The Yealink W59R Handset: How It’s The Best Choice for Industrial EnvironmentsGrant Maye
Industrial environments – including factories and construction areas – are prone to dust, humidity, moisture, and harsh conditions. In these rigorous areas where work is time sensitive and emergencies can occur, quick and seamless communication is of the utmost importance. Yealink recently released their W59R Ruggedized DECT Handset that has been carefully designed to provide enhanced wireless communication in even the harshest work conditions. The W59R’s vast feature set, tough casing, and Ingress Protection (IP) rating make it one of the best industrial options on the market.
Shock, Dust, and Water Resistant
The W59R has been certified with a high IP rating of 67, verifying it as being fully “dust tight” and protected against full water immersion for up to 30 minutes. In addition to resisting dust and water, its rubber exterior protects the handset from dropping, slipping, and scratching, all which can happen frequently in these environments. The W59R can secure itself from a fall of up to 2.5 meters (8.2 feet), proving itself as extremely durable.
In an industrial facility, you would be hard pressed to find a worker who stays put in one place for the duration of the workday. Because the job demands mobility, it is imperative to choose a device that allows for and enables roaming. The W59R is fully compatible with the Yealink W80 Multi-Cell System, which allows users to roam with seamless handover of calls. To keep hands free to perform operations, the W59R pairs with industry-leading Bluetooth handsets and also fits into a belt clip.
Alarm & Vibration
More times than not, these industrial locations are quite noisy. Because of this, the Yealink W59R features a vibration alarm so workers do not miss important calls. The handset also features a series of loud alarm functions, including push-buttom alarms, no-movement alarm, man-down alarm, and running alarm – all with the intent to minimize safety risks. An administrator can quickly configure the different types of alarms for different team members. Emergency calls will be sent automatically if an emergency occurs.
The Yealink W59R also comes equipped with:
- 1.8″ TFT color screen with intuitive user interface
- HD voice & flexible noise reduction technology
- Up to 28 hours of talk time (18 hours with a Bluetooth headset)
- Keypad backlight and keypad lock
