JVC KENWOOD Announces Cleaning and Disinfecting Guidelines for KENWOOD Radios & Accessories

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, JVC KENWOOD is providing recommended cleaning and disinfecting instructions for KENWOOD radios and accessories to assist with general hygiene guidelines set forth by the World Health Organization (WHO) www.who.int and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) www.cdc.gov.

General Cleaning

1. Remove dust and dirt from surfaces using a clean, soft cloth. If additional effort is required to remove dust and dirt, a non-metallic brush may be used to loosen dirt and debris.

2. Apply a 0.5% detergent-water solution (ex: natural detergent or mild dishwashing soap) or a 70-80% disinfecting ethanol* solution to a clean, soft damp cloth and wipe down all surfaces. If using a detergent-water solution, distilled water is recommended.  
   

3. Dry all surfaces using a soft clean cloth paying close attention to terminals and connectors. 
    
4. Inspect the radio to make sure no cleaning solution remains trapped near connectors or inside terminal cracks or crevices. 

*  The majority of commercially available disinfecting ethanol is diluted to a 70-80% solution. Please check the dilution ratio before using to clean/disinfect radio or accessory surfaces.

Important Note

JVCKENWOOD is unable to, and did not, determine whether any particular cleaning product is effective in removing specific foreign substances from a device, nor whether any disinfectant will remove all germs or viruses. Please consult the chemical manufacturer’s documentation for specifics on cleaning product efficacy with regards to foreign substances (such as viruses).

Motorola Unified Team Communications

Powerful Alone. Game Changing Together.

Whether you work in hospitality, manufacturing, transportation, or any other industrial workplace, your business relies on many disparate systems and technologies to get the job done – each with a unique role to play in the safety, productivity, and efficiency of your operations. Yet different devices, networks, and technology systems can keep business-critical information in silos. The result is limited communication and collaboration, delayed responses to issues, a heavier burden on your IT department, and a different vendor to manage for each solution.

Motorola Solutions has created an end-to-end industrial communications suite to break down the walls between your disparate technologies and systems. Instant and reliable two-way radios unified with broadband communications. Robust video security and analytics. Dynamic incident management and dispatch software. Private LTE to off-load your network data burden. And services to manage it all for you. All of these solutions are powerful alone, but when integrated together, they are game-changing for your business.

COVID-19 Update & Our Commitment to You

To Our ESS Team, Customers, and Suppliers:

With the growing concern surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to take a few minutes to assure you that ESS is taking the necessary precautions to, first and foremost, protect the health of our employees and visitors, as well as best support our clients to minimize any business disruption.

We also ask that our employees, customers and supplier network monitor the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and follow the updates and recommendations around this highly contagious respiratory illness caused by the COVID-19 virus.

ESS is ensuring our teams adhere to our customers’ on-site requirements. We also want to ensure that, as an organization, you are also monitoring and adhering to the CDC advisories and recommendations so that we may continue to keep all of our teams safe during this outbreak.

As service providers we can do our best to ensure that we are performing due diligence to mitigate the spread of this virus.

There are areas to monitor during this time:

Recognizing Symptoms:

  • Coughing, sneezing
  • Fever
  • Shortness of breath, difficulty breathing

Protecting Yourself and others:

The World Health Organization’s (WHO) standard recommendations for the general public to reduce exposure to and transmission of a range of illnesses are as follows, which include hand and respiratory hygiene:

  • Frequently clean hands by using soap or alcohol-based hand sanitizers
  • When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – throw tissue away immediately and wash hands
  • Avoid close contact with anyone with fever and cough
  • If you have a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing seek medical care early and share previous travel history with your healthcare provider

Travel Advisories from CDC:  

Warning Level 3 for Italy, South Korea, Iran, and China (not including Hong Kong) and a Warning Level 2 Travel Advisory for Japan.

Qualify that no one who has returned from a Warning Level 2 or 3 location or who has had close contact with anyone potentially exposed to the COVID-19 virus is being dispatched.

NOTE: If anyone is exhibiting any symptoms, they should stay home until they have recovered. This is a protection for our clients and our co-workers.

Thanks to everyone for working together to get through this.
