Intrinsically Safe Digital Portable Radio

PD798 Ex

Improved PCB Circuit Layout & EMC Shielding

To achieve such a high safety standard, Hytera PD798 Ex adopts optimized distributed line design on PCB, minimizing the odds of circuit fault. All the key components on the PCB are covered with shield, and the space between lines, between components, between component and shield are properly spaced , which translates to better EMC performance and less internal interference.

Innovative Silicone Encapsulating

Silicone encapsulant technology prevents the internal circuits from interface with air and liquid which effectively stops the intrusion of liquid, dust and harmful gas. The silicone encapsulating process is delicate and complicated. As a result, every single PD798 Ex radio spends eight hours in the manufacture line.

Innovative Electrostatic Free Design

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

Hytera applies patent on electrostatic free design and dual-material molding technology in this intrinsically safe portable. The static dispersive material (blue) minimizes static accumulation on the surface, thus reducing the probability of static discharge on the radio. Meanwhile the robust material (black) maximizes the ruggedness of the enclosure.

IP67 (non-explosion-proof)

The Ingress Protection reaches IP67 (6: Totally protected against dust; 7: Protected against the effects of immersion up to 1m for 30 minutes). It's the highest IP level for land-based wireless radio application.

Patented Battery Latch

To disengage the battery from Hytera digital portables, the lock and bolt of the latch need to be moved along two different axes. Such a patented design ensures no disengagement of the battery pack from the main radio in case of dropping that might cause spark.


ATEX is the European Union directive to which all two-way radios must conform if used in potentially explosive environments. It replaces the Cenelec classification in all European Union member states and EFTA countries.

IECEx Scheme is the future route to global compliance certification. Its aim is to harmonize standards to allow free movement of goods by establishing a world-wide accepted standard.
