Why Icom Land Mobile Products...
Land Mobile products provide two-way radio communications for a wide variety of markets including but not limited to: public safety, transportation, education and manufacturing. Icom's line of small handheld radios, vehicle-mounted mobile radios, and base station and repeater equipment is full-featured, narrowband-compliant, and built military tough.
Have You Narrowbanded Yet?
January 1, 2013 is here and the FCC narrowbanding mandate is now in effect. Avoid FCC admonishment, monetary fines and possible loss of license. Narrowband your system with Icom's P25 and IDAS 6.25 kHz solutions.
ICOM's IDAS™ digital radio solution
IDAS™ is Icom's digital land mobile radio system using the NXDN™ common air interface. IDAS offers a complete system of handheld radios, mobile radios, repeaters, network interface/trunking controller, remote communicator and various accessories. IDAS is a complete digital solution that system owners and managers can grow into as their own time and budgets allow.
IDAS has useful calling features including selective calling, status message, radio, stun/kill/revive and GPS position reporting, etc. The IDAS system is ideal for business and industry users who are thinking to migrate to a digital system and hence to future mandated narrow channel spacing.
IDAS conventional IP network
An IDAS conventional IP network can extend your communication coverage. It lets you connect dispersed sites and allows you to communicate like a single site. With an IDAS conventional IP network system, it is possible to have radio communications all the way from the basement to the top floor, all in stable digital audio. Already deployed LAN cables can be used in an in-building solution.
IDAS Multi-Site Trunking
IDAS MultiTrunk extends Icom's single site trunking system to multiple sites. Although IDAS MultiTrunk builds on the technology of IDAS Multi-site Conventional, it is a huge leap in capabiltiy. With IDAS MultiTrunk the advantages of trunking are enabled across many sites separated by great distances for operations that are large and geographically dispersed.
- Scalable from 1 channel to 30 channels per site, up to 16 sites
- Effective operations with all channels used to transmit voice or data payload, priority monitoring for emergency interrupt, and polite roaming while conversations are occurring
- All the features of a digital radio, like text, GPS and group/individual calls available in multi-site trunking
Digital/analog mixed mode operation
The IDAS radio can receive both analog mode and digital mode signals on a single channel. You can partially introduce the IDAS radios, while using the existing analog radios in a system. The IDAS system allows you to scale migration to narrow band digital at your own pace and need, while running your existing analog system. It is a cost efficient way to obtain the next generation two-way radio technology and protect your current system investment.
Digital radio features:
Secure communication: When secure communication is required, the IDAS system provides a digital voice scrambler using a 15-bit key (about 32,000 keys) for encryption as standard. This is added security to the digital modulation/demodulation.
Selective call, group call and talk group ID: The IDAS system allows you to call individual or group users. IDAS radios automatically send their own ID number when the PTT button is held down. IDAS radios memorize up to 500 of both individual/group ID is displayed on the LCD while receiving a message allowing you to identify who is calling.
Talk back function and call mode selection: When the talk back function is enabled, the IDAS radio automatically selects the received talkgroup or individual ID to reply to the received call, while the talk back timer remains. After the talk back timer is exceeded, the IDAS radios will set to an initial call mode depending on programming which is either talkgroup or individual call or retain the previous user call mode selection.
Digital voice scrambler: When secure communication is required, the IDAS system provides a digital voice scrambler using a 15-bit key (about 32,000 codes) as standard. This is added security to the digital modulation/demodulation.
Emergency call function: When the emergency button is pushed, the emergency signal will be automatically sent to the dispatcher or another radio. Other emergency features are a man down feature and a lone worker function, available for automated emergency calls (in digital and analog modes). A remote radio monitor function allows the dispatcher to turn on the PTT button from a remote location and transmit anything the microphone hears for a preprogrammed time period.
Status message: You can set up to 100 conditions such as "on duty," "at lunch" or "in route" and send your status to another unit or the dispatch. Also, you can request another unit to send their status and receive it.
GPS position reporting: When used with the GPS speaker microphone, HM-170GP, for the handheld radio or an external GPS receiver for the mobile radio, the IDAS radio can send the current position information to another unit or the dispatch. Simultaneous status message and GPS data can also be sent. When connected to a PC installed with a mapping software application, the dispatcher will know the real-time activity of the fleet members.
Radio stun, kill and revive: The radio kill functions disable a lost or stolen radio over the air, eliminating security threats from undesired listeners. When the radio receives the stun command, all functions will be locked out until the revive command is received or the user password is entered. The IDAS radio can also send radio stun, kill and revive commands.
Ran (Radio Access Number) for digital code squelch: The RAN code is the digital equivalent of CTCSS for accessing an IDAS repeater or digital code squelch function.
Short data message capability: Short data messages of up to 12 characters may be sent and received between IDAS radios or from the remote communicator.
Radio check function: allows you to verify if another radio is within the communication range
Call log: displays the received call history
Call alert function: notifies receiving party that a call is coming with a beep sound and blinking icon
