WMS 470s new automatic frequency setup function immediately finds and displays all available channels, making the system ideal for less experienced users to operate. Before opening a channel, the pilot tone function will prevent unwanted startup noise the receiver will only open the audio if the pilot tone is detected.

The transmitters are powered using a single alkaline, lithium or Ni-MH rechargeable battery, providing up to 14 hours of use with lithium batteries. The WMS 470 handheld microphone has a built-in dipole antenna to ensure reliable transmission with 50 mW output power, even if the user covers the antenna with their hand.
Our 400 Series has become one of the most successful wireless systems on the market and the WMS 470 continues that lineage, continued Fritz.
