More information

The Motorola SL1600 is a modern-looking, ultra-slim dual analogue/digital two way radio that provides flexible communications solutions for the contemporary professional. Light in weight and extremely convenient to carry, the SL1600 is packed with technology that makes business-class two way radio use simple and straightforward.

An ideal choice for everything from stewarding busy events to managing security at retail parks and leisure destinations, the SL1600’s compact size make it one of the most portable two way radio handsets on the market. At just 22mm thick, you will find no issues carrying the SL1600 in pockets, on belt straps or in external holders, and the curved, ergonomically designed edges help make it comfortable to operate in one hand.

In addition, the SL1600 benefits from Motorola’s innovative Range Max technology, which makes use of a patented high efficiency antenna. As well as reducing the overall size of the unit, this features actually increases broadcast range and helps to prolong battery life. Overall, the SL1600 provides 3W of output power with a maximum range of up to 3km. The battery will last up to 14 hours on a single charge.

Another clever and useful energy-saving feature is the unique Active View display. While the SL1600 does not have a screen in the conventional sense, it does boast a matrix of small, energy efficient LED lights behind the front face which are used to communicate information to the user, such as the number of the channel they are using. These and the rest of the handset go into sleep mode when not in use to save battery life.

The SL1600 has been designed for easy, intuitive use. The side volume control, dedicated power button, prominent push-to-talk button, and top toggle channel switch have all been designed for quick one-handed use and the channel “fast toggle” allows users to scroll through 10 channels at a time. It features a micro USB port for convenient charging.

In keeping with a two way radio designed for active use in business and industry, the front display and indeed the rest of the chassis are shatterproof, tough and built to exacting standards of durability. It is rated to the IP54 standard for dust and water resistance and the design has been proven through Motorola’s stringent Accelerated Life Test, which puts a handset through a simulated 5 years’ worth of hard service to test how it stands up to general wear and tear. The SL1600 continues to operate after that time frame without a glitch.

As a dual analogue-digital ‘hybrid’ radio, the SL1600 offers complete flexibility. Add it to existing fleets of analogue radios and then, as you gradually replace your older models, switch over to digital. Either way, you are guaranteed maximum return on investment with a prolonged life span.
