"Our PSR-U and BBx-U Series of public safety repeaters and battery backups continues ADRF's over twenty-year history of developing solutions that meet or exceed the latest standards and code requirements for in-building public safety connectivity," said Dennis Burns, director of public safety at ADRF. "As UL 2524 increasingly becomes a requirement across jurisdictions, our products enable building owners to ensure they receive the certificate of occupancy by installing ADRF's UL Certified system now and in the future."

  • PSR-78-9533-U: 2W public safety 700/800 MHz Class A/Class B digital repeater

"It's great to see ADRF become the first to certify their products with the Enhanced UL Certification Mark to UL 2524, second edition, which will help to provide greater clarity and transparency in code compliance determination by AHJs.
