The Portacom COM-40FC is a low-cost, complete wired intercom system that serves the production communication needs of video and film, broadcast sporting events, cable access television, houses of worship, and educational institutions.

The COM-40FC is a two-channel wired intercom system, consisting of a central power supply, 4 belt packs, featuring a volume control knob and call light, mic on/off and A/B channel select buttons, a branch box, and 4 dual, noise cancelling headsets with an adjustable dynamic microphone. A rugged, foam lined carrying case holds the system in place for transportation and storage.

The COM-40FC offers support of up to twenty headsets, made possible by the use of separately purchased, additional branch-box expander units, and connections are made via standard 3-pin XLR cables.

    PortaCom COM-40FC reviews

    COM-40FC 4 Headset Intercom System is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exelecent Choice in Intercoms We use these headsets in a Masonic Temple Theater that seats about 200. They connect the sound table, light panel, spot light room, prompter and director. The system is far superior to anything we have previously used and we are considering expanding the system. The page button and LED are next to useless because they are located on the belt box where they cannot be seen. If the page would sound a beep in the head set it would be much more useful. If you are considering ordering this set ask for the single ear head sets. That allows you to hear sound near you without having to lift the ear set off your ears.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect We are using these at our church for our switcher and camera operators. We were needing something good on a budget and these are ideal. Took them out of the box, connected them, and they work great and have great audio quality. They appear to be well-made and sturdy. I highly recommend them.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed! Broke a few times I teach a Broadcast class and I thought these would be great, but to only find out that they break very easy! We have 3 broken headsets and 2 broken transmitters. I'm very disappointed on the quality. Not worth the money!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Solution for us! We use this product in our Church so the video switcher operator can talk with all the camera operators. This does a great job at cancelling out outside noise as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Intercom for Church We use this intercom for our video switcher and camera people. The audio quality is excellent. The headsets allow you to hear very well even in loud surroundings.
