Completely New CPU/FPGA Platform

The IC-FR5300 series is the second generation IDAS™ Repeater, keeping system compatibility with the original IC-FR5000 series and continuing its unique package. It looks the same as the IC-FR5000, but a new CPU/FPGA platform is used. The IC-FR5300 series provides digital simulcast system capability and ±0.1 ppm high frequency stability with a 1 pps reference signal from the GNSS antenna.

System Scalability

The IC-FR5300 series can be easily upgraded by installing an optional UC-FR5300 Network/controller board and software provided with a CF card. Depending on the communication density and coverage, your radio system can grow from a single site to a simulcast system or multi-site trunking* system, to match your communication needs.
* Compatible IDAS radio terminals are required for multi-site trunking.

D-SUB 25-Pin Accessory Connector

The IC-FR5300 series has a programmable D-SUB 25-pin accessory connector for connecting an external remote control devices. Also, modulation/demodulation signals can be input/output from the D-SUB connector.

50W Output at 50% Duty Cycle or 25W 100% Duty Cycle Operation*

Employing a high performance power amplifier, the IC-FR5300 series provides a reliable 100% duty cycle operation at 25W output. When operated at the high power setting of 50W, the repeater operates with a 50% duty cycle.

* 25 W output power depending on the repeater version. Ambient temperature: 25°CAmbient temperature: 25°C

50W Output at 100% Duty Cycle or 100W 50% Duty Cycle Operation with Optional Power Amplifier*

When need higher power, the optional UR-PA5000/UR-PA6000 series power amplifier provides 100W output power with a 50% duty cycle and 50W output with 100% duty cycle.

* Ambient temperature: 25°C

Capable of Installing Two RF modules in One Chassis

The IC-FR5300 series has an internal space for installing another RF unit. Two RF modules* can be installed and operated independently. LEDs on the front panel shows the status of both channel.

* Optional UR-FR5300/UR-FR6300 required.

Digital/Analog Mixed Mode and Multiple Tone-Group Using CTCSS, DTCS Tone and RAN

The IC-FR5300 series can receive both analong and digital modes on a channel, and transmit either mode, depending on the programming. It decodes multiple CTCSS and DTCS as well as digital RAN (Radio Access Number) codes on a per channel basis (up to 16 tones/codes) and downlinks the received signal with a specified tone/code.

32 Channel Capacity and 5 Programmable Buttons

The 12-digit alphanumeric display, 5 programmable buttons, 32 memory channels and internal speaker enable you to use the repeater as a simple base station, or to check repeater activity. The LCD shows a variety of text and code information.

IP Remote Maintenance

When the IC-FR5300 series is connected to an IP network through the optional UC-FR5300 network/controller board, PC programming and IP address setting can be made from a remote location. The SNMP traps and Syslog can be sent to your manager for remote monitoring.

Other Features

  • 19-inch rack mount 2U height low profile
  • Receiver voting function improves talkback capability of radio terminals in the field
  • RC-FS10 remote communicator software works as a simple dispatch station to communicate with radio terminals through the repeater
  • CW ID transmitter
  • PTT priority setting (Local Microphone, external PTT or repeater operation)
  • 5-Tone decoder* (* For analog mode only)
  • DTMF encoder/decoder
  • Low voltage alert
