The PANEL-MOUNT IV Intercom is similar to the DUAL-COM II Intercom except it is designed to be permanently mounted in the instrument panel with the passenger plugging into the Remote Station Box. This intercom has a music kill switch and uses the DUAL-COM II radio interface cables.
Incorporated in this intercom is a toggle switch which allows the pilot to select between two transceivers for transmit while monitoring both simultaneously. Radio actuation is controlled by a 6-foot cable with a velcro strap and push-to-talk switch which can be placed in any convenient location within the cockpit. Custom straight cord switch assemblies for mounting can be supplied at no extra charge.
A pilot can contact the ground from one transceiver and notify nearby airports of his location on another. A separate remote station with volume control is supplied and may be mounted for student/copilot operation.
Located on the backside of the main enclosure are separate jacks for music input, push-to-talk cable, copilot Remote Station, Radio 1 and Radio 2. Music cords are also available for an additional charge. Also on the back is a power jack and a power cord is supplied with this intercom as standard equipment.
The entire circuitry is shielded and grounded to effectively eliminate FM and EMI interference. Heavy gauge aluminum with overlapping construction is used for the intercom and remote housing.
