Kenwood DMR Digital Hand Portables, Mobiles, Repeaters, Simulcast and Tier 3 Trunking
Kenwood offers a wide range of DMR hand portable, mobile radios and repeaters meeting with ETSI TS 102 361 Tier 2: Conventional DMR and Tier 3: Trunking.
ETSI TS 102 361 DMR refers to three Tiers:
DMR Tier I: Unlicensed
DMR Tier II: Conventional
DMR Tier III: Trunked
DMR Tier 2 and Tier 3 Solutions
Tier 2 devices offer fully automatic digital/analogue mixed mode operation which makes Kenwood DMR ideally suited to users migrating from an analogue system to the benefits of digital without having to replace all their devices at the same time, while Simulcast operation and Tier 3 trunked network capabilities ensure there is a Kenwood solution to meet a wide variety of end-user applications.
The Kenwood DMR range includes low, mid and high-tier hand portables, mobiles, repeaters and software suites; all designed to meet the requirements of commercial and operations critical radio systems in an ETSI compliant, multi-vendor solution.
Entry-level convenience, but with Kenwood performance
The TK-D240 (VHF) and TK-340 (UHF) models offer a simple, user-friendly, hand-portable two-way radio with the reliability and durability required for professional use and meeting with MIL STD 810 G and IP54/55. They incorporate features you would expect in higher-tier models including 5-Tone Signalling, Busy Channel lock-out, Programmable Function Keys, Lone Worker Function and Kenwood’s advanced noise reduction technology for superior audio quality.
The TK-D240/340 are also compatible with Kenwood’s KAS-10 Software Suite which significantly increases system flexibility with a cost-effective AVL and Dispatch capability; allowing you to record conversations and monitor the status of the radios anywhere on site.

The remarkable Multi-Protocol NX-5000 and NX-3000 Series
Designed specifically for mission critical users, the NX-5000 Series hand portable walkie-talkies and mobiles offer users the ability to communicate in analogue, NXDN, DMR and P25 formats providing unsurpassed interoperability when it matters most alongside a host of user safety features. An NX-5000 Series radio automatically identifies a call signal – whether it’s NXDN (FDMA), DMR, P25 Phase 2 (TDMA) or FM Analogue – and transmits in the same mode received.
The NX-3000 Series takes many of the advanced features and capabilities of the mission critical NX-5000 Series to business and commercial users in a cost-effective, multi-protocol radio in either DMR plus FM Analogue or NEXEDGE NXDN plus FM Analogue configurations; which makes the NX-3000 Series an ideal solution for those migrating from analogue to digital as users can switch to and from DMR + FM Analogue or NXDN + FM Analogue operation at any time as their needs evolve or change over time.
