Kenwood NX-3220E Description

Part of the next generation of portable two way radio technology, the Kenwood Nexedge NX-3220E is a high-performance multi-mode model that seamlessly combines voice, text and data communications. It has the capability of operating seamlessly on mixed digital and FM analogue protocols, enabling it to serve with distinction in a wide range of industries.

A compact full keypad display handset, the NX-3220E features a 14-character, four line screen with a 12-key alphanumeric keypad, plus a large 4-way D-pad for scrolling through menu options on screen. It supports text messaging, and comes with in-built Bluetooth and GPS.

NX-3000 series radios feature an integrated GPS receiver/antenna which shares location data for every handset.  Each radio utilizes built-in DSP (digital signal processing) to identify and connect to the applicable Bluetooth profiles of wireless devices. This includes Bluetooth Headset Profile (HSP), which which can be used to pair the radio with a Bluetooth headset profile provided for hands-free use. Bluetooth Serial Port Profile (SPP) also enables communication with peripheral devices for various applications.

One of the standout features of the NX-3220E is its ability to operate in both analogue and digital modes simultaneously. This makes it ideal for digital upgrades, giving you the freedom to migrate from older analogue handsets gradually as new digital radio can still be used as part of a mixed analogue-digital fleet.

In addition, the NX-3220E also operates in two digital modes, the standard DMR protocol and Kenwood’s own NXDN protocol. Each handset has 260 available channels in digital mode as standard, but this can be expanded to 1000.

Using the DMR protocol, dual slot direct mode can double the channel capacity to scale up the size of the network, and also supports site roaming so you can use the same handset in multiple places. In NXDN mode, Type C and Gen2 trunking can increase the overall number of channels available even further. NXDN also supports over-the-air-programming for configuring handsets remotely via Wi-Fi. Additionally, a software license certification system facilitates extensive customisation of features to suit a host of different business categories.

Ideal for operation-critical applications in industry, the NX-3220E offers consistently outstanding audio in all environments. It features Kenwood’s trademark Active Noise Reduction (ANR) technology, which removes background noise to ensure clean, high-fidelity audio cuts through even in the noisiest locations.

As a VHF DMR radio, the NX-3220E boasts extensive signal coverage which makes it well-suited to use outdoors. It is designed for use in all weather conditions and in tough environments and comes with a range of safety features. These include Lone Worker, which issues an alert to users if the handset is now used for a fixed period of time. Activity Detection uses a motion sensor built into the handset to trigger alerts if abnormal movement is detected, including Man Down fall alerts. And a one-touch Emergency Button overrides all calls on the network in order to raise an alarm.

Despite its extensive feature range, the NX-3220E is straightforward to use. Aside from the keypad, other functions are controlled by a volume switch, a channel selector and a push-to-talk button. On top of the handset there is a 7-colour LED indicator which displays the current operating mode.
