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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
