Created with Sketch. XPT

Hytera XPT (Extended Pseudo Trunking) enables you to use limited spectrum resources more efficiently, dynamically assigning channel resource without needing a dedicated control channel.

Created with Sketch. Full Duplex Calls

Have a conversation on a call rather than a classic one-way transmission

Created with Sketch. Voice Recording

Record your transmission and call data for future analysis. Requires micro SD card and separate application for playback, chargeable licence.

Created with Sketch. Single Frequency Repeater

Utilise your PD985 radio as a repeater to improve coverage across your site (chargeable licence)

Created with Sketch. Man Down

Optional (PD985G only), the man down feature will let you know if the radio has been tilted past a certain angle. This may happen for instance if the radio user has fallen over or is unconscious or injured. The alarm will be triggered after a warning is issued to the user.

Created with Sketch. Lone Worker

The lone worker feature uses a timer in the radio to measure inactivity. If the timer expires, a warning is issued, and if there is no response to that, the alarm is triggered.

Created with Sketch. Emergency Mode

Raise an alarm with top priority to a base station or to other radios with the pre-programmed emergency mode, identifying the ID of the person issuing the alarm. Also receive emergency notifications.

Created with Sketch. GPS

Optional (PD985G only), enabling location based services to improve safety and control.
