The Sepura STP9000 is the flagship product of a truly innovative series of TETRA hand-portable radios, designed for users who want the best. It has inherited all the market-leading attributes of the existing STP8000 series, but fuses them with a new generation of highly innovative features which will be attractive to a broad range of end-users. With a large colour screen and full keypad, the STP9000 also boasts an IP67 rating (dust- and water-proof), advanced sensitive GPS, an enhanced and intuitive user interface and RFID capability. Available in both 380-430 MHz and 407-473 MHz bands, the STP9000 series is the hand-portable of choice for users operating in a variety of challenging environments and demanding a high performance, robust product.
The STP9000 offers users a considerable range of benefits, including:
Robustness- The STP9000 boasts an IP67 (dust- and water-proof) environmental protection rating, which means that it will still function after having been submerged in up to 1m of water for up to 30 minutes. In addition, new Connector Protector technology provides additional protection against the potential damage that salt water and salt fog can cause to the connectors.
Indoor / urban canyon location – the sensitive GPS in the STP9000 will allow users to report their location even in dense urban and some indoor locations.
Improved ease of use – the STP9000 provides an enhanced user interface, which offers three presentation styles, which users can select according to their personal preference. Compatability mode is similar to Sepura’s existing user interface (used on one million locations worldwide), enabling existing Sepura users to be immediately comfortable with the new STP9000. Grid and list modes will appear familiar to new users who may be used to user interfaces on smartphones or other cellular industry devices. In both cases, organisations will minimise training costs for existing staff and new recruits.
Long Battery Life
Smart keypad and display technology – Following detailed user feedback, Sepura has added “haptic” technology to the STP9000. Haptics produce a physical movement of the radio, felt series through the hand, which confirms to gloved users that the key press has been successful. In addition, the “Twist and Zoom” feature uses smartphone technology to allow a portrait image to be zoomed to full-screen size, allowing the user to see full detail of an image, such as a missing person, as they rotate the radio.
Operational efficiency – innovative hardware design blocks out background noise, whilst enhanced audio equalisation technology provides a radically enhanced full-duplex audio experience.
Ease of Use
Advanced resource management – tracking radios, particularly in a pooled system, can be difficult, so the STP9000’s built-in RFID tag will be of considerable benefit to many users.
Enhanced user safety – with the further battery life improvement that the STP9000 brings, the safety of users will be safeguarded.
Reduced cost of ownership – unlike new models from other manufacturers, the STP9000 is compatible with all STP8000 accessories, thereby helping organisations to keep costs down.
