Hytera PT580H UL913 - Intrinsically safe TETRA handheld radio

UL913-certified, intrinsically safe TETRA handheld radio for demanding and professional use.

    Product description

    The PT580H UL913 is a UL913-certified, intrinsically safe handheld radio for demanding and professional operation. Even in an environment of explosive gases and flammable materials, the PT580H UL913 always offers effective voice and data communication.

    The robust, ergonomic unit design and the high security standards provide you with secure TETRA communication in every environment.


    Compact design and easy to use

    The PT580H UL913 combines a compact housing with large buttons for exceptional ease of use. In addition, the handheld radio features a high-resolution, transflective 1.8" color display. This prevents operating errors, even when wearing gloves or in poor visibility.

    Long and safe operating time

    The battery of the PT580H UL913 has a particularly high capacity which enables it to provide a very long operating time. The design of the battery ensures additional security: A special locking mechanism prevents the insertion of batteries that are not designed for the device. This, in turn, prevents the use of batteries in the PT580H UL913 that are not intrinsically safe.

    Highest security through UL913

    The handheld radio offers outstanding TETRA features under harsh operating conditions and in environments of explosive gases and flammable materials. The PT580H UL913 is certified in accordance with the UL913 standard with "Class I II III Division 1 Group C-G -30°C - +50 °C T4". As a result, it ensures a reliable communication in environments that could contain explosive gases and flammable materials.

    Certified for operation in demanding environments

    Besides the UL913 standard, 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).
