Dematic has released the Vocollect SRX2 modular wireless voice headset.

The Real-time logistics and voice systems provider claims the SRX2 sets an entirely new standard in headset performance, raising the bar in modularity, user experience, hygiene, and investment value.

"Without question, wireless headsets provide a better user experience and reduced maintenance costs compared to wired headsets," Dematic says.

"However in the past, wireless headsets were not modular, meaning the allocation of a headset per operator was a financial challenge. That has now changed."

The Vocollect SRX2 provides the benefits of wireless headsets at a lower cost of ownership because of its modular design allowing a low-cost headband, separate from the microphone, to be allocated to each operator.

Not only does this design reduce the investment cost per operator, it maximises uptime, reduces maintenance costs and enhances hygiene.

Leading retailer Woolworths has been one of the first organisations to use the new SRX2 wireless headset.

"We have seen the business benefits that the original SRX provides from a wireless perspective," says the company’s Wayne Ellison.

"The SRX2 with its modular design allows Woolworths the opportunity to realise the benefits of wireless, while being able to allocate a headband to each operator.

"We believe this will result in greater user acceptance from a hygiene personalisation perspective and a reduction in time lost during our hand-out/hand-in process," Ellison says.

In addition, the SRX2 has made asset management easier with the ability to track and manage all headsets and batteries in the DC or warehouse.

Increased intelligent battery management can predict battery shift life months in advance.

When used with Vocollect VoiceCatalyst software, the SRX2 wireless headset also provides 50 percent better noise reduction compared to other leading distribution environment headsets, offering a high-definition audio experience over other commercially available Bluetooth headsets.

With its highly ruggedised yet compact design, the SRX2 will work equally well in any environment including refrigerated, high noise, and fast-moving picking environments.

The Vocollect SRX2 offers these benefits for supply chain organisations:

Reduced cost per operator

Maximised uptime

Improved user productivity

Reduced maintenance costs

Better voice recognition and noise reduction

Enhanced ergonomics and hygiene
