New intrinsically-safe radio with keyboard

Published:  27 November, 2012

The new TETRA radio from Sepura is IECEx/ATEX approved.

Sepura has launched a full keypad version of its STP8X series of intrinsically-safe (IS) IECEx/ATEX approved hand-portable radios.

The STP8X has a full and highly tactile keypad that allows easy access to the extensive functionality on the radio, even with gloved hands. For example, it enables users to undertake ad-hoc dialling. It also features an enhanced user interface which offers three different presentation styles, designed to minimise training costs and appeal not only to existing trained Sepura users, but also to new untrained users who are perhaps more familiar with a modern day smartphone rather than a professional TETRA radio.

“The success of our award winning STP8X series has been the main driver for expanding our innovative intrinsically-safe product range.  Customer uptake of the reduced-keypad version has surpassed our expectations, and requests to fulfil the requirements of users who need the same high-level protection, while gaining access to all of the features of the radio, can now be achieved thanks to the new full-keypad version.” said Mark Barnby, Senior Product Manager, Sepura plc.

The STP8X series is the only hand-portable on the market to meet both the rigorous demands of v6 of the IECEx/ATEX standards and the IP67 rating, while offering best-in-class levels of clarity and loudness of audio to guarantee clear communication, which is fundamental to user safety.
