HOUSTON, JUNE 10, 2015 – Integrated Microwave Technologies (IMT), a leader in advanced digital microwave systems serving the state, local and federal law enforcement markets, introduces the Compact Receiver (CRx6) with multi-channel options, at ALEA Expo 2015, the Airborne Law Enforcement Association’s 45th annual conference and exposition (Booth 640).
CRx6 is a fully integrated receiver offering exceptional RF performance and IP66-rated environmental durability for external use, enabling law enforcement to mount it permanently onto the roof of headquarters or remote tower. It accepts the input from external antennas without problematic block down converters and streams directly over an IP network to a decoder or video management system. It is powered using PoE IEEE 802-3af. The CRx6 also features optional two- or four-channel six-way diversity reception in the same package.
“We designed the CRx6 to simplify installation, improve reliability and performance and reduce overall costs,” says John Payne IV, CTO, Integrated Microwave Technologies.
The CRx6 system is designed to optimize the receive signal automatically at all times, virtually eliminating human intervention. In contrast to older single, highly directional antennas, the CRx6 employs multiple antenna elements that cover 360 degrees of azimuth in overlapping sectors.
The CRx6 is the latest addition to IMT’s family of IP diversity receivers. When used in conjunction with IMT’s DR3 diversity receiver, multiple receivers can be paired together, expanding coverage seamlessly across a wide geographic area.
The CRx6 has an integrated Web page for simple controls and video monitoring. For advanced functions, such as changing frequency plans, AES decryption keys or unit naming, the unit comes with an easy-to-use Web-based administration software package.
