Everything under control: the PTC680 combines TETRA functionality and broadband services in one device

Hytera’s new PTC680 is a smart, top-of-the-range TETRA radio that also enables fast and secure broadband data transmission and the use of apps via broadband services. The combination of TETRA and LTE technologies ensures virtually limitless communication.

The 325 gram device from Hytera’s innovative series of Multi-mode Advanced Radios is the ideal communication solution for all types of mission-critical operations as well as for daily business operations with special requirements.

The PTC680 combines TETRA wireless functionality, LTE technology and the benefits of an Android-based smartphone with flexible data transfer via WiFi, Wi-Fi, NFC or Bluetooth in a single device. It is sufficiently robust (MIL-STD 810 G and IP68 certified) to withstand the harshest and most challenging environments.

The new TETRA multi-mode radio from Hytera has two HD cameras – a front camera with 5 megapixels and a camera on the back with 13 megapixels – for taking pictures and videos (in Full HD). The data storage of the radio (32 GB) can be expanded via micro SD card slots. The PTC680 captures video in real-time and provides continuous communication with back-end systems, such as emergency response communications to their control centres. This ability to quickly share information results in faster response times in application situations, making situation-based decisions easier. Using this feature in industry makes operations much more efficient.

The 3.6-inch, high-resolution colour touchscreen user interface is simple and intuitive to use, even with gloves, for faster emergency response and quick access to information. It can be operated with just one hand via a rotary knob, a smart key, the PTT button and five programmable buttons. The most important information can be captured at a glance on the top display. This makes the PTC680 a valuable assistant in all critical operations.
