Are there sources online for more information about your products?

All our products are featured on the website with datasheets and brochures where relevant. In addition, we have a Resource Library which contains datasheets, technical notes, brochures and other product information. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, please contact your local Codan Support centre.

What are the power requirements for your radios?

The majority of Codan radios are designed for 12 V DC nominal operation, with relatively low power consumption. This allows direct operation from vehicular, storage battery or solar sources. We also supply adaptors and mains power supplies allowing operation from wide-range DC inputs, or universal (100-240 V AC nominal) mains. Our high power amplifiers require mains power to operate.
