Kenwood NX-5700/5800 Mobile Radio

Kenwood NX-5700/5800

One Radio, Multiple-Protocol Support

The NX-5000 Series offers unsurpassed interoperability for a wide variety of users as it supports three digital CAIs — NXDN, DMR and P25 (Phase 1 & 2) — plus FM analog in a single radio. Best of all, a desired CAI can be selected at will, giving you the freedom to migrate at your own pace — whether you are intent on going fully digital, undecided about which digital system to pick, or just wanting to maintain both digital and analog for a while. An NX-5000 radio can simultaneously support two digital protocols plus analog, offering the following combinations: FM/DMR/ NXDN, FM/NXDN/P25, and FM/DMR/P25.


A desired CAI can be selected at will – whether you are intent on going fully digital, undecided about which digital system to pick, or just wanting to maintain both digital and analog for a while. The NXDN air interface can fit into the very narrow 6.25 kHz bandwidth using FDMA technology. Ensuring spectrum efficiency, wide coverage and virtually unlimited scalability, it provides for nationwide expansion: Type-C Trunking Gen2 offers enhanced features, flexibility and performance, linking up to 1,000 sites or 24 networks.


For simple conventional communications, making use of existing infrastructure, DMR is an excellent, cost-effective solution. Being energy-efficient, it offers longer battery life. And thanks to 2-slot TDMA, it is possible to obtain 2 talk paths within an analog 12.5 kHz bandwidth, thus doubling the capacity. The NX-5000 Series supports Tier II conventional mode.


This digital CAI ensures interoperability among public safety agencies in North America, Australia and New Zealand. The NX-5000 Series is compatible with Phase 1 (conventional and trunked), and Phase 2 (trunked).

Intuitive Display and Operability: Mobiles

Full-color Display and More

Integrated luminance sensor on a 2.55-inch (154 x 422 pixel) 65,536-color TFT display automatically adjusts the brightness of the backlight. On the screen, text data is shown in multi-line, as much as 5 lines.

Detachable Front Panel

The front panel can be removed and used as a remote controller. Also the Featured Panel* and RF Deck can be purchased separately to create Multiple Configurations.

Renowned Kenwood Audio

Clear Communications Even In Noisy Environments

In addition to sophisticated sound analysis and optimization technologies, these radios feature Active Noise Cancelling based on leading-edge digital technology to offer clear communications even in very noisy environments.

Tough and Robust

MIL-STD Environental and Ingress Protection Standards

During the development stage, NX-5000 Series radios go through a number of stringent tests as shown below. As a result, the portable radios complying with IP67/68 immersion standards offer max. 2-hour protection at a depth of 1 meter*, while the mobile radios comply with IP54/55 dust/water ingress protection standards. *Applies for IP68
