SL1600 comes to to RSPCA Leybourne

Wirefr3 are delighted to be providing RSPCA Leybourne with new Mototrbo digital two-way radios.  RSPCA Leybourne becomes another significant site within the Wirefr3 RSPCA client portfolio.  We now provide two-way radio solutions to a number of RSPCA sites across the UK.

RSPCA Leybourne wanted to move away from their analogue radios.  Their desire to move was due to poor radio performance, interference and battery issues.  With this in mind, we conducted a thorough survey of the site, testing three different digital two-way radio models.  With call performance logged, we were then in a position to present our finding along with the benefits of each of the tested two-way radios.  After careful consultation, the Mototrbo SL1600 digital two-way radio was the clear winner.

The Mototrbo SL1600 – In more detail

The Mototrbo SL1600 provides reliable push-to-talk communication with an ultra-slim and rugged design. The latest technology works to make operation of the SL1600 simple and straightforward. Ergonomic design allows one-handed radio operation.  A variety of accessories are available so you can focus on the job in hand.

At only 22mm thick, the SL1600 is ultraportable. A stubby antenna, curved edges and rugged frame make the SL1600 the perfect work partner. It can be easily carried in pockets or bags without snagging or bulging.

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-hand access.  Channel “fast toggle” allows users to scroll through 10 channels at a time.

The SL1600 is fitted with the latest technology for performance and ease of use.  The shatterproof active view display uses a matrix of LEDs behind the radio housing.  This is to communicate status information and shuts off when not in use to conserve battery life.  The SL1600 also features Range Max technology.  This advanced radio design and patented antenna delivers enhanced range while maintaining a slim profile and long battery life.

The SL1600 is built to last.  IP54 rated for dust and water resistance, it can be used even in harsh environments.  This radio can survive many drops and tumbles. It has  been proven tough in Motorola’s gruelling Accelerated Life Test, where the radio is tested against a simulated 5 years of hard service before it is accepted.

SL1600 making a difference

The team at RSPCA Leybourne are thrilled with the Mototrbo SL1600 and they have already witnessed improved performance, full site coverage and improved battery life.
