The DP4600e offers a half way house between the DP4400e and DP4800e models.  This model continues with the high performance integrated voice and data, which lets you communicate without wires.  There is support for trunking options and legacy analogue radio capabilities to give the customer the flexibility and adaptability required.

The series features a prominent orange emergency button on the top of the handset, which has Transmit Interrupt functionality.  The radio is tested to military standards and is waterproof to IP68.

This model offers excellent user interface options, with a large full-colour, 5-line day and night display screen with easy-to-use menu navigation keys and a limited front keypad for simplified usage.

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 DP4600e comes integrated loneworking watch dog timer.


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 DP4800e 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

DP4600e 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

Not applicable on this model although a 3rd party option board can be used to give users enhanced options with regards to mandown and alarm signals.

Ability to send custom messages via the keypad and predefined text(s) via button press.

Voice Announcements

What we think

Jason from the Service Team says “Great radio in the sense it does many functions well but without the full keypad and no reduced size I can see why users don’t show much interest in buying them.  The pricing is not significantly less than the DP4800e models, a lot of our customers have opted not to purchase this model”
