We have a ready made cable kits that connects an MTM5400-family
radio or an MTM800E radio to a Mimer Network Interface.
This gives remote capability of audio and PTT and it also gives the possibility of a virtual control head connected through the
All connections are made from the rear connector on the radio.
Example of use
- Local use when several dispatchers want to share one radio
- Remote use where a dispatcher at one location want to talk to radio
users at a different location
- CrossPatch between Tetra and other two way radio, like DMR, Analogue, Airband or MPT
Please note that there are settings that needs to be done in the radio
for Mimer SoftRadio to work.
Cable Kit for MTM5400-family
The virtual control head will work in parallel on many operator PC:s, any
changes on one PC will be shown at once on the other PC:s.
But the virtual control head is not fully parallel with the radios control head,
as it is on other radio models.
If you go into a menu on the radios control head you will not see the change on
the virtual control head and vice versa. But if you for example change a talk
group it is shown at once.
The radios control head is not needed, so you can actually install the system
without a standard control head
mounted on the
The PEI-port of the radio does unfortunaly not cover all the
functions you would expect on a Mimer SoftRadio virtual control head. There for
we can not build a full virtual control head, like we do for other radios. But
we have made an interface that mimics the standard control head as far as it is
possible and more features will also be added in future updates.
If you are familiar with the radio, you will recognize the menu
system and easily navigate through it.
All basic functions are there:
TalkGroup list and selection
Scanning; list edit and scan on/off
Short dial list and calls
SDS sending and receiving
Change of TMO/DMO
Radio Info menu
We have also simplified by taking out some of the features that are not needed for a PC
dispatcher, like setting of display light, changing the screen saver etc.
We have added two keys on the virtual control head for faster access to reading
and writing SDS messages, without needing to go into the menu system.

Please note that since the PEI port is used for the remote control of the radio,
you can not use the PEI port for other applications on the same radio.
* A separate type of interface and cable kit us used for the MTM5500. Itīs PEI
port is interfaced in the DB9 connector on the front and not in the back of the
Also for MTM5400 with the Data Expansion Head, PMLN4908, the PEI port is on the
DB9 front connector and another cable kit needs to be used.
