Hytera PT580H - TETRA radio

The PT580H offers extensive functions and an ergonomic design that makes your communication a real experience.

    Product description

    Full of functionality and packed inside an ergonomic design. Boasting an IP67 degree of protection, a high-resolution color display, an output rating of up to 3 W, clear digital voice quality, a man-down function and GPS localization, the PT580H handheld radio offers you unbeatable TETRA communication in every situation.


    Compact design and easy to use

    The PT580H combines a compact housing with large buttons for exceptional ease of use. Adding to the PT580H handheld radio package is a high-resolution, transflective 1.8" color display, which is extremely easy to read even in bright sunlight.

    Patented antenna

    The integrated radio and GPS antenna provides high comfort and even better features. Both operating buttons of PT580H are separated from each other via the antenna so that operating errors are virtually excluded even with gloves or under poor light conditions.

    Dustproof and waterproof

    The device complies with all the requirements of IP67 degree of protection, withstanding submersion in 1 meter of water for a duration of up to 30 minutes. The device meets the requirements of the MIL?-?STD?-810 C?/?D?/?E?/?F?/?G? standard and has passed the HALT? tests (Highly Accelerated Life Test). Thus, excellent features are offered even under harsh operating conditions.

    Versatile services

    Apart from voice and data communication, additional functions can be added: GPS, encryption, voice recording etc. Moreover, the handheld radio includes a connection for expansions and accessories.

    Immediate and direct communication

    PT580H provides rapid access to the TETRA radio network and to its services. It was developed according to the regulations of the ETSI TETRA standard and is therefore compatible with infrastructures and terminals from various manufacturers.
