P25 or NXDN™, the choice is yours.

The NX-5000 Series supports 2 digital CAIs — P25 (Phases 1 & 2) and NXDN™ – plus FM analog in a single radio. Unsurpassed interoperability is in your hands.

Freedom to migrate at your own pace

A desired CAI can be selected at will – whether you are intent on going fully digital, undecided about which digital system to pick, or just wanting to maintain both digital and analog for a while.

P25 Phase 1&2 Digital CAI

P25 is a digital CAI to ensure interoperability among public safety agencies. The NX-5000 Series is compatible with Phase 1 (conventional and trunked), and Phase 2 (trunked).

NXDN™ Digital CAI

NXDN™ is a very narrowband protocol employing 6.25/12.5 KHz FDMA technology. NXDN™ offers a variety of advantages including spectrum efficiency and stability, scalability, flexible channelization, and wider coverage area.

Automatic Call Identification

An NX-5000 Series radio automatically identifies a call signal – whether it’s P25, NXDN™, or FM analog – and transmits in the same mode received.

Enhanced Mixed Operation

Enhanced Mixed Zone allows any digital CAI and/or FM analog to reside in the same zone. Zone scan automatically sets all users in the same zone in the same RX/TX mode.


Two configurations to choose from

Choose between two portable configurations – one without a numeric keypad and the other with numeric keypad (16-key model). Both styles feature the 4-way Directional-pad (D-pad) and 2-position lever switch.

Full-color, 1.74-inch color LCD

A 1.74-inch (240 x 180 pixel) 65,536-color Transflective LCD, capable of displaying a multi-line text and colored icons, can be viewed clearly in direct sunlight or in the dark, even while wearing polarized sunglasses.


Clear Communications Even in Noisy Environments.

In addition to sophisticated sound analysis and optimization technologies, these radios feature Active Noise Cancelling based on leading-edge digital technology to offer clear communications even in very noisy environments.


MIL-STD Environmental and Ingress Protection Standards

During the development stage, NX-5000 Series radios go through a number of stringent tests as shown below. As a result, the portable radios complying with IP67/68 immersion standards offer max. 2-hour protection at a depth of 1 meter*, while the mobile radios comply with IP54/55 dust/water ingress protection standards.

*Applies for IP68




Hands-free operation is vital for many NX-5000 users. The radios’ built-in Bluetooth® module is compatible with Headset and Serial Port Profiles (ver. 3.0) and keeps your hands free.


Featuring an integrated GPS module and antenna, NX-5000 portable radios can transmit positional data, enabling effective management when used with tracking applications like KAS-10 software. Mobile models can support GPS with the optional KRA-40G.


For storing voice and data, memory capacity can be increased up to a huge 32GB on a microSD card.*

* Purchase a card separately


Secure communications are an essential requirement, especially for public safety applications.

NX-5000 radios are equipped with 56-bit key Data Encryption Standard (DES) encryption. For even higher protection the radios can support 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption with optional module.


Man-down Detection, Stationary Detection, or Motion Detection will be automatically engaged when the embedded acceleration and tilt sensors detect unusual behavior. Lone Worker function automatically places the radio in Emergency Mode if it is not operated for a certain period of time.

The bright orange Emergency Button is located at the top (portables) or front (mobiles) of the radio for high visibility and instant access when needed.


Manage Multiple Batteries to Extend Lifetime

Extend battery lifetime and ensure that the batteries are optimally maintained. The system comprises High-capacity Li-Ion Battery Series (KNB-L1/L2/L3), Intelligent Charger (KSC-Y32), and Battery Reader software (KAS-12).

* Up to 1,000 batteries can be managed at a time (requires additional option).
* Long Life Charging Mode: stops recharging at 80% capacity to extend life.
* Deterioration (end-of-life) notification

High-capacity Li-Ion Battery Series

Suited for distribution and courier services, this is the simplest configuration. The detachable front control panel of the NX-5700/5800 is used as a Remote Control Head.

Intelligent Charger KSC-Y32

Battery conditions are displayed in color illuminated indicators on the charger, which are also displayed on a connected PC with the same color scheme.

Color-coordinated patterns provide users with at-a-glance information for comprehensive battery management.
