Before being issued, radios are configured to meet your operational requirements. This is normally done by a Service Provider either within your organisation or as part of a service agreement. Users of Sepura radios should address questions about the radio and its operation to the team that issued and support the radio.
To be able to provide effective support worldwide, Sepura have international partners who will distribute radios and provide support. Sepura provide in-depth training and support to our partners and we work closely with them to ensure that they are well placed to deliver high quality support. If you have purchased the radio from one of our partners please contact them for support as they will be best placed to understand your application and requirements.
To sanitise a Sepura hand-portable or mobile radio:
- A soft brush can be used to remove visible debris and stubborn contaminates.
- Use a damp cloth soaked with a diluted mild detergent to clean the external surfaces. Do NOT use chemical aerosol or abrasive cleaners.
- Radios that are IP67 rated, such as the SC20, STP9000 and the intrinsically safe STP8X Series, can be rinsed under gently running water with a mild detergent. The battery and antenna MUST be fitted to the radio before rinsing under running water.
- Shake the radio to remove excess water from behind the keypad before drying.
- Dry the radio with a clean lint free cloth and then sanitise the radio using Clinell® universal sanitising wipes or equivalent.
- Allow the radio to dry before operating.
If your radio has been subject to contamination, seek advice from your local Health and Safety Authority.
Caution! Do not dry the radio using a microwave oven or with any other heating device.
Warning! PERSONAL SAFETY. Always obey your local health and safety procedures when using potentially harmful cleaning solutions. Appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) should be worn when cleaning the radio.
Caution! Always read the instructions for using the sanitising product carefully and obey all safety instructions relating to use. Regular use of this sanitising product may degrade the hard coat protection of the radio keypad.
Sepura provide a range of branded accessories for our products, the details of these can be found on our website. When seeking to purchase new accessories, users should contact their fleet manager or the partner that issued the radio as there may be restrictions on the accessories that can be used. For information on accessory availability and pricing please contact your local distributor.
Sepura's Channel Partners are able to access the Information Centre from the Sepura webpage. To request a log in please email email@example.com. Please note that access is only available to partners with agreements in place and that we are not able to process requests from private or group email addresses.
Quick reference guides for the terminals are provided with each radio when shipped. Please note though, that Sepura products are highly configurable to suit a broad range of organisations and operational processes. You should first contact the team that issued your radio as they will be able to advise how that particular radio has been configured and is expected to be used.
The orange or red button is the emergency key. This can be used to trigger an emergency call, depending on how the radio has been configured. On Sepura's latest radios, this key is red. A red emergency key indicates that the product is capable of initiating an emergency call by pressing this key when the radio is switched off.
Check with the team who issued the radio on how and when this should be used.
This is built-in screensaver that is on the SC20 and STP; it cannot be removed or configured.
The radio will show this message if the battery has been removed whilst the Transmit Inhibit function was active. To recover it, switch off the radio by pressing and holding the Mode button, then switch on again using the Mode button.
The software is supplied with the radio and maybe upgraded when new releases become available subject to maintenance agreements. The software version in deployed radios is managed by your local fleet manager who will issue approved software and configuration that supports your operational needs. It is important to maintain the configuration and consistency across the fleet and it is not recommended that users should attempt to upgrade or change the software in the radio.
Software for managing the radios is available when purchasing radios, your distributor will be able to supply information on the type of licence and training that can be provided.
