You probably know this but just incase, we have run into something with the consoles that everyone should be aware of. If you are operating the desk in an environment were 2 way radios are used don’t key them around the desk it will reboot the console. :o

Not really suprising.

No different then turning on the microwave if you are wearing a pacemaker.

I would say the ' industrial grade computer' is shielded in a way... and the radio's you are using are of the approved kind, so that what they are transmitting is not harmful to the body and complies with whatever your authority is on the field of radio and telephony...

Then this mustn't happen.

unless you wrap the console with chicken wire, and drive a stake in the ground, I doubt this is treatable.
Those Motorola Radios are nasty.

There is a known issue on the Light Palette series (only) where keying a motorola near it - particularly with the lid ajar, where the switch PCBs hang. This is due to the PIC processor on them. I've never seen a problem with the Palette series (all USB inside).

I've never seen the PC re-boot. Not in North America. Might be a Motorolla thing or a 50 hz thing on the power supply. (Wait Skip - you're in the States right?) Which desk are you using and which radios? Is this repeatable? We should be able to look at this at the factory.

Don't worry, in Europe they will never approve these Motorolla's because they will probably fry your brain too.

Or... you said you had the same issue? You are in France aren't you? Mmmmm...

This issue has been brought up again in Asia, has anyone else been able to gather more information outside of the factory? Different radio types? Chicken wire solutions? any additional field information is greatly appreciated.
