The VX-820 series of commercial handheld radios are IP57 submersible and come standard with a powerful 2000 mAh Li-Ion battery for long talk times. A 3000 mAh Li-Ion battery is also available. Designed for use in hazardous environments, the devices each exceed the military specification 810C/D/E/F. They are claimed to be the smallest digital APCO25 radios in the world.
Radio frequency tagging has reached the motor vehicle manufacturing industry but not just as a guide to warehouse parts: the latest tags are actually attached to components inside a working car
Smart and adaptive antenna technologies are entering a stage of full market acceptance, according to a report from West Technology Research Solutions (WTRS), a Silicon Valley-based research, publishing and consultancy company focused on emerging wireless technologies.
