Meeting SOLAS requirements with MOTOTRBO

SOLAS Chapter II-2 details fire safety provisions including protection, detection and extinction and Regulation 10.10.4 requires that a minimum of two two-way portable radiotelephones are carried on board for each fire party, in order to provide a dedicated means of communication between fire-fighters and a crew member outside the incident area. Depending on the size and type of vessel, it may actually be required to carry more than two devices. From 1 July 2018, all ships will be required to comply with the regulation.

Although Regulation 10.10.4 does not specify the frequency band to be used by the fire-fighter radios, UHF frequencies are most commonly used for on-board communication as they provide better propagation within the metal structures of ships.

With exceptional voice quality, long battery life and ATEX-certified for safety, the MOTOTRBO DP4000 Ex Series meets the requirements of SOLAS Chapter II-2 Regulation 10.10.4 for fire-fighter radios carried on board ships.
