SHIELD Push-to-Talk

New for 2020! The SHIELD Push-to-Talk / Control Housing designed for the SHIELD In-the-Ear communication's headset is also compatible with the Atlantic Signal Below H20 Maritime Headset as well as the company's ComTac V and ComTac VI urban headsets. 10 meter / 10 hour Salt/Freshwater Submersible. Operates as Dual Radio Push-to-Talk with both built-In radio volume control and ambient volume control for the In-the-Ear SHIELD upper headset assembly. The SHIELD II Push-to-Talk for Multi-Band / Multi-Net Radios will be available in December 2021. Multi-Band/Multi-Net cabled radio connectors with and without EUD are currently available for use with other Atlantic Signal Control Boxes.

While the SHIELD Control Housing / PTT was designed in concert with the company's SHIELD In-the-Ear Communication headset, (see 'HEADSETS' section of website for details) the PTT is also compatible with the company's ComTac V and VI urban headsets as well as our maritime Below H20 headset. The SHIELD PTT is manufactured of polycarbonate / ABS with a black TPE over-mold. It's overall ergonomic size measurements are 4.39" x 2.67" x 1.18". The rear side features a blackened, steel, adjustable MOLLE clip for mounting to a load bearing equipment vest.

The SHIELD PTT was designed to handle two portable radios including those manufactured by THALES, Trellisware, HARRIS RF and Silvus as well as law enforcement portables and standard 6 pin military radios. The SHIELD PTT can monitor up to 2 nets simultaneously plus the addition of a connected smartphone or ICS cable. The radio PTT actuation switches face inboard when worn and the twin outboard actuation switches act as a portable radio volume control

The face of the SHIELD PTT features both an up and down button for controlling the ambient environmental awareness of the SHIELD earpieces when used with the PTT.

The SHIELD PTT features 4 mounting / connection receptacles for radio and accessory cables and the connection of the employed head worn device. The cables can be connected when required and disconnected and stored away when not required. The cables feature a 60 degree angled connection to the SHIELD PTT box allowing operators ease of access for connecting and disconnecting the cable assemblies. When seated into the box mounted receptacle(s), the cable assemblies are oriented in such a fashion as to be angled 45 degrees in toward the body armor to protect against snags and hang ups.
