Powerful DMR repeater for small radio networks

The Hytera RD985 digital repeater is the heart of a multi-site conventional analogue or digital radio network. Offering innovative design and reliability, this repeater delivers excellent coverage with up to 50W power.

The Hytera RD985 can be operated in analogue and digital mode and are completely compatible with analogue systems currently in use. The RD985 is your perfect companion to deliver a professional digital radio network.

The heart of professional radio systems
All the repeaters from Hytera can be connected in digital mode via IP connection to a comprehensive radio network. In analogue mode, the repeaters can be connected together back-to-back. Both in conventional analogue and DMR modes (DMR Tier II), the RD985 and RD985S repeaters can be used with the RD625 and RD965 repeaters in a radio system.

Improved utilisation of the frequency spectrum
Thanks to the TDMA technology, twice as many users can use the same channel. Due to restricted frequency resources, this represents an important relief and reduces expense for system terminals and licences.

Dual mode and automatic change
Both repeaters can switch independently between the digital and analogue modes, depending on the type of the receiver signal.

Secure communication
To protect your radio communications, the RD985 and RD985S repeaters offer advanced digital encryption functions, according to the DMRA specification. Depending on the variant, both repeaters support encryption with 40, 128 or 256 bit.


High transmitting power
Both repeaters oer an adjustable transmitting power of up to 50 watts and therefore satisfy the high requirements for modern PMR radio systems.

Extremely reliable
As they are designed to military standards, both repeaters offer consistently high reliability and excellent performance. Test results from independent laboratories have shown that the device can be operated for up to 100,000 hours without interference (MTBF) and it therefore meets the requirements for use in extreme situations.

Flexible installation options
The RD985 and RD985S repeaters can be installed in a 19-inch equipment rack with an optional installation kit. Alternatively, they can be
operated simply on a rack, a bracket or a table. With the additionally available installation kit, an optional duplexer can be housed in the chassis.

High cooling capacity
The power amplifier can dissipate any generated heat with extraordinary efficiency. In addition, the integrated fan system ensures stable
and powerful operation.
