OPH & OPS – Handhelds
In respect of the needs for suitable and rugged handheld equipment for the specific harsh environmental conditions in railway operations
Funkwerk has developed the product family focX®. This has been
done based on the respective specifications for the digital GSM-R
standard as well as for the analogue UIC 751-3 standard.
The focX®– products have been designed for the specific market needs of the European railway operators.
Based on the design concept a highly efficient technological platform for GSM-R can be offered.
All focX®-handhelds are already prepared with a transceiver that supports the future use of the GSM-R frequency band extension from 4 to 7 MHz.
Out of this product family the DualfocX® is the world’s first OPS (Operational Handheld for Shunting) that fulfills the whole set of functional requirements including Direct Mode according EIRENE FRS for shunting operations. With Direct Mode the handsets can also be used whenever a fixed GSM-R network infrastructure is not available.
The latest product from Funkwerk is a mobile GSM-R modem f.locX.
