Information - Motorola RDU4160d Radio

The Motorola RDU4160d radio has been replaced with the Motorola CP100d-UAD radio.

  • CP100d radios are not programmed to work out of the box on default RDX frequencies.
  • The CP100d can be programmed to match RDX frequencies, or any custom frequencies, by using CPS2.0 Lite, which is free Motorola programming software designed to work with all CP100d analog only radios.
  • CPS2.0 Lite can be downloaded along with default RDX frequency programming templates.
  • We can program CP100d radios to RDX default frequencies. A $10 tech fee will be charged for each programmed radio.
  • CP100d analog only models can be upgraded to analog/digital operation for a fee.
Clear, discreet and secure, the Motorola RDU4160d Two-Way UHF Radio might be the perfect choice for you, even if you have a lengthy and demanding list of requirements.
Featuring a powerful 4 watts over 16 channels on 89 business-exclusive radio frequencies, it enables your staff to communicate more effectively than ever before.
With up to 350,000 square feet of operational area that can cover as many as 30 floors, it's ideal for large workspaces and companies that need to work out of multiple buildings at the same time. If you need even more coverage, you can use a Ritron Jobcom base station; the RDU4160d is repeater-ready.

The Motorola RDU4160d Two-Way UHF Radio is simple to use, and because it has 16 channels, you can group users quickly and easily. You can even clone all of your two-way radio units to use the same settings by using our optional cloning cable.

With a metal, die-cast chassis wrapped in a durable polycarbonate overmold, the RDU4160d is one of the toughest two-way radios on the market. It can withstand high-powered jets of water, fog and so much more, and we know it can because it meets IP-54/55 ratings. It was made to stand up to MIL-STD 810 C, D, E and F, which means it can shrug off shock, temperature extremes and vibration better than any of your other equipment can.

Convenient, effective and efficient communication is all yours when you select the RDU4160d radio from Motorola for all your business needs. Moreover, when you order online from Tech Wholesale, you'll receive the top Motorola products at an affordable price and with expert, friendly service.

Motorola RDU4160d two-way radios operate via the UHF frequency, so you should buy them from our shop if you need quality indoor communication.

Five programmable buttons provide quick access to your favorite two-way radio features. You can assign individual channels to 16 different groups of employees. When separate groups talk on their own channels, distraction is at a minimum. You can clone all your 2-way radio units to use the same settings using an optional cloning cable.

Customer Programming Software lets you configure your own channels, frequencies and features using your PC. CPS is available as a free download and provides business friendly features such as: PL/DL defeat, Power Select (2 and 4-Watts), Radio Reporting of profiles and cloning, Manager Lock and Reverse Burst (eliminates excess noise).
