Motorola makes the migration to digital more affordable with the EVX-261 Digital Portable Two Way Radio! The EVX-261 supports the digital DMR Tier 2 standard / TDMA protocol while it maintains compatibility with your existing analog business two way radios, so you can upgrade your fleet to digital technology and use your current analog radios at the same time!
The EVX 261 is available in 5W VHF and UHF models with 16 channel capacity. It features two programmable keys, a programmable two-color LED, superior audio output and internal VOX. It also includes 2-Tone and 5-Tone encode/decode, radio-to-radio cloning, and multiple scan options. Other features include Direct Mode for two communication paths on a single frequency and Transmit Interrupt to halt a current transmission for a priority message. DTMF, 2-Tone and 5-Tone capabilities, Voice Inversion Encryption, and MDC1200® compatibility provide you with expanded interoperability when using the EVX-261.
The EVX 261 is also built to last. It meets the IP55 standards for dust and water resistance and meets Mil-STD D, E, F, and G specifications.
Two battery options are available for the Motorola EVX-261. It comes standard with a 1380 mAh lithium-ion battery pack for up to 7.4 hours in analog mode and 9.7 hours in digital mode on a 9-5-5 duty cycle with battery saver enabled. Need more uptime? Choose the high capacity 2300 mAh lithium-ion battery for up to 12.0 hours analog or 15.8 hours digital operation.
Includes one Motorola EVX-261 UHF or VHF digital two way radio, antenna, belt clip, AC charger, lithium-ion rechargeable battery, owner's manual and three year warranty.
The Motorola EVX-261 radio is fully compatible with the popular Motorola TRBO series of digital radios using standard encryption. Currently using Motorola TRBO? Switch to the Motorola EVX-261 and save! The Motorola Digital Advantage
The Motorola digital radio series uses Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Tier 2 Standard protocol, compatible with other makes and models of DMR supported radios, including the popular MOTOTRBO™ series (compatible using standard encryption). The EVX Series radios are also compatible with any existing analog two-way radio for easy migration to new digital technology and to provide maximum return on investment (ROI).
Motorola EVX digital radios use Time-Division Multiple-Access (TDMA) technology for power and spectrum efficiency and a lower cost of total equipment compared to FDMA.
Digital radio technology offers consistently higher quality transmissions with greater clarity, less noise and greater range than analog transmissions. Vertex EVX Series radios use TDMA, which also cuts transmission time in half, reducing overall power consumption. This allows Motorola EVX-530 Series radios to operate up to 40 percent longer than a typical analog radio, reducing battery consumption, which saves you money!
Motorola EVX Series digital radios are FCC Part 90 Narrowbanding Compliant.
