Enhance productivity in the agricultural industry with Hytera DMR radios
Hytera DMR radios enhance productivity in the agricultural industry
Farm managers need to be in constant touch with arable and livestock teams and workers in packhouses, grain stores and livestock sheds to coordinate tasks efficiently and keep track of progress. To ensure this, the industry requires a reliable, cost-effective and powerful communications solution capable of delivering a consistent service across the whole estate.
Arable crops need to be harvested on dry days, but finding a window in the weather can be tricky. When there is one, farm workers and harvesting machinery need to be organised and coordinated for long days in the fields. Good radio communications are key to maximising efficiency and enhancing productivity. Much the same applies to dealing with livestock movements, delivering fodder and administering veterinary care.
Mobile phone networks are problematic as coverage can be patchy in rural areas and mobile phones are rarely robust enough to cope with the outdoor environment. In contrast, a professional communications solution such as Hytera Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) provides a highly reliable, robust and powerful, instant push-to-talk (PTT) solution. Enabling groups of people to talk to each other simultaneously to coordinate and synchronise farming activities.
For example, a rugged outdoor RD965 DMR repeater, with an antenna mounted on a high building like a grain silo, will cover a large farm. And by using in-vehicle mobile radios and hand portable DMR radios, everyone on the farm can be included in the discussion.
Hytera DMR radios provide a high degree of ruggedisation and weather proofing against dust and moisture ingress. They feature noise cancelling technology for crystal clear audio even in the noisiest farm environments. If required, the radios can provide integrated GPS for location services and they can support Man Down and Lone Worker alarms to enhance farm worker safety.
The radios have a long battery life to provide at least 16-hours of talk-time, so farm workers can stay in touch when working long hours in the fields. A DMR solution gives the farm complete control of its communications and without the hassle of ongoing monthly contracts.
