Automatic Gain Control
This feature can automatically compensate for changes in voice level, whether you are speaking softly or loudly, turning your head, or moving the microphone further away from your mouth.
Transmit Interrupt Capability
Enables a supervisor to interrupt a DP1400 (available in digital mode only) user to deliver live critical communications exactly when and where it’s needed.
DP1400 can help protect those working on their own by regularly prompting the user to press a button on the radio. If the user does not respond within a specified length of time, a supervisor or dispatcher is notified that there may be a problem. A dedicated emergency channel can be utilised with radios automatically selecting this channel during an emergency call.
DP1400 can be configured to have voice announcements; battery level, channel selection and other functions can have standard or custom voice announcements. E.g. Channel one could now be announced as “Operations Channel” with channel two being “Emergency Channel”, great for users who have poor vision or the environmental condition are poor (night time etc.). This feature also enables the radio unit to remain in the case or clipped to a belt during channel selection.

What we think
Jason from Service Team: “The DP1400 is a great and capable unit, I was never fond of the older CP040 model due to the Professional GP340 model being so successful at the time. The DP1400 has been updated with both versions of the DP1400 now well proven based on the sales/rental volume and lack of service calls we get.
I would advise to avoid the NiMH battery units, these battery packs are bigger, heavier and poor cost effectiveness over two years when compares to the Li-Ion unit. As such we only supply the upgraded Li-Ion battery.
On a down side there is no dedicated orange emergency button but a side button is usually used, it is only IP54 rated due to the accessory socket. All in all, it is a great dependable unit at a good price making it safe investment.”
