WATCH! Fascinating Video Shows Motorola Radios Being Tested to the EXTREME!

From being dropped great heights onto concrete floors to being frozen solid in a giant freezer, Motorola’s Accelerated life Testing program puts two-way radios through their paces to ensure they can withstand pretty much anything you and your staff can throw at them. The tests which simulate 5 years of hard use and involve: Water resistance tests – rotating 360 degree water jets, simulate blowing rain onto each radio.   Extreme temperature tests (shock tests) – radios are frozen solid before being suddenly thrust into extreme heat.   Vibration capsules – radios are placed in individually vibrating capsules to simulate rough handling and transportation vibration.   Rusting and corrosion tests – radios are encased in salt and fog to test rust corrosion.   Solar radiation tests – radios are exposed to a radiation chamber to ensure no surface discoloration is experienced.   Watch the video to see exactly what your two-way radio goes through to ensure it’s ready for a life on your site, factory or outlet:
