PT series portable radios from Ritron Inc. are suitable for two-way radio use in manufacturing environments, processing facilities, warehouses, and distribution facilities. The small, lightweight radios feature narrow frequency channel steps for clear communication with little interference.

Nine programmable function buttons allow the radios to be customized to particular application requirements. These FCC narrow-band-compliant radios feature 255 channels with channel scan, priority scan, and scan resume functions. Built-in selective signaling alerts the user automatically to priority messaging. Audio output of 1 W makes the radio easy to hear, even in noisy locations.

Weighing 10 oz., the radios are tested to Mil-STD 810 F for temperature, humidity, shock, and vibration and are IP6- rated for resistance to dust and water. Each includes DTMF encode, an emergency call button, status icons, and an alphanumeric LED. Each radio includes a spring-action belt clip, flex antenna, long-lasting battery, and a rapid rate charger.
