IP730D/ IP740D Hybrid LTE/Digital Two Way Radio Series
IP730D/ IP740D Hybrid LTE/Digital Two Way Radio Series The IP730D series from Icom is a new Hybrid radio that can provide nationwide coverage over LTE networks as well as conventional VHF/UHF professional radio mode (IDAS digital/Analogue radio modes) to work locally. The versatility of having two technologies (LTE & IDAS Digital PMR) merged into one, provides a range of options and applications for industries ranging from event and facility management to large utility infrastructure projects. LTE Mode
LTE mode provides secure private push-to-talk communication over an LTE (4G) and 3G network* allowing coverage in areas such as building basements or high-rise floors where conventional radio systems may not reach.
* Network coverage provided by Icom UK custom SIM card. IDAS Mode
IDAS digital mode is a conventional VHF/UHF radio mode using licensed professional radio channels. It provides Individual, Group and All calls with PTT operation. This provides a stable, local alternative for scenarios such as working in remote, mountainous areas where 4G/3G networks are not available. Sub PTT Button for Dual Mode Operation
The IP730D series has two PTT buttons; the main and sub PTT button. You can use one for LTE communication and the other for an IDAS/Analogue channel. The sub PTT button offers smooth switching between talking on LTE and IDAS/Analogue channels. Simultaneous TalkListen Function in LTE Mode
The Simultaneous TalkListen function provides full-duplex one-to-many communication in LTE mode which users can talk and receive at the same time like a telephone style conversation. Built-in Bluetooth Technology (dependent on version)
Built-in Bluetooth capability provides wireless operation with a Bluetooth accessory. The optional Bluetooth headset, VS-3 has PTT and programmable buttons. IP67 Waterproof and Dust-Tight Specification
The IP730D series is durable enough to endure water pressure under 1- meter depth for 30 minutes and has dust-tight protection. The radio meets MIL-STD-810 specifications. 1500 mW Powerful Audio
Icom’s high-power capacity speaker delivers a loud 1500 mW audio output with improved acoustic sound clarity for noisy environments.
* Typical at 10% distortion. Emergency Call Features
By holding down the orange emergency button, users can transmit an emergency call. In addition, the radio has three emergency related functions: Man Down, Lone Worker and Motion/Stationary Detection functions. If one of these functions is activated, the radio automatically transmits emergency signals to alert your controller or dispatcher of any potential trouble. Digital Voice Recording/Playback
The IP730D series can record incoming calls of up to 4 minutes, or a maximum of 10 messages, and the user can check recorded communications. Compatible with RMS-IP LTE Radio Dispatcher
The IP730D series is compatible with Icom UK’s RMS-IP LTE radio dispatcher. The IP730D series has a built-in GPS receiver that can automatically transmit position data at programmed intervals allowing you to track, manage and communicate with other users on your Icom LTE radio network.
* LTE mode only RoIP Gateway to Link to Other Systems
With the VE-PG4 RoIP gateway, the IP730D series can interconnect with an IP phone and various radio systems including WLAN radio, satellite PTT, LTE, IDAS and analogue radios. Dual Mode
The IP730D series can receive both communications from an LTE radio group and IDAS (or analogue) group at the same time (audio mixed). You can press either the main PTT for LTE or the sub PTT button for IDAS or analogue channel to answer in accordance with pre-programming. If necessary, you can press the main and sub PTT buttons to address two groups at the same time. Bridge Function
The Bridge Mode Function* relays received IDAS digital audio to the LTE radio group, while transferring the LTE radio conversations to the IDAS group. This function is useful when communicating outside of the LTE service coverage area with an IDAS radio, or temporary cross band connection between two IDAS radio groups using different frequencies or channels.
* When using the Bridge function, operating time will be shorter and output power of the IP730D/IP740D is reduced to 1 W. Bridge function is not available in Analogue mode. General Features
