Tecpro Series 2 headset outstations (or beltpacks as they are commonly known) are tough, lightweight, remote intercom stations typically hung from the belt but can be used freestanding or mounted on a suitable surface. They offer full duplex operation and have been designed for portable use where care may not always taken by the user.

Series 2 beltpacks retain the robustness and simplicity of previous Tecpro designs while extending their performance to meet current operational requirements. They are compatible with earlier designs of Tecpro equipment.

To reduce weight without compromising strength or hard-wearing properties, Series 2 beltpack cases are constructed from high impact ABS.

Three versions are available. The BP511 single circuit beltpack replaces the massively popular BP111 while the BP523 and BP525 beltpacks replace the six previous dual circuit models.

Dual circuit beltpacks offer simultaneous access to two separate intercom circuits. Monitoring is via a pluggable headset and each circuit has its own volume control. Two 'Microphone Select' switches let the operator speak to either or both circuits. 'Mic Select' switches glow green when activated.

The BP511 single circuit beltpack retains both 'Mic Select' switches linked in parallel. Pressing either switch will open or close the microphone circuit. A single volume control is provided for monitoring.

To catch the attention of operators who have removed their beltpack and headset, a call alert signal is sent by pressing the red 'Call' button. This produces a combination of 20kHz tone and a DC signal to trigger the call lights on all user stations and outstations on a chosen circuit. DC call signalling has been retained for compatibility with previous Tecpro designs.

When a call alert signal is received on circuit A, that channel's 'Mic select' and 'Call' buttons flash brightly to attract attention. On dual circuit beltpacks, this is repeated for circuit B. For increased visibility, Series 2 beltpacks have a mimic LED on their base so the call alert may be seen from most angles. A 'Call' send/receive confidence tone is also heard in the headset. This may be muted by pressing a combination of buttons on the beltpack.

An optional vibration motor (as used in mobile phones) is available. This triggers when a call alert signal is received. This function can be switched off by pressing a combination of buttons on the beltpack.

The brightly illuminated 'Mic Select' and 'Call' switches make for good visibility in well lit areas. For blackout conditions with an audience present, a low light mode may be entered which dims the green mic buttons and prevents the call light from flashing. This is initiated by pressing a combination of buttons on the beltpack.

All series 2 beltpacks can send and receive 'Remote Mic Kill' signals. This mode is useful for keeping unnecessary noise and chatter to a minimum so important commands are not missed. On receipt of a 24kHz tone on circuit A or B, the beltpack will respond by switching off the corresponding microphone if it is active. To initiate 'Remote Mic Kill', a combination of buttons must be pressed. First generation beltpacks use mechanical 'Mic select' switches so are unable to respond to the mic kill tone.

When talk back from an operator is not required, one or both microphone circuits can be disabled by pressing a combination of buttons on the beltpack.

The three new beltpack variants are fitted with different XLR combinations. The BP511 single circuit beltpack is fitted with male and female XLR3 connectors in parallel so beltpacks may be easily daisy-chained together to form a temporary intercom circuit.

The BP525 dual circuit beltpack uses male and female XLR5 connectors in parallel so beltpacks may be easily daisy-chained together to form a temporary intercom circuit using dedicated 5pin XLR cables.

The BP523 dual circuit beltpack uses two separate female input XLR3 connectors one for each circuit. Space restrictions dictate there is no loop through facility available on this beltpack.

While commonly referred to as 'Beltpacks', Series 2 headset outstations are now more versatile. A 'mushroom' shaped extrusion on the rear of the case is designed to mate with a swivel belt clip (supplied) and a wide range of other options including the 'hip drop clip', 'sash band clip' and 'no belt' waistband clip. Other options are under development.
