Fundamental Radio Features
Small, 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.
IP68 Waterproof and Dust-tight
The IDAS handheld radio is built durable to endure 1 m depth water for 1 hour and dust-tight protection. The radio also passes MIL-STD-810 specifications.
Color LCD and improved User Interface
A high-resolution color LCD and new user interface is adopted. The color LCD enhances the visibility both in natural and indoor lighting, with the night mode LCD setting as an alternative for use in night time or low lighting conditions. Functions can be easily set by following easy to understand icons and menu items.
* For IC-F3400DT/F3400DS/F3400DPT/F3400DPS/F4400DT/F4400DS/F4400DPT/F4400DPS (Display type)
The OAA function sends own alias name with a call to receivers and automatically shows the callers name on the receivers display. It eliminates the need to program the call list to each radio, when a new radio is entered or existing radio is passed to another person.
Hands-Free Operation with Bluetooth® Headset
The built-in Bluetooth® module provides remote operation and hands-free communication paired with a third-party headset (for example, 3M™ Peltor™ WS™ 5 series)*.
Available functions depend on paired Bluetooth® devices. Icom does not guarantee all functions and performance of the Bluetooth® headset.
Digital Voice Recording
The IDAS radio can record incoming and outgoing calls, and the user can check recorded communications just in case. When a 32 GB microSD* card is used, a Max. 500 hours of recording is possible. The following information can be embedded in the WAV file; user IDs, GPS position, frequency, AF volume, RSSI, etc.
(Depending on setting).
* A microSD card is required separately.
When a call is received, the IDAS radio vibrates powerfully enough for the incoming call to be felt through heavy clothing.
Functions and menu items can be programmed in a language other than English. Cyrillic and Simplified Chinese fonts are supported.
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. Voice announcements can be replaced with customized messages.
- Messages of up to 100 characters
- Status message
- Low battery beep
- Normal, priority and voting scan
- Internal clock
Safety and Security
AES/DES Encryption with Over-the-Air-Rekeying (OTAR)
For digital communication security, the IDAS radio provides basic 4-key DES encryption as standard and upgraded to 64-key DES with the optional UT-134. When used with the optional UT-134 and license key (ISL-AKAES), the AES encryption with the OTAR function are available. The OTAR function allows updating of encryption keys over the radio channel.
* The OTAR manager software (CS-OTAR1) is required.
Emergency Call by Man Down and Motion/Stationary Detection
To remotely monitor worker safety, the IDAS handheld radio has four emergency related functions: motion detection, stationary detection, man down and lone worker functions. If one of these functions are activated, the radio automatically sends an emergency signal.
Radio Kill, Stun and Revive
If a radio is lost or stolen, the radio kill function disables the radio over the air to reduce a security threat. When the radio Stun command is received, all functions will be temporarily locked out until a Revive command is received or the user password is entered.
- Remote monitor (NXDN)/ Ambience listening (dPMR) functions
- Power ON Password
- Surveilance function
- Tactical group function for temporarily regroup of user groups
Active Noise Canceller
The active noise canceller assists in providing clear audio, while suppressing background noise. The function improves both your transmitted voice and incoming call. The radio user does not need to shout into the microphone even under extremely noisy environments.
Audio Equalizer Effect
The audio equalizer allows you to tailor the audio tone to optimize voice quality in various use environments.
- 14-pin ACC connector with BTL amplifier output
- AquaQuake™ draining function clears water away from the speaker grill
- Audio compander
- Beat cancel
The IDAS radio can be used as a transparent data modem which transmits various data up to 3600 bps over the radio channel. The NXDN 12.5 kHz digital mode doubles the data speed.
Built-in GPS Receiver
The position data can be sent with voice call or status call and can be used with a third-party AVL (Automatic Vehicle Location) system. The GPS log functions logs user position data at regular intervals.
USB Port for PC Connection
The IDAS radio can be connected to a PC through a USB port for programming radios and accessing the installed microSD card in mass storage mode.
- Serial communication interface with Bluetooth® for wireless connection
- Radio programming through a microSD card
- Battery pack, BP-283
- Belt clip, MB-133
(May differ or not supplied according to version)
Some functions and options will be available in the future.
