Posted by Two Way Direct on 16th Sep 2022

In purchasing a two way radio system for your team, one of the most important questions you need to ask yourself is, how durable do I need my handhelds to be? Do you need them to be able to withstand drops? Should they be water resistant?

When searching for the proper handheld for your application, the feature, which identifies durability level is called the “IP Rating.” An IP Rating technically represents the level of protection provided by a device against the intrusion of solid objects and liquids.

A low IP rating for two-way radios would be between IP54-IP60.

Check out the graph below to better decipher what protection your radios possess:

Some popular two-way radio models within this Low IP-Rated category include the Kenwood PKT23 (IP54), TWD XTR50 (IP56), Motorola CP100D and CP200D (IP54), Motorola SL300 (IP54), Motorola BPR40/BPR40D (IP54) and the Motorola BD502 (IP54).

Although these radios might not have the highest IP rating, they are more than capable of performing optimally in environments such as restaurants, retail stores, small offices, and schools.
