Hytera Introduces a New DMR Line That Should Make Motorola Very Nervous
These new DMR radios use an open source TDMA standard format that make them compatible with many features used with Motorola’s MotoTRBO Digital Two Way Radio Systems, this makes the Hytera radios compatible to be used with existing Motorola users.
Digital is the future of 2 way communication and, for a long time, Motorola seem to have the market cornered. Their XPR Mototurbo line was the only digital radio worth the money…and it was a lot of money. Even the lower end of the line was over $500.00 per radio. Hytera’s DMR line are compatible with Mototurbos, and, after bench testing many of their models, are actually putting out more consistent power. They are also smaller, easier to use and program and incredibly durable.
They have produced radios for, just about, every situation. They have lighter, powerful models perfect for a sporting or entertainment event staff, and ones that are durable enough for construction, refineries and manufacturing. They also have a line comparable to the Project 25 models so popular with the Federal and State governments.
If you’re a music or theater touring company or are involved in any kind of production the smaller models, such as the PD502 and PD562 will work perfectly as a replacement for the expensive and fragile “Clear-Com” systems that are very costly and prone to breaking.
The MD782 digital mobile radio features a TFT high-definition color LCD, large keypad and six programmable keys. In addition to conventional
communication, the MD782 offers additional functions such as message, GPS, data transmission and connection alert.
The RD982 digital repeater can operate either in analog or digital modes and support 100% duty cycle at 50 W. The heat sink and cooler fan design offers stable operation at high power. The RD982 can be mounted or placed on a desktop.
These Hytera products are the only, currently offered, product line compatible with Motorola’s MotoTRBO Digital Two Way Radio Systems. From what we can see, they are also a better value with better, overall, specs. This new DMR equipment will offer a value added cost effective option to the alternative DMR TDMA Standard.
