Intrinsically Safe Full Power Digital Radio

PD708 UL913

UL913 and CSA Certificated Explosion-proof Safety

Hytera PD708 intrinsic safety radio is designed upon the requirements of USA UL913 and Canada CSA standards, the radio works safely in most hazardous environments with explosive gas and dust particles.

Reliable Quality

PD708 is strictly compliant with MIL-STD-810 C/D/E/F/G and IP67 standards, ensuring outstanding performance even in harsh environments.

Support MPT and DMR Trunking Modes

Upgradable software enables new features without buying a new radio could also be switched into MPT and DMR trunking modes with corresponding license a applied on the same hardware.

High Audio Quality and Assured Communication

Benefited from the latest digital DMR technology, PD708 ensures your workers talk and hear clearly over excessive noise.

Ease To Use

With large PTT, volume, channel knobs and programmable buttons, PD708 is easy to operate even when wearing gloves. 

Larger Li-Ion Battery Capacity, Longer Cycle Life

Equipped with 2400mAH and UL913/CSA certificated Li-Ion battery, PD708 provides with shift life of 18 hours under 5-5-90 duty cycle. And the battery life-span becomes longer because the charge/discharge cycles are reduced.

Higher Spectrum Efficiency, Higher Channel Capacity

Benefiting from the TDMA technology, PD708 doubles the channel capacity based on the same spectrum resource. This is a big help to relieve the stress of increasing shortage in spectrum resource.

Dual Modes (Analog + Digital)

PD708 can operate in either analog or digital mode. It is compatible with the prevalent analog system, ensuring a smooth analog-to-digital migration.

Dual-slot Pseudo Trunk

With this feature, the free slot can be allocated to a member that needs to communicate, effectively enhancing frequency efficiency and allowing you to communicate timely under emergency situations.

Secure Communication

PD788 supports option board interfaces to radio, allowing third party partner to develop various applications to interconnect with radios to control the radio to expand its functionalities! Among the supported features are voice recording, encryption etc. Please refer to the API Partner Programmed for more information!

Dual Modes (Analog+Digital)

Besides the basic encryption of the digital technology, PD708 provides enhanced encryption capability (such as 40,128, 256-bit encryption algorithm) and the Scrambler feature (optional).

Data Services

PD708 supports data capabilities of sending Private, Group text message.

Various Analog Signaling Types

PD708 supports various analog signaling types (HDC1200, DTMF, 2-Tone and 5-Tone), various squelch control types (CTCSS/CDCSS), thus providing higher function expansion capacity to the analog world.

Supplementary Services

PD708 supports supplementary services of Radio Check, Remote Monitor, Call Alert, Radio Enable and Radio Disable.

Enhanced Safety

Hytera PD708 provides a dedicated emergency button. In case of any accident, a press on the button will trigger an alarm and initiate a voice call to a pre-programmed work fellow or group. Built-in Man-down, GPS and Lone Worker functions are also available with the digital portable.

Versatile Services

In addition to conventional communication services, PD708 features rich data services and selectable functions such as Text Message, Scan, Emergency, Man Down (optional), Auto Registration, High-speed Data Transmission and Lone Worker.
