Motorola SL300 Features
- Ultra-Slim Profile
Measuring under an inch thick, the SL300 is ultra-portable. A stubby antenna, curved edges and rugged frame make the SL300 the perfect work partner. It can be easily carried in pockets and purses without snagging or bulging.
- Advanced Technology
The SL300 is outfitted with the latest technology for performance and ease of use. The shatterproof Active View display uses a matrix of LEDs behind the radio housing to communicate radio information and shuts off when not in use to conserve battery life. The SL300 features Range Max technology, an advanced radio design and patented antenna that delivers enhanced range while maintaining a slim profile and long battery life.
- Simple Operation
The SL300 has been designed for easy, intuitive use. The side volume control, dedicated power button, prominent push-to-talk button, and top toggle channel switch have all been designed for quick one-hand access. Channel “fast toggle” allows users to scroll through 10 channels at a time.
- Dual Capacity Direct Mode
Utilize the power of the 2-slot TDMA DMR standard to double the capacity of your 12.5 kHz channel—without the need for a repeater.
- Rugged and Reliable
The SL300 is built to last. IP54 rated for dust and water resistance, it can be used even in harsh environments. This radio can survive many drops and tumbles. It has also been proven tough in Motorola’s grueling Accelerated Life Test, where the radio is tested against a simulated 5 years of hard service before it is accepted.
- Range Max Receiver
An advanced radio design and patented antenna that delivers enhanced range while maintaining a slim profile and long battery life.
- Active View Display – optional
Shatterproof Active View display uses hidden LED lighting to communicate channel, radio, and volume information crisply in both daytime and nighttime situations.
