What is a ComHub?

The ComHub stores the wireless base station in a portable, battery-operated, weatherproof case. As such, you can pick up the ComHub and carry it around the work zone with you. You also use the ComHub to connect a two-way radio.

How long do the batteries last in a ComHub?

You can expect up to 24 hours of battery life from the SCH305 ComHub, and up to 12 hours from the SCH310 and SCH310T ComHubs. Refer to the ComHub Tech Specs for more details.

How do I know how much battery power is left in the ComHub?

A status LED next to the power button flashes from 1 to 4 times when the ComHub is powered on. Four flashes indicates a full charge. A single flash means it’s time to charge the ComHub.

How do I charge the ComHub?

Use the provided 12VDC regulated wall adapter or the ComHub charging cable in your Sonetics Charging Case. For details on vehicle charging, refer to the ComHub Support.

How do I make sure I’m getting the most range out of my Sonetics system?

Make sure you position the ComHub upright (there are stickers on the case to help you orient it). Raise it up off the ground as much as is safe, and try to have as few obstacles between the ComHub and the headsets as possible (clear line of sight).

How is the tethering different with the SCH305-BT vs. the SCH305?

For tethering to work with a SCH305-BT, the ComHub needs to be set up into Channel Mode: Set up for 2 Channels. This is not needed when you are only using the SCH305 ComHub version. Reason for this, is the addition of the Bluetooth module in the SCH305-BT. You can tether with the SCH305-BT ComHub, but you cannot access the device which is Bluetooth paired to the SCH305-BT from the same channel as the tethered group. The tethered group will be on Channel 2 and the Bluetooth paired device is on Channel 1.

Is Broadcast Mode supported on the SCH305-BT ComHub?

Yes. Broadcast mode functions the same way as with the SCH305 ComHub.

Is Channel Mode supported on the SCH305-BT?

Yes. Channel Mode is supported on the SCH305-BT.

Can I pair my Bluetooth two-way radios to the SCH305-BT?

Currently, the SCH305-BT does not support two-way radio transmit and receive functions.

Why can’t I pair my Bluetooth device to the SCH305-BT?

A few things you can try are the following:
1. Turn off all Bluetooth enabled devices around you.
2. Power cycle the SCH305-BT.
3. If you have multiple SCH305-BT ComHub’s, make sure you have one powered ON at a time.

Why won’t my Bluetooth device pair to the SCH305-BT?

Your device needs to be a cell phone, tablet, or laptop. If you are trying to pair a different device it may not pair to the SCH305-BT.

What Bluetooth Standard does the SCH305-BT use?

Bluetooth 4.0.
