In addition, built-in signalling capabilities and UT-110 compatible voice scrambler function eliminate the need for an optional logic board. The IC-F51 series meets the requirements for a tough, waterproof communications tool for use in hazardous areas such as oil rigs, areas where flammable gases or liquids are used, and other potentially explosive environments. * Equivalent to IPX7 of the corresponding International Standard IEC 60529(2001). 1 metre depth for 30 minutes.
This ATEX approved IC-F51/F61 transceiver offers safety approved 2-way communication preventing explosion and fire hazard in specified hazardous areas.
The approved rating is II2G EEx ib IIA T3.
Special conditions for use:
- Must be used with BP-227AX
- Speaker-microphone HM-138
Please ensure the IC-F51/F61 ATEX rating is acceptable for the intended place of use. These ATEX models have all the same functions and features as non-ATEX versions including;
The IC-F51 series has waterproof construction which is equivalent to IPX7. The IC-F51 series can withstand submersion in 1m depth of water for up to 30 minutes.
Tough and compact body
The aluminium die-cast chassis combined with a polycarbonate casing is designed to last. Its compact dimensions of 56 (W) x 97 (H) x 36 (D) mm allow the IC-F51 series to fit comfortably in your palm or shirt pocket.
Standard Lithium-Ion battery pack
The IC-F51 series comes with a standard 1700mAh Lithium-Ion battery pack, BP-227AX that provides stable output power and a practical 13 hours* of operating time. Lithium-ion batteries allow flexible charging** and have almost no memory effect.
*Typical operation; Tx:Rx:Stand-by duty cycle=5:5:90
** Please note that ATEX radios should not be charged in Hazardous environments.
The IC-F51 features an 8-character 14 segment alphanumeric LCD. An automatic LCD backlight is standard, ideal for night time operation.
The IC-F51 series has 2-Tone, 5-Tone, CTCSS and DTCS signalling capabilities for group communication or selective calling as standard.
Built-in rolling type voice scrambler*
The IC-F51 series has a built-in voice scrambler. The scrambling system is fully compatible with the UT-110 voice scrambler unit, which uses 1020 codes (255 codes x 4 groups.). In addition, an inversion type voice scrambler is available in all versions
* ATEX version has a built-in UT-110 compatible voice scrambler.
Up to 7 programmable buttons, [P0]–[P3], [▲], [▼],and [Red button] can be assigned additional functions to meet a variety of requirements. In addition, there is a space for function assign stickers below these buttons.
Optional speaker microphone, HM-138
The optional speaker microphone, HM-138, also has waterproof construction equivalent to IPX7. The HM-138 is approved for use with ATEX models.
