R2 and Accessories

CP200 and CP200D Replacement – A seamless migration

The CP200 and CP200D offered increased features at a reduced cost alongside an industry-standard design and features. Due to global part shortages, Motorola created a new radio with better features that utilized different parts that weren’t subject to the global shortage. The result is the R2, a smaller, lighter, and slimmer design that is compatible with CP200d chargers and audio accessories.

The R2 radio also has 64 channels, instead of 4 for the CP200 and 16 for the CP200D. It has an extended range direct-mode to enhance communications. With enhanced privacy, audio profiles, and audio leveling.  It now has an improved IP55 (dust and water ingress protection) rating. And yes, this radio comes in both analog versions, for a more budget-friendly price, and digital versions. And the great news is Motorola is currently introducing this radio for the same price as the CP200D.

R2 Key Features

One of the key features of the MOTOTRBO R2 is its enhanced audio quality. The radio uses advanced digital signal processing (DSP) technology to filter out background noise and improve voice clarity, even in noisy environments. SINC+ noise suppressor uses advanced algorithms to single out and eliminate disruptive background noise. Users can select an audio profile to amplify low, middle or high frequencies to suit the listening environment to communicate with clarity regardless if they are near a punch press, pneumatic drill, bulldozer or other loud equipment. This feature is especially important for users who work in noisy environments such as construction sites or manufacturing facilities, where clear communication is critical for safety and productivity.

Another important feature of the MOTOTRBO R2 is its superior range, due to receiver sensitivity, high efficiency antennas and high interference immunity, the R2 will help users experience clear audio, even across a large warehouse or fields. The R2 is lightweight and only weighs less than 300 grams when carried with a high-capacity battery.

The MOTOTRBO R2 also offers a range of accessories to enhance its usability and is compatible with CP200d chargers and audio accessories, including remote speaker microphones, earpieces. This allows users to customize the radio to their specific needs and preferences, making it even more useful and convenient.
