Type B60 Waterproof Microphones

ATEX approved, intrinsically safe microphones

Watertight, Shockproof, Blastproof Microphone

ATEX approved microphones for use in hazardous environments

This military grade microphone is completely watertight (IP67) and robustly built to withstand shock, explosion and total salt water immersion. The microphone is intended for use in potentially hazardous or explosive operational environments and an ATEX microphone is available with the same robust quality and waterproof capabilities.

The microphone casing is constructed of aluminium alloy die-cast section and enclosed in a removable rubber case. The spring-loaded press-to-talk switch is available in two configurations, for either series switching or for shunt switching of the microphone inset. The standard cable is 2m long and the microphone will operate with a maximum cable length of up to 150m.

ATEX Approved Microphone

An intrinsically safe ATEX 2014/34/EU Zone 0 (IEC 80079-34) version is available which conforms to the British Approval Service for Electrical Equipment in Flammable Atmosphere (SIRA Cert. M0953) and can be used in potentially explosive environments.
