Voice Annunciation: This programmable feature announces either the channel position selected or a marine channel number (alias) – this gives further assurance to the user that they’ve selected the correct channel allowing them to focus on the task at hand.

Environmental Protection to IP68 (2 meters for 4 hours): The DT844 offers the highest submersibility rating of any manufacturer. This protects against corrosion, withstanding total immersion in water to a depth of 2 meters for 4 hours to protect against the likely hazards encountered in extremely wet environments.

Robust Accessory Socket: DT844 accessory socket has been specifically designed so that when an accessory is secured to the portable, the connection can withstand any amount of punishment; from dropping to careless misuse. The rugged, multi-pin interface and Micro-USB socket are both submersible and gold-plated to minimize any risk of damage and protect against corrosion. To ensure the integrity of IS protection levels any accessory connected to the handset automatically undergoes a validation process to safeguard against non-compliant accessories being used. All DT844 accessories incorporate a robust locking connector to further safeguard the safety of the user.

Li-Ion Battery Technology and Improved Talk Time: DT844 radios are supplied with the latest intelligent Lithium-Ion battery technology as standard. One key advantage of Lithium-Ion battery technology is the way it eliminates the «memory effect», meaning that there is no need to fully discharge your battery before recharging. As a result of this, you are assured of a full charge each and every time you take your Entel battery from its charger.

Superior Audio: DT844 portables deliver loud and crisp audio no matter what environment you are in.

This automatically detects the type of accessory connected and optimizes the audio accordingly to deliver the very best performance.
