The Clear-Com CCT-9RT Remote Transceiver allows the Tempest BaseStation antenna to be located up to 1500 ft (450m) from the BaseStation without any loss of RF signal. The CCT-9RT is connected to the BaseStation via a standard CAT-5 cable using RJ-45 connectors. Power is provided over the CAT-5 cable so that no local power is required for the RemoteTransceiver to operate normally. The CCT-RT is constructed of aluminum allow. It comes with a universal mounting plate that can be used to mount the transceiver to poles, walls or other desired areas. One CCT-9RT can be connected to a single Tempest BaseStation (2- or 4-channel). A direct connection is required. The transceiver will not operate properly if connected to a Local Area Network (LAN) or routed through a network device such as a router or switch. The transceiver has one RP-TNC antenna connector on top of the enclosure that can attach the standard 2dBi whip antenna, or employ optional directional antennas via coaxial cable. The Tempest900 operates within the 900MHz frequency band. The longer wave lengths and wider symbol width in this band allow signals to break through dense walls and other structural objects more readily, increasing the range for users and reducing potential loss of audio. The CCT-9RT is equipped with five LED indicators so that the user can ensure proper operation of the transceiver. RX and TX LEDs indicate proper data transfer to and from the BaseStation and wireless BeltStation. Sync and Config LEDs indicate that the transceiver has been properly initialized and is communicating with the BaseStation. Power LED illuminates whenever the BaseStation is providing adequate power to the transceiver over the CAT-5 cable. The CCT-9RT is weather resistant and is intended for use outside. It is recommended, however, that in extreme weather conditions appropriate measure are taken to ensure that no water enters into the enclosure. The Clear-Com Tempest2400 and Tempest900 were engineered to work together. In applications where both systems are required, these two products seamlessly integrate to function as one coherent system. No intra-system interference. No compromise in performance. No reduction in total number of users on each individual system.Areas of the frequency spectrum that have traditionally been used for wireless intercoms are crowded and more difficult to use. Licensing requirements, radio spectrum reallocation and the wide variety of technologies compete for the same air space.The Tempest Wireless Platform offers a flawless solution to break through wireless interference and offer a comprehensive wired-intercom feature set with the convenience, flexibility and freedom of wireless operation.The Tempest family of wireless intercoms currently comprises the Tempest2400 and Tempest900 systems, available in two and four-channels, and in 2.4GHz or 900MHz frequency bands, respectively.
