How can the Motorola Solutions MTP8000Ex SERIES TETRA ATEX Device work for your organisation?


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.

MTP8550Ex Three Quarter Left Top 1The 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.

Oil and Gas MTP8000Ex Series 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 and Rescue MTP8000Ex Series


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.


Coal Mine MTP8000Ex SeriesMINING

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.



  • Loud and Clear Audio – optimised for excellent audio performance in all types of noisy environments. Audio through both the speaker and accessories is clearer even at full volume and users can be heard clearly against the loudest background noise. The MTP8000Ex is the loudest ATEX radio on the market
  • Advanced Ergonomics – the MTP8000Ex was engineered to redefine usability for people wearing protective clothing and heavy gloves, from the T-Bar profile to make it easier to hold and harder to drop, to the exaggerated control knob,  tactile keypad, enlarged emergency button and textured PTT button.
  • Enhanced Coverage – high receiver sensitivity and high transmit power gives the MTP8000Ex greater coverage and enhanced in-building performance. The LED coverage indicator at the base of the antenna alerts the user when coverage is good,  marginal or poor.
  • Rugged Design – the MTP8000Ex was built to work in the toughest and most hazardous environments, in both the cold and wet or the dust and heat with IP65, IP66 and IP67 ratings.
  • Extended Battery Life –the MTP8000Ex has a battery life in excess of 16 hours to last for a longer shift or to last the as long as needed in the event of an emergency or unplanned situation.
  • Easier to Use – the intuitive user interface, large main display, coverage indicator, textured PTT, tactile keypad and coverage indicator make the MTP8000Ex easier to use.
  • Top Display the MTP8000Ex secondary top display makes it easier to see emergency notifications, talk group status or battery condition.
  • Nameplate – the innovative nameplate on the MTP8000Ex means it can be easily identified without using external labels or markers and without compromising safety.
  • Bluetooth integrated – Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology means that a range of wireless accessories and collaborative devices such as heart rate monitors can be securely and easily paired with the radios.
  • Accessories – the MTP8000Ex Series has a full portfolio of accessories, including the Active  Noise Cancelling RSM featuring dual PTTs, Nexus connector and 3.5mm connector, tested together to provide a complete ATEX solution.
  • Accelerated Life Testing – all of our radios go through very thorough Accelerated Life Testing meaning a lower cost of ownership and a safer communication lifeline.
