LightSpeed™ R50

The LightSpeed™ R50 units are the latest generation of the LightSpeed™ optical communication system, incorporating the latest technology in a handheld package. The eye-safe IR LED (no laser) used by R50 allows non-visible communications between units at distances at extended range. Using the supplied headsets, R50 provides full-duplex voice communication. The units also function as an Ethernet link to a remote computing device or to another system via a standard Ethernet connection. In situations where a hardwire connection is unavailable or undesirable, R50 are the perfect alternative to cables.
