Detailed Information

The PD505 is a popular handheld digital radio from Hytera. With impressive safety features and the ability to support digital and analogue communications, this radio is ideal for a business that is transitioning between analogue and digital radios. The PD505 is fit for purpose in many a working environment, from events and hospitality to a manufacturing plant.

Some of the features Hytera have put into the PD505 include an emergency mode, this allows for an alarm to be raised with high priority to a base station or a connected fleet of radios. Identifying which radio user is in trouble allowing for a fast resolution. Quick text messages can be pre-programmed into the device, this allowing for easy communication between a fleet should it be needed. A radio check feature is available, allowing other radios to ensure whether a radio is available for communication.

Built to IP54 standards, this device is protected against dust and splashes of water. The Hytera PD505 also has voice activation, this allows for hands free communication should it be needed. This radio comes with a 1500mAh Li-Ion battery as standard which has a battery life of around 8 to 14 hours, but should you need a prolonged batter life an upgrade is available with the 2000mAh Li-Ion battery which will be in operation for up to a full 24 hours.

Features Explained

Lone Worker Feature

Lone Worker is a feature found on many two way radios where it's able to send a pre-determined signal, for example a distress call or alarm, to other radios in range, Lone Worker requires some type of interaction from the radio user after a period of radio inactivity. An example of this is the radio can be set to require the radio operator to interact with his or her radio once every 30 minutes. If they fail to do so, their radio will start making an audible sound. If there is still no interaction with his or her radio within 1 further minute, a alarm will sound to other team members to tell them a team member is not responding to Lone Worker. The supervisor can then dispatch another team member to the non-reponsive team member's last known location to offer assistance.

 Lone Worker is available with firmware upgrade for thePD505.

Digital Basic Privacy

Basic Privacy uses a fixed "key" which is set when the radio is programmed, of which there are 255 possible "keys". Whilst this level of privacy is technically basic encryption, it's nevertheless relatively insecure. Comparable to analogue 'inversion' scrambling, it will prevent the 'casual' listener from hearing anything, but does not guarantee against eavesdropping.

 Basic Digital Privacy is built-in to the Hytera PD505.

Channel Scanning

Channel scanning enables the user to monitor a number of channels and respond when a transmission comes through. The scan feature can usually be programmed to include or exclude channels from the scan. Scanning fewer channels makes the scan faster.

A common example is when there is a private channel and community channel programmed. This is usually the case for a shop which is a member of the local business crime reduction (or shop-watch / pub-watch) scheme. The radio would "scan", or alternate between, both channels. Normally, they might only use channel 1 for their own private use within the organisation. But when a transmission (or call) comes through on the local business crime reduction (or shop-watch) scheme channel becomes active. Then within a few seconds the radio would revert back to it's original channel 1.

Digital hybrid radios can usually scan either or both digital and analogue channels simultaneously. This allows for an extremely flexible scan facility where the user can monitor many channels across both analogue and digital modes.

 Channel Scanning is built-in to the Hytera PD505.

Voice Activation (VOX)

Voice activation, commonly refered to as VOX, allows the user to initiate the radio to transmit, simply by using their voice. Some radios only allow VOX capability via an external audio accessory such as an earpiece or headset which is VOX-enabled or has a VOX button.

Activating Voice Activation or VOX

There are two possible ways of enabling voice activation (VOX). The first is that we can program a VOX-enable / VOX disable button on the radio. The other option is that we supply an audio accessory, an earpiece or headset, that has a VOX button. Contact us for more information about this.

Programming May Be Required

There may be programming required to activate VOX on your radio. In any event, please talk to our knowledgeable staff and we will be able to offer advice on VOX activation.

 Voice Activation (VOX) is built-in to the Hytera PD505, but a VOX-enabled audio accessory, such as an earpiece or headset, may be required.
