1). NXDN DIGITAL AIR INTERFACE
NEXEDGE® radios employ NXDN®, an FDMA digital air interface with AMBE+2™ voice coding technology, unique filtering and a 4-level FSK modulation technique with low bit error rate (BER) even at weak RF signal strengths.
2). ENHANCED AUDIO QUALITY
AMBE+2™ VOCODER technology accurately replicates natural human speech nuances for superior voice quality, even at highway speeds. Additionally, the powerful 36mm-diameter speaker delivers up to 1 watt audio output, providing undeniably clearer and crisper audio.
3). ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE
RF output power is 5W for both VHF (NX-240) and UHF (NX-340). Additionally, the UHF frequency coverage on the NX-340 is 70MHz.
4). ERGONOMIC DESIGN
The slim contours and ergonomic design of the NX-240/340 make it comfortable to hold, while the dimples on both sides ensure a firm grip.
5). 32 CHANNELS / 2 ZONES
The NX-240/340 can be used with two conventional zones, offering up to 16 channels per zone.
6). SWITCHABLE DIGITAL AND ANALOG DUAL MODES
The NX-240/340 is effectively two radios in one – analog and digital – operating on 25* /12.5 kHz in analog zones, and on 12.5* / 6.25 kHz NXDN® in digital zones. For convenience, a PF key can be used to switch between zones.
*Version 2.0 models are compatible with Analog 25KHz & Digital 12.5kHz
7). 6.25/12.5 kHz NXDN DIGITAL CHANNEL
Digital communications are more spectrum-efficient and offer wider area coverage than analog.
8). NXDN CONVENTIONAL
Compatible with NEXEDGE® Digital Conventional Mode, this radio offers 64 RAN (Radio Access Numbers) and individual & conference group calling to ensure expeditious communications.
9). NXDN TYPE-D DIGITAL TRUNKING*
The NX-240/340 supports the NXDN® Type-D digital trunking protocol. With this architecture, also known as distributed or decentralized trunking, all channels can operate as traffic channels without the need for a dedicated control channel. This makes it possible to develop an efficient and reliable yet affordable trunking system. Type-D trunking is thus suitable for users considering migration to a small-scale digital trunking system.
10). HIGH SECURITY
Confidentiality in radio communications is a KENWOOD priority, and helping to maintain a high level of security in analog mode is a 16-code voice inversion scrambler, while robust NXDN® encryption is available in digital mode.
11). GPS CONNECTIVITY
The optional KMC-48GPS Speaker Microphone will enable GPS tracking applications to work with the NX-240/340. GPS data can be transmitted at programmed timing, or upon receiving a request.
