The Main Features of Motorola XTS2500 Series Portable Radios

The XTS2500’s uncompromising durability is founded in its design, meeting  Military specifications 810, C, D, E and F, while also providing protection against the elements with redundant silicon seals and using MacroBlend housing material to ensure against damaging shock, vibrations, UV radiation, dust and electrostatic discharge.   By delivering superior audio quality, caller’s messages are received crisp and clear and without all the radio “noise” associated with typical working environments. The advanced emergency functionality features include: Emergency Keep Alive—ensuring emergency calls are not dropped even is the radio power switches off; Emergency with voice to follow—allows for communication without having to press the PTT button; and in digital mode other users in your talk-group have the capability to hear and see your ID in their display when an emergency call has been initiated.

The XTS2500 can be used with the following systems: SMARTNET, SmartZone, and ASTRO 25. A great feature if multiple systems are in play and organizations are trying to decrease costs where possible. This one radio works with all three! Users also have the capability to program over the air while in the field, saving both time and increasing efficiencies.
