Cuisine de France selects EMR radio communications for Grangecastle manufacturing site
Leading voice and data infrastructure provider, EMR Integrated Solutions today announced a major contract with bread and confectionery provider, Cuisine de France to provide an on-site radio communications network at their manufacturing facility in Grangecastle, Co Dublin.
The system based on the Motorola technology platform provides high quality, resilient radio coverage between staff across the large, multi-building complex which comprises food processing, manufacturing and storage facilities. A multi-channel operation for separate user group communications is also provided.
Commenting on the deal, Stuart Gavin of Cuisine de France’s purchasing department said:
“EMR recommended this system as it provided enhanced coverage levels throughout the complex. The system also supported future expansion when required which was an important feature as the site was expanding when we first purchased this system. The system has become essential for providing site wide staff communications and we were very impressed how the portable radios coped in the chilled storage areas. We heavily rely on this system that EMR recommended as it addresses our critical present and future site wide staff communication requirements.”
Twin Motorola DR3000 system repeaters were installed in key areas within the complex. This provides four operational channels for separate communication channels for the dedicated user groups. The new digital transmissions provides enhanced levels of in building radio coverage ensuring staff were kept in contact at all times.
The cold storage staff found this system extremely beneficial.
As the staff entered the fridge storage areas the radios were found to provide full system operation even in -16 degrees temperature levels. This ensured staff communication was never compromised in this high risk operation area.
Staff safety was also a major concern with the ability within the system for future upgrades for staff man down or lone worker safety systems when required. EMR recommended the new Motorola MOTOTRBO digital radio system for this system solution as this system catered for all of these system requests and also allowed for future system expansion within the complex.
The lightweight Impres battery packs allowed radios to be carried within the staff protective clothing for easy operation of the radios in this area even while wearing heavy protective clothing and gloves.
