OTAR (LZA0578)

OTAR (Over-The-Air-Rekeying) is the common name for the method of changing encryption keys over the air. The use of OTAR drastically reduces the distribution of physical keying material, allowing you to update radio encryption keys wirelessly through a designated key management facility.

AES/DES Encryption (LZA0577)

AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) development has been a co-operative venture between the U.S. government and the private industry sector resulting in a universal encryption system. AES and DES (Digital Encryption Standard) allows you to communicate with other radios that have the specific key programmed. RELM’s AES/DES Encryption is NIST certified, validated FIPS 140-2 Type III encryption with a 256 keyload.

Intrinsically Safe (LZA0558)

This option guards against the possibility of an electrical spark causing a fire or explosion, and is designed for use in hazardous environments. The IS (Intrinsically Safe) certification for the DPH portable covers Class 1 (petroleum/gas environments); Division 1 (flammable material present continuously); Group D (hazardous locations); and Group T3C (temperature rating).
