Clear-com HXII-BP 2-Channel Intercom User Station

Clear-com HelixNet HXII-BP beltpack is a two-channel intercom user station hosted by
Arcadia® Central Station or HelixNet HMS-4X*** main station.


The beltpack provides two keysets assignable to any intercom channel and allows multiple channels to be uniquely stacked onto a keyset. The beltpack comes with a headset connection, independent Program Audio level control and a micro-USB Flasher connection to a third-party USB light.

HXII-BP-X5 has connection to dual ear five-pin headsets for split-ear binaural operation, allowing the user to pan the keysets channels between left and right ears.

Local and Central Management Options

HXII-BP can be added to an Arcadia or a HelixNet system host without central configuration or interruption. Front panel allows tactile device configuration and channel assignment.

Roles can be created and applied to one or multiple HXII-BP remotely or locally.
Roles can be edited locally or centrally managed from the Core Configuration ManagerTM (CCM*).

Connectivity and Power Options

HXII-BP connects to Arcadia Central Station or HMS-4X*** main stations with HLI-ET2 Ethernet module over network. Power is supplied to the HXII-BP with Power over Ethernet (PoE) from 3rd party devices. Alternatively, HXII-BP can connect to HelixNet HMS-4X*** main stations over XLR Powerline with power.**

*CCM and Endpoint network connection to HMS-4X requires HLI-ET2
**XLR Powerline is not available for Arcadia. Contact Clear-Com for further information.
***HMS-4X is a legacy product as of 2022
