IDAS system features Image

Digital/analog mixed mode

Digital/analog mixed mode operation
Image Zoom

The digital/analog mixed mode function* allows you to receive both analog mode and NXDN™ conventional mode signals on a single channel, and automatically selects the received mode to reply to a received call. It’s a smart way to grow into digital radio – at your own pace, as your budget and comfort level allow.

*
Not available for the IC-F3230D, F3210D and F5220D series transceivers.


Individual/group call

The IDAS™ radio allows you to call individual or group users. The radio automatically sends its own ID number when the PTT button is held down. The alias name or individual/group ID is displayed on the LCD* while receiving a message allowing the radio user to identify who is calling.

*
Not available for the IC-F3210D, F3201DEX and F3101D series (No-LCD) transceivers.


Emergency call functions

When the emergency button is pushed, an emergency signal will be automatically sent to the dispatcher or another radio(s). Other emergency features are a man down feature*and a lone worker function, available for automated emergency calls (in digital and analog modes). A remote radio monitor function allows the dispatcher to turn on the PTT button from a remote location and transmit anything the microphone hears for a preprogrammed time period.

*
Available for the IC-F3360D, F3261D and F3161D series. Optional UT-124R required for the IC-F3161D series transceivers. Man down function may be built-in, depending on the version of the IC-F3261D series transceivers.


Status message and short data message

Up to 100*1 status conditions can be set and sent with voice call. Also, the status polling call requests the intended radio to send its status. When a status polling call is received, the IDAS™ radio automatically transmits its current status. A short data message of up to 100 characters can be sent and received.*2

*1
When used with the IC-F3360D and F5360D series, up to 207 status conditions are available.
*2
Not available for the IC-F3210D, F3201DEX and F3101D series (No-LCD) transceivers.

Position data transmission capability

When a GPS receiver* is used, the IDAS™ radio can automatically transmit accurate position data at programmed intervals. The position data can be transmitted with a voice call, GPS request status, status call, SDM, call alert, or emergency calls, depending on the programming. The position data may be used with vehicle management applications.

*
GPS receiver is built-in for the IC-F3360D and some versions of IC-F3261D series transceivers.
Optional GPS microphone is required for the IC-F3161D, F3210D and F3101D series. An external GPS antenna is required for IC-F5360D series. GPS receiver is required for the IC-F5061D, F5220D or F5121D series mobile transceivers. When used with the IC-F3360D and F5360D series, the GPS position data cannot be sent with Short data message or Call alert calls.


Radio Kill, Stun and Revive

The radio Kill function disables a lost or stolen radio over the air, eliminating security threats from undesired listeners. When the radio stun command is received, all functions will be temporary locked out until a revive command is received or the user password is entered.


Digital voice scrambler

When secure communication is required, the IDAS™ system provides a digital voice scrambler using a 15-bit key (about 32,000 codes) as standard. This is added security to the digital modulation / demodulation.


Other features

  • A radio check function allows you to verify if another radio is within communication range*1
  • The Call log displays the received call history*1*2
  • The Call alert function notifies the receiving party that a call is coming with a beep sound and a blinking icon*1
  • A RAN (Radio Access Number) code for digital code squelch
  • Block decode enables the radio to monitor talkgroups that the radio doesn't belong to*1
  • Late entry: IDAS™ radios can decode the received ID and join the conversation, even when turned ON during a call
*1
When used with the IC-F3360D and F5360D series, Radio check, Call log and Block decode functions are not available. The Paging call function is similar to the Call alert function with blinking LED indication.
*2
Not available for the IC-F3210D, F3201DEX and F3101D series (No-LCD) transceivers.
