Detailed Information

The Motorola DP1400 is a analogue or analogue/digital hybrid business radio for multi-use. This radio comes in two versions. Digital Only and Digital/Analogue Hybrid. When placing an order, please be sure to select the correct model.

The Motorola DP1400 is simple, and affordable and fits right into the entry-level two way radio business class whilst adding the extra security of digital operation. The DP1400 may be at the entry level of two way business radios, but it has everything you need and is built to last.

* Features available when upgraded to digital through purchased licence.

Included with the DP1400

The following is included or optional with the DP1400.

  • Motorola DP1400 Radio (select model when ordering)
  • Battery (select battery required)
  • Belt Clip
  • Antenna (select whip or stubby when ordering)
  • Optional Single Charger

Charger Options

There is no single charger included in the DP1400 by default, you can choose whether to, or not to, include a single charger. This is because you might want to buy six radios and a six-way charger. There are two six-way options. You can either choose the PMLN6600A which is an integrated all-in-one six way, or you can choose a motorola rack charger and add six DP1400 charger pods.

Replaces Motorola CP040

The Motorola DP1400 is the direct replacement for the, now discontinued, Motorola CP040. So much so, that the DP1400 shares the batteries, chargers, antennas, top knobs and has the exact same accessory connector for earpieces & remote speaker microphones. In fact, you could keep all of your batteries and accessories and swap-out just the CP040 radio for the DP1400 radio.

The only difference is that the DP1400 is available as a digital version. See the model table below.

Six Different Colours Available

By default the DP1400 is supplied in black. If you prefer, you can choose for us to put an aftermarket cover on your DP1400. We have 5 different aftermarket covers to choose from. Below is a photoshop'd illustration of what your radio is likely to look like when the cover has been changed.

> Note: Changing the colour of the radio means we change the cover to an aftermarket cover. The cover is not made by Motorola, is not a genuine Motorola part and should be considered an aesthetic aftermarket modification.

 

 

Features Explained

Lone Worker Feature

Lone Worker is a feature found on many two way radios where it's able to send a pre-determined signal, for example a distress call or alarm, to other radios in range, Lone Worker requires some type of interaction from the radio user after a period of radio inactivity. An example of this is the radio can be set to require the radio operator to interact with his or her radio once every 30 minutes. If they fail to do so, their radio will start making an audible sound. If there is still no interaction with his or her radio within 1 further minute, a alarm will sound to other team members to tell them a team member is not responding to Lone Worker. The supervisor can then dispatch another team member to the non-reponsive team member's last known location to offer assistance.

 Lone Worker is built-in to the Motorola DP1400.

Digital Basic Privacy

Basic Privacy uses a fixed "key" which is set when the radio is programmed, of which there are 255 possible "keys". Whilst this level of privacy is technically basic encryption, it's nevertheless relatively insecure. Comparable to analogue 'inversion' scrambling, it will prevent the 'casual' listener from hearing anything, but does not guarantee against eavesdropping.

 Basic Digital Privacy is built-in to the Motorola DP1400.

Channel Scanning

Channel scanning enables the user to monitor a number of channels and respond when a transmission comes through. The scan feature can usually be programmed to include or exclude channels from the scan. Scanning fewer channels makes the scan faster.

A common example is when there is a private channel and community channel programmed. This is usually the case for a shop which is a member of the local business crime reduction (or shop-watch / pub-watch) scheme. The radio would "scan", or alternate between, both channels. Normally, they might only use channel 1 for their own private use within the organisation. But when a transmission (or call) comes through on the local business crime reduction (or shop-watch) scheme channel becomes active. Then within a few seconds the radio would revert back to it's original channel 1.

Digital hybrid radios can usually scan either or both digital and analogue channels simultaneously. This allows for an extremely flexible scan facility where the user can monitor many channels across both analogue and digital modes.

 Channel Scanning is built-in to the Motorola DP1400.

Voice Activation (VOX)

Voice activation, commonly refered to as VOX, allows the user to initiate the radio to transmit, simply by using their voice. Some radios only allow VOX capability via an external audio accessory such as an earpiece or headset which is VOX-enabled or has a VOX button.

Activating Voice Activation or VOX

There are two possible ways of enabling voice activation (VOX). The first is that we can program a VOX-enable / VOX disable button on the radio. The other option is that we supply an audio accessory, an earpiece or headset, that has a VOX button. Contact us for more information about this.

Programming May Be Required

There may be programming required to activate VOX on your radio. In any event, please talk to our knowledgeable staff and we will be able to offer advice on VOX activation.

 Voice Activation (VOX) is built-in to the Motorola DP1400, but a VOX-enabled audio accessory, such as an earpiece or headset, may be required.
