Cardo Crew Makes 2020 ‘Year Of Smart PPE’ With Easy-To-Fit Lightweight Mesh Communication Module
TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 15, 2021--
Cardo Crew, part of Cardo Systems and a global player in the field of critical communications, providing reliable, hands-free wireless intercom for teams on the move, reflects on 2020 as the year ‘smart PPE’ became the communication tool of choice for essential teams and key workers.
January 2020 saw the global launch of the company’s flagship product, Cardo Crew PRO-1, a lightweight mesh communication module that can be neatly fitted to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as helmets, visors and ear mufflers.
The PRO-1 uses Dynamic Mesh Communication (DMC™) , pioneered by Cardo Systems, which allows always-on, two-way hands-free communication for groups of up to 15 workers, without the need for a base station. This makes the PRO-1 an ideal choice for teams working in fast-paced, mission-critical environments. The company then released the PROmesh mobile application , offering rapid set-up and real-time control for PRO-1 users and administrators.
Shachar Harari, Chief Business Officer & Head of Cardo Crew, commented: “The PRO-1 transforms PPE itself into a hands-free communication tool, taking wearable communications technology to the next level. Hands-free wireless communication has always been important to mission-critical workers and those with hands-on jobs in noisy, busy environments, and that need was only exacerbated by the pandemic . ”
The launch of the PRO-1 came just 2 months after the company was recognised by consultancy firm, Frost & Sullivan, as a Technology Innovation leader for group communication technology in noisy environments. Commenting on the award, Harari said, “After ending 2019 on a high by winning the F&S award, 2020 was an excellent year for Cardo Crew. We signed our first long-term OEM deals just months after launching the PRO-1, and entered several more partnerships in the months that followed, making it a very successful year for Cardo Crew, and we’re looking forward to exploring new markets as we continue to grow.” .
