When choosing a hand-held two way radio for your factory, there are various factors to consider.
If you operate a light manufacturing factory, such as a printing works, then the atmosphere will be fairly clean.
For such situations, a radio such as the Hytera PD405 is ideal.
Robust and reliable, the Hytera PD405 handheld digital radio offers a simple communication solution, ideal for users operating in manufacturing, facilities management or education environments.
Can communicate with existing older analogue radios
The Hytera PD405 has long battery life
DMR Digital technology ensures clear voice quality.
If you are likely to be operating in more harsh factory environments, then we would recommend you let us advise you on the best options available.
Typically for harsh environments such as wet conditions, you will want a radio with a high IP or Ingress Protection rating.
One such radio, which we would recommend is the Entel DN400, which is an IP68 rated handheld radio.
What this means is that the radio can be dropped into water and survive*
* Up to 2M deep for 30 minutes.
Another consideration, is are you likely to be operating in environments where there is a potentially explosive atmosphere.
An example of such a location is the battery room of a ship, where potentially flammable gases are realeased while the ships batteries are being recharged.
Environments where there is a potential risk of explosion, require intrinsically safe (ATEX) rated radios.
Intrinsically safe radios have specially sealed cases and components, that prevent an electrical spark being created by the radio.
