For large work sites or outdoor events, a repeater is an essential addition to your two way radio set-up. The Motorola SLR 5500 repeater is an upgrade worth considering, as it provides improved tech specs over the DR3000 in a smaller, more compact unit.
If your business is currently running analogue two way radios, or you’re part-way through a switch to digital technology, the SLR 5500 will support your existing hardware as well as your migration plans. It can be used in fully analogue or fully digital mode, and also supports a mixed mode configuration, where both types of radios can be used through the same repeater.
With 50W of transmitting power, the Motorola SLR 5500 can extend two way radio coverage over large sites, both indoors and out. It’s suitable for large industrial facilities, and is equally well suited to assisting events organisers communicate over long distances over outdoor terrain.
Compared to the DR3000, the SLR 5500 offers 10 times more processing power, 125 times more data capacity, and 15 times more memory, making it a worthwhile investment and a valuable upgrade to your two way radio kit. Full MOTOTRBO standards compliance means that the repeater is compatible with useful features like IP Site Connect and Connect Plus, providing your handsets support them. This can help you to extend the reach of your radios even further, using the internet to bridge different sites.

Many of the serviceable parts inside the unit can be replaced quickly on-site, ensuring downtime is kept to a minimum when a repair is needed. Low power consumption and low thermal footprint offers a low cost of ownership, too.
