BLUETOOTH ADDON BRINGS MOBILE COMMS TO PROTECTIVE EARMUFFS

3M has developed a Bluetooth wireless accessory for its Peltor X series protective earmuffs available from RS Components.

The Bluetooth addon is designed to allow workers to make and receive calls using their mobile phones without having to leave the site or remove their hearing protection. It will also allow them to communicate with colleagues also on site with a single push of a button.

The wireless accessory simply snaps into place in between the headset and the earmuff cushion of an X series earmuff while maintaining an IP54 rating for use in harsh environments. It includes a noise-cancelling microphone, and is designed to provide 8h of operation on a single charge (with 250h on standby).

The Peltor Bluetooth wireless communication accessory and the X series earmuffs from 3M are now shipping from RS in the Asia Pacific region.
