questionnaires at their own pace in any location. Responses can be downloaded to a PC at
a later time in a group or individually.
Anti-theft alarm - to prevent loss and aid recovery of the communicator after meetings.
Sounder - ability to play tunes and associate different sounds for audible key presses.
Base station - any communicator can act as the interface between a PC and any number of communicators. The data
socket also provides communications with external peripheral equipment (eg keyboards) for future developments.
On/off switch - off can be disabled during a meeting.
Bar code - fast scanning of unique serialised numbers for delegate registration purposes.

changing sponsorship logos in LCD window.

Easy set up - with virtually no set up time the communicator can be used in
sessions preceded by a coffee break or where the room layout requires a quick
turnaround or new layout.
No peripheral kit required - one short cable is the only extra you
require as any communicator becomes the base station when linked to
the PC. Reduces costs still further.
Future proof & flexible - the upgradeable flash BIOS and
programmable graphics display ensure that potential for
innovative development and customisation is built in.
Style & familiarity familiar mobile phone layout.
User friendly - onscreen prompts provide guidance
when delegates are responding. Onscreen validation
provides total confidence that they have entered
their response correctly and that it has been
received by the PC.
Saves time & manpower - by allowing
delegates to collect and return their
communicators from the charging racks by
the door or at reception.
Fast responses - event triggered communications
get responses in far quicker time than polled systems as
the communicators send response messages as soon as
the keys are pressed.
Sponsorship & branding communicator window, wrist
strap and smart card can all be customised.
Hassle free easy to use & reliable. No complicated training required
to run your own meetings.
