Gentex introduces WCEP hearing systems
Gentex has developed several new hearing protection and communication products featuring its Wire-Free Communication Earplugs (WCEP), the company announced on 27 October.
Designed for aircrew requiring double hearing protection, the WCEP improves passive noise attenuation and eliminates snag, breakage, and hot spots associated with earplug wires, while simplifying helmet donning and doffing. The wire-free earplugs come with Comply Canal Tips and provide a NRR of 30 decibel.
Gentex is also set to introduce the Mini Dynamic Oxygen Mask microphone, developed to replace the existing M-169/AIC oxygen mask microphone. The system’s design allows for greater operator flexibility with microphone placement.
Gentex Aircrew Helmet Noise Reduction technology, which is designed to reduce noise exposure for aircrew flying in louder aircraft and during longer missions; and the Gentex Low Profile Particulate Respirator, a half-mask respirator that offers 99.97% filtration efficiency against a wide range of particulate contaminants encountered by doorgunners and other rear aircrew, will also be introduced.
