APPI-Com: LWP and hands-free radio (Full-duplex)
APPI-Com: user friendly!back
Ergonomic design for intuitive use
Sporting the size of a mere credit card, APPI-Com is not only the most compact in its class, but also the most talented!
APPI-Com has been designed to overlook its complex technology: With a simple push of a button, the digitally coded auto-synchronous network deployed permits a natural conversation and Lone Worker Protection in all situations!
APPI-Com slips into a shirt pocket, on a shoulder strap, inside a hood or with a band - simplicity and maximum discretion is assured! Bluetooth connectivity and only three buttons for an easy access to all functions. With the built-in “Pager” function you can even alert your teammates, even without audio equipment or enable the immobility detection for a vocal alert to your mates: an appreciated safety function for isolated workers! The “Listen” mode permits an infinite number of tuned-in users to follow your group’s instructions, lectures or guidance in situations where simple microphones just don’t keep up.
Discussion within the team
APPI-Com is the result of a patented radio technology that allows communication in a natural way - no need to press buttons and wait your turn to talk, as with common walkie-talkies. For the unlimited number of team members, the full-duplex a conversation takes place in "full conference mode", while “out-of team” members can listen to the conversation, provided they possess the authorization “key”:
APPI-Com is a "Long Range Wireless Intercom" (LRWI) for the whole team!
In most natural multi-person conversations, the most effective communication for people who are not directly visible to each other is limited to three speakers simultaneously. A simple means to experience this common degeneration of conversations is by observing several speakers in a car:
- 2 people = 1 conversation –> comprehension good
- 3 people = 1 conversation –> comprehension good
- 4+ people = 2+ conversations –> cacophony / babble
For this reason, even in large teams, APPI-Com only allows 3 members to talk at the very same time to preserve understandability, but they all can intervene, each in turn: the team has a flexible communication system for all usages!
The proprietary digitally coded network is deployed at the touch of a button: your APPI-Com automatically identifies the other members of your group and starts the conference!

APPI-Com: hands-free radioback
Use the radio with occupied hands!
Professionals in confined, extreme and hazardous environments, transport, energy, nuclear or those who simply need to keep their hands free to accomplish their daily missions, do not always have a simple means to communicate - with walkie-talkies you need to press a button to talk! This naturally implies stopping an important activity during dialogue. It’s virtually impossible to run a fire hose in a fire emergency, or hold parts in place during construction activity, whilst operating PTTs and waiting on operator’s acknowledgement!
APPI-Com operates in "hands-free" mode, without having to touch the terminal to communicate, it may be placed under clothing for discretion, on a shoulder, or simply attached to a pocket or a belt!
Professionals can finally focus on their mission and forget the radio terminal - experience a natural conversation in all circumstances!
Discrete radio conversation
The APPI-Com system deploys a coded digital radio network. Each APPI-Com kit is identified by a “code” that prohibits another terminal, unless authorized, to listen-in to the conversation.
Terminals from other APPI-Com kits, when placed in "Listen" mode may or may not be authorized to listen to the conversation.
To ensure optimal confidentiality (special forces, corporations, large groups), a dedicated coding (option "SECURE") can be personalized to create "secured groups."
APPI-Com: Auto Syncback
Dynamic auto sync for your safety
No startup procedure or channel choice: with APPI-Com, initialization and synchronization are automatically performed for you within seconds!
Most traditional full-duplex radios necessitate a "Base", "Relay" or "Master terminal" to permit conference mode. This presents a significant risk of losing all communications when this special terminal is defective, out of range or taken out of service intentionally or by accident!
With an APPI-Com 43 kit, no Base or Sync Unit: any terminal may leave the group without altering communication between the others. Returning to the group requires no extra manipulation and is transparent: a guarantee of safety and effectiveness for the team!
APPI-Com: wireless, hands free, full-duplex intercom for the working team with unlimited users.

- TRIplex mode
produit/caracteristiques/triplex.jpgTRIplex modeSuitable for the majority of cases, the TriPlex mode allows three teammates to communicate in conference. The other members of the team remain in "listen only".
- PIVOT mode
produit/caracteristiques/pivot.gifPIVOT modeSituation: Several teams communicate in conference in isolation (one channel for each pair).
Someone outside the pairs would like to communicate in conference with a specific pair and toggle quickly and easily from one pair to another
This person has the PIVOT module.
Option: Other members can listen to the conversation of a specific channel.
- MULTIplex mode
produit/caracteristiques/multiplex.jpgMULTIplex modeFor a team desiring of a communication in a conference with more than three people, the MULTIplex mode is made for it.
The MULTIplex mode defines two so-called 'priority' modules. They communicate in a permanently conference.
The rest of the team is in permanent listening to the conversation and can speak in turn.
