Introducing the new TK-D840 mobile, launched together with the new TK-D340 portable and completing Kenwood's impressive DMR system line-up. Thanks to compliance with MIL-STD and IP54 environmental standards, they can be relied on through thick and thin. As well as handling both analogue and digital communications, this user-friendly DMR radio can even operate in direct mode, without a repeater. They also offer Kenwood Call Interrupt and also benefit in having Kenwood enhanced audio quality. These truly resourceful team members will enable you to make the most of your legacy analogue equipment while also benefitting from digital communications.
Belonging to the DMR Tier II category, which covers licensed conventional systems, this radio is specified for 2-slot Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) operation in 12.5 kHz channels. This means they can offer greater spectrum efficiency.
This DMR radio can operate in both digital and FM analogue modes, switching automatically as needed. Interoperability with legacy analogue radios allows organizations to migrate to full digital at their own pace.
Up to two simultaneous direct-mode subscriber calls can be supported in a 12.5 kHz channel, without requiring a repeater, thus doubling channel capacity.
In an emergency or whenever a user needs to interrupt a call, Call Interrupt is available in both direct and repeater modes, while encoding or decoding. Also featured are emergency functions to help protect staff in remote areas, etc.
This TK-D840 mobile radio conform to MIL-STD C/D/E/F/G standards for ruggedness, and is IP54 rated for water & dust intrusion, making it more than capable of withstanding harsh operating conditions.*
*Applies only when using a microphone KMC-35 or KMC-36.
The large 2-digit LED display provides a clear indication of which channel is being used, and the brightness level can be adjusted (high/low) to suit the time of day and ambient light conditions. The front panel also features 9 programmable function keys for enhanced operating ease.
The blue LED indicator can be customised to provide useful status information. For example, it can be used in combination with the orange LED for Selective Call differentiation.
A radio’s most important quality is clarity – being able to hear, loud and clear, what the other party is saying, and these mobile delivers just that. For instance, the AMBE+2™VOCODER technology accurately replicates natural human speech nuances for superior voice quality, even with high levels of ambient noise. Additionally, Voice Announcement can confirm the channel number, so there is no need to look at the display. English is the default language, but Spanish, French, German, Italian, Dutch and Russian are also available.
A series of programmed audio tones is used to specify one or more radios and initiate a conversation; all other radios will remain muted. Several signalling formats are available.
