Petrochemical

The Right Communications Tool

You know the challenges. Petrochemical plants are particularly sensitive due to the volatile nature and characteristics of the products being produced. Mobile communication technologies such as cellular phones are outlawed in operating areas due to the possibility of a fire because of an electrical spark or short circuit. Cellular radio signals can also interfere with sensitive process control equipment.

Nothing can stand in the way of your response to an emergency. Your employees have to be able to communicate easily under pressure —every time. Safety is essential. More so in the Petrochemical worksite where safety risks are ever present and all have the potential to cause major loss of life. To keep communication uncompromised is to keep your crew safe.

Powered by advanced Motorola technology, the MOTOTRBO™ Professional Digital Conventional Two-Way Radio System is ready to help you respond to those challenges with improved productivity.

Communication that is Always Easy
MOTOTRBO™ radios are designed for easy operation, even when wearing gloves. Thanks to a simple design and intuitive menus, your employees can easily access MOTOTRBO ’s powerful features. With a single touch, you can call an individual radio, group of radios, or every radio in your system.
MOTOTRBO™ also makes communication easy with audio that stays clear to the edge of coverage—plus digital noise suppression to aid communication in noisy environments. Moreover, MOTOTRBO™ supports integrated data applications, including text messaging. So you can always get messages through.

Tough Radios for Tough Jobs
You can count on MOTOTRBO™ radios because they’re tested-tough to endure hard knocks, water, dust and temperature extremes. They meet demanding standards: U.S. Military Standards 810 C, D, E, and F, and, for portable radios, IP57 for submersibility in water. MOTOTRBO™ portable radios are also intrinsically safe and can be used in locations where flammable gas, vapours or combustible dust may be present. And if your people have to work overtime, MOTOTRBO™ portable radios will too, with battery life that’s up to 40 percent longer than that of traditional analog radios.

More Safety and Security for Your People
With the GPS-based Location Services application, you can easily keep track of the people and vehicles within your force—no delays if help is needed.
In addition, all MOTOTRBO™ radios support emergency call signalling—which provides flexible emergency response options even for operations that do not have a central dispatcher.

Prioritize communication immediately.
Emergencies do happen and you need to communicate with your workers when they do. MOTOTRBO’s transmit interrupt suite – with voice interrupt, emergency voice interrupt and data over voice interrupt – enables you to prioritize critical communication the moment you need it.

The Nearby Support You Need
Your local Motorola dealer provides comprehensive service—including service under the MOTOTRBO™ standard warranty.

Get exceptional value and cut operating costs.
By utilizing TDMA digital technology, MOTOTRBO enables two virtual channels within a single 12.5 kHz licensed repeater channel – double the capacity of analog. Since you don’t need a second repeater, you save on equipment costs, too. By integrating voice and data in one device, MOTOTRBO saves you the expense of additional equipment for text messaging and GPS location tracking. And to help control the cost of replacing batteries prematurely, our leading-edge IMPRES technology automatically maintains your battery fleet to lengthen battery life. Migrate at your own pace. With MOTOTRBO, you can keep operations running smoothly during a change in communication systems. MOTOTRBO radios operate in analog and digital mode so you can use them on your existing analog system and begin migrating work teams over to digital – one talk group or department at a time – while maintaining communication across your entire workforce.

Extend coverage and expand capacity.
Meet your communication needs today and in the future with a variety of MOTOTRBO solutions:

  • IP Site Connect uses a standard IP network to extend the voice and data capabilities of MOTOTRBO. You can create a continuous network that covers your employees at 15 geographically-dispersed sites – so no matter where they are, they are rapidly and reliably connected. Or you link up to 15 sites to create wide area coverage or enhance coverage at a single site with physical barriers like buildings
  • Capacity Plus is the single site digital trunking solution that maximizes the capacity of your MOTOTRBO system. Use it to enable a high volume of voice and data communication for over a thousand users at a single site, without adding new frequencies.
  • Linked Capacity Plus is an entry level, multisite digital trunking system configuration for the MOTOTRBO platform. It leverages the high capacity of Capacity Plus, and the wide area coverage capabilities of IP Site Connect to keep your staff at various locations connected with an affordable high capacity, wide area trunking solution.

Warehouses, shipping docks and plant environments can be noisy places. MOTOTRBO’s background noise suppression and Intelligent Audio features help ensure communication comes through loud and clear. And with our complete line of audio accessories with leading-edge IMPRES™ audio technology, your workers can wear headsets to further suppress ambient noise, improve voice intelligibility and amplify loudness. Now you can be confident they’ll clearly hear the message and not miss a call.
