Industrial and Commercial Telephone Benefits, Uses and Features

Industrial and commercial telephone systems are designed for use in public and private outdoor areas. They allow members of the public and staff to conveniently make calls in the event of an emergency, or if there is no mobile phone network available. There are a range of telephones available on the market. This article takes a look at the uses and benefits of commercial telephones, and how you can find a reputable supplier in your area.

Industrial and Commercial Telephone Uses

These types of telephones have a huge range of applications, including for use in airports, amusement parks, swimming pool areas, universities, warehouses, mines, greenhouses, constructions sites, ships and processing plants, amongst many other things. They are designed to withstand harsh weather elements as well as dust and corrosive chemicals, making them suitable for use in almost any situation.

Yellow Enclosers

Yellow enclosures will not only protect the phone, but they will draw attention to it. This is particularly beneficial for easy identification, and for when members of the public may need to locate a phone in the event of an emergency.

Spring Closed Doors

Spring closed doors use special springs to ensure that the phone door automatically shuts after the phone has been used. This will ensure that the phone is protected, which will provide a longer product life. It will also prevent the door from being blown open during storms.

Automatic Speaker Control

Some commercial or industrial phones will have an automatic speaker control which will adjust the speaker sound levels according to the background noise in the area that it is being used. This feature is useful in noisy situations, such as in machinery plants and on construction sites.

Additional Features

Many phones come with additional features, such as surge arresters, electret noise reducing headphones, modular parts, and hearing aid compatibility. The phones come on a steel mounting plate, which allows for quick and easy installation on any flat surface. Telephones are typically connected to any local telephone network using standard wiring and components.

Service and Repairs

Many telecommunications providers will be able to offer a full repair service. Over time these types of phone systems are prone to problems such as audio buzzing, low audio levels or echos. These problems can be easily and quickly fixed by hiring a specialist to come and repair them for you. Scheduled maintenance surveys will ensure that your phone system is working at its optimum performance. A repair specialist will be able to advise you on the maintenance and repair services that they offer.

Where to Purchase Commercial and Industrial Communication Products

These types of products will need to be purchased from a specialist retailer. You find a retailer in your area by searching for them online. All major retailers will have a website that will list images and details of all of the products and services that they offer. Always choose a reputable seller to ensure that you will be purchasing high quality communications equipment that is built to last.


LED Work Lights for Industrial and Commercial Use

As technology becomes more advanced, more innovative ways to accomplish the same purpose are being created every day. For example, construction workers or any heavy equipment machinery that work and operate at night needs sufficient lighting to effectively do their jobs properly. Old fashioned incandescent halogen lamps do the job, but require a large amount of electrical energy and they are not that efficient in providing light. More efficient forms of lighting such as LED lights are becoming more and more popular among industrial and commercial vehicles as a reliable lighting source.

If you have ever driven on the freeway at night, you may have seen several construction vehicles whether they are full blown earth diggers to a simple work truck and they all sport yellow and white lights that flash to let people know they are there. While they are working at a site, those lights have to be left on and that would drain the vehicles battery if the engine was not running. However, leaving the engine on and running is not cheap since gas is an expensive commodity to own. Since LED lights are very efficient at using power to convert to light, LED emergency or construction lights are becoming more commonly used in applications. Instead of having to leave the vehicle engine on to power the lights, LEDs can run directly off the battery without the engine thanks to their super low power draw and efficiency.

Another huge advantage that LED lights have over conventional incandescent halogen bulbs is their durability in harsh environments. LED lights are not vulnerable to vibrations and external temperatures like incandescent halogen bulbs are; LEDs are vibration resistant and can operate in extremely cold or hot temperatures with ease. Heavy machinery such as tractors, plows, earth diggers and other CAT manufacturer vehicles would benefit greatly from a bulb-less LED light that is reliable and durable. In addition to these benefits, most LED work lights are water proof to a certain degree so it can withstand wet and snowy working conditions without having to worry about shorting out. The long working life of LEDs also provide added benefits as these types of lights will be constantly on for long periods at a time.

LED work lights are also available in a variety of different sizes and styles to fit a variety of applications. The most common styles available are the round and square shaped ones with durable metal mounts for an easy installation. However, for applications with limited space there are also ones that come in a bar shape which can be installed on narrow applications. Thanks to the easy installation procedure with LED work lamps, they are an easy modification to make for almost any application. Wiring is also easy as they only require a 12v power source to operate and can withstand 24v applications as well; with just two wires to connect to, it’s as easy as cake.
