If you employ security guards, for example, they need to be able to make contact with their partner for backup at the press of a button. Stopping to adjust their radio is going to be the last thing on their mind while they are performing their duties. And a failure in two way radio comms is not something they want to discover when it matters most.
Luckily, pre-planning can avoid radio “dead zones” – areas of weak reception around your property. Radio repeaters can be used to boost your signal, making communications possible over longer distances without a decline in quality. The Motorola SLR1000 repeater ensures that transmissions remain crystal clear.
Easy to Install, Cheaper to Maintain
The SLR1000 makes use of a fanless design, which means less noise, lower electricity costs, and a compact design that allows for more installation options. Fewer moving components in this repeater also reduces the need for maintenance, as there is simply less wear and tear on the internals.
The exterior of the SLR1000 is IP65 rated for water and dust protection, allowing the device to be installed outdoors on university campuses, in subway tunnels or parking garages, or even affixed to light poles. This repeater is designed for flexible deployment; indoors or out, it’s as suited for a large office building as it is for providing coverage at a community festival.
Expands With You
The communications network that you can create with an SLR1000 is expandable, allowing it to grow with your business or adapt to changes in needs. This repeater supports both conventional and trunking radio systems, including both voice and data.
For a conventional radio-to-radio system, expanding the voice coverage area is as simple as setting up your SLR1000 with Extended Range Direct Mode. This prevents having to spend money to purchase additional frequencies. Optional accessories such as a duplexer, antenna switch, or small mountable antenna all allow for more flexible yet cost-effective coverage options as well.
