Hytera PD605 - DMR handheld radio

Slim DMR handheld radio with metal frame housing.

    Product description

    The PD605 impresses with its lightweight design, range of functions and excellent value for money. With its compatible metal housing, outstanding voice quality and support of digital and analog radio, the PD605 is a breath of fresh air for your radio communication. 

    The PD605 handheld radio is designed in accordance with the DMR standard and therefore meets all the open standard's requirements.

    Improved utilization of the frequency spectrum

    Thanks to the TDMA process, the PD605 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.

    Expanded frequency range

    The frequency range in UHF stretches from 400 MHz to 527 MHz. 


    The PD605 possess both an analog mode and a digital mode and is compatible with analog radio systems; as a consequence it is very easy for you to change to the digital age. Along with conventional DMR (DMR Tier II, the PD605 also support DMR trunked radio. In addition, it can be used in Hytera XPT and simulcast systems.

    GPS support (optional)

    The variant with a GPS module supports applications such as Automated Vehicle Location (AVL) to optimize your workflow.

    Man-down function (optional)

    The optional Man Down alarm function automatically alerts other radio subscribers and/or the control room, if the operator falls over and stays down.

    Expansion interface

    The expansion interface gives users and application developers the option to expand the PD605 range of functions to include other useful features. 

    Intelligent antenna design

    The two knobs on the PD605 are separated by the antenna to prevent operating errors, even when wearing gloves or in poor light conditions.


    The PD605 meets all the requirements of the open DMR ETSI standard (ETSI-TS 102 361-1, -2, -3), the MIL810-C/D/E/F/G standard and degree of protection IP67 (waterproof up to one meter deep for at least 30 minutes of immersion). These handheld radios therefore offer outstanding features even under harsh operating conditions.

    Powerful battery

    Compared to the FDMA process in analog mode, with TDMA the battery service life can be improved by approximately 40% when using DMR.

    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.


    • Small, narrow, lightweight 119 x 54 x 27 mm, only 290 g.
    • Battery with long service life in digital mode, the PD605 operates for at least 16 hours with a 5-5-90 operating cycle.
    • Robust and compatible PD605 is compatible with MIL-STD-810 C / D / E / F / G standards. The degree of protection IP67 guarantees maximum resistance to environmental influences.
    • Safe communication provides encryption according to DMRA in digital mode and scrambler function in analog mode.
    • DMR Data Service The data protocol used is fully compliant with the DMR standard.
    • One Touch Call / Text Supports one touch-functions, including preprogrammed text messages, voice calls and supplementary functions.
    • Expanded signaling Supports various expanded analog signal modes, including HDC1200, 2-tone and 5-tone for improved integration into existing analog radio fleets.
    • Dual Modus (Analog & Digital) Dual modes (analog & digital) ensure the radio operates smoothly when migrating from analog to digital.
