Detailed Information

The CP040 is a two way radio from Motorola. One of the most popular radios ever released, the CP040 is compatible with both UHF and VHF frequencies. Originally designed for medium sized businesses, the CP040 is ideal for use in industrial and commercial environments. This radio comes as standard with a Li-Ion 1600mAh battery, this supplying enough power to comfortably last a shift of 8 hours. Should you need a longer usage time, there is the possibility of purchasing an upgraded 2300mAh or 2900mAh Li-Ion battery.

Built to IP54 standards, the CP040 is ingress protected against dust whilst also being resistant against splashes of water. MIL-STD-810F means that the CP040 is rugged and reliable, this radio has passed the “Motorola Accelerated Life Test” that replicates five years of hard use in the field.

The CP040 has a high/low power setting which can allow for a longer usage of the radio. When the users of radios are within close proximity, switching to low power will reduce range and therefore extend the battery life of the product. A built-in scan function searches channels for activity, therefore lowering the likelihood of a message being missed.

A large array of accessories are available for the CP040, allowing for customization of use in a variety of different working environments. Official Motorola equipment such as cases, chargers, carriers and much more.

Motorola CP040 is soon to be replaced by the Motorola DP1400.
