New, Low Standby Current Option Extends Power

August 11, 2013

Kansas City, MO - Midland Radio Corporation announces a new upgrade feature to their BaseTech III product line: Low Standby Current Draw. The new Low Standby Current Draw feature extends operation of battery and/or solar powered equipment. This is accomplished by reducing current consumption when the unit is not actively transmitting or receiving. Standby current is reduced to approximately 120 mA  for VHF and 160 mA for UHF with this feature.

Midland is one of a small elite group of manufacturers to offer this feature. Scott Henderson, Vice President of LMR Sales said, “With this new feature our intelligent radios turn off the audio processing circuits when not in use. This greatly increases the battery life and reduces service and maintenance issues. This is extremely important with remote mountain applications that are not commercially powered.” Even more impressive is that radio specifications do not degrade due to power reduction – all radio performance standards remain constant.
