IDAS bridges the gap between analog and digital systems
IDAS is Icom's digital land mobile radio system using the NXDN™ common air
interface. It has useful calling features including selective calling, status
message, radio stun/kill/revive and GPS position reporting, etc. The IDAS system
is ideal for business and industry users who may want to migrate to a digital
system or to the future FCC mandated narrow band spacing.
IDAS™ multi-site conventional systems
Multi-site conventional systems are possible with IDAS LINQ. Choose from the following configurations:
LINQREPEAT, LINQREPEAT+, LINQVOTE, and

MultiTrunk now available
IDAS mult-site operation has now expanded to trunking! Add a
UCFR5000 and the new CF-FR5000MT
card and many IDAS trunking sites can be interconnected to create a large roaming coverage area

- Scalable from 1 channel to 30 channels per site, up to 16 sites
- Effective operations with all channels used to transmit voice or data payload, priority
monitoring for emergency interrupt, and polite roaming while conversations are occurring
- All the features of a digital radios, like text, GPS and group/individual calls available in
- Best value on the market for a multi-site trunking system
Double your channel capacity
IDAS doubles the capacity of the current 12.5kHz channel allocation. Icom allows
you to meet any narrow banding requirements today, and provides a solution to
any future spectrum deficiencies.
Digital/analog mixed mode operation
The IC-FR5000 series can receive both analog and digital signals on a single
channel. You can partially introduce the IDAS system, while using the existing
analog radios in a system. The IDAS system allows you to scale migration to
narrow band digital at your own pace and need.
Improved audio quality
The IDAS system occupies only 6.25kHz spacing per channel. With the improved
sensitivity of narrow band communications, increased communication greater than
12.5kHz analog mode can be achieved. The IDAS system uses the AMBE+2™ codec,
which provides clear audio and simultaneous data communication.
The IDAS repeater has a network interface*
and can be connected to a LAN or the Internet via Ethernet cable. Communication
range is vastly extended by the Internet connection and eliminates the need for
expensive leased lines. When connected to a PC via a LAN or the Internet, you
can remotely maintain the repeater configuration remotely from your PC.
* Option (Available in the future)
Digital trunking capability*
The repeater will also have digital trunking capability in the near future. This
will allow you further effective channel management by sharing a minimum of
channels with a large number of users.
* Some features are planned and released in the future.
19-inch rack mount 2U height low profile design
The IC-FR5000 series uses only 2U height. This low profile
configuration allows you to stack multiple units in an industry
standard 19-inch rack and provides great space efficiency.
Two RF channel modules in one unit
Two RF modules* can be installed in a
chassis to reduce installation space, while the RF modules can be programmed and
operated independently. LEDs on the front panel show both channel conditions.
* Optional UR-FR5000/UR-FR6000 required.
50W output at 50% duty cycle,
25W 100% duty cycle operation
Employing a high stability ±0.5ppm oscillator and high performance power
amplifier, the IC-FR5000 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.
Multiple CTCSS, DTCS tone and RAN code decode
The IC-FR5000 series 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. This function is
useful for sharing a channel with multiple groups and provides quiet stand-by
while using other groups.
Superior receiver performance
The IC-FR5000 series has class leading receiver performance of
selectivity and intermodulation rejection. It improves the
quality of the repeater service even under congested band
D-SUB 25-pin accessory connector
The IC-FR5000 series has a programmable D-SUB 25-pin accessory connector for
connecting various trunking controllers or external remote control devices.
Also, modulation/ demodulation signals can be input/ output from the D-SUB
The built-in inversion type* voice scrambler provides secure conversation as stadard.
When a more secure system is required, the 32 coded non-rolling type voice scrambler UT-109R*
and 1020 code rolling type UT-110R* are available as an option. In IDAS digital mode,
a 15-bit encryption key provides over 32,000 scrambling codes.
*These voice scramblers (inversion type, UT-109R and UT-110R)
are available with analog mode only.
Built-in audio compander*
The built-in audio compander improves the signal to noise ratio and provide clear audio.
*Analog mode only.
- PTT priority setting (Local Mic., external PTT or repeater operation)
- Built-in inversion type voice scrambler and optional voice scrambler UT-109R or
- 5-Tone and DTMF encoder/decoder* and CW ID
- Analog wide/narrow (12.5/25kHz) channel spacing programmable*
- Normal and priority scan
- Convenient key assign stickers supplied
- Beat cancel capability
