The DP4801 ranked as the most feature rich and powerful model in Motorola’s ground breaking MOTOTRBO range, helping the company to define the standard for digital two way radio in the 21st Century.
Now Motorola has taken another step forward, repackaging the DP4801 as the DP4801e, and pushing performance to even greater levels with an expanded range of features.
The DP4801e features a built-in four line colour screen, menu navigation buttons and a 12 key number pad. A redesigned antenna provides 16 per cent better signal coverage, making the DP4801e one of the most reliable two way radios available for communicating across a wide area. It also supports the new IMPRES smart energy system, boosting battery life up to a maximum of 29 hours, so no one has to worry about recharging in the middle of a long shift.
In terms of audio quality, the DP4801e is amongst the best digital handheld radios available on the market, with an all new remodelled IMPRES amplifier providing better consistency and clarity in sound than ever before. This is paired with intelligent volume control and advanced SINC+ noise cancellation, meaning call volume is automatically adjusted to take account of environmental noise, while the background interference is digitally cleaned from the signal. All of this adds up to outstanding audio no matter where you are, making the DP4801e perfect for use around heavy machinery or at large, busy events.
The DP4801e also provides an excellent option for coordinating and supervising communication amongst large teams. It provides up to 1000 communication channels, with straightforward scanning to find one free when you need to make a call. It also supports group and private calling, so messages can be targeted at specific individuals or teams. Work order ticketing and message dispatch allow coordinators to allocate tasks and relay messages between different groups, plus it can be used to send text messages and even connect to a phone system.
It also features enhanced geo-location tracking, with multiconstellation support for both the GPS and GLONASS satellite systems. The use of both increases accuracy, perfect when you need to find a colleague on a large site or respond quickly to an emergency call. In addition, the DP4801e also supports Bluetooth 4.0, which can be paired with Bluetooth beacons to enable indoor location tracking. All firmware updates can be run automatically via built in WiFi.
The DP4801e is ideal in tough environments such as construction, manufacturing and heavy industry, with a tough outer chassis and an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance, meaning it can survive being fully submerged in water. It also comes fully loaded with safety features including a system override Emergency Button, a Lone Worker monitoring system and Man Down, which uses an accelerometer to detect falls and trigger alarms automatically.
