Detailed Information

The MD785 is a digital mobile radio from Hytera. Built to high standards the MD785 is IP54 Ingres Protected meaning that it has a limited protection against dust, whilst also being safeguarded against splashes of water from all angles. An ideal radio for multiple environments, the MD785 wouldn’t look out of place in an office environment or installed into a vehicle, this radio offers high quality professional communications in the form of a mobile unit.

An amass of features are readily programmed to the MD785, with a GPS version of the radio also available in the MD785G. Lone worker is present on the standard version ensuring the safety of the operative, this by monitoring the activity levels of the radio, should the radio be inactive for a pre-set period of time a warning is issued that if it ignored an alarm will be triggered. Emergency mode allows for an alarm with top priority to be sent to either a base station or other radios within the fleet, this identifying the radio ID of the person issuing the alarm allowing for fast response.

The MD785 is available for both UHF and VHF frequencies, whilst holding a channel capacity of 1024 across 64 zones. VOX Voice Activation is a possibility with the MD785, this allowing for hands free communications should it be needed with the radio. 7 Programmable buttons are present allowing for the customization of the radio to the users needs, making frequently used functions easily accessible when needed.

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 MD785.

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 MD785.

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 MD785.

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 MD785
