Kenwood USA has released several new products that enhance its communications equipment offerings.
The NEXEDGE® System firmware Version 2.8 enhances the GPS/AVL utility; and the KGP-149RM Repeater Monitor Software enables continuous monitoring of repeaters on an NXDN trunked or conventional IP network. Meanwhile, the new NEXEDGE NX-200S/300S non-LCD platform portables, NXR-700E/800E 25 Watt Repeaters, and NEXEDGE 900 MHz products are among the latest developments in the digital NEXEDGE line up.
The 2.8 firmware update provides operators with expanded capabilities specifically related to the GPS/AVL function for both repeaters and subscriber
units including additional ID and reporting, power on/off status, and remote updating.
The KGP-149RM Repeater Monitor Software can be used with NXDN single-site and multi-site trunked networks or NXDN® conventional IP networks and allows 24/7 monitoring and alerts to problems with any repeater within the system, with custom alarm and notification features.
The new NX-200S/300S, non-LCD portables are ideal for users on a NEXEDGE system that do not require full operating capabilities. New NXR-700E/800E Repeaters, at 25 watts of output power, are designed for users who require lower power capabilities, and the NXR-710/810 Repeaters include the updated Version 1/5 firmware update to allow conventional voting operation for expanded capabilities. Users who require 900 MHz operation now have NEXEDGE capabilities in a full line of subscriber and infrastructure products.
