Funkwerk Security Communications at CeBIT 2011

The personal alarm signal experts present their current range of mobile TETRA, DECT and GSM terminals at stand A10 in hall 7

(PresseBox) (Salzgitter, ) For the first time, three business units of the Funkwerk group will have a joint presence at CeBIT from the 1st to the 5th of March 2011, at stand 10 in hall 7. Funkwerk Automotive Communications, Funkwerk En-terprise Communications and Funkwerk Security Communi-cations are presenting innovative, German-made communica-tion solutions as well as offering an overview of the multifac-eted Funkwerk product range. Highlights being presented at CeBIT by this high-tech company include professional secu-rity and communication solutions, tailor-made ITC-solutions for small and medium-sized enterprises and connectivity so-lutions for use in vehicles.

This year, Funkwerk Security Communications GmbH, a leader in the field of personal security and hazard management systems, will present its personal alarm systems at the Funkwerk AG stand. The current, ex-panded product range of TETRA, DECT and GSM terminals creates an optimal communication platform for a certified, modular security system that complies with all relevant standards.

A recent addition to the Funkwerk Security Communications range is the funkwerk FC4 Medical DECT handset. Thanks to the Gap/Cap standard, this model can integrated into all standard and integral DECT. An antim-icrobial coating, specially developed by FSC, effectively reduces the spread of germs on the casing. The modern, light-weight housing is dust-proof, water-jet resistant and complies with the IP65 standard of protection.

Further products in the DECT field include the funkwerk FC4 series of industrial handsets. In addition to the base model, a PNA handset that is certified in accordance with the ATEX 94/9/EG directive will also be dis-played at CeBit. This allows the safe use of the handset in areas with a high risk of explosion - either due to gas or dust.


For Funkwerk Security Communications, TETRA is the technology of the future. The company, which is based in Lower Saxony, will present TETRA radio handsets equipped with high-quality sensor technology. Models developed with the chemical and petrochemical industries in mind include the explosion-protected FT4 Ex / FT4 S Ex versions. These comply with the ATEX 94/9/EG directive and have extremely robust cas-ings, which are the first on the market to be certified in accordance with IP65.

In all the funkwerk FT4-series handsets, personal emergency signal functions are integrated with automatic localisation, with four manual and four automatic alarm modes in addition to radio group and telephony functions.

Rounding off the CeBit 2011 presentation will be the well-known personal emergency systems, based on the public GSM mobile network, with nation-wide coverage.
