kenwood NX-5200 / NX-5300

NEXEDGE leaps further ahead of the competition with NX-5000 Series portable and mobile radios, ready to serve in all public safety, public sector and commercial roles with flawless performance and advanced feature sets. Thanks to multi-digital operation, NEXEDGE offers a flexible communications system that is ideal for a wide range of industries and fields – ranging from utilities and traffic agencies to schools, taxi services and security companies. What’s more, top-of-the-line features such as the transflective display for easy viewing in sunshine, GPS capability and Bluetooth connectivity all contribute to enhanced efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

The NX-5000 Series offers unsurpassed interoperability as it supports 2 digital CAIs – NXDN and P25 (Phase 1 & 2), plus FM analogue in a single radio. Best of all, a desired CAI can be selected at will, giving you the freedom to migrate at your own pace – whether you are intent on going fully digital, undecided about which digital system to pick, or just wanting to maintain both digital and analogue for a while.

An NX-5000 Series radio automatically identifies a call signal – whether it’s NXDN, P25, or FM analogue – and transmits in the same mode received. Setting your radio to Mixed Mode allows the radio to wait for a call in both digital and analogue modes in a digital/analogue environment. Moreover, the new Geographical Zone function allows these radios to operate in any mode – conventional or trunked in NXDN, P25, and FM – in the same zone.

The 65,536-colour TFT display allows the user to check at a glance on operating status, shown in multi-line text to convey more information. The portables feature a 1.74-inch (240 × 180 pixel) LCD that can be viewed clearly in direct sunlight or in the dark, even while wearing polarised sunglasses. What’s more, the optional remote control panel (KCH-20R) features a 2.75-inch (240 × 400 pixel) TFT display with Auto LCD Brightness mode to adjust display intensity for round-the-clock operation. Further enhancing operating ease is the 4-way Directional-pad (D-pad) and 2-position lever switch, which offer intuitive control and can be operated with gloves on.

Benefitting from decades of KENWOOD experience and expertise, the NX-5000 Series offers superb audio quality even in very noisy environments. In addition to sophisticated sound analysis and optimisation technologies, these radios feature Active Noise Cancelling based on leading-edge digital technology. Clear communications are assured.

During the development stage, NX-5000 Series radios go through a number of stringent tests to make sure they can withstand harsh usage. In addition to MIL-STD-810 C/D/E/F/G environmental standards, NX-5000 portable radios comply with IP67/68 immersion standards, offering max. 2 hour protection at a depth of 1 meter*. The rugged mobile radios comply with IP54/55** dust/water ingress protection standards.

*Applies for IP68 **IP54: RF Deck of the mobile radio; IP55: Remote Control Head for the mobile radio

The Intelligent Battery System helps to extend battery lifetime and ensure that the batteries are optimally maintained so as to be ready for mission-critical operations. The system comprises the optional high-capacity Li-ion and Ni-MH Batteries (KNB-L1/L2/L3/N4), Intelligent Charger (KSC-Y32), and Battery Reader software (KAS-12). Up to 60 Intelligent Chargers can be chain-connected to a PC installed with the KAS-12 Battery Reader software, which can display and manage information: battery type, model name, voltage, temperature, discharge cycle, expected life, and remaining capacity.

Hands-free operation is vital for many NX-5000 users. The radios’ built-in Bluetooth module is compatible with Headset and Serial Port Profiles (ver. 3.0) and keeps your hands open for other important tasks you are into.

Featuring an integrated GPS module and antenna, NX-5000 portable radios can transmit positional data, enabling effective management when used with tracking applications like KAS-10 software. Mobile models can support GPS with the optional KRA-40G GPS Active Antenna.

Secure communications are an essential requirement, especially for public safety applications. NX-5000 radios are equipped with 56-bit key Data Encryption Standard (DES) Encryption. For even higher protection there is the optional KWD-AE31 Secure Cryptographic Module, which supports the 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) Encryption.
