SLR 1000 REPEATER

COVERAGE WITHOUT COMPLICATIONS

Whether you want to eliminate dead zones or expand coverage to remote locations, count on the SLR 1000. Compact, easy to install, and designed to work indoors or out, it’s built to grow as your needs do.

Keeping your team connected requires uninterrupted radio coverage. But often, network dead zones and remote locations present barriers to seamless communication.

Unlike traditional repeaters, the SLR 1000 is IP65-rated for dust and water protection, so you can deploy on campuses, in parking garages, and across other outdoor locations. The compact size gives you more installation options, such as mounting on walls or poles. And a low power, fan-less design uses less space and energy, saving you money right from the get-go.

As your organization grows, the SLR 1000 can grow with it. It works with both conventional and trunking systems supporting voice and data, so moving to a bigger system won’t always require buying a bigger repeater.

Above all, it’s technology you can trust. With more than 10 years of experience in DMR, you can rely on Motorola Solutions and proven MOTOTRBO™ technology to get the job done.

Commercial Driver Cell Phone Ban

FMCSA & PHMSA COMMERCIAL DRIVER CELL PHONE BAN

Mobile Phone Restriction Rule For Commercial Motor Vehicle Drivers

The FMCSA and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) have published rules specifically prohibiting interstate truck and bus drivers and drivers who transport placardable quantities of hazardous materials from texting or using hand-held mobile phones while operating their vehicles. The joint rules are the latest actions by the U.S. Department of Transportation to end distracted driving. Violations can result in fines and/or driver disqualifications and will impact a motor carrier’s and/or driver’s Safety Measurement System (SMS) results.

Overview And Background

The FMCSA rule restricts the use of all hand-held mobile devices by drivers of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs). This rulemaking restricts a CMV driver from holding a mobile device to make a call, or dialing by pressing more than a single button. CMV drivers who use a mobile phone while driving can only use a hands-free phone located in close proximity.

Fines, Penalties, And Disqualification

Using a hand-held mobile phone while driving a CMV can result in driver disqualification. Penalties can be up to $2,750 for drivers and up to $11,000 for employers who allow or require drivers to use a hand-held communications device while driving. Multiple violations of the prohibition of using a hand-held mobile phone while driving a CMV can result in a driver disqualification by FMCSA. Multiple violations of State laws prohibiting use of a mobile phone while driving a CMV is a serious traffic violation that could result in a disqualification by a State of drivers required to have a Commercial Drivers License.

We Can Help You Avoid Fines And Penalties And Comply

Motorola’s MOTOTRBO digital two-way radios are the preferred choice for businesses and organizations that need to safely and efficiently connect with their mobile workforce. MOTOTRBO complies with US DOT, FMCSA and PHMSA regulations.
