11-85-0000 Hand Held Transmitter

UHF low power POCSAG pocket paging transmitter with in-built encoder and transmissions to provide numeric, alpha-numeric and tone-only POCSAG paging.


The 11-85 is a compact paging transmitter suitable for hand-held or wall mounted use. Each button on the unit can be programmed with a message. Pressing a button will transmit the message associated with that button to a pocket pager where it will display on the screen. The units are available on VHF and UHF versions.

Transmitters configured to send paging messages can be utilized in a wide variety of applications such as personal and commercial security, medical alert, paging in restaurants and bistros, and customer assistance in supermarkets or hardware stores.

Control applications

The 11-85 can also be programmed to send control instructions to specialized paging receivers capable of controlling relays. Using this product combination the transmitter can be used for remote machinery control. The Salcom 12-88 and 12-84E are examples of relay receivers.

One, two and four button units, four additional digital inputs are available for use as required.


The transmitters can be programmed to suit application requirements using Salcom product support software and the accompanying programming adaptor.


A front panel LED indicates when the transmitter is operating. A user-replaceable 9V alkaline battery gives a life of hundreds of transmissions with a range of up to 500 metres.
