A long-awaited new model has appeared in the BNC connection type intercom that has been very popular for many years in various fields.
The new model FD-400A has the same basic features as the previous model, but also includes a set with a newly developed headset with a much improved fit, and uses a highly available AA alkaline battery for the power supply. And improved convenience and performance.
Reliable and convenient everywhere because of wired connection. Easy connection with general-purpose BNC cable
If two or more FD-400A units are connected using a general-purpose BNC cable that can be easily obtained at the shooting site, everyone can immediately start simultaneous calls. The total cable length is 2km and up to 10 units can be connected without the need for a main unit.
The BNC cable connection between units can be done in any way depending on the operating environment, for example, from one FD-400A can be wired in a star shape, or cascade connection and star connection can be mixed.

Because it is a wired system, there is no need to obtain permission for radio waves used in the wireless system, and there is no need to worry about accidents caused by interference with other radio waves or wiretapping.
In addition, it can be used in combination with the previous model FD-300A (Note), so it can be considered as an extension for customers who use the FD-300A.
（Note) When mixing FD-300A and FD-400A, set the mode switch of the mixed FD-400A to “FD-300A mode”. Please note that both modes cannot be used together.
