Motorola releases new digital two-way radio for reliable team communication

The new Motorbo R7 has been designed for noisy worksites

Motorola Solutions has launched its new Motorbo R7 in Australia – a digital two-way radio with advanced audio features and a slim, rugged design to connect teams in loud environments.

Motorbo R7 voice communications work on the digital mobile radio (DMR) standard and deliver sharp, clear speech for better intelligibility, with industrial-level noise cancellation, automatic feedback suppression and automatic volume adjustment based on background noise.

Critical and detailed information is displayed on the home screen, alleviating the need for workers to scroll through multiple screens to access alerts or text messages. The device can be programmed and updated via WiFi and has a 28-hour battery.

The Motorbo R7 can be connected to a variety of different sensors over DMR and Bluetooth and can be integrated with video security and access control systems. This allows security personnel to receive notifications on the device when there are unauthorised attempts to access secure areas or doors are propped open.

Plant operators and field workers are able to receive critical alerts when high levels of hazardous gas are detected.

“The Motorbo R7 is built to support communication and collaboration in any work environment, enabling security staff to share safety updates over the roar of a stadium, facilities managers to coordinate a variety of tasks and transport and logistics organisations to stay on top of their busy daily workflows,” Motorola Solutions general manager for the Australia and New Zealand channel business Dan Leppos says.

“Its integration with other safety systems and technologies allows teams to detect and respond more quickly to all manner of day-to-day events, as well as during emergencies.”
