Two-way radios have been a productivity tool for many professionals. For those who work in environments with explosive gas and combustible dusts using standard radios could be unsafe.We understand what the challenges are for professionals working in hazardous environments. Dedicated to the designing and delivering of innovative intrinsically safe communications solutions, We launched PD792i Ex, a portable DMR radio that complies with the world’s strictest safety standards.
Environmentally Safe and High Reliability
The PD792i Ex is designed upon the strict requirements of European ATEX and North American FM standards. With certifications for ATEX, IECEX, the latest FM and CSA specifications, the radio works safely in most hazardous environments, even with the presence of hydrogen and dust particles. The overall design complies with the latest American Military Standard-MIL-STD-810G, which means it can bear the harshest environments like High/Low Temperature, High Humidity, Vibration, and Shock.
The PD792i Ex provides a dedicated emergency button. In case of any accident, a press on the button will trigger an alarm and initiate a pre-programmed voice call. Built-in Man-down, GPS and Lone Worker functions are also available with the digital portable.
High-capacity and Safe Lithium-Ion Battery
The PD792i Ex has a high-capacity Li-Ion battery of 1800mAh with long shelf life of 17 hours under 5-5-90 duty cycle. The battery charging and discharging circuits are stringently designed to prevent overcharging or discharging causing high heat, which leads to unstable battery environments. In addition the battery cells are also encapsulated to redistribute single point heat buildup and also prevent air discharge.
High Audio Quality and Assured Communication Based on DMR Technology
Benefited from the advantages of DMR digital technology, PD792i Ex provides higher audio quality and stable communication performance with 40% less battery consumption than analog radios. It provides better communication quality and enhanced privacy, and moreover reduces overall equipment costs.
Easy to Use
The PD792i Ex is very easy to use. It has a tough and highly readable LCD screen and an intuitive user interface. The large PPT button and channel knobs are useful for users wearing gloves. The ergonomic design and channel annunciation enhance the user experience.
The built-in GPS module in the PD792i Ex supports GIS applications.
Improved PCB Circuit Layout & EMC Shielding
To achieve such a high safety standard, Hytera PD792i Ex adopts optimized distributed line design on PCB, minimizing the odds of circuit fault. All the key components on the PCB are covered with shield, and the space between lines, between components, between component and shield are properly separated which translates to better EMC performance and less internal interference.
Innovative Silicone Encapsulating
Silicone encapsulant technology prevents the internal circuits from interface with air and liquid which effectively stops the intrusion of liquid, dust and harmful gas. The silicone encapsulating process is delicate and complicated. As a result, every single PD792i Ex radio spends eight hours in the manufacture line.
Innovative Electrostatic Free Design
Hytera applies patent on electrostatic free design and dual-material molding technology in this intrinsically safe portable. The static dispersive material (blue) minimizes static accumulation on the surface, thus reducing the probability of static discharge on the radio. Meanwhile the robust material (black) maximizes the ruggedness of the enclosure.
The Ingress Protection reaches IP67 (6: Totally protected against dust; 7: Protected against the effects of immersion up to 1m for 30 minutes). It’s the highest IP level for land-based wireless radio application.
Patent Battery Latch
To disengage the battery from Hytera digital portables, the lock and bolt of the latch need to be moved along two different axes. Such a patented design ensures no disengagement of the battery pack from the main radio in case of dropping that might cause spark.
