Sirius panel together with a DM4600 radio
Connecting the panel
The panel has a fixed cable connection in order to provide maximum water proofing.
The cable is delivered with an open end so that it can be cut at the correct length for each installation. Connector housing and pins for the connector are delivered in the kit along with instructions.
Optionally this cable can be delivered with connectors at 50cm distance from the panel for easier service.
When connecting to Motorola MotoTrbo radios the only connections are power and data through USB. These are all accessed through the radios back connector.
For larger projects LS Elektronik can provide ready made cable kits at customer specification.
The panel does not support the audio path. This has to be done directly from the radio. In many cases we believe that this will be through a helmet headset or similar.
Same thing with the PTT. This needs to be done separately.
Radios with a built in bluetooth connection can use this for both audio and PTT functions if needed.
The Sirius Panel does not use the Bluetooth path for the data communication. This is for the following reasons:
- It will still need a cable for power, so it can´t be cordless.
- Syncronising units with Bluetooth is often problematic and we don´t want our users to get stuck there.
