The S and SD Series, low current Repeater and Base Station solutions, are designed from the ground up for the absolute lowest power consumption and features the lowest current draw of any professional high performance Repeater/Base Station on the market today. Advanced circuit design and optimization is demonstrated by the very high level of RF performance achieved while maintaining very low power consumption levels. The S & SD set a new industry benchmark by avoiding dated techniques that try to save power wasted by constantly duty cycling the receiver on and off or degrading the RF performance to unacceptable levels. The S & SD do not sacrifice any of these critical requirements and achieves a level of performance that competing products can provide at any power consumption level. Available as a Base Station or Repeater, in Analog Conventional (SMX) or P25 Digital (SDMX) (with LZAST92 P25 Option).
