RM-2000 Receiver/Monitor


The RM-2000 Portable Receiver/Monitor receives, displays and stores digital messages from the digital PT-210 and PT-350 series processor/transmitters and RP-3000 series repeaters. It also will receive FM-VHF voice transmissions as well as most competitive system transmissions. The receiver's broad bandwidth accommodates all frequencies from 138-175MHz on a 6.25 KHz channel spacing. Programming the RM-2000 is simple via the Telonics Product Programmer, a Windows-compatible interface, or a 4-button keypad and a backlit Liquid Crystal Display (LCD).

The RM-2000 is compact and lightweight, facilitating ease of use. The electronics are sealed in a waterproof, shock-resistant Lexan plastic housing. The RM-2000 features store-on-board memory, allowing users to store up to 250 timestamped messages in memory for retrieval later via a computer terminal or a serial printer. A top-mounted connector provides access for available headphones, switched output for triggering camera systems, and a USB cable for printing the received transmission or programming user-adjustable parameters. Selectable tones, vibrator, or a combination of the two can alert users of received messages. Telonics provides several battery pack options with the RM-2000.

The standard power supply is Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH); however, Nickel-Cadmium (NI-cad) and Alkaline battery packs are also available. The RM-2000 operates for up to 72 hours on a single charge. The RM-2000 Receiver/Monitor includes the charging base and AC adapter, antenna and carrying case. Telonics can also provide a gang charging base for up to six RM-2000 receivers.

Telonics can sell this product only to law enforcement, military, and government agencies; these products are for use only within such agencies.
