Icom America announced the FR9000 Series, a P25 110W repeater operating 100% duty cycle. This high-performing unit has the features required for interoperable communication such as P25 conventional, analog FM and mixed mode operation. Combined with Icom’s P25 subscriber units, the new repeater provides public safety agencies a complete Icom P25 compliant system.
Icom's new FR9000 Series complies with Project 25 standards and achieves 100% duty cycle at 110W (VHF F9010 model) and 100W (UHF F9020 model) output. The Mil-Spec repeater has a heatsink built into the chassis, promoting stable and continuous operation. Icom’s new repeater can also be configured as a base station and has a 500 memory channel capacity, user-friendly interface and an internal speaker. A programmable D-SUB 25-pin accessory connector is available to secure an external P25 trunking controller or remote control.
The new P25 repeater joins Icom's current P25 interoperable “all-in-one” F9011 portable and F9511 mobile radios with built-in P25 conventional, P25 trunking and analog conventional. Both subscriber series possess P25 Compliance Assessment Program (P25CAP) certification and FIPS 140-2 validation.
