A high performance digital signal processor (DSP) converts the received alphanumeric message to easily comprehensible speech. The message can be read on the display simultaneously. A user programmable address name is displayed in the status line along with the message timestamp. Allowing to grasp immediately which address an alert was received on and on which address. The HURRICANE DUO offers 64 RICs with 4 sub addresses each.
Housed inside the same case used by the well-known Swissphone analogue receivers, the HURRICANE DUO inherits their robustness. Ease of use has been a design principle from the start. Texts as well as icons help to navigate through the user menu. The one-hand operation featured in previous models has been retained. In fact it is even possible to operate Swissphone receivers wearing gloves.
