Motorola DP4401 Ex
RRP £1,035.00 excl. VAT
The DP4401ex is the fully specified ATEX version of the DP4400e and DP4401e with GPS/mandown.
This model only adds to the already 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.
Workers can confront threats from explosive gas or combustible dust, on an oil rig or in an open mine, daily. Safe, reliable communication is absolutely critical in such dangerous environments. That’s where the power and performance of MOTOTRBO digital radio stands out. The very distinctive blue housing makes the ATEX units stand apart from other models.
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 IP67.
The new technology offers up to 19 hours of battery life for 3-shift working and an improved receiver boosts range by up to 8% on previous CENELEC/ATEX models.
The DP4401ex 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 DP4401ex user to deliver live critical communications exactly when and where it’s needed.
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).
DP4401ex 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.
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.
Ability to send a pre-programmed custom text via the three side programmable buttons.
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 “There are two ATEX radio options in the Motorola MOTOTRBO portfolio so from a choice point of view there is little – non display or the display model. That being said the DP4401ex unit is solid with excellent features with an industry leading ATEX spec. Pros – great looking distinctive ATEX unit, great to spot on site if radios are compliant, Cons – like all ATEX equipment its pricey, size and weight are a little big for my liking.”
