The MTP8000Ex Series TETRA ATEX radios have been specifically designed for end-users who need to work in hazardous environments with potentially explosive gases or chemical vapours, flammable liquids or combustible dust.
The MTP8000Ex Series sets a new standard in TETRA ATEX radios. From their form to their function, these new radios have been carefully engineered to address workers’ needs and offer the ultimate in safe, reliable and efficient communications in hazardous environments.
Workers in hazardous environments need an ATEX radio that can stand up to the toughest treatment and be heard against the loudest background noise whilst keeping them safe. Meeting the latest Version 6 of the ATEX and IECEx safety standards, the MTP8000Ex Series sets a new standard in TETRA ATEX radios.
The MTP8000Ex Series gives workers the ability to work safer, work smarter and work anywhere with powerful audio, extended coverage, extended battery life, greater ruggedness, advanced ergonomics and increased usability.
Is the MTP8000Ex Series heavier than the old MTP850Ex?
The MTP8000Ex is heavier than the old MTP850Ex but due to its T-Bar form factor it is easier to hold and harder to drop and actually feels lighter to carry in the hand.
Why doesn’t the MTP8000Ex Series have Zone 0 ATEX certification?
Zone ‘0’ is a place in which an explosive atmosphere is present continuously or for long periods of time or frequently and hence making them potentially no access areas until made safe. The MTP8000Ex Series Zone 1 certification is suitable for 99%(+) types of hazardous environments.

KEY MARKETS THAT UTILISE THE MOTOROLA SOLUTIONS TETRA MTP8000Ex
OIL & GAS
Workers in the Oil & Gas industry are constantly at risk escaping flammable gases or liquids and they are often required to work in extreme conditions of heat and dust or cold and wet. Good communications are the key to operating effectively in these dangerous conditions.
FIRE & RESCUE
Fire and Rescue teams have long relied on two-way radios to provide effective communications and save lives. But when firefighters respond to a traffic accident involving a petrol tanker or an incident at a petrochemical plant, they need ATEX radios to communicate safely and prevent an incident from becoming an emergency.
Escaping flammable gases, such as methane, are a major risk in the mining industry. Communication is key to working effectively in such hostile and dangerous conditions and ATEX radios are needed to keep miners safe particularly when explosives are used.
AirporAirports are complex facilities where effective and reliable communications are of great importance. But wherever there is potential exposure to fuel, there is a risk of explosion. Increasingly, ATEX radios are used in areas where workers and on-site fire crews are in close proximity to aviation fuel to keep them safe.
