Durability
NEXEDGE Repeaters, Base Stations, Portables, and Mobiles must meet the demanding needs of heavy industrial applications and tough job requirements. Quality control is ensured by subjecting each new model to a battery of stringent tests before it is launched. All our products are compliant with MIL-810 and IP54/55 weather-proofing.
Rugged Design to Support Mission-Critical Operations
Key to the development and manufacturing process, we subject KENWOOD radios to numerous tests of durability. Under rigorous conditions, the radios are subjected to water immersion, temperature extremes and impact tests. All NEXEDGE radios are both MIL-STD and IP certified.
Intrinsically Safe: Worldwide Directives/Certifications for IS Radios
FM Approvals is a certified agency authorized to
conduct internationally recognized ANSI/ISA testing for
Intrinsically Safe Apparatus. In China, CQST is a safety
certification standard for electrical products to be used
in hazardous areas. USTC certification assures conformity with relevant US and Canadian standards. CSA is the Canadian Standards Association and CSA US is recognized in the United States. IEC Ex is an International certification system for Ex products Scheme. ATEX directives are EU standards for equipment to be used where there
is a potential risk from explosive atmospheres; certified products eliminate the risk of ignition and ensure safe operation.
Note: Please read the IS Manual very carefully before using the IS radio. The radio/battery combination must be strictly observed. There must be no substitution of items, even if the substitute has been previously approved for use with other KENWOOD communications equipment. Do not use the radio with any battery or accessories or options in a hazardous atmosphere unless they are specifically certified for such use; otherwise, an explosion or fire could result. Charge batteries only in areas known to be non-hazardous (in fresh air).
IS certified models are:
NX-200, NX-300, NX-210, NX-410, NX-411, NX-220, NX-320, NX-420; Check with KENWOOD on specific models that may be compatible* *Model availability may vary depending on region/country.
