Connecting radios all over the world

Mimer SoftLine Icom Marineradio

Some customers do not want to use computers at all. They prefer the standard control head. But in order to have a very long cable connection between radio and control head, they need to go digital. Mimer SoftLine will do this for them.

This application is specially made for the Icom marine radios.

Remote your marine radio over a long distance without using a PC

Through the use of a specially designed version of the Mimer SoftLine Network Interface, a remote control can be set up for an Icom marineradio (M423, M506, M400BB) and its standard hand held Command Microphone.

With Mimer SoftLine the radio and its Command Microphone can be separated by a standard CAT5/CAT6  cable of up to 150m. By connecting through a standard LAN, WAN or the Internet, the distance can be “Around the world”.

There are control rooms that are not allowed to use copper wire connections and not to use PC´s for the dispatchers. For such cases a fibre connection can be set up between radio and command microphone.

Compared to having a radio on your desk the benefit of remote control is that the radio can be placed in a high up place in the building and there use a short antenna cable, for low loss. It can also be placed at a different site, closer to the shoreline and the ships that you need to communicate with.

SoftLine connection with Icom Marine radio

An Icom IC-M423 marineradio connected via Mimer SoftLine to
a standard Command Microphone, using an IP connection.

The solution also works with radios that have the extension “G” or “GE”. And also with the international types like M422 and M424.

All functions of the radio are available through the remote Command Microphone.

At the radio side, the standard radio microphone and radio front panel can be used in parallel with the remote.

An extra speaker can be connected at the remote end for a better audio that the built in speaker in the command microphone can give.
