New 2-Way Paves the Way for Construction Sector


Motorola Solutions has announced the launch of the MOTOTRBO R7 in Australia.

The MOTOTRBO R7 voice communications work on the digital mobile radio (DMR) standard and deliver sharp, clear speech for better intelligibility, with industrial-level noise cancellation, automatic feedback suppression and automatic volume adjustment based on background noise.

Critical and detailed information is displayed on the home screen, alleviating the need for workers to scroll through multiple screens to access alerts or text messages. The device can be programmed and updated over the air via Wi-Fi to reduce downtime and is powered by a battery that lasts up to 28 hours.

Australia’s construction sector is forecast to grow at 3.4 per cent between 2022 and 2025, fuelled by a considerable pipeline of public infrastructure projects and an additional investment of A$15.2 billion on infrastructure works from the Australian government.

“As Australia’s COVID-19 economic recovery continues, many commercial sectors are experiencing a resurgence in productivity. The MOTOTRBO R7 delivers loud and clear voice communications for employees working near noisy machinery and is ideal for use in major projects such as the construction of underground tunnels for Sydney’s Metro public transport. Reliable two-way radio communication has become more important than ever in environments where productivity surges and the highest levels of safety must be maintained. The R7’s rugged but compact design makes it ideal for use in construction and a range of other commercial sectors,” said Hamish Duff, CEO of Mastercom and MD of Orion.

“The MOTOTRBO R7 is built to support communication and collaboration in any work environment, enabling security staff to share safety updates over the roar of a stadium, facilities managers to coordinate a variety of tasks and transport and logistics organisations to stay on top of their busy daily workflows,” said Dan Leppos, General Manager of Motorola Solutions’ Australia and New Zealand channel business. “Its integration with other safety systems and technologies allows teams to detect and respond more quickly to all manner of day-to-day events, as well as during emergencies,” Leppos said.
