RS Components introduces Bluetooth earmuff accessory
September 2018, Industrial Wireless


RS Components has announced the availability of the new Peltor wireless accessory from 3M. The new device incorporates Bluetooth wireless communication technology and is designed for use with the Peltor X series earmuffs to enable communication via a mobile phone.

The product offers numerous advantages for those working in noisy environments, enabling clear hands-free communication without compromising safety. It allows workers to make and receive important calls without having to leave the site or remove their hearing protection, and to communicate via the simple push of a button with colleagues also on site.

The accessory, which meets IP54 for use in harsh environments, simply snaps into place in between the headset and the earmuff cushion of an X series earmuff. Key specifications include a noise-cancelling microphone, one-button operation, talk time of approximately eight hours, standby time of approximately 250 hours, and charging time of approximately three hours.

Noise induced hearing damage is irreversible and a real health concern in the modern world, not only in the workplace but also in certain leisure activities such as motor racing and rock concerts, for example. In recognising this health hazard, hearing protectors are now redefined as Harmful Noise under the PPE Regulations. The PPE Regulation outlines the role of economic operators including manufacturers and distributors, for example, in helping ensure the products are continuously monitored for compliance.

Guidance on ensuring hearing protection is fit for purpose can be found in 3M’s product documentation.
