Average IP-Rated Two Way Radios

Posted by Two Way Direct on 2nd May 2023

    Having the proper durability of communications within a work environment is a necessity for most businesses. When handling two way radios, they frequently get dropped, antennas get bent and batteries die. This is why it is so important to purchase a system, which is not only cost-effective, but is also durable enough to withstand the environmental elements.

     So, when researching a new two way radio system, you must first decide the qualities, which your handhelds need to possess. Should they be waterproof? Do you need a more compact design? Will your team need accessories in order to create a hands-free environment?

    If you are looking for a solution, which can offer good durability along with long-lasting battery life, an average-ip-rated two way radio might be your solution. IP Ratings refer to the level of protection a device has against the intrusion of solid objects or liquids.

    An average IP rating for two-way radios is between IP61-IP66. Within this range, two-way radios are completely dust and particle resistant, and may have the ability to withstand extreme conditions such as water jets from all directions.
