Radio repeater technology has been around since the 1950’s, but as technology changes, the repeater is becoming a multi-faceted, system enhancer that delivers the private, secure, instant, long range radio communications that are needed by growing businesses.
Modern, digital repeaters offer many benefits for those who use them. They deliver extended range, multi-site linking, increased system capacity and enhanced privacy and security features.
Vertex’s new EVX-S24 two-way radio has a waterproof rating of IP-67, but what do the numbers mean? Where does the rating come from? And what does it mean for you?
Two-way radios have been widely used since the early 1940’s, but that doesn’t mean the technology behind them hasn’t changed.The introduction of digital two-way radios has brought new features and capabilities that have never been possible with radios before, like text messaging, dual-capacity and transmit interrupt, and traditional analog users are switching to digital to benefit from its advantages.
One of the most common questions we get asked is “How far will I be able to transmit and receive with this radio?”, but unfortunately, there is no simple answer to that question. There are many factors that affect the range of a two-way radio: terrain, environment, the radio’s power and even the antenna.

The Motorola CP200D is the new standard for business radio, replacing the popular CP200. The CP200 used to be one of the most favored radios on the market, up until July of 2013 when Motorola announced its new replacement model. Why did Motorola make the switch? Read on to learn about the many advantages of the CP200D, including its ability to function as either analog or digital depending on the user’s preference.
According to a recent survey conducted by Motorola, the #1 biggest roadblock to successful communication in a manufacturing plant is clarity and coverage. More than 90% of the survey’s participants chose “hearing clearly in noisy conditions” as their top priority for communication in manufacturing plants. This necessity was chosen over secure communications, integrated voice and data applications, and other communication needs.
52% of U.S. manufacturing companies desire the capability for real-time messaging between machines and people.
The manufacturing industry is becoming more and more advanced with recent developments in automation technology and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). What is the IIoT? This simple yet remarkable concept refers to the ability for machines to transmit important information to other machines, and it’s transforming traditional manufacturing practices.
Minimizing background noise during business critical communications is a necessity for many workplaces, including the construction and manufacturing fields. Workers in the field need to be able to clearly hear each other despite the nearby sounds of heavy machinery operating. Fortunately, two-way radios are communication devices that automatically diminish this distracting and irritating background noise. These durable devices are capable of reducing noise levels because they have one, or a combination of the following features.
