Motorola EVX-S24 Rugged IP67 Digital 2-Way Radio Is Built To Last

Compact and Lightweight With Up to 12 Hour Battery Life

Yellow and Black Digital 2-Way RadiosMotorola rebranded the Vertex EVX-S24 earlier this year and added it to their commercial DMR digital portfolio. Available in yellow or black, it has been a popular choice by schools, construction, and hospitality customers. The EVX-S24 can be programmed with both digital and analog channels for easier migration to digital communications. At only 7.6 ounces it packs all the features you need for the safety and coordination of workers inside or outside buildings.

The EVX-S24 has an 8 character display, 256 channels, emergency button, and convenient Micro-USB charging port. The rugged IP67 submersibility rating and 3 year warranty make this a good investment for any business needing reliable voice communications.

Wide Variety of Accessories Available for EVX-S24

Depending on your coverage requirements, you may like the ATU-21FS super stubby antenna. It is only 2 inches tall and lets you carry the radio in your pocket. It may reduce your coverage depending on the number of walls you need to communicate through.

The EVX-S24 standard package includes the CD-65 single unit charging cradle. There is an optional CD-66 enhanced cradle that can charge a PMNN4468 spare battery. The VAC-6066 six pocket charger saves your AC wall outlets and helps keep track of your radio inventory.

1-Wire With Mic, PTT, Acoustic TubeThe Motorola MH-90A4B remote speaker-mic and the MH-89A4B earpiece microphone are the most popular audio accessories. We also offer a 1-wire surveillance kit with acoustic tube. There are custom leather carrying cases available and our neck strap is an option to consider. It has a rubber o-ring that slips under the belt clip and is a favorite with teachers, retail, and hospitality workers.

Choosing Plantronics Headsets – Wired, Bluetooth, or DECT 6.0?

Unified communications, noisy work areas, and the need for collaboration has increased the need for headsets. There are many types available and we found “one style does not fit all” in most organizations. Wireless headsets have become popular and allow workers to maintain communications when not at their desk. Today’s headsets also provide powerful analytics and require firmware upgrades for best performance.

plantronics authorised-partner-badgePlantronics has been a leader in headset comfort for over 50 years and offers wired or wireless headsets for all market segments. Recently, eight of our employees earned sales and technical certifications at Plantronics University for improved customer support.

Magnum Electronics is approved for all Plantronics certifications including unified communications (UC), contact centers (CC), and small & medium business (SMB). We can help select the best headset solution and support large deployments with Plantronics Hub or Manager Pro cloud-based software.

Plantronics Wired Headsets Are Reliable in High RF AreasCorded Headband Binaural Headset

Direct-connect headsets are still the best solution for areas with high radio-frequency interference. They are powered by the connected device and don’t need a battery charger. Choose binaural (dual ear) or monaural (single ear) depending on noise environment and user preference.

The Plantronics Blackwire 5200 series have USB-A, USB-C, or 3.5mm connector plugs. The EncorePro series and SupraPlus models are also popular wired models and are used on many Motorola dispatch consoles.

Plantronics Wireless Bluetooth Headset Choices

Bluetooth Headset Case Smartphone LaptopWireless Bluetooth headsets are the most popular for mobile workers. They easily connect to smartphones, tablets, and desktop computers. The Plantronics Voyager 5200 UC has superior noise-cancellation and advanced sensor technology. Conference calls, webinars, and important conversations can be taken in the vehicle or on the move.

Bluetooth 4.1 Binaural HeadsetPlantronics offers headsets with a BT300 Class 2 Bluetooth adapter (up to 30 ft range) and a BT600 Class 1 adapter with up to 98 ft range. Other popular Bluetooth models include Legend UC, Legend CS, Focus UC, M70, and Marque 2.

Bluetooth frequencies share the same band as WiFi so interference could cause problems if operating close to an access point.

Wireless DECT 6.0 Headsets for Maximum Distance from DeskphoneWireless DECT 6.0 Headset

The recommended Plantronics wireless headsets for use in facilities with dense WiFi and strong interference are the Savi 700 series, Savi 440, or CS520. They utilize DECT 6.0 frequencies that don’t interfere with WiFi. DECT 6.0 also provides better range than Bluetooth by allowing you to roam up to 350 feet from the base/charger. The Savi 700 and 400 series also have Bluetooth for easy connectivity to a computer.
