The DP4000 series just got a lot safer (and a little bluer)

This week, Motorola Solutions introduced the DP4401 and DP4801 ATEX MOTOTRBO portable radios. These radios provide high quality communication with comprehensive user safety and class leading ATEX specifications allowing use when in environments containing potentially explosive gas and dust.

Motorola is a world leader in the development and deployment of digital radio communication solutions, and the DP4401 Ex and DP4801 Ex ATEX radios include a powerful feature set to harness the benefits of MOTOTRBO to deliver safe and reliable communications for users.

These radios support all the features available in the (non-ATEX approved) DP4401 and DP4801 except that the transmitter power is reduced in line with the IECEx standard. Mandown; GPS and Bluetooth are allready integrated in the DP4801.

More details about these radios here. The Press Release can be found here.

The DP3000 and DP4000 series are also available as Factory Mutual (FM) Approved.


  1. Hello Wayne

    We discovered that the audio quality is poor compared to the non Atex DP4401.Any suggestions on how to improve this>?

    Regards, Philip

    1. Please contact your Motorola supplier and ask that they investigate this. There could be multiple causes for this.

  2. Hello Wayne,
    I searched the spare parts numbers for both knobs from DP4401EX and I found the following: 36012005001 and 3612004001. I ordered that spare parts and when received I found that these knobs are for DP4401 without EX. Please, is it possible to give me the right spare numbers for both knobs from DP4401EX?
    Thank you.
    Please don't send me to a provider!

  3. I understood very well, but this isn't an intervention inside of the radio or other electronic things. Only two plastic knobs! Like a belt clip. Like an accessories cover.
    Thank you!

    1. Those parts are not orderable. The radio has to be sent to Motorola for repair. That is the rule of ATEX.
