Wireless and fibre communication products

The well respected company Neutrik have entered The Formula One racing championship 2016. Actually, not quite, however Neutrik have been involved with Riedel communications experts with the installation of it's communication platform for all race tracks in 2016. This enormous complex task ensures FIA race control, stewards, the Safty Car, the Medical Car, the pit crews and the drivers – which totals to more than 2,000 walkie-talkies in operation during a race weekend.

According to Neutrik's news release... "Riedel’s wired intercoms for the Formula One employ a special ruggedized fiber cable with Neutrik's opticalCON connectors.

Riedel’s wired intercoms for the Formula One employ a special ruggedized fiber cable with Neutrik's opticalCON connectors. If you lay a cable for a permanent installation it is likely to continue working without any assistance. But if you lay a cable, remove it, ship it and re-install it 20 times in a year, it really needs to be heavily ruggedized. In total there is around 8 km – 12 km of cable weaving around the garages, pit lane and the race official's control room in a fully redundant system, meeting the zero-failure standards expected by Riedel's high-profile clients. This redundant fibre ring is set up by Riedel technicians and is constantly monitored before, during and after a race so that if something fails Riedel can react immediately".
