The USAlert WatchDog is a 2-Tone Voice Pager operational in the VHF or UHF frequency bands. Ruggedly designed for use by first-responders and others in the public safety markets, the WatchDog is available in 1, 2, or 5 channel models. The pager features a 16 character true alphanumeric LCD for displaying the date and time an alert was received, programmed text identifying the alerting address, the number of the alert, and many operational changes configured from the front panel buttons. The WatchDog is IP66 certified, meaning it protects against any dust intrusion and powerful jets of water from any direction. The WatchDog Pager comes with a 2 year warranty and an option for 5 years. The WatchDog is built in the USA.
The Alphanumeric Pager Nylon Carrying Case is a soft but durable alternative to the alphanumeric holster that comes standard with every pager. The excellent abrasion resistance of the synthetic nylon material makes it an attractive accessory to any of the alphanumeric pagers while providing a high degree of protection during every day use. The nylon case has a top flap that when attached to the front of the case by a Velcro strip holds the pager securely in place. Detaching the Velcro allows the user to easily remove the pager from the case and view incoming or existing messages. A rear flap is designed to fit over a belt and be held in place by snapping together a pair of metal fasteners. The black nylon case comes in one size and is fully compatible with the complete line of Alphanumeric pagers.
The USAlert Rechargeable Batteries for the WatchDog Pager are included with each WatchDog Pager as the primary power source, but as with any battery type, they eventually do wear out and have reduced performance over time. Battery life may be affected after 12 - 18 months of use, so it is recommended that the batteries be replaced at regular intervals to maintain optimum pager performance. The WatchDog Pager uses three “AAA” sized NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) rechargeable batteries, each rated at 1100 mA/hr. The NiMH rechargeable battery type is the preferred power source for small electronic devices that are used frequently and require high power. Replacement batteries are typically shipped in packs of three. Some alternate rechargeable batteries or batteries with a lower capacity rating have been found to create pager performance issues, so replacing your batteries with 1100 mA/hr capacity batteries is recommended.
The USAlert Rechargeable Batteries for the WatchDog LT Pager consist of three individual “AAA” NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) cells and come standard with each WatchDog LT Pager. A rechargeable NiMH battery type is preferred for small electronic devices that require strong power and are used frequently. Although the NiMH batteries are rechargeable, their useful life decreases gradually over time. Battery performance may be reduced after 12-18 months of use, so replacing the batteries at regular intervals is strongly recommended. The WatchDog LT Rechargeable Batteries are rated at 1100 mA/hr and are typically shipped in packs of three. Lower capacity batteries or batteries of lesser quality have been found to create performance issues in the WatchDog LT Pager. Replacing the Rechargeable Batteries with new batteries of the same 1100 mA/hr capacity ensures continued pager operation at peak efficiency.
The USAlert Alpha 2 Pager Holster with integrated belt clip comes standard as part of the Alpha 2 Pager package, but individual replacement holsters are available if the original unit is ever damaged or lost. Made of rugged and durable polycarbonate material, the Alpha 2 Holster has a semi-transparent smoke-black color that makes an attractive combination with the black housing of the Alpha 2 Pager. Messages can be read through the transparent face of the holster or the pager can be easily removed from the holster if that method of reading messages is preferred. The holster is a common design and can be used interchangeably with the USAlert Alpha 2 and Alpha 4 pagers.
The USAlert Alpha 2 Pager uses a large 2-line LCD to display messages at 18 characters per line. The pager can handle up to 60 messages with each message capable of containing 500 characters. 7000 characters maximum can be stored in memory. The fully synthesized and ruggedly built Alpha 2 uses the POCSAG coding format and is available in VHF, UHF, Midband, or 900 MHz frequency bands. It has 6 capcode addresses and 24 sub-addresses, separate wideband and narrowband compliant receiver boards, and supports 8 languages.
The USAlert Alpha 2 Pager Programmer includes a programming fixture with the label “UB-25”, a standard USB cable, and Alpha 2 programming software. The programming software for the Alpha 2 is also used for programming the USAlert NP35 and NP40 numeric pagers. Pager selection in the programming software is determined by designations for the Alpha 2 (J25), NP35 (J8) and NP40 (J7) pagers.
The USAlert NP35 Pager Belt Clip comes standard with every NP35 Numeric Pager. It is designed to allow easy removal of the pager from a belt to read or recall messages. Since it is detachable, individual Belt Clips can be ordered to replace any that may have been damaged or lost without having to send the pager back for repair. The Belt Clip can be released from the locking mechanism by using a small flat head screwdriver or similar device to pull the square plastic tab at the top of the clip away from the pager while also pushing up on the bottom of the Belt Clip. To attach a Belt Clip, fit it into the semi-circular slot on the back of the NP35 and slide it down until it “clicks” into place.
The USAlert NP35 is a fully synthesized numeric pager with a top-mounted 12 digit display. The pager has all the features and performance of the USAlert NP40 numeric pager, the difference being a top-mounted versus a front-mounted display. The NP35 uses POCSAG coding technology, operates in the VHF, UHF, Midband, or 900 MHz frequency bands, and has separate receiver boards for wideband and narrowband channel spacing. The separate narrowband board not only makes the NP35 narrowband capable, but also narrowband compliant. The pager has 4 capcode addresses, can store up to 20 messages, and contains 20 canned messages with programmable text. Power for the NP35 comes from a single standard “AAA” alkaline battery with an expected battery life of about 60 days under normal operating conditions.
The USAlert NP35 Pager Programmer consists of a programming fixture labeled UB-08, a standard USB cable, and NP35 programming software. The USB cable connects to an operational USB port on the computer and to the NP35 programming fixture. Once attached, the green power LED on the fixture near the USB connection should light. The NP35 programming software is also used to program the USAlert Alpha 2 and NP40 pagers. The NP35 is designated as “J8” in the software, the Alpha 2 as “J25” and the NP40 as “J7”.
The USAlert NP40 Numeric Pager Holster is included as a standard item of every NP40 pager, but is also available individually as a replacement if the original is ever damaged or lost. Made of the same durable and rugged black polycarbonate material as the NP40 housing, the holster has a built-in clip that attaches securely to a belt. The pager slides into the holster and is held there solidly by “snapping” into place. The NP40 can be easily removed from the holster to view any new messages or review previous messages. With its open-face design, messages can also be easily read with the pager still remaining in the holster.
The USAlert NP40 is a 12-digit Numeric Pager with a front-mounted display. The pager can hold up to 20 messages in memory and supports 4 capcode addresses. The POCSAG coded NP40 is available in VHF, UHF, Midband, or 900 MHz frequency bands, is synthesized, and has separate receiver boards for wideband and true narrowband operation. The NP40 is identical to the USAlert NP35 numeric pager with the exception being a top-mount display on the NP35 and a front-mount display on the NP40.
The USAlert NP40 Pager Programmer consists of a programming fixture labeled as UB-07, a standard USB cable, and NP40 programming software. The programming software is also used to program the USAlert Alpha 2 and NP35 pagers. Programming the NP40 from the three available pager types is determined by selecting the appropriate pager designation – J7 for the NP40, J8 for the NP35, and J25 for the Alpha 2.
