r765IS by Motorola
When communication is mission critical

r765IS by Motorola is built for companies where communication is mission critical.  r765IS is an Intrinsically Safe (IS), feature rich, rugged and durable monolith handset, built for working in high-noise, hazardous, chemical or gaseous environments.  This device is designed for use by industrial, petrochemical and utility companies.  r765IS by Motorola  is certified for Military Specification 810F requirements including humidity, high temperature, low temperature, dust shock, vibration, radiation, salt fog and blowing rain.

r765IS combines Sprint’s more than 15 years experience in push-to-talk with a device that is incapable of releasing sufficient electrical or thermal energy to ignite fuel and cause a fire or explosion.  Intrinsically safe devices are safe to use in hazardous areas that may contain flammable gasses, vapors or dust.  The IS version includes an encased intrinsically safe battery capable of 0.6 Watts transmit power in the 800/900 SMR bands and emergency button operation.

Sprint is the undisputed leader in push-to-talk, serving the largest community of users in the world.  Nextel Direct Connect has set the industry standard for push-to-talk and serves millions on the fastest national push-to-talk network, and offers international push-to-talk services.  Nextel Direct Connect also offers call set up times of less than one second.

Certain mobile phone features may not be available throughout the entire network or their functionality may be limited. All features, functionality and other product specifications are subject to change without notice or obligation.
1 Network dependent feature, not available in all areas. Airtime, data charges, and/or additional charges may apply. PTT connectivity requires PTT compatible phones.
2 Intrinsic safety (IS) is a protection technique for safe operation of electronic equipment in explosive atmospheres. The theory behind intrinsic safety is to ensure that the available electrical and thermal energy in the system is always low enough that ignition of the hazardous atmosphere cannot occur. This is achieved by ensuring that only low voltages enter the hazardous area, and that all electric supply and signal wires are protected by zener safety barriers.
3 This device supports Bluetooth HSP, HFP profiles. In order for Bluetooth devices to communicate with one another, they must utilize the same Bluetooth profile. To determine the profiles supported by other Motorola devices, visit For other devices, contact their respective manufacturer.
Certain Bluetooth features including those listed may not be supported by all compatible Bluetooth-enabled devices, and/or the functionality of such features may be limited in certain devices, or by certain wireless carriers. Contact your wireless carrier about feature availability and functionality.
