3M’s Peltor OraTac In-Ear system has lightweight hearing protection with ambient, tactical listening. Users can communicate via two-way radios in high noise areas without needing a boom microphone.
With the tactical function mode users can hear conversations, vehicles, warning signal and alarms, while protecting them from sudden impact and other hazardous sounds.
Since the OraTac fits in the ear, it can easily be worn with other personal protective equipment like the full face mask, hard hats, eyewear and powered and supplied air respiratory protection.
It is designed for high noise/high heat duties like manufacturing, smelting and mining.
The OraTac also includes a push-to-talk adapter and a disconnect cable. The cable connects to individual two-way radios and can be changed when a new radio is purchased without replacing the whole system.
