To provide a simple introduction to the Tait DMR family of products, we’ve produced a series of videos each exploring the top benefits of various aspects of the solution. Today, we take a look at the Top 5 Benefits of the Tait DMR Base Stations, the TB7300 and the TB9300:
Top Benefits of the TB9300 and TB7300
In this post we’ll talk about the benefits of two different Tait Base Stations: The TB9300 and the TB7300. We’ll start by discussing some of the benefits that both of these provide, then look at how they are different.
Benefits of both Base Stations
Receiver Performance: The TB9300 and the TB7300 offer exceptional receiver performance and exceed or match all other DMR base stations on the market for sensitivity, selectivity and intermodulation performance. This means that the user gets extended talk-in (uplink) range as well as significantly increased resistance to interference for clearer, more consistent audio.
Remote Diagnostics and Management: Thanks to IP linking, the TB9300 and the TB7300 both offer comprehensive remote diagnostics and remote management. This enables you to maintain your system from the comfort of your desk and saves you a trip to the top of a mountain in terrible weather.
Smooth migration: Tait offers a range of flexible migration options. The TB9300 and the TB7300 can each be operated in multiple modes. The TB7300 has three modes, including Analog Conventional, DMR Tier 2, and DMR Tier 3. The TB9300 has four modes, and can operate in Analog Conventional, MPT-1327, DMR Tier 2, and DMR Tier 3. You can install the base station to operate on your existing network today, and then upgrade with ease when ready.
Differences between the Base Stations
Size and Weight: With an economical 1U design, the TB7300 is much smaller than the 4U TB9300. Weight is also noticeably different – the TB7300 weighs 6.7kg (or 14.8 pounds) while the TB9300 weighs 21.5kg (or 47.4 pounds).
Power Output: The TB7300 has a maximum 50W power output, while the TB9300 provides a maximum 100W power output.
PMU: The TB7300 does not have a Power Management Unit, or PMU, but the TB9300 does. This means the TB7300 power supply range must be 12VDC, but the TB9300 can handle several power supplies, including 12V, 24V, 48V and AC 88-264V.
Bands: The TB7300 is currently only available in VHF and UHF, but the TB9300 is available in VHF, UHF, 800, and 900 MHz
Modularity: The TB7300 is not modular, but the TB9300 is modular, which makes them easier to repair.
Here at Tait, we love both these base stations. While they do share a few strengths, there are some unique properties of each designed to meet different customer needs. Which base station is right for you? That depends on your requirements and budget. The TB7300 costs less, but doesn’t have all the features of the TB9300.
Fortunately, the two base stations can work together on the same network, and because they adhere to DMR open standards, they can also interoperate with other vendors’ DMR solutions.
And those are the top benefits of the Tait DMR base stations.
