funktel FT5

High End TETRA Handset for Industrial Settings

The TETRA handset FT5 offers an optimal ergonomic design and complete protection against external influences without compromising on function.

All TETRA functions of the FT4 series are still available according to ETSI standard, in addition with state-of-the-art technologies such as Smart Ready Bluetooth for audio connections or a 4-way GNSS satellite receiver for optimal positioning. 

Like its predecessor, the FT5 has a rugged, dustproof and waterproof housing (IP65), but is much smaller, lighter and handier than most TETRA radios on the market, making it an ideal portable and comfortable handheld.
