Motorola CP040

The Motorola CP040 offers simple radio communication for small and medium-sized organisations at a very competitive price.

Designed with small and medium-sized warehousing, agriculture, security, light industry and services customers in mind, the four channel CP040 requires minimal training and keeps team members in touch without distracting them with complicated features. Management can monitor all voice traffic and get a message to the team in seconds, however large the site.

The CP040 is supported by a number of Motorola Original Accessories including carrycases and straps, earpieces and headsets, batteries and chargers all designed to tailor the radio to the requirements of the user.

Easy to Use
Using the CP040 is second nature thanks to the tough and textured buttons, chunky rotary channel, volume knobs and tricolour status LED. In addition, two programmable buttons can be set to give immediate access to the four most often used features, making communication even simpler.

Targeted Communication
Available in two versions, with four or sixteen communication channels, you can use the CP040 to liaise with the whole team or change channel to discuss a more complicated issue one to one.
Keep in Touch
The CP040 has a high/low power setting that allows users to extend battery life for up to 19 hours2 from a single battery charge. This can be done by switching to low power when the user is in close proximity to other users, as the range is reduced and less power is required. Avoid missed messages with the built-in ‘scan’ function that searches all channels for activity.
Motorola Quality
Designed and built to the gruelling American standard MIL spec 810F and exceeding the exacting IP54 standard for environmental protection, the CP040 has also passed the Motorola Accelerated Life Test which replicates five years of hard use in the field.
Quality Audio
Benefiting from Motorola’s market-leading experience in designing and manufacturing two-way radio, the CP040 provides excellent audio quality thanks to Motorola’s voice compression technology, X-Pand™.
As you would expect from Motorola, the CP040 is supported by a wide range of energy, audio and carry accessories, changing the CP040 into a customised solution.
