Food Manufacturing Two Way Radios

Posted by Two Way Direct on 3rd Aug 2023

    Two Way Radios, for many years, have been a consistent form of communication for businesses of all shapes and sizes. From security to retail stores to manufacturing warehouses, to events, concerts and more, these handhelds enable instant communication among a team of workers. It is important, however, to be sure that the correct type of handheld is being used in order to guarantee that optimal coverage can be obtained. This is why we, Two Way Direct, offer our help.

    Food manufacturers oftentimes utilize warehouses with many different moving parts involved. In order for each team member to work efficiently, their communications must be able to reach every corner of the facility. This handheld must also be durable enough to withstand frequent falls and must also provide clear audio in a noisy environment.


    There are a couple of two way radios, which have proven to be sufficient options for this type of environment. The first two way radio, which we would recommend, is the Hytera BD612i . This product is built for the ruggedness of a warehouse setting and offers an IP66 rating, which means that it is dust-tight and protects from powerful water jets. It can withstand frequent drops and provides digital noise cancellation in noisy environments. 4 watts of power allow this radio to reach the distances needed. With its lightweight and sleek design, the BD612i is easy to hold and can provide the coverage needed.

    Another great option for food manufacturing settings is the Hytera BD502. This dual mode radio offers the ability to communicate with both analog as well as digital handhelds within your system. Looking to upgrade from an analog system? Simply utilize the BD502 in analog mode until you have phased out all of your old analog radios, then immediately switch over to digital once that transition is complete.

    The BD502 two way radio not only offers up to 22 hours of life, but it is also IP-54 rated, which means that it is both dust-proof as well as water-proof. With 4 watts of power, this rugged radio is an ideal option for food manufacturing warehouses, where workflow efficiency is needed.
