Specifically designed to meet the stringent demands of mission critical users, the ruggedized X10DR Elite models feature 128Bit AES encryption to provide the highest levels of voice security. These encryption keys are unique with each Gateway configuration and change constantly making them far more tactically secure than any traditional 256Bit radio solution where keys may change at best on monthly basis, if not sadly, yearly, if ever. When coupled with their relative short range, random location and the unique coding of every device, AES encryption provides the highest protection against the most sophisticated adversaries.
X10DR Elite provides up 700 meters (2400ft) coverage from the vehicle when configured with the XRTG roof top gateway. The standard Gateway configuration provides up to 500 meters (1600ft) line of sight when installed with the supplied multipolarity antenna mounted un-obstructed on a vehicle’s roof.
Knowing there are times when officers and first responders may need to wade into deep waters to save lives or property, the Elite handset has also been engineered to provide IP67 waterproof compliance.
Elite models are now also available with full duplex handsfree operation, allowing users to keep both hands on the job while communicating with each other locally on-site be simply double pressing the Talkaround button. Naturally, all communications from the host mobile radio are always heard and users can talk back immediately by pressing the X10DR handset’s PTT button.
The Elite model uniquely also provides a capability for multi handset setup where up to 3 secure handsets can operate simultaneously with a single gateway for a lower cost setup. This dual/triple connectivity capability means that the cost of a second gateway as well as the antenna, junction box and interface cables are not incurred. A similar design mobile charger is available for the additional handsets in these situations.
To provide remote users with network access flexibility when deployed in remote locations, the X10DR Elite models can be connected to special function boxes to allow dual radio access/control operation.
Elite gateways provide a high powered 8 watt audio output capability which can be used to provide an ‘in-car monitor’ function or alternatively, can be used as a public address system. Control buttons on the base of the gateway provide independent volume settings.
