The MOTOTRBO Series Digital Portable radio meets IP57
specifications, allowing the radio to withstand adverse field
conditions such as being submersed in water.
•If the radio has been submersed in water, shake the radio
well to remove any water that may be trapped inside the
speaker grille and microphone port. Trapped water could
cause decreased audio performance.
•If the radio’s battery contact area has been exposed to water,
clean and dry battery contacts on both the radio and the
battery before attaching the battery to the radio. The residual
water could short-circuit the radio.
•If the radio has been submersed in a corrosive substance
(e.g. saltwater), rinse the radio and battery in fresh water then
dry the radio and battery.
•To clean the exterior surfaces of the radio, use a diluted
solution of mild dishwashing detergent and fresh water (i.e.
one teaspoon of detergent to one gallon of water).
•Never poke the vent (hole) located on the radio chassis below
the battery contact. This vent allows for pressure equalization
in the radio. Doing so may create a leak path into the radio
and the radio’s submersibility may be lost.
•Never obstruct or cover the vent, even with a label.
•Ensure that no oily substances come in contact with the vent.
•The radio with antenna attached properly is designed to be
submersible to a maximum depth of 1 meter (3.28 feet) and a
maximum submersion time of 30 minutes. Exceeding either
maximum limit or use without antenna may result in damage
to the radio.
•When cleaning the radio, do not use a high pressure jet spray
on the radio as this will exceed the 1 meter depth pressure
and may cause water to leak into the radio.
Do not disassemble the radio. This could
damage radio seals and result in leak paths into
the radio. Radio maintenance should only be
done in service depot that is equipped to test
and replace the seal on the radio.
