Internal Configurations

Save rack space from expensive external accessories with the CY5300 series internal configurations. Choose from three internal options: RX pre-selector installed, notch duplexer installed, or the notch duplexer and RX pre-selector installed.

Auto Battery Backup

The internal auto battery backup mode supplies power to the CY5300 series when the power supply detects a sudden loss of A/C input power. Maintain communications during unexpected power outages. Battery is not supplied.

IDAS™ Simulcast Systems

Installing the optional UC-FR5300 board, CF-FR5300 (SC) card and the UX-241 GSNSS antenna enables simulcast, which increases coverage and eliminates dead spots. IDAS™ Simulcast transmits digital repeater signals and GNSS synchronization signals on the same frequency to reduce signal loss in overlapping signal areas. Simulcast automatically selects the best signal by each repeater to distribute and retransmit. Compared to conventional multi-site systems, all NXDN™ compatible IDAS™ radios do not have to scan, vote or roam.

Trunking Options

Simulcast Conventional

Increase range in difficult RF environments with Simulcast Conventional. Simulcast Conventional uses one frequency for a for all subscriber units. The one frequency keeps signals strong in overlapping areas, this also eliminates the need for scanning, voting, and roaming. The UC-FR5300 board and CF-FR5300SC card are required to work with simulcast, simulcast only works with the CY5300.

Multisite Conventional

Inserting the CF-FR5000 02 card into the UC-FR5300 board, the UC and repeaters increase their capabilities to include multisite conventional operation. Multisite conventional systems connect conventional repeaters using an IP network to merge geographically distributed repeaters and operate them as one, or allow UHF and VHF repeaters to share traffic in a crossover configuration. This is ideal for operations that can merge multiple talk sites into one. Industries such as construction, mining, education, transportation and logistics would benefit.

Multisite Conventional systems are possible with IDAS™ LINQ™. Choose from four configurations: LINQ™REPEAT, LINQ™REPEAT+, LINQ™VOTE, and LINQ™VOTE+.

Single Site Trunking

Installing and programming a UC-FR5300 board into the CY5300 repeater can transform the CY5300 from a conventional repeater into a trunked repeater system for a single site. Any IDAS™ subscriber digital radios are ready to operate on conventional or trunked digital radios for easy configuration choice. Single Site Trunking is ideal for a large area of operation with multiple groups and users.

Multi-site Trunking

The UC-FR5300 board and CF-FR5000MT card in a repeater can be configured to a voting receiver, which is best for radios that cannot reach transmitters in areas of poor coverage. Once a signal is received at the voter, it is then transferred via IP to the repeater which then transmits the strongest signal. Voting allows the extension of indoor or underground communication which would benefit industries such as education, healthcare, and hospitality.
