Detailed Information

The PD505LF is a digital license free radio from Hytera. Supporting both analogue and digital communications, the PD505LF is ideal for a number of working environments such as manufacturing, events or hospitality. Built to IP54 standards, this radio has a limited ingress protection against dust, whilst also being able to withstand splashes of water. Coming with a 1500mAh battery, this gives you up to 16 hours of use with the PD505LF in digital mode.

VOX Voice Activation is present on this device, allowing for hands free communication should it be needed. A single programmable button allows for customisation of the device, which also has basic encryption. Pre-Programmed text messages are also able to be sent from the PD505LF, up to 256 characters these messages can be used in order to relay a non-urgent message.

Supports analog and digital radio

The PD505LF was developed in compliance with the ETSI Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) standard. The handheld radio supports license-free operation according to DMR Tier I. It can also be operated as an analog radio.

Ergonomical design

The PD505LF handheld radio is easy to operate and highly reliable, which is indispensable in critical situations.

Individual button design

The two rotary buttons of the radio transceiver are separated by the antenna. This design prevents operating errors.


The PD505LF meets all requirements of the open DMR ETSI standard (ETSI-TS 102 361-1, -2, -3), the MIL810-C/D/E/F/G standard, and degree of protection IP54. Thus excellent features are offered even under harsh operating conditions.
