Unlimited Mobility. Extreme Performance. Working together with firefighters around the world, we designed the APX XE Series; a complete portfolio of ergonomically advanced, ultra-rugged radios and accessories that is safe, easy and efficient to use. Firefighters said they wanted equivalent extreme features as the APX XE Series including a larger display, exaggerated control knobs and the capability to communicate with surrounding municipalities within an all-band radio solution. The APX 8000XE brings together not only these requirements, but also the integration of WiFi for programming flexibility. The APX 8000XE is redefining mission critical communications by delivering an ultra-durable radio that combines unlimited interoperability, loud audio and secure WiFi connectivity. With a dedicated channel knob and ability to withstand 500?F (260?C) heat exposure, the APX XE500 Remote Speaker Microphone is the perfect companion to the APX 8000XE. When combined, the APX 8000XE All-Band Portable Radio and XE500 Remote Speaker Microphone create the ultimate mission critical solution designed for safety personnel in extreme environments.
