Rugged, universal digital

One of the risks of transitioning from analog technology to digital technology is the transition period, which may disrupt business operations. In order to make the transition process easy and smooth, DP540 can run in digital and analog modes. In this way, as the business transitions to digital technology, radio users can use their new DP540 radio for operation and communication at work.


Compact, robust design

Even in the saltiest seaports and ports, it can withstand harsh conditions and resist corrosion. It has excellent audio output and unique features, such as voice announcement customization, allowing users to use their own audio files to customize the default voice announcement language. DP540 is also built for a multilingual working environment, with special audio profiles designed to provide enhanced audio quality when speaking languages with a unique rolling "R" such as French or Dutch.


Voice activated emission (VOX) function

DP540 is equipped with a voice-activated transmission (VOX) function, allowing users to operate their radio without pressing a push-to-talk (PTT) button. In addition to compatible handsets designed for hands-free operation, medical staff and other basic staff can also keep their hands clean.

Laurent Tribout, Director of Indirect Sales for Motorola Solutions in Sub-Saharan Africa, said: “In today’s economic situation, small and medium-sized companies have been under pressure to deliver more and faster. Always maintain a sense of cost reduction." "With this in mind, we have developed a reasonably priced radio with all the necessary functions."
