 WD-K10TR & WD-K10PBS - Compact yet offer long talk time

The Kenwood WD-K10TR transceiver is amazingly small and light at only 118g and 20mm in depth (front to back), the size of a business card. The small size of the Kenwood WD-K10TR transceiver makes it easy to work with all day long. That said,despite its compact design, it can operate on a single battery charge for up to an unprecedented 20+ hours.

The Kenwood WD-K10PBS portable base unit (repeater) which is also ultra lightweight at just 135g, can be used as a portable base station or transceiver. In portable base-station mode, WD-K10PBS operates for up to 8 hours while communicating with up to 4 transceivers. In Transceiver mode, it operates for 25 (max) hours.

 Superior digital technology ensures clear communications

Kenwood DECT system is a fully digital radio communications system and supports high-quality audio, which means that messages and instructions are relayed clearly. Since the Kenwood DECT system operates at 1.9GHz, Kenwood DECT will work side by side with wireless LAN equipment, which operate at 2.4GHz or 5GHz, and will not interfere with other radio equipment

Rugged Construction for Dustproof & Waterproof Performance

 Kenwood DECT offers IP67-equivalent* levels of dust-proofing and water-proofing. The Kenwood WD-K10TR transceivers are tough units that can be used with confidence around water and at outdoor events, even in poor weather conditions. If the Kenwood WD-K10TR portables become dirty with mud, they can be rinsed clean (within the limits of IP67-equivalent protection). Both the Kenwood WD-K10TR transceiver and Kenwood WD-K10PBS portable base unit meet or exceed US MIL-STD 810C through G in 11 categories.

Portable Base Station (Repeater) For Use Just About Anywhere


When a group is working outside, at a construction site or outdoor event for example, it is often not possible to install a fixed base station. There may WD-K1- portable base station even not be an AC power supply available. Ideal for such situations is the WD-K10PBS portable base, which can function as a transceiver as well. Using an optional cable, the WD-K10PBS can be connected to a compatible KENWOOD two-way radio, which will act as a bridge between two geographically separated intercom systems.

 Designed throughout for ease of use and convenience

  • Up to 64 transceivers can be used in Listening Mode
  • High-quality Audio Mode for greater clarity
  • Group LED displays the current communication group
  • Function button for instant selection of a frequently used function
  • Volume Attenuation to temporarily reduce volume when talking to a customer
  • Voice Announcement of current settings
  • Remaining battery capacity indicated by blinking LED and Voice Announcement
  • Key Lock to protect from accidental operation

WD-K10BS Fixed Base Station (Repeater) For Permanent Installation


The WD-K10BS base station is the core of this system – an ideal choice for initial adoption. Up to 10 transceivers can join in simultaneous two-way conversations.

Simple stand-alone system (base station + transceivers)

The WD-K10BS base station is the core of this system – an ideal choice for initial adoption. Up to 10 transceivers can join in simultaneous two-way conversations.

Coverage expansion possible (Base-link system)

You can daisy-chain up to 4 x WD-K10BS base stations to extend the communication area (Note: no more than to 10 transceivers can engage in a simultaneous two-way conversation).

Audio in/out terminals for use with broadcasting equipment and speakers

Two Audio Out terminals can be used to output an announcement from a transceiver via broadcasting equipment. Conversely, either of the two Audio In terminals can be used for effective broadcasting over the intercom system.

Dustproof & waterproof for outdoor use

Although normally used indoors, the WD-K10BS base station has sufficient dust- and drip-proof performance (IP54) to allow installation in sheltered outdoor areas such as roofed parking spaces.

Simple design for installation flexibility

The WD-K10BS can be installed virtually anywhere in a venue, including typical meeting areas, under the roof, or on a wall. The supplied mounting plate simplifies installation.

Notes: Testing transceivers for IP67 dust- and water-proofing is performed at the developmental stage with the earphones connected and terminal covers all closed tightly; however, dust- and water-proofing are not guaranteed under all operating situations during actual use. Protective materials deteriorate with age but dust- and water-proofing should be effective for a one-year period with normal usage (when terminal and battery covers are in contact). The body of the WD-K10TR/WD-K10PBS can be cleaned with ethanol; however, cleaning the radio should be conducted within the IP range.

  • The WD-K10TR or WD-K10PBS in transceiver mode can be used by registering it with a WD-K10PBS Portable Base or WD-K10BS Base Station. Actual registration of each transceiver is performed by an authorised dealer using dedicated software.
  • Up to 10 transceivers can be used simultaneously on a system.

Simple to Deploy

Deployment requires no up front training and can be setup in a matter of minutes.


Stand-alone Base Station Version

A stand-alone system simply combines a base station with several transceivers. You can choose between two types of base station – the WD-K10BS base station and the WD-K10PBS portable base. The former is suited for fixed installation indoors, while the latter operates on batteries and can be used where there is no external power supply available.

Portable Base Station Version

The WD-K10PBS portable base is recommended for its flexibility. It offers simultaneous 2-way communications for up to 10 transceivers. You can leave the mic switched on allowing you to join a conversation naturally at any time. With both stationary and portable base stations, users can be divided into groups, and both feature Listening mode.

Extended Coverage (Roaming)

Daisy chain up to 4 base stations. Transceivers automatically switch between base stations.
