New Motorola CP100d Entry Level Digital Radio Will Replace the EVX-261 After October

Digital DMR Handheld PortableMotorola Solutions announced the cancellation of the Vertex EVX-261 DMR digital radio and no orders will not be accepted after 10/31/2020. The result will be EVX-261 users will not be able to add a digital radio with compatible batteries, chargers, audio accessories, antennas, or belt clips. It may be a good time to refresh your radio communications and take advantage of the technology improvements.

The recommended replacement is a new MOTOTRBO offering in the commercial products product tier. The new CP100d uses the same batteries and charger as the CP185 analog-only radio. CP185 users now have an easy path to upgrade to digital communications.

VHF or UHF Digital DMRThe CP100d uses the popular 2-pin audio connector that is used with the CP200d, CP185, and BPR40. The radio will have improved battery life and there is an option to add a display.

The non-display radio has 16 channel capability and the display can handle a maximum of 160 frequencies. For more info download the CP100d Data Sheet.

JPS NXU-2A RoIP Network Extension Unit Improved and Upgraded to NXU-2B

IP 2-way Radio Gateway

The popular JPS NXU-2A network extension unit has been improved and will begin shipping next month as the NXU-2B. It uses the same cabinet and is fully functional in systems with the older NXU-2A. The new model no longer uses potentiometers so level setting can be accomplished remotely using a browser. This eliminates a costly service call to the transmitter site.

Improve handheld radio coverage using internet

Another big change is the 15-pin audio interface connector has been redesigned to allow any of the standard JPS radio cables to be connected directly to the unit. The NXU-2A required the included crossover adapter to work but half the time it was left in the box.

In addition to solid state keying, the NXU-2B will have a PTT relay and the ability to interface to transmitters via 600 ohm balanced audio.

Below is a video showing the capabilities of the NXU network extension unit.

Magnum Electronics has been an authorized JPS Interoperability reseller since 2005 and support the entire JPS product line. Contact us at our Dover, Delaware office during normal business hours. The phone number is (302) 734-9250 or use the form below.
