Motorola MTP850Motorola MTP850: The standard in TETRA radio
Over the course of its history, Motorola has created several two-radios that have become legends by setting global standards. The Motorola MTP850 TETRA two-way radio belongs among them.
Just like its big sisters, the Motorola MTP850S, the MTP850 BOS TETRA two-way radio, the explosion-protected MTP850 EX ATEX TETRA two-way radio and the MTP3250 (the absolute high-end in TETRA radio), the MTP850 is most useful when operated with a TETRA cell (like the Motorola MTS1 TETRA cell).
Generally speaking, most TETRA two-way radios can also work in so-called back-to-back mode, i.e. with the radios connecting directly, instead of via a TETRA cell. This function is intended as a fallback, in case the TETRA cell malfunctions or is no longer in range. However, the radio's full set of functions (man-down function, high-security radio connection, etc. etc.) is only available within a TETRA cell.
Our industrial customers appreciate these MTP850 functions most:
- Top-level communication security
The MTP850's high-security encryption is exceptionally effective, enabling secure communication when used in combination with the administrator's management of the TETRA cell itself and the cell's network-access permission settings. TETRA radio had been superior to the more innovative DMR technology in this area. However, the arrival of Motorola's Connect Plus technology (including user-managed DMR cells) has now created parity in this area, too.
The MTP850's air interface is encrypted in accordance with standards set by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).
- High-resolution display
The Motorola MTP850's screen features a resolution of 130 x 130 pixels and displays 64,000 colours, so you can view documents or even building plans. What at first glance seems like a "nice-to-have" feature becomes interesting when this two-way radio is connected to control software like EcoEMOS, in the automotive sector. If you're looking for an automatic day/night mode – allowing the display to adjust to ambient light levels automatically – we recommend using the Motorola MTP3250.
- Extensive telephone lists
As a full-featured TETRA two-way radio, the Motorola MTP850 fits right in anywhere, even in the largest TETRA cells with many thousands of users. Its poise is obvious, even in very uncluttered telephone lists, which are easily accessible to the user. In many ways, its user interface resembles that of a mobile phone.
- Large buttons
The MTP850's channel selector, volume control, emergency signal button and, last but not least, its PTT button (which must be pressed to transmit) are sensibly sized, allowing the user to operate the radio well, even while wearing conventional work gloves.
- A comprehensive set of functions
The man-down function, connectivity with existing telephone systems, the illuminated keypad and many more practical, very well-thought-out functions – along with Radio-Rental.com's Enterprise Service package – make the MTP850 a superb all-around TETRA two-way radio, the rightful foundation upon which the next generation of devices (MTP850S and MTP3250) is built.
