Now with the new generation of IDAS, Icom takes you to a new level of “smart”. Not only is the look and total design of the new IDAS series completely new, a plethora of functions and attention to hardware details only Icom can provide, bring you a solution that will not only make you look smart, but work smart too.
The synergy in refinements and enhancements in design, usability and features with the electrical and industrial hardware improvements further the total reliability of the new IDAS series. This reliability ranges from the “zero adjustment”, non-tolerance production quality of every radio made, to a new, stress free user experience that masks the real complexity behind this multi-protocol platform. Icom’s product quality is legendary. Look smart and work smart with the new IDAS series, because using is believing.
|LICENSE KEY UPGRADE
The new IDAS radios can add new functions and protocols with license key options. The radios can be upgraded and customized to meet your specific needs.
|ANC (Active Noise Canceling)
The ANC assists in providing clear comment. Some specified noise sources (such as sirens or boiler noise) can be canceled.
|SMAL, SLIM AND SMART
The compact body is made possible from new engineering techniques including the use of a custom SoC (System-on-a-Chip) and flat sheet keypad. The slim dimensions are also supplemented with reduced power consumption, allowing for a thinner battery pack.
|OTAP and OAA
For efficiency in radio programming, the OTAP (Over-the-Air-Programming) function allows remote change of programming data (for example adding a new repeater) over the radio channel. The OAA (Over-the-Air-Alias) function sends user name over the radio channel and eliminates needs to program the alias table. Successfully manage your fleet with ease.
The built-in Bluetooth module provides remote operation and hands-free communication paired with a third-party Bluetooth headset*. When connected with Bluetooth telemetric devices or PC terminals, data or files can be wirelessly transferred.
* Available functions depend on paired Bluetooth devices.
|Digital Voice Recording
The new IDAS radios can record incoming and outgoing communications, and replay recorded communications. When a 32 GB microSD* card is used, a Max. 500 hours recording is possible. The recorded audio is saved in “wav” format and allows replay on the radio or a PC.
* MicroSD card is required separately.
|Motion/Stationary Detection Sensors.
For emergency situations, the new IDAS radios have an emergency button and five emergency-related functions: man down, motion detection, stationary detection, lone worker and power OFF emergency functions. The motion/stationary sensor sensitivity level is programmable in 10 levels for each function.
* Man down, motion detection and stationary detection for handheld radios only.
|Transparent Data/Text Message
The new IDAS radios can be used as a transparent data modem which transmits various data at 9600 bps over the radio channel using 12.5 kHz channel spacing. Text messages can send up to 100 characters text data message and scrolls the received message on the display.
The position data can be sent with voice call or status call and can be used with an AVL (Automatic Vehicle Location) system. The GPS log functions logs user position data at regular intervals and can be saved to a microSD card. The new IDAS radios can show direction and distance to another radio or specified point, and notifies you with a beep sound if the target is in the specified range.
* For mobile radios, an optional GPS antenna, UX-241, is required separately.
The Audio equalizer allows you to tailor the audio tone to suit speech characteristics and the language in use. Five types of tone controls – flat, high boost, middle boost, low boost and low cut – are available. The audio auto gain control function controls the speech audio to a constant, regardless of the input magnitudes of the voice or distance of the microphone from the mouth.
|DES/AES Encryption with OTAR
For digital communication security, the new IDAS radios provide basic 4-key DES encryption as standard. When used with the optional UT-134 encryption unit, 256-bit AES encryption and the OTAR (Over-the-Air Rekeying) function are available. The OTAR function allows updating of encryption keys over the radio channel.
The new IDAS radios can notify channel number, zone and channel type with voice announcement. This function is convenient for making radio adjustments without having to look at the radio.
|USB Port for PC Connection
The new IDAS radios can be connected to a PC through a USB port for programming radios and accessing the installed microSD card in mass storage mode.
When a call from a specific user is received, the new IDAS handheld radios vibrate powerfully enough to be felt through heavy clothing. Vibration patterns are programmable.
|AQUAQUAKE™ DRAINING FUNCTION
By emitting a vibrating buzz sound, the AquaQuake draining function clears water from the speaker grill and maintains clear audio. (Handheld radios).
