Centralized Control for Improved Efficiencies
To give operators an easy way to control multiple radio channels, telephones, paging encoders, intercoms, video, and informational assets, Zetron's Radio Dispatch Consoles integrate a complex network of resources into a single system.

Tailored for Any Application

Zetron offers communication solutions to a wide-range of private and professional organizations that need a dedicated radio-telephone system to manage resources, coordinate operations, distribute information, and control communications between workgroups.

Unlimited Capacity

A central communications control center can be as simple as one operator managing day-to-day operations with field personnel through a single radio dispatch console. A large command and control center can have over a hundred operators tasked with critical communications and force management of thousands of mobile personnel and workgroups.

Project 25 Compatibility

Homeland Security funding has created a large demand for interoperable solutions and APCO Project 25 (P25) migratable equipment. As one of the leading providers of radio consoles to the public safety market, we are frequently asked if our radio dispatch consoles are Project 25 'compliant'. This question is often asked because federal homeland security communications interoperability funds should only be spent on equipment that has a P25 migration path. Zetron's Project 25 Application Note explains the status of P25 and the various interface options available for Zetron consoles.


Whatever the scope and complexity of the operation, Zetron can configure a system that precisely meets the user's capability and capacity requirements.

 SYSTEM CAPACITY M4010 S4000  DCS-5020*  Acom**  VoIP RDS
Radio Channels/Telephone Lines 12 48 30 2000+ 20
 Parallel Operating Positions 2 - 4  16 16 200+ 12

* The DCS 5020 system has a total capacity of 30 interfaces available for use as a combination of radio, telephone and/or console positions.
**Dependent on system configuration

The Series 4000 is a communication control system designed for medium-sized communications centers. In addition to exceptional reliability, the Series 4000 offers easy programming and economical upgrades. The Series 4000 provides operators with an efficient means of monitoring and dispatching with up to forty-eight radios, both conventional and trunked.

Unique Series 4000 capabilities include PC-based operator positions, trunked radio compatibility, and an integrated instant recall recorder that captures radio traffic on each channel.

The Common Control Unit (CCU) is the central controller responsible for switching and routing multiple audio channels between operating positions and the external devices such as base stations, control stations, repeaters, telephones, monitor receivers, and intercoms. The CCU also provides 72 relay switched outputs, 48 opto-isolated inputs, and 192 non-isolated inputs for control and monitoring of external devices.

Two sizes of common controllers are available. The primary difference between the two CCU models is capacity, which ensures an economical upgrade path. The Model 4020 provides a single card cage solution for configurations requiring a maximum of 6 operating positions, up to 20 channels, and 10 cross channel patches. For larger applications, the Model 4048 accommodates up to 16 operating positions, 48 channels, and 24 cross channel patches. The Model 4048 can be mounted in an optional cabinet.

The Series 4000 supports full-featured PC-based workstations, desktop pushbutton, and rackmount pushbutton console positions. Any combination of these operator position options may serve on the same Series 4000 Common Controller.
