CY-5000 / CY-6000

All-In-One, Digital + Analog Base/Repeater


All-in-One, Plug and Play IDAS™ Digital + Analog Repeater

The CY series is an all in one, plug and play digital and analog base station repeater. The CY has a robust and rack mountable chassis, auto battery backup, and it utilizes the IDAS UR repeater module, making it ready for everyday communications at full power.

Output Power:

50W (50% Duty Cycle) / 25W (100% Duty Cycle)


  136-174 VHF / 400-470, 450-512 UHF





Digital Conventional:

  IDAS built-in

Digital Trunking:

  Optional boards

Options with the Trunking Network Controller Board

The CY offers multiple configurations when adding the UC-FR5000 trunking and network controller board. These configurations are ideal for industries such as education, healthcare, hospitality, transportation and logistics, utilities, construction, oil and mining.

Single Site Trunking

Installing and programming a UC Board into the CY repeater can transform the CY from a conventional repeater into a trunked repeater system for a single site. Any IDAS subscriber digital radios are ready to operate on conventional or trunked digital radios for easy configuration choice. Single Site Trunking is ideal for a large area of operation with multiple groups and users.

Multisite Conventional

Inserting the CF-FR5000 02 card into the UC board, the UC and repeaters increase their capabilities to include multisite conventional operation. Multisite conventional systems connect conventional repeaters using an IP network to merge geographically distributed repeaters and operate them as one, or allow UHF and VHF repeaters to share traffic in a crossover configuration. This is ideal for operations that can merge multiple talk sites into one. Industries such as construction, mining, education, transportation and logistics would benefit.

Multisite conventional systems are possible with IDAS LINQ. Choose from the following configurations: LINQREPEAT, LINQREPEAT+, LINQVOTE, and LINQVOTE+.

Multisite Conventional Voting

The UC and CF-FR5000 02 card in a CY can be configured to a voting receiver, which is best for radios that cannot reach transmitters in areas of poor coverage. Once a signal is received at the voter, it is then transferred via IP to the repeater which then transmits the strongest signal. Voting allows the extension of indoor or underground communication which would benefit industries such as education, healthcare and hospitality.


The CY can be built to a 48-site, 30 channels per site trunked system that are linked via IP. Users have the ability to roam between sites and the administration of users into fleets of users. To unlock these capabilities, install the variant CF-FR5000MT card onto the UC slot. This is ideal for operations with multiple talk sites and fleets such as construction, mining, education, transportation and logistics.
