GMDSS Portable for Survival Craft
SIMPLE TO USE SURVIVAL CRAFT RADIO
The IC-GM1600E Marine VHF handheld has been designed for GMDSS-compliant survival craft communications. The radio is engineered to survive and function in the extreme environmental conditions common in marine emergencies. Using this simple-to-use radio, an operator can transmit a distress call without hesitation in an emergency. Simple operating instructions are attached to the back of the radio.
MEETS STRICT ENVIRONMENTAL REQUIREMENTS
The IC-GM1600E meets temperature, thermal shock, vibration and drop resistance (from 1 m height) requirements. After passing those environmental tests, the IC-GM1600E retains 1 m depth waterproof construction as specified by IMO resolutions A.694 (17), MSC149 (77), and related specifications.
OPTIONAL BATTERY WITH SUPERIOR LOW-TEMPERATURE CHARACTERISTICS
The optional high-capacity primary Lithium battery, BP-234, provides more than 8 hours of operating time even at –20°C. The BP-234 can be stored for five years.
(Duty cycle: Tx: Rx: Stand-by = 6: 6: 48)
LARGE KEYPAD WITH POSITIVE BUTTON ACTION
Clearly labeled large buttons and positive button action allows for operation in all conditions, even when wearing heavy gloves. The transparent buttons are printed from behind (not on top), so the operating label on the keypad will never be erased under hard use over many years.
WIDE VIEWING ANGLE, HIGH-INTENSITY LCD
A wide viewing angle, high-intensity LCD offers bright and easy-to-read characters. The bright LCD indicator on top of the front panel shows the operating status clearly.
