About the DVCS6100
The DVCS6100 design provides the customer with ability to match a wide range of operational requirements with only one system. The built-in scalability and flexibility reduces not only the cost and time requirements for constant re-engineering and certification of a tailored system solution, but also reduces the learning curve for system integration, maintenance and troubleshooting time. Through software programming options, the product is both easily and quickly configurable to individual customer requirements, thus saving time and money.
The DVCS' open system architecture technology provides for operational comfort and superior voice quality, ensuring that almost any customer requirement can be met, while providing crystal clear communication for crew and passengers.
The hi-tech Digital DVCS6100 will enhance the effectiveness of any aerial platform. When compared to a legacy analog audio system, Digital technology provides simplified installation, improved performance, reduced wiring and weight, along with reduced installation and maintenance costs. Furthermore, the comprehensive built-in-test (BIT) feature enables line maintenance crews to easily diagnose/isolate failures and to replace system components quickly.
No matter the mission type - from Airborne Law Enforcement, EMS, to passenger transport and surveillance or utility operations, the Becker Digital Audio system ensures a more modern and capable aerial platform. At Becker, the focus is on meeting individual client requirements with the highest commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.
