ADELAIDE – July 24, 2011 - Multifid Technology Australia, an Adelaide based company and distribution partner of Sensear, the worlds leading high noise communication headset manufacturer, has recently launched its innovative new range of Intrinsically Safe high noise communication devices by Sensear.

“The new Sensear IS Smart Muff is the most advanced of its kind on the market today. No other device can provide the complete hearing protection and communication package whilst maintaining situational awareness for the wearer in high noise environments” said Brett Wilson, Managing Director for Multifid Technology Australia.

Sensears ground breaking – SENS (speech enhancement, noise suppression) technology enables clear and safe communication in high noise environments. The new IS Smart Muff brings this innovative solution to environments where hazardous and potentially combustible materials exist and it is certified to IECEx and ATEX standards.

Beach Energy Limited is the first South Australian based Oil & Gas Company to have trialed and employ the new (IS) Smart Muff in its workplace as part of its overall OH&S strategy.

During recent field trials conducted in the Cooper Basin, Beach Energy employees were able to communicate clearly face to face and from ear muff to ear muff in high noise, up to ranges of 80 meters as a result of the the IS Smart Muffs short range FM communication capability. This is something that could not be achieved previously due to the technology not being available on the market.

According to Beach Energy’s OH&S Officer Mr John Bagley “previously before trialing Sensear in the field environment, we used field signals to communicate and the standard passive hearing protection we were using, made it impossible to communicate verbally in high noise areas which raised the risk that our workers might remove their hearing protection to communicate face to face”.

“Now that we are using the Sensear IS Smart Muffs, we can communicate clearly and more safely in high noise gas type environments, both face to face and over extended distances while minimising the risk of being exposed to potentially damaging high noise which may cause permanent irreversible hearing loss”.

Developed in close collaboration with some of the worlds leading oil and gas companies, the IS Smart Muff underwent 2 years of rigorous testing in some of the most volatile environments to meet the IECEx and ATEX certification standards.

The new IS Smart Muff is a paradigm shift for hearing protection in the Oil and Gas Industry Brett Wilson explained “Now workers can easily and clearly communicate in high noise environments whilst staying protected. Our product solution not only allows workers to communicate effectively, it also allows them to maintain situational awareness which is critical for their safety”.
