Designed strictly according to the Digital DMR ETSI Standard TS 102 361-1,-2,-3, the RDR2500 Series radios are compatible with all other major brands, including digital equipment, such as the Motorola MotoTrboTM and Vertex eVergeTM series two-way radios and repeaters.


Analog and Digital operation will give you the flexibility to upgrade to Digital at your own speed, without sacrificing safety and keeping your business operations running smoothly during the transition period.


Designed with X-Sound+ HDTM for exceptional voice quality. The RDR2500 series radios provide loud 1 Watt of power audio, at the same time eliminating background noise and static from the voice transmissions and delivering crystal clear voice message which results in a better, improved radio coverage.


Today’s digital technology allows for the transmitted signal to stay strong and clear from background noise for longer distances, until it reaches its maximum range. This allows for virtually no deterioration of the voice quality, thus providing larger usable coverage in areas where analog communication was very poor or not possible at all.


The RDR2500 series comes in two different models, the standard RDR2500 unit and the upgraded RDR2550 with 16 character display and industry leading 7 programmable function buttons.

The RDR2500 series radios are designed with durability in mind and built to survive the normal, everyday commercial wear and tear. The radio’s 3.6mm high quality, reinforced polycarbonate housing can be found only in public safety grade equipment and it is unmatched in this class.


Single chip transceiver solution with advanced RF quadrature signal processing without vibration and shock sensitive ceramic filters. This very reliable design significantly reduces the radio receiver failures due to normal everyday wear and tear, often involving unwanted equipment drops and knocks.


Upgrading from existing radio with RCA and Motorola style 2-prong accessory connectors? The RDR2500 series radios are designed with the same style accessory connector, providing you with the option to keep your speaker mics, earpieces and headsets. Built and recommended to be used with X03S style accessory connector, the radios will accept both, the X03 and X03S connectors.


Designed to be power efficient. When working in digital mode, the battery power consumption is lower up to 40% lower, providing longer operating time which ensures that your employees will stay connected beyond a full working shifts. With a typical duty cycle of 5 (Rx) – 5 (Tx) – 90 (Stand By), the standard 1800mAh Lithium Ion battery provides up to 10 hours of operation in Analog mode and up to 14 hours of operation in Digital mode.
