Kenwood Mobile and Portable Radios and Enhanced Firmware


SUWANEE, GA—Kenwood announces an expansion of the NX-5000 series with VHF mobile and portable radios—the NX-5200K2/K3 and NX-5700K—and new firmware that allows for NXDN site roaming and single remote head configurations for mobile units. The multiprotocol NX-5000 Series allows users to operate in P25 Phase I/II, NEXEDGE® digital, and analog modes. The NX-5000 Series of portable and mobile two-way radios are designed to facilitate a planned migration to digital for agencies and businesses operating with a mix of analog and digital radios. The NX-5000 Series has been widely adopted by public safety and mission critical users, including utilities, for its durability and all NX-5000 radios feature built-in GPS capability facilitated by a large, color display for at-a-glance operational status checks. Built-in DSP is designed for high noise environments. An orange emergency button on the mobile and portable units adds additional safety protection in hazardous conditions. The NX-5000 Series is equipped with 56-bit DES encryption as a standard feature, with optional 256-bit AES encryption.

The NX-Series portables have a built-in Bluetooth® module making hands-free operation easy, and meet MIL-STD 810 C/D/E/F/G and IP68 water immersion standards. A microSD/microSDHC memory card slot increases voice and data memory capacity. The mobiles adhere to MIL-STD 810 C/D/E/F/G, the RF deck meets IP54 and the remote head meets the IP55 blowing rain standard. The mobile has a DB-25 accessory connector and features 4W speaker audio.
