    Improved utilization of the frequency spectrum

    Thanks to the TDMA process, the PD505 enables you to assign the available bandwidth with double the number of channels. This has a clear mitigating effect on the increasing spectrum scarcity encountered when using DMR radio systems.

    Ergonomic design

    The PD505 handheld radio is easy to operate and highly reliable, which is indispensable in critical situations.

    Individual button design

    The two rotary buttons of the radio transceiver are separated by the antenna. This design prevents operating errors.

    Compact, lightweight and easy to operate

    The radios of the PD5 series are particularly ergonomic and easy to operate. With a weight of only 260 g (PD505) or 280 g (PD565), the PD5 series offers a high level of mobility comfort.

    Long battery service life

    The lithium-ion battery (1500 mAh) in digital mode reaches an operating period of at least 16 hours (duty cycle 5-5-90). With the optionally available 2000-mAh battery, it will even be 20 hours.

    Support of analog and digital mobile radio

    The PD5 series was developed in compliance with the ETSI mobile radio standard Digital Mobile Radio (DMR). The handheld radios support the conventional DMR mode and can also be operated in manual mode. Moreover, the radios support Hytera XPT radio systems. That makes the terminals of the PD5 series the ideal companion for the move to digital mobile radio.

    Pseudo trunked radio

    With the patented pseudo trunked radio, the terminals dynamically utilize the timeslots of a frequency. As a result, the radios can utilize both timeslots in DMO and RMO mode in the conventional DMR operation. This guarantees an efficient frequency utilization.

    Upgradeable software

    The upgradeable software makes the use of new features possible. By altering the firmware-software, other digital and analog operating modes can be enabled, without the need for purchasing a new radio device.
