Pliant Technologies (opens in new tab) is set to unveil its CCU-08 CrewCom Control Unit. The CCU-08 is the latest addition to the CrewCom system and gives users the ability to use up to eight 4-Wire ports while retaining all the same features of the current companion CCU-22 and CCU-44 products.

Like the current Control Units, the CCU-08 Control Unit contains no radio and is frequency agnostic and can therefore control and monitor any device across CrewNet regardless of radio frequency bands being utilized. With the combination of CrewCom Radio Transceivers, the new CCU-08 supports up to 82 Radio Packs, 18 in Normal mode and 64 in the recently released High Density mode, across all RF bands.

“The CCU-08 is an important addition to the CrewCom lineup,” said Gary Rosen, vice president of global sales for Pliant Technologies. “The CCU-08 adds the ability to have up to eight 4-Wire intercom connections working simultaneously allowing for even larger scale deployments. The new CCU-08 is designed for applications that need additional I/O but do not require 2-wire connectivity.”
