5 Crucial Facts for Motorola HT1000 Two Way Radio Users
If you’re a user of the Motorola HT1000 two way radio, you know it’s one of the toughest two way radios out there and has been used for years in some of Canada’s toughest industries – from oil and gas, to transportation and manufacturing, just to name a few.
What you may not know, however, is that the Motorola HT1000 is no longer in production, and has since been replaced by the equally tough MOTOTRBO™ Motorola XPR 7550, and most recently the MOTOTRBO™ Motorola XPR 7550e.
There are many advantages to this upgrade, including:
- Better Range – Digital two way radios have an increased range to help with better communication with your team. The Motorola MOTOTRBO™ XPR 7550e has even better range, with more than even the first digital two way radio models. Ensure every corner of the workplace is covered with this radio.
- Better Use in Noisy Environments – Tough industries are usually loud industries – a combination of equipment and machines can make it difficult to be heard clearly. But not with digital two way radio. A number of digital radios have a feature known as Intelligent Audio, which automatically reduces background noise, and increases voice levels, to ensure the message gets through the first time. And, when this radio is paired with remote speaker mic accessories, there is often the added feature of windporting technology – minimizing both wind and weather noise and allowing clear messages in difficult weather conditions.
- Longer Battery Life – With the right batteries, you can expect up to 29 hours of battery life from digital two way radios. So, if you forget to charge your battery, or your team works long shifts, you can rest assured that communication can continue, and employees can stay safe. A bonus feature of digital radios is the IMPRES technology built into a number of MOTOTRBO™ batteries. These batteries automatically recondition themselves for optimal performance for your team. Additionally, overcharging is not an issue, and end-of-life displays are part of its features.
- Better Durability – Tough industries need tough equipment that can stand up to the demands of the job. While the Motorola HT1000 got the job done, they XPR7550e provides you with so much more. These two way radios are not only tested for drops, shocks and vibrations, but they also have ratings up to IP68 – making them fully dust tight and waterproof up to six feet for two hours. These radios can handle whatever Canadian industries can throw at it.
- Intrinsically Safe Options – Just like with the Motorola HT1000, a number of users rely on intrinsically safe two way that are required in their hazardous work environments. The MOTOTRBO™ XPR7550 CSA IS option offers intrinsically safe communication that you know and love from your Motorola HT1000.
