Smye-Rumsby provides DPAC with secure comms
Smye-Rumsby has provided Hytera PD605 radios to the Dover Partnership Against Crime (DPAC), an organisation set-up to prevent theft in Kent.
Each member of the partnership has been provided with a device, through which they communicate with the police, CCTV operatives and each other. Repeaters have been set up around Dover, Deal and Sandwich, ensuring coverage across the area.
The PD605 is specifically designed to help users migrate from analogue – which DPAC was using prior to the change – to digital, by providing both analogue and digital modes. It has advanced signalling and encryption for secure communication, as well as emergency buttons, GPS and man down features.
Speaking of the devices, DPAC’s Karen Griffiths said: “We’re very pleased with the new radios. We have good transmission, a noise development port to allow for integration of third party cancellation and excellent coverage and applications.
“We’re looking to extend DPAC out to further parts of the Dover area. We now have the confidence that we’ll be able to communicate safely and clearly.”
The PD605 is available in UHF and VHF frequency bands, and has an IP67 rating and built-in pseudo trunking to increase frequency efficiency.
