Motorola MOTOTRBO SLR8000 Base Station/Repeater


The Motorola SLR 8000 Base Station/Repeater provides a modular, flexible analog and digital station designed for today’s communication systems and for the future

The SLR 8000 can either be configured as a stand-alone base station/repeater or as a base station/repeater connected to a back-end network, as in the case of operating in IP Site Connect mode. As a base station/repeater, it listens on one uplink frequency, and then re-transmits on a downlink frequency, thus providing the RF interface to the field subscribers. When configured for analog station operation, the repeater or base station is designed to operate with most existing analog systems, which enables a smooth migration to the MOTOTRBO system.
When configured for digital operation, the base station/repeater offers additional services. The digital base station/repeater operates in TDMA mode, which essentially divides one channel into two virtual channels using time slots; therefore the user capacity is doubled. The base station/repeater utilizes embedded signaling to inform the field radios of the busy/idle status of each channel (time slot), the type of traffic, and even the source and destination information.

This manual covers all versions of the MOTOTRBO SLR 8000 Base Station/Repeater, unless otherwise specified. It includes all the information necessary to maintain peak product performance and maximum working time, using levels 1 and 2 maintenance procedures.
For safe installation, operation, service and repair of this equipment, follow the safety precautions and instructions described below.
