Detailed Information

The PD985 is a digital two way radio from Hytera. A channel capacity of 1024 supplies sufficient communications for a business of any size, whilst also having the capabilities to host both group and individual calls on each channel. Pre-programmed text messages are able to be sent from the PD985, allowing for communications with less urgency to be made via the press of a button. Mixed mode scanning allows for both analogue and digital channels to be searched, ensuring that no conversations are missed.

Built to IP68 standards the PD985 is completely protected against dust intrusion, this whilst also being safeguarded against submersion in water for extended periods of time. MIL-STD-810 C/D/E/F/G ensures the PD685s reliability in a variety of environmental conditions, continuing to operate seamlessly whether the radio is being used from -30°C through to 60°C.

The PD985 is arguably the worlds most advanced digital two way radio, this because it boasts industry first features such as single frequency repeater mode and full duplex mode. Lone Worker is built-in to the radio, a feature that helps to ensure the safety of workers by monitoring activity levels. Should the radio be inactive for a pre-set period of time then a beep will be sounded, if still not responded to an alert will be sent to the base station or other radios within the network. Both Man Down feature and GPS can be added to the PD985 as an additional extra, this can be organised through selecting this option from the drop down menu to the right.

Features Explained

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 Demonstration Video

For more information on GPS, download this Motorola GPS information sheet.

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

 GPS is an optional extra for the Hytera PD985.

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 PD985.

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 PD985.

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 PD985.

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 PD985, 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.

Man Down Demonstration Video

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 optional extra for the Hytera PD985.
