More information


The Hytera AP585 series business radio is the perfect choice for instant communication that puts you in full control. Featuring a 1.4 inch LCD display and full keypad, the AP585 nonetheless still prioritises simplicity and convenience with a user-friendly, lightweight design. Which makes it the ideal partner in sectors like education, retail, leisure, hospitality and more.

Screens are handy on two way radios for displaying information such as which channel you are on and for scrolling through call groups. Having a keypad also makes it easier to set up call groups and allocate users to them. These and other productivity and efficiency increasing features make the AP585 is a great option for supervisors and team leaders.

As an analogue model, the AP585 relies on technology that has served two way radio well for 100 years – broadcasting in continuous radio waveforms, rather than the on-off code transmitted by digital radios. Digital is known to have a number of performance benefits. But analogue two way radio still has its place because it is more affordable and simpler.

The AP585 adds to that with a number of perks that take its overall performance up a notch or two. One is noise cancellation.  Usually a piece of technological wizardry associated with digital two way radios, Hytera bends the rules to the user’s advantage by adding an algorithm that eliminates background noise, minimises distortion and prevents feedback howl when two handsets are used in close proximity to one another. This all means that the compact and light AP5 series can deliver loud and clear audio that allows you to hear and be heard in noisy environments, without needing the output power of larger models.

Another benefit is enhanced signal range. Digital radios are generally said to have a 20% extended range compared to analogue radios. But thanks to a combination of a specially designed monopole antenna and high sensitivity receiver unit, the AP585 is considerably more efficient at picking up signal than most standard analogue models. It can still process signals at a communication distance up to 11% further than standard, and is also less prone to signal drop out. If you use a repeater to boost coverage, the AP585 also allows you to continue operating seamlessly in direct mode when the repeater malfunctions or handsets are out of range of it.

The AP585 is as sturdy as you would expect any business class device to be while still being highly portable. And despite its compact size, it still boasts incredibly long battery life in its most minimal form. With an energy efficient low consumption design, the AP515 is fitted with a 4000mAH li-polymer battery that will keep the handset functioning for 17 hours when fully charged. A Type-C USB charge plug allows users to charge the radio with a power bank anywhere on the move, further boosting productivity and talk time to help get your work done.

With optional Bluetooth enabled, you can take audibility up another level again by pairing the AP585 with wireless headphone and microphone sets. With voice broadcasts going straight into an earpiece, there’s even less chance for background noise to get in the way of a message being heard. Plus, it gives users the flexibility of using the AP585 hands free on the move.

As a security feature, the AP585 inverts and restores the frequency spectrum in transmission and reception to encrypt the voice of a caller, protecting your communications from outside listeners.
