Detailed Information

The PD705 is an analogue/digital two way radio from Hytera. This package includes 6x Hytera PD705, either 6 standard or covert earpieces and a Hytera MCA08 6-way charger. Ideal for a business looking to either invest in a new communications system or add to a current fleet, this package is great for a variety of differing working environments due to the TC705’s flexibility.

Built to IP67 standards the PD705 has full Ingres protection against dust, whilst also being safeguarded against immersion in water for up to 30 minutes. Features such as Lone Worker built in allow for the safe use of the radio by operatives, signalling to the group should a radio be inactive for a pre-set period of time. VOX Voice activation allows for hands free use of the radio should it be needed, with both the standard and covert earpiece being VOX compatible.

Along with the Radio, Charger and Earpieces the PD705 also comes with the accessories you would usually receive when purchasing a singular radio. As standard a 1500mAh Li-Ion battery is supplied, but should you need a larger capacity battery other options are available, a belt clip and a choice of either a whip or stubby antenna come alongside each radio in the pack.

Standard The Standard package comes equipped with the Hytera EHN17, a D Shape earpiece that has both an inline microphone and push to talk button. Ideal for a variety of working environments, the EHN17 package will ensure easier communications in both retail and hospitality environments.

Covert A covert package supplies a Hytera EAN23 alongside each of the radios. An acoustic tube earpiece with an inline microphone and push to talk button, this selection will allow for effective communications whilst in a noisy working environment. This could be used for door staff or security in a nightlife setting, or within an industry based on a noisy construction site or a factory.

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 built-in to the Hytera PD705.

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 PD705.

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 PD5705.

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 PD705, but a VOX-enabled audio accessory, such as an earpiece or headset, may be required.

Man-down Feature

Man Down provides remote monitoring of workers by detecting if their radio is upright, or if the radio is on it's side assumes there may be a problem. Radios which support Man Down are fitted with an accelerometer (or similar device) which allows them to detect the orientation of the radio. If somebody slips or falls, they are likely to be on their side, Man Down will automatically detect this, activate and transmit an alert to call for help from a supervisor or other team members. This works is almost the same way as your smart phone which knows if you have it positioned portrait mode or landscape mode. See this video below to see how the a works.

The Accelerometer Science

The science which allows man-down to work is almost the same way as your smart phone which knows if you have it positioned portrait mode or landscape mode. See this video below to see how the a works.

 Man Down is an additional option for the Hytera PD705

Two Way Radio GPS

GPS (global positioning system) is a mechanism which a device can use a number of in-range satellites to trangulate it's position and transmit that position back to the repeater or base station. This enables the supervisor to more effectively manage team members by knowing their current location.

GPS is designed for outdoor tracking. See "Indoor tracking" for indoor solutions.
