PD792EX World’s First IIC Atex/Intrinsically Safe Digital Portable Radio

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.

Hytera understand what the challenges are for professionals working

in hazardous environments and are dedicated to the designing and delivering of innovative intrinsically safe communications solutions. For this purpose, we launched PD792EX, a portable DMR radio that complies with the world’s strictest safety standards.

Detail Description

  • ATEX / IECEx / FM / CSA / CQST IIC Certificated
  • Designed for Hazardous Working Environments

Hytera PD792Ex, fully compliant to DMR open standard of ETSI, comes to be the world’s First IIC Atex Digital Portable Radio. FM-2010 standard of North America, IEC, and ATEX standards compliance, plastic-encapsulated technology, error-prevention design, and IP67 protection ensure intrinsically safe and reliable communication in hazardous scenes with explosive gas and combustible dusts.

  • Ergonomic Design
    PD792Ex adopts a 1.8-inch high resolution color transflective LCD display, allowing crystal-clear visibility even under outdoor strong light.
    Big keypad ensures precise and convenient operation even with gloves on.
  • Durability
    Strictly compliant with FM -2010 standard of North America, IEC & ATEX standards, PD795 Ex passes one-month series tests in simulated harsh environments. MIL-STD-810C/D/E/F compliance and & IP67 protection ensure outstanding and reliable performance in demanding environments.
  • Error-prevention Design
    Automatic alarm will be triggered when batteries or accessories of lower security level are applied, thus avoiding accidents of this kind.
  • Plastic-encapsulated technology
    The plastic-encapsulated technology is applied to the radio unit and battery, isolating their internal circuits from dangerous gas and dusts outside. This technology is applied in PD792EX at the high cost of lower production efficiency due to the challenging demands in design and manufacturing, which is always worthwhile worthy as Hytera sees it.
  • IP67 Protection
    One-meter submersion up to 30 minutes
  • Anti-static shell
    The rugged and durable shell dissipate static electricity, thus preventing sparks.
  • High-strength LCD protective len
    The high-strength LCD protective len minimizes scratch and withstands the impact of 1KG hammer.
  • Innovative battery latch
    The patented battery latch design keeps the battery in place when the radio falls from a height.
  • Non-slip design
    The non-slip design delivers strong grab-hold, also comfortable operation.

Key Features

  • GPS
    The built-in GPS module supports GPS data transmission.
  • Dual-mode (Analog & Digital)
    PD792Ex operates in either analog or digital mode, It is compatible with the current analog system, ensuring a smooth analog-to-digital migration.
  • Versatile Voice Calls
    The DMR intelligent signaling supports various voice calls, including Private Call, Group Call and All Call.
  • Vibration
    This feature is helpful in alerting you to reception of any voice call or message under noisy conditions
  • IP Service
    PD792Ex allows multiple IP functions when connected with a PC via IP address.
  • Various Analog Signaling
    PD792EX supports various analog signaling (HDC1200, DTMF, 2-Tone, and 5-Tone), providing more expansion capabilities
  • Multilingual interface
    The radio supports up to 10 languages, including English, Simplified Chinese, German*, Spanish*, French*, Italian*, Polish*, Russian* and Turkish*, allowing you to select as per your needs.

Product Features

  • Environmentally Safe and High Reliability
    The PD792 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.
  • Enhanced Safety
    The PD792 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 Li-Ion Battery
    The PD792EX has an 1800mAh high-capacity Li-Ion battery capable of up to 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
    Benefitted from the advantages of DMR digital technology, PD792 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 PD792 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.

Technical Highlights

  • Improved PCB Circuit Layout & EMC Shielding
    To achieve such a high safety standard, Hytera PD792 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 seperated 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 PD792 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.
  • IP67 Protection
    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.
  • Patented 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.
