Feb. 10th — Lead time on shipping Analog/Partyline ClearCom products is estimated at 16-18 weeks * once the factory is given an order (which will also secure your place in line).
This longer than normal lead time is a result of the global chip shortage, and affects all manufacturers. Clear-Com is constantly working to source new components. Unfortunately, the underlying chip shortage is likely to continue into 2023. While we all hope its resolved sooner, we encourage customers to plan for extended lead times.
* Due to the rapidly changing situation, lead time can change within hours of an update. Sometimes it can be extended due to supply chain issues like delayed/missing packages of critical parts.
Available while supplies last, replacement is the PT-8.
The PT-7 push-to-talk microphone is a rugged, CB-styled hand held mic for use with intercom stations. It is especially useful when used with speaker stations such as the KB series. A "dummy load" across the earpiece pins on the connector provides the proper impedance, so that the station's speaker will operate normally when the PT-7 is connected. Provided with a mounting clip and a 5' coiled cord with heavy-duty strain relief.
Push-to-talk switch on handset (so you can leave the beltpack latched on)
4-pin Female XLR connector
5' coil cord
Please note that in order to have a fully functioning intercom system you need to connect your headset to a beltpack which is in turn connected to a main station which supplies power to the system. Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions.
