Designed originally to provide U.S. industry with intercoms which would deliver clear, dependable voice communication under the most severe operating conditions, ADCO units have earned wide acceptance in many segments of the marine industry.

Typical installations are aboard ship—bridge to deck or engine room, control center to diving bell—on offshore oil platforms—and throughout repair yards, dry docks, piers and storage areas.

What makes ADCO intercoms different is their ability to perform efficiently regardless of high ambient noise, weather or temperature extremes. Their heavy-duty cast aluminum cases are built to withstand rough usage—and are both weather and corrosion-proof.

Since each unit is a self-contained station which receives, amplifies and transmits the signal, intercom systems can include many stations over very long distances. Installation is simple and practical: each unit plugs into a nearby AC or DC power source, then is connected by ordinary low voltage 2-wire cable.
