Manufacturers need to:
- Hear and be heard in loud, noisy environments
- Quickly respond to emergencies and accidents or malfunctions
- Improve response time
- Adapt to changing plant conditions
- Reduce operating costs
- Enhance safety
The top digital two-way radios trusted by manufacturers are the Motorola XPR 3000e series, SL 7000e series and XPR 7000e series.
Many manufacturing organizations choose these radios due to their ability to operate on simple and complex system configurations, have exceptional ruggedness and durability and IP 68 ratings for water submersibility and tight seals against dust intrusion – allowing them to operate even in the harshest working conditions.
Here are the top features of MOTOTRBO for Manufacturing and how they can improve your operations:
This means that no matter how a person talks into the microphone, they will be heard clearly. Whether they are a line worker talking at a loud manufacturing plant, an administration staff in a quiet office, or maintenance personnel who don’t speak directly into the microphone, the Automatic Gain Control (ADC) compensates for their volume and adjusts it so that you hear them clearly on the other end.
No matter where you are in the plant, you can rest assured that you will hear and be heard clearly.
When emergencies happen, the Transmit Interrupt feature allows a manager or dispatcher to interrupt someone else’s broadcast on a channel when it is in use. The transmit interrupt suite includes voice interrupt, emergency voice interrupt and data over voice interrupt – allowing the supervisor to relay critical messages the second they need to ensuring priority messages get through.
Your team can connect with colleagues when they may not be able to talk. MOTOTRBO display radios with full keypads have built-in messaging capabilities that allow you to quickly share information. Users can create, send and receive messages from other users and talk groups. Messages can be freeform or one of pre-programmed quick texts.
Safety Features – Lone Worker & Man Down
A manufacturing or warehousing operation can pose many risks. That’s why MOTOTRBO radios can call for help when you are not able to. The Lone Worker application is designed to protect people who work remotely at a job site. The end user is required to use the two-way radio to send a response at pre-programmed interval times as a confirmation that everything is well. If the user fails to send a confirmation, the system will then initiate, escalating alarms and alerts to a response talk group.
Using a radio’s accelerometer, the Man Down application can detect when a radio has detected a horizontal tilt, lack of movement by the end user or both for a pre-set amount of time. When the timer expires, the radio sends a warning to the user. If the warning is not promptly acknowledged, the radio will initiate an emergency call to a response team and send audio and visual beacons to help locate the user.
Longer Battery Life
Motorola’s proprietary IMPRES battery technology establishes a connection between the battery and charger. This allows the charger to recondition the battery as needed, extending battery life, cycle count and performance.
You can count on Motorola’s MOTOTRBO rugged two-way radios to help increase production time and safety while enhancing communication across the manufacturing plant. Many of the radio features are perfect for manufacturing, such as clear audio, safety alerts and longer battery life.
If you need superior two-way radio features for your manufacturing plant, look no further than Motorola’s MOTOTRBO.
