The Hytera PD705 radios are ideal for use in the construction industry, these are built to military standard (MIL-STD-810F) so are durable and able to withstand anything thrown its way. Being IP67 resistant this means that the radio is waterproof, allowing it to continue working should it be used when raining or if it were to be dropped into a body of water up to 1 meter deep. The Ingress protection rating also means that the device is dustproof, therefore working in an environment such as a building site is no issue for the PD705 range.
Both devices have a 48-channel capacity, meaning that there are enough channels to cope with anything from a small business right up to a large-scale operation. Available for both UHF and VHF frequencies, these devices can be programmed to suit the needs of the user, whether you need to enable your radios to work in an outdoor working environment or within a factory or leisure facility. Another option which the user gets is whether they would like their device to be analogue or digital. Pre-programmable text messages back to the base station are an option, whilst a channel announcement is also a feature on both devices due to the radio not having a display.
The PD705LT is just as robust as the standard version but has had unnecessary features removed. Both devices have the lone worker features as standard, but should you be looking for the option to have Man Down then this comes as an additional extra with the PD705. When purchasing the PD705 from the Radiotronics website, there is the option to add both GPS (device tracking) and Man Down to the device(s) that you are purchasing. Man down is a feature which detects whether a radio has been laid on its side for a certain period of time, a warning is then sent from the device and if not responded to then an alert will be sent from the radio to the control centre, an important feature should you be in a dangerous working environment. A priority transmission can be sent to all devices within the fleet, should an important message need to be sent to all teams or a safety warning of sorts, these transmissions will interrupt any other calls which are taking place at the time
