interference even when using plain unshielded and un-twisted cable.
