Kenwood Kairos – KA-160/450/500

The KAIROS DMR Tier 2 and Tier 3 solution featuring Conventional / Trunked repeaters with integrated Simulcast capability are the perfect platform for any DMR application, from standalone sites to large systems.  Ideal for organizations that require wide area communication with limited frequencies.

Product Description

Multi-protocol

KAIROS repeater supports Analog, DMR Tier 2 & Tier 3, Paging (both Analog and POCSAG), and P25 Conventional
protocols. Automatically switches between analog and digital modulation, according to the type of incoming signal.

IP Multi-site Roaming & Simulcast

Fully IP-based distributed network architecture supporting multi-site, multi protocol network solutions in
multicast or simulcast mode of operation.

RF Linking

Provides RF backhaul among sites where the IP backbone is not available, carrying analog and digital signals.
IP, UHF, and VHF links can be mixed in a single network.

System Redundancy

Supports flexible redundancy design as either 1+1 (Main + Standby) or with backup Primary functionality
(a Secondary station that automatically replaces the failed main Primary, restoring all network functions).

Soft Diversity Reception

KAIROS soft diversity receiver technology allows for enhanced coverage and improved signal reception in
RF fading conditions.

Powerful Remote Control

The remote control tool also ensures secure software upgrades, diagnoses IP backbone issues, and continuously
assesses the health of the entire radio system. KAIROS also integrates directly with 3rd party network management
systems using the standard SNMP protocol.

Light and Ruggedized

Compact and lightweight. Thanks to its environmental robustness, KAIROS can perform in harsh site conditions.

Reliable

KAIROS repeaters come standard with various reliability schemes including automatic protection schemes such
as power range control, reverse polarity protection, peak and transient handling, soft start, current limiting and RF
power limiting capabilities.
