Analogue/Digital – Get all the benefits of digital, including better voice quality, better range and better battery life – but retain compatibility with your existing radio fleet while giving yourself the freedom to migrate to the latest technology at your own pace.

Automatic Gain Control – Automatically compensates for changes in voice level, whether you are speaking softly or loudly, turning your head, or moving the microphone further away from your mouth.

Transmit Interrupt Capability – Enables a supervisor to interrupt a DP1400 user to deliver critical communication exactly when and where it’s needed.

Compatible with Radio Management Suite – Program your radios quickly and efficiently, with Motorola Solutions Radio Management tool. Radios can be programmed in batches to a standardised template, giving error-free results and optimised performance.

Dual Capacity Direct Mode – Utilise the power of the 2-slot TDMA DMR standard to increase calling capacity and minimise licensing costs.

Encrypted Communications – Keep your communications from being intercepted and your channels secure with 16-bit encryption.

Lone Worker – DP1400 can help protect those working on their own by regularly prompting the user to press a button on the radio.  If the user does not respond within a specified length of time, a supervisor or dispatcher is notified that there may be a problem.

IP54 Rated – Dustproof and splashproof, so you can work with confidence in challenging environments.
