Kenwood NXR-1700/1800 VHF/UHF Repeater
GenComm is proud to serve a diverse set of industries, from public safety to businesses, from schools to the medical field. Although their purposes and focuses may vary, workers in each industry need a reliable signal for their communication devices, like two-way radios, to work properly. To meet this need, GenComm is pleased to offer the Kenwood NXR-1700/1800 VHF/UHF Repeater, a compact, multi-mode conventional signal booster.
The Kenwood brand is built on innovative thinking, progressive engineering, and precision manufacturing. Fitting of these attributes, the NXR-1700/1800 VHF/UHF Repeater was introduced in July 2023. As a key piece of digital communications equipment, the NXR-1700/1800 supports features and performance to make it a worthy successor to Kenwood’s existing DMR and NXDN repeaters.
Key features of the repeater include:
- Built-in IP network adapter
- IP remote management (monitor / control / programming / test console)
- Multi-site conventional IP network up to 16 sites (for both digital & analog)
- Hot standby system redundancy
- Built-in SIP IF without external gateway (digital only)
The NXR-1000 Series repeaters require only a quarter of the rack space compared to the NXR-710/810 or TKR-D710/D810 series models. In addition, the NXR-1000 Series repeaters take up only half the rack space of other 1U repeaters that are 19 inches wide.
A large OLED display is featured on the front panel—easily visible at 1.71 inches wide. The display can show the following information: MAC/IP address, RSSI/TX power setting icon, channel number/name, and RF frequency, as well as firmware/ESN/license/error information and other statuses.
When ordering, the desired digital protocol is chosen to set up individual units for either DMR or NXDN, with the option to keep the factory default setting of FM analog. Lightweight and space-efficient, the Kenwood NXR-1700/1800 VHF/UHF Repeater is a powerful solution for achieving better coverage and longer range, thereby facilitating consistent communication in mission-critical situations.
