Motorola Solutions unveils world’s thinnest and lightest digital radio in its class

Motorola Solutions, Inc. on Wednesday unveiled the SL Series portable radio as the latest addition to its MOTOTRBO professional digital communications portfolio.

The SL Series is the world’s thinnest, lightest Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) portable, designed to meet the communication needs of business users and executives in industries such as hospitality, services, security and airlines.

The radio has a rugged, high-resolution colour display with a built-in photo sensor that automatically detects ambient lighting and adjusts the display brightness for optimal viewing in all lighting conditions. The Intelligent Audio automatically adjusts the radio’s volume to fit background noise so users will not miss calls in a high-noise environment or disturb others in quiet areas.

The Integrated Bluetooth audio allows users to connect Bluetooth audio accessories without an external adaptor. The radio also supports Bluetooth data connectivity to wirelessly transfer data between the radio and other devices such as barcode scanners, mobile computers or mobile printers.

"Motorola Solutions’ customers in many markets, including management and customer-facing staff, wanted a lightweight and compact radio – one that can easily be worn under a jacket for discreet use while it looks good and is easy to use. They wanted a large, simple-to-read display to help improve texting and access to applications such as work-order ticket management. We designed the SL Series to meet these needs and help customers collaborate and communicate more efficiently," said Pauline Tng, director of distribution, Professional Two-way Radio and Accessories & Energy, South & East Asia, Motorola Solutions, Asia-Pacific.

The SL Series supports the industry’s largest portfolio of data applications, such as work order ticket management, e-mail, dispatch, network monitoring and telephone interconnect. The radio also offers vibrate alert, covert mode and an integrated antenna design that optimises range performance – all of which are designed for ease of use and discreet communication. For even more discretion and flexible communications, the SL Series includes a comprehensive portfolio of earpieces, single-unit and multi-unit chargers, and a flexible wrist strap or swivel belt clip carry holder for enhanced portability.
