Lightweight & easy to operate


Compact, lightweight and easy to operate

The PD505 radio is particularly ergonomic and easy to operate. With a weight of only 260g, the PD505 offers a high level of mobility and is ideal for use on long shifts.

Cost efficient with superlative voice quality

With the combined application of the narrow-band codec and digital technologies for error correction, the PD505 ensures a superlative voice quality, even in loud environments or in peripheral areas of radio coverage.

Long battery life

The lithium-ion battery (1500 mAh) include as standard achieves an operating time of at least 16 hours (duty cycle 5-5-90). With the optionally available 1000-mAh battery, this could be increased to up to 20 hours.

Supports analogue and digital technology

The PD5 series was developed in compliance with the ETSI mobile radio standard Digital Mobile Radio (DMR). The handheld radios support the conventional DMR mode and can also be operated in manual mode. On top of this, the radios support

Hytera XPT radio systems ( via chargeable license). That makes the PD5 series terminals the ideal companion for the move to digital mobile radio.

Pseudo trunked radio

With patented Hytera pseudo trunking, the terminals dynamically utilise the timeslots of a frequency. As a result, the radios can utilise both timeslots in DMO and RMO mode in the conventional DMR operation. This guarantees efficient

frequency utilization.

Additional Functions
