Product description

Keep your workers safe in the toughest environments! Two-way radio ideal for Oil and Gas industry

The Motorola DP4801 ATEX - UHF is a professional walkie-talkie with ATEX certification, complete with screen and keyboard. The DP4401/DP4801 series are the first on the market with DMR and ATEX technology. They combine the best of the functionality of the radio transmitter-receiver with the latest in digital technology. They seamlessly integrate voice and data, offer easy-to-use enhanced features and provide benefits in essential operations, such as integrated Bluetooth® and Smart Audio.

ATEX certified professional walkie talkies

The DP44xx and DP48xx ATEX series radios are the solution for professionals working in potentially explosive environments and who need to be in contact. The Motorola DP4401 professional walkie-talkies require the prior obtaining of a license for use. This license consists of a UHF frequency code for which only you have the right to use.

What is an ATEX radio?

The ATEX Directive (94/9/EC) requires manufacturers to have their electrical and/or mechanical products that are to be used in potentially explosive atmospheres certified. The products must be classified according to the level of protection offered against the risk that they become a potential source of ignition in explosive atmospheres.

Therefore ATEX certified walkie talkies are designed and manufactured to avoid the ignition of the explosive atmosphere that surrounds them and the certification authorizes them to work with these radiotelephones within potentially explosive areas.

Exceptional sound

The sound quality of the DP4000 series is spectacular, thus providing users with a unique experience while they speak and listen with total clarity. With Intelligent Audio, the volume of the radio is automatically adjusted to compensate for background noise, so workers do not have to adjust their radio volume to avoid losing calls in noisy situations or not to disturb other people when they pass by quiet areas. Increased suppression of background noise filters unwanted external noise, from traffic on the road to the roar of engines.

Simple migration between digital and analogue mode

It is easy to migrate to a digital mode with the radios of the DP4000 series because they operate in both analogue and digital modes. To further facilitate the transition, the mixed dynamic mode repeater functionality speeds up automatic switching between analogue and digital calls. So you can start using radios and repeaters in your current analogue system and, when time and budget allow, go digital at your own pace.

Each channel of the radiotelephone can be configured as a conventional analogue channel or a conventional digital channel. Using the channel selector knob switches from an analogue channel to a digital one. When switching from digital mode to analogue mode, some functions are no longer available. The radiotelephone also has functions available for analogue and digital modes. However, the small differences in how each function works do not affect the operation of the radiotelephone.

How to apply for a licence:

This Motorola two way radio is available to be programmed as:

  • UHF: 403 - 470 MHz

*The maximum range given by manufacturers is based on ideal conditions, such as from hilltop to hilltop, but the range you actually get will be much less if you are in a built-up area. Trees, walls, hills and even the weather can affect the range of your two-way radio. Rule of thumb is that for every 1 watt you will get 1 mile of coverage guarantee, or more depending on the conditions
