NXDN Digital Air Interface
NEXEDGE® radios employ NXDN®, an FDMA digital air interface with AMBE+2™ voice coding technology, unique filtering and a 4-level FSK modulation technique with low bit error rate (BER) even at weak RF signal strengths.
Enhanced Audio Quality
AMBE+2™ VOCODER technology accurately replicates natural human speech nuances for superior voice quality, even at highway speeds. Additionally, the powerful 36mm-diameter speaker delivers up to 1 watt audio output, providing undeniably clearer and crisper audio.
The slim contours and ergonomic design of the NX-240/340 make it comfortable to hold, while the dimples on both sides ensure a firm grip.
Switchable Digital And Analog Dual Modes
The NX-240/340 is effectively two radios in one – analog and digital – operating on 25* /12.5 kHz in analog zones, and on 12.5* / 6.25 kHz NXDN® in digital zones. For convenience, a PF key can be used to switch between zones.
NXDN Type-D Digital Trunking
The NX-240/340 supports the NXDN® Type-D digital trunking protocol. With this architecture, also known as distributed or decentralized trunking, all channels can operate as traffic channels without the need for a dedicated control channel. This makes it possible to develop an efficient and reliable yet affordable trunking system. Type-D trunking is thus suitable for users considering migration to a small-scale digital trunking system.
Compatible with NEXEDGE® Digital Conventional Mode, this radio offers 64 RAN (Radio Access Numbers) and individual & conference group calling to ensure expeditious communications.
Confidentiality in radio communications is a KENWOOD priority, and helping to maintain a high level of security in analog mode is a 16-code voice inversion scrambler, while robust NXDN® encryption is available in digital mode.
The optional KMC-48GPS Speaker Microphone will enable GPS tracking applications to work with the NX-240/340. GPS data can be transmitted at programmed timing, or upon receiving a request.
