This ATEX approved IC-F51/F61 transceiver offers safety approved 2-way communication preventing explosion and fire hazard in specified hazardous areas.
The IC-F51 series meets the requirements for a tough, waterproof communications tool for use in hazardous areas such as oil rigs, areas where flammable gases or liquids are used, and other potentially explosive environments.
Can withstand submersion in 1m depth of water
The ATEX versions of the IC-F51 and F61, conforms to the 94/9/EC ATEX Directive. The IC-F51 series is a waterproof PMR transceiver whose construction is equivalent to IPX7 which is the same rating as our marine handheld models. In addition, built-in signalling capabilities and UT-110 compatible voice scrambler function eliminate the need for an optional logic board. The IC-F51 series meets the requirements for a tough, waterproof communications tool for use in hazardous areas such as oil rigs, areas where flammable gases or liquids are used, and other potentially explosive environments.
* Equivalent to IPX7 of the corresponding International Standard IEC 60529(2001). 1m depth for 30 minutes.
The approved rating is II2G EEx ib IIA T3.
The IC-F51 series has a waterproof construction which is equivalent to IPX7. The IC-F51 series can withstand submersion in 1m depth of water for up to 30 minutes.
The aluminium die-cast chassis combined with a polycarbonate casing is designed to last. Its compact dimensions of 56 (W) x 97 (H) x 36 (D) mm allow the IC-F51 series to fit comfortably in your palm or shirt pocket.
The IC-F51 series comes with a standard 1700mAh Lithium-Ion battery pack, BP-227AX that provides stable output power and a practical 13 hours* of operating time. Lithium-ion batteries allow flexible charging** and have almost no memory effect.
*Typical operation; Tx:Rx:Stand-by duty cycle=5:5:90
** Please note that ATEX radios should not be charged in Hazardous environments.
The IC-F51 features an 8-character 14 segment alphanumeric LCD. An automatic LCD backlight is standard, ideal for night time operation.
The IC-F51 series has 2-Tone, 5-Tone, CTCSS and DTCS signalling capabilities for group communication or selective calling as standard.
The IC-F51 series has a built-in voice scrambler. The scrambling system is fully compatible with the UT-110 voice scrambler unit, which uses 1020 codes (255 codes x 4 groups.). In addition, an inversion type voice scrambler is available in all versions
* ATEX version has a built-in UT-110 compatible voice scrambler.
Up to 7 programmable buttons, [P0]–[P3], [▲], [▼],and [Red button] can be assigned additional functions to meet a variety of requirements. In addition, there is a space for function assign stickers below these buttons.
The optional speaker microphone, HM-138, also has waterproof construction equivalent to IPX7. The HM-138 is approved for use with ATEX models.
