    The DT985 is IP68 rated resulting in it being dust protected as well as fully Submersible, this is even when the accessory cover is removed. Alongside this the radio meets MIL-STD 810 C/D/E/F/G standards which provides commercial grade construction for tough, enduring performance.

The DT925 is supplied with the latest, high-capacity, intelligent lithium-Ion battery technology. With the battery, it can eliminate 'memory effect' which means that there is no need to fully discharge the battery before recharging it. As a result of this then you are able to be assured of a full charge each and every time you take the battery from the charger. This is good for businesses as they are able to ensure that when someone starts their shift then they will have a full battery ready to have clear, uninterrupted communication.

     When working alone then businesses want to ensure that everyone is always protected. With the features on the DT985 then this will help with ease of mind as they will be able to get help at the push of a button. One function which this radio has in the emergency button, if the operator pushes the emergency button on the radio then this will instantly send an alarm call to other radios as well as sounding a local alarm, this is good for businesses as everyone will be alarmed so they are able to respond quickly if anything does arise. Other safety features which this radio has is a lone-work alarm and a man-down alarm which are designed for people who work alone. With the lone-worker alarm then it has a timer which checks that the user is okay, if there is not a response then the radio automatically sends an alarm to the other radios as well as a local alarm alerting non-radio users in the vicinity to the emergency. The man-down alarm is designed in case someone falls and becomes unconscious, from here the sensor automatically sends an alarm to other radios, the local alarm then additionally alerts non-radio users in the vicinity to the emergency. These features are good for businesses as they are able to ensure that should the operator require help then they are able to do this in a simple push of a button. With the DT985 having a display screen you are able to see who is calling you and who you are communicating with, this is useful if there are multiple radios within the business then you are able to easily see who is communicating with who.

    Yes! This radio is a full-power unit which works on licensed spectrum. Here’s a few important points to remember:

    • Licencing is really easy and cost effective, so don’t be put off
    • You only licence the frequency (channel) your radios use, not the number of radios or handsets
    • If you’re buying radios to use outside of the UK, you will need to get a licence from your country’s regulatory body
    • Want us to guide you through it? Call us on 01778 426777 or email info@theradioshop.co.uk

    Buy a licence online:

    You can choose from one of the following two options to buy a licence online. Once you place your order, we’ll apply for the licence for you, which is valid for 5 years. Ofcom will then contact you directly in 5 years’ time to arrange the renewal.

    Remember: you don’t need a licence per radio, just a licence per fleet of radios. One licence will usually provide enough cover for your company or site (or you as an individual if you’re buying for private use)
