The Series 3800 Vehicle Intercom System is engineered to solve the problem of communicating in high-noise environments with a mobile vehicle platform. Fire apparatus, rescue vehicles, ambulances, command and control vehicles, airline deicers and paint stripers are but a few applications that currently benefit from the Series 3800 system.


The U3801 is a simple headset station, used to expand the intercom system beyond the Master Station. It is designed for use at the end of a series of headset stations, as there are no available connections for “daisy-chaining” additional modules.


It includes one headset jack and headset listen level control, as well as one system input connector for running a C38-xx Jumper Cord from another intercom module.


With a modular design, rugged and weather-resistant enclosures, and functional versatility, the Series 3800 intercom system is an ideal solution for any mobile environment requiring crisp, clear communication and effective hearing protection.
