    The Entel DX482M has been designed to specifically meet the needs of harsh marine environments, the versatile DX482M offers outstanding performance in both DMR digital and analogue modes. The rugged radio delivers audio volume and clarity which is unmatched by radios twice its size as well as having intuitive controls designed with gloved hands in mind.

    The DX482M radio has a IP68 rating resulting in it being protected against dust and fully Submersible, this is useful for businesses who work in harsh environments as it means that they will be protected against everyday conditions which they may come across. Alongside this, the DX482M  meets MIL-STD 810 C/D/E/D standards and provides commercial grade construction for tough, enduring performances. This radio conforms to stringent standards which enables them to withstand the everyday rigours of shock, vibration and the corrosive effects of dust and moisture, this again helps industries such as construction, logistics and transportation. 

    The Entel DX482M is supplied with the latest intelligent Lithium-Ion battery technology. An advantage of this battery is the way in which it eliminates 'memory effect', this means that there is no need to fully discharge the battery before recharging, alongside this it gives the operator reassurance that the battery will have full charge when they come to use it. In addition to this, the Entel DX482M benefits from TDMA Digital mode signalling which increases battery endurance by up to 40% which ensures longer standby and talking times.

    The robust accessory socket has been specifically designed in order to ensure that when an accessory is secured to the portable, then the connection is able to withstand any amount of punishment, this includes dropping of the radio and careless misuse. This is again useful for businesses especially in sectors such as transportation and logistics as it means that they are able to know that the radio is protected in these harsh environments if someone did accidentally drop the radio or through slight operation misuse. 

    With the DX482M , it has improved and added features on the radio through the way of software updates, with this then it uses Flash Upgrade technology resulting in your radio being able to be upgraded by your dealer at anytime. This is good for businesses as it means that they are able to ensure that there radios are kept up to date at all times to keep them fresh and ensure that they get the most out of the radios. 

    In order to avoid an accidental operation, the DX482M has a keylock function which means that the radio keys and controls can be locked by the user at any time, alongside this you are able to get the radio to automatically do this for you. 

    The DMR Digital standard splits a single analogue channel into two separate channels which doubles the number of channels available to a radio user. The two-slot operation is typically only possible when a DMR Repeater is included within the system however this radio is able to overcome this restriction on both simplex and DMR466 channels resulting in both channels always being available. Another feature which the Entel DX482M has is called mixed mode operation. With this then the radio is able to receive both DMR digital and analogue modes without the user having to change the channel. Mixed mode is beneficial where both analogue and digital radios are being used together, an example for businesses is when a customer is migrating from an existing analogue radio system to a DMR Digital radio system. 

    With this radio you have the option for both individual and group calling, this can be selected via the channel control. With individual calling then you are able to have 1-2-1 conversations with people making it simple to communicate. If you would like to communicate with two or more people at one time then there is the option to group call, this will communicate with a group of people, this is useful if you need to get out a group announcement quickly.

    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)
