The NX-3200E is a VHF digital two way radio from Kenwood. A compact yet durable radio, the NX-3200E is built to IP67 rating, this ensures the radio has a full Ingres protection against dust whilst also being submergible in 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. Supporting both MXDN and DMR digital protocols, the NX-3200E is capable of performing both mixed digital and FM analogue operation protocols. This model of the NX-3200 has a display and full key pad, although other variations with a display and partial keypad and one with just a simple black box design are available.

Packed full of features, the NX-3200E is designed with improved efficiency and worker safety in mind. 23 Programmable function keys allow for the customization of the radio to the users needs, with important functions being easily accessible when needed. Emergency functions such as a call function and key allow for fast response in specific situations, whilst a transmit interrupt allows for all ongoing communications to be interrupted when an important message needs to be portrayed. The NX-3200E has both Lone Worker and Man Down functions, these helping to ensure worker safety through monitoring the activity levels and orientation of the radio, helping to notify other radio users should an issue occur. GPS can work in connection with these features, helping to quickly locate the operative having issues, also helping to improve efficiency of the workforce by monitoring regular routes and patterns.

The Kenwood NX-3200E has a 7-colour light bar indicator on the top panel, flashing different colours to notify the user of incoming calls from differing channels. Built to military standards (MIL-STD-810 C/D/E/F/G) the radio is fit for purpose in a variety of environmental conditions, continuing to operate seamlessly from as low as -30°C through to 50°C. The NX-3200E is the Kenwood 14-Pin variant of this radio, with a 2-Pin connector also being available in the NX3220E. The radio comes as standard with a KNB-55L 1480mAh Li-Ion battery, belt clip and antenna with the charger being available as a separate purchase.

Features Explained

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 Kenwood NX-3200E.

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 Kenwood NX-3200E.

DMR TDMA

TDMA is a technology that allows several users to share the same frequency channel by dividing the signal into different time slots. With DMR this is two time slots to every 12.5KHz frequency channel allocation. Before DMR every 12.5KHz frequency allocation could carry just one broadcast of RF traffic. Now with DMR 12.5KHz bandwidth allows two voice channels. See the video below for an explanation on how this works.

Information Video

 DMR TDMA is built-in feature to the Kenwood NX-3200E.

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 built-in to the Kenwood NX-3200E.

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 Kenwood NX-3200E.

Bluetooth

Bluetooth conectivity allows audio accessories to be connected to the radio wirelessly. Most manufacturers offer Bluetooth earpieces whcih are only suitable for their products. This is because they generally only want you to choose their accessories, but also because of the different ways their radios work.

 Bluetooth is built-in to the Kenwood NX-3200E.

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.

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.

 VOX Voice Activation is built-in to the Kenwood NX-3200E.
