Barrett Communications is pleased to announce the release of the 4050 Control Handset, a further enhancement to the versatility of the Barrett 4050 HF SDR Transceiver.
The Barrett 4050 Control Handset combines smartphone-style ease-of-use with the touchscreen intuitiveness that users of the Barrett 4050 HF SDR Transceiver are familiar with. The streamlined design – including a built-in microphone and loudspeaker – makes the 4050 Control Handset the perfect substitution for the Barrett 4050’s control head in mobile installations. Its unobtrusive size easily mounts to a vehicle dashboard or vessel helm. A quick release attachment makes removing the handset a simple and uncomplicated one-hand operation.
The Control Handset can connect to both the front and rear of the transceiver and be used as the primary control interface, completely replacing the standard 4050 HF SDR Transceiver front control panel or as a secondary interface in conjunction with the standard control panel.
Connected to the transceiver body by a 6m cable – incorporating an auxiliary speaker jack – the handset display incorporates a super bright, high definition, 24-bit colour touchscreen which provides optimal viewing ability in all lighting conditions.
