The APX 7000XE radio is designed for personnel safety in extreme environments, combining the priorities of mission-critical users with Motorola’s 80 years of experience in ergonomics, design and technology for public safety. For the development of the APX 7000XE, Motorola worked directly with firefighters and other mission-critical users from Miami to Malaysia to determine what they needed in a mission-critical radio specifically for their rugged environment. As a result, the radio features all the elements these users requested most – from best-in-class audio and industry-leading ergonomics to advanced features such as intelligent lighting and voice announcement – allowing them to focus on their task and not the technology.
Curt Croley, senior director, Innovation & Design, Motorola Solutions said, “Motorola has embraced design as a key differentiator for more than 30 years, and we are very proud of the APX™ 7000XE radio, the reaction from our customers and recognition from the design industry. Not only did the team work with customers to gather feedback, but they also received training in customers’ environments to truly understand, first-hand, what their needs are. Every aspect of this radio was designed keeping in mind high stress, gloved use and impaired senses to deliver a product that allows our customers to excel in the toughest conditions.”
