Having trouble with dead zones or need to expand coverage to remote locations? If so, listen up. Compact, easy to install and designed to work both indoors and outdoors, the new Motorola SLR 1000 repeater is built to expand your range without complications and grow as your needs do. The SLR 1000 will be the newest edition to the MOTOTRBO repeater lineup and will be available in the UHF frequency band and be capable of transmit power from 1-10 watts and has a frequency range of 403-527 MHz.
All initial reports indicate that the SLR 1000 repeater delivers high performance, high reliability two-way radio service, optimised for your unique workplace. Versatile and powerful, the new repeater represents a huge leap forward in technology, and heralds the arrival of the next generation of repeaters.
What makes it so special? Well, key features associated with the new repeater include:
- Simplex radio coverage enhancement
The SLR 1000 can help extend coverage for simplex applications, meaning the use of a single frequency instead of the traditional “repeater pair”. The repeater utilises the dual time-slot technology in TDMA digital to transmit on Frequency #1, Slot #1, and receive on Frequency #1, Slot #2.
- Ease of installation
Because the best location for coverage isn’t always easy to access, the SLR 1000 is compact (12x12inches in footprint) so you can mount it on walls or poles. And since the SLR 1000 doesn’t require cooling from HVAC, you have more placement options. All while eliminating the planning headaches and added costs that come with HVAC.
- Indoor and outdoor use
Since the SLR 1000 is IP65-rated for water and dust protection, you can deploy it indoors and out. Which means, unlike traditional repeaters, you have the flexibility to use it in places like parking garages, subway tunnels, and other potentially damp and wet locations.
- Reduced total cost of ownership
In the past, increasing your coverage often meant increasing your cost of ownership. The SLR 1000’s fanless design uses less energy. It also requires less space, which reduces site requirements and the costly permits that go along with them. All of which saves you money. A full range of accessories including a mountable antenna, optional duplexer and an antenna switch for Extended Direct Mode are also available to increase the unit’s functionality without increasing infrastructure expenses.
- The perfect voter
The SLR 1000 can be used as a voting receiver to improve your portable “talk back” range.
- High reliability
The high-quality design has been validated through Motorola’s Accelerated Life Testing (ALT) program, and meets stringent quality criteria. It features a next-generation receiver design, with high sensitivity and improved noise blocking, so you can count on clear voice quality even in the worst conditions.
The SLR 1000 works with both conventional and trunking systems that support voice and data, so you can continue to use it as you expand your network. For conventional systems, deploy the SLR 1000 with Extended Range Direct Mode, and expand your range without having to purchase additional frequencies.
- Works on all MOTOTRBO system topologies
The SLR 1000 is capable of all MOTOTRBO system types, including single site conventional, IP Site Connect, Capacity Plus, Capacity Max, and Connect Plus.
