JPS NXU-2A RoIP Network Extension Unit Improved and Upgraded to NXU-2B

IP 2-way Radio Gateway

The popular JPS NXU-2A network extension unit has been improved and will begin shipping next month as the NXU-2B. It uses the same cabinet and is fully functional in systems with the older NXU-2A. The new model no longer uses potentiometers so level setting can be accomplished remotely using a browser. This eliminates a costly service call to the transmitter site.

Improve handheld radio coverage using internet

Another big change is the 15-pin audio interface connector has been redesigned to allow any of the standard JPS radio cables to be connected directly to the unit. The NXU-2A required the included crossover adapter to work but half the time it was left in the box.

In addition to solid state keying, the NXU-2B will have a PTT relay and the ability to interface to transmitters via 600 ohm balanced audio.

Below is a video showing the capabilities of the NXU network extension unit.

Magnum Electronics has been an authorized JPS Interoperability reseller since 2005 and support the entire JPS product line. Contact us at our Dover, Delaware office during normal business hours. The phone number is (302) 734-9250 or use the form below.

3M Peltor ComTac VI NIB Tactical Communications Headset Offers New Features

Next generation ComTac VI NIB and SWAT-TAC VI NIB tactical headsets from 3M offer MT20H682FB-47N GN Single Comm Greenadvanced features and improvements that justify the upgrade of your existing hearing protection.

Natural Interaction Behavior or “NIB” is a new feature allowing up to four team members to speak simultaneously (full duplex) within approximately 30 feet of each other and 60 others can listen. It automatically starts when high noise level prevents normal voice communications. The video below illustrates how NIB works.

New Mission Audio Profiles (MAP), Advanced VOX, and Telescope Boom Mic

Past headset users only had the volume control adjustment when the noise level changed. MAP provides five different audio profiles for environmental listening designed for typical missions as defined below:

  • Observation – highest volume and widest frequency response for max hearing
  • Patrol – High volume, reduced high frequencies to limit footsteps, close sounds
  • Conversation – Maximizes face-to-face communications
  • Comfort – High noise for long periods of time (tactical vehicle, air transport)
  • Off/Disabled – Capability to turn OFF environmental listening

Advanced VOX (voice operated transmit) is adaptive, meaning the threshold to activate will adjust automatically depending on the noise environment. The ComTac VI also has a button on the left earcup so you can easily switch from VOX to PTT.

The MT73 boom microphone has also been redesigned with improved noise-cancelling technology and IP68 submersibility rating. The new design accommodates both left and right handed shooters without moving the mic to opposite side of the headset. The boom can telescope to adjust its length too.
