The IC-FC5000E is an external controller for a dPMR™ Mode 3 multi site trunking system. dPMR is a 6.25 kHz FDMA based digital radio protocol described in the ETSI technical standards TS 102 658. It offers 6.25kHz spectrum efficiency, higher security and greater audio clarity even on the edge of the communication range.
dPMR™ Mode 3 Digital Trunking
In a dPMR Mode 3 digital trunking system, when a user requests a call through a dedicated control channel, the trunking controller automatically allocates one of the traffic channels and sets up the call. The system can accommodate a large number of users on a limited number of repeater channels with high efficiency. The System Control Software can interconnect multiple trunking controllers over an IP network, so the system can be expanded from a single site system to multiple sites and increases coverage.

Centralized Control Channel Trunking
Employing a high performance power amplifier, together with the solid heatsink built into the chassis, the IC-FC5000E provides a reliable 100% duty cycle operation at 50W output.
Up to 32 Channels in a Site
The IC-FC5000E controls up to 32 channels of connected repeaters over an IP network. (One control channel and up to 31 traffic channels.) The IC-FC5000E can be configured from a web browser through an IP network.
Up to 32 Site Multi-site Trunking
When used with the CS-FC5000SCS, System Control Software, up to 32 trunking controllers can be connected over an IP network for linking multiple sites. A radio can communicate with other radios registered to the interlinked trunked sites for wide area roaming and calling service.
Channel License System
Four channel license activation key is supplied with the IC-FC5000E controller. When deploying five or more repeaters channels in a site, additional channel license activation keys are required for each repeater channel.
If all traffic channels are busy, the user’s call request is automatically stored in the call queuing until a traffic channel is available. A beep sound notifies when a traffic channel is available.
Emergency Call with Pre-emption
The emergency call can give priority level to a normal call in the call queuing. If all traffic channels are busy, the emergency call forces another normal priority call to be cleared down.
