Motorola DP4401e

RRP £536.00 excl. VAT

The DP4401e is the GPS/mandown version of the DP4400e, this model only adds to the existing full range of features; with high performance integrated voice, GPS, data, and Bluetooth audio which lets you communicate without wires, the new integrated Wi-Fi enables remote software updates and indoor and outdoor location-tracking capabilities give total visibility of your resources. There is support for trunking options and legacy analogue radio capabilities to give the customer the flexibility and adaptability required.

The DP4000e series features a prominent orange emergency button on the top of the handset, which has Transmit Interrupt functionality during emergency calling.  This model has an integrated accelerometer and can sense if there is either a man down situation or if the users stops moving; both cases can be used with (or without) the already great watchdog timed loneworker feature.  Once an emergency is initiated you can be sure that help is on its way.  The radio is tested to military standards and is waterproof to IP68.

The new technology offers up to 28 hours of battery life (depending on the model of battery) for 3-shift working and an improved receiver boosts range by up to 8% on previous models.

The DP4401e comes integrated with the man down, Wi-Fi and location tracking option board with some of  these features being activated by additional license keys.


Get all the benefits of digital, including better voice quality, better operational range and better battery life – but retain compatibility with your existing radio fleet while giving yourself the freedom to migrate to the latest technology at your own pace, this assumes the digital version is purchased, an upgrade license (to digital) is available for the analogue version.

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 DP4401e user to deliver live critical communications exactly when and where it’s needed.

Encrypted Communications

Keep your communications from being intercepted and your channels secure with 16-bit encryption, other enhancements are also available using Digital Privacy and RAS (Restricted Access to System).

Lone Worker

DP4401e 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.

Man Down

This uses the integrated accelerometer and automatically sends an alarm signal if the radio handset is tipped over for over a programmable amount of time.

Text Messaging

Ability to send a pre-programmed custom text via the three side programmable buttons.

Voice Announcements

DP4401e 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 the Service Team says “This is the upgraded model of the DP4401, the DP4400 was the GP340 replacement, these were big boots to fill and this model has proved its worth these last few years.  The DP4400e range are great work radios for systems and high demanding users, rugged and robust with excellent options all round.  The built-in motion sensor on this model allows us to offer a full range of fantastic Loneworker configurations for our customers.  The updated DP4401e has a slightly styled front profile which in my opinion is a lot better than the DP4400 straight brick design.”
