The IC-F3202DEX is a ATEX VHF digital two way radio from Icom. Built specifically for dangerous working environments such as oil, mining and chemical industries, the IC-F3202DEX has a 16-channel capacity with a channel announcement function. IP67 protection means that the radio has a full ingress protection against dust, whilst also being protected against water immersion up to 1 meter in depth for 30 minutes.

Features such as VOX Voice Activation are present on the IC-F3202DEX, meaning should hands free communication be needed it is a possibility. Lone Worker comes as standard, this measuring the radios inactivity, should the F3202DEX be inactive for a set period of time a warning will be sent to other radios in the fleet. Man Down works in a similar manner, should the radio be laid on its side for a set period of time then a signal will be sent out to other devices in the network.

Built in 5-Tone, 2-Tone, CTCSS and DTCS signalling capability allow for analogue mode group communications and selective calling with the IC-F3202DEX. Three programmable buttons including a red emergency button allow for customisation of the radio, meaning that the IC-F3202DEX can be fully adapted to the users needs.

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 Icom IC-F3202DEX.

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 IC-F3202DEX

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 IC-F3202DEX

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 IC-F3202DEX, 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 is built-in to the Icom IC-F3202DEX.
