Vertex Standard VX-4500/4600

Expanded Signaling and Security

  • Both radios provide a full range of signaling capabilities including 2-tone, 5-tone and MDC 1200® encode/decode for selective calling.
  • Private communication is supported by built-in voice inversion encryption. And, if a radio is ever lost or stolen, 5-tone remote stun/kill/revive can be activated to ensure messages are only heard by those intended.

Enhanced Audio Performance

  • Features Channel Announcement which loudly speaks the current channel description to simplify changing channels when focused on other tasks simultaneously.
  • Includes voice activation (VOX) that enables users to transmit voice without pressing the Push to Talk button on the microphone. Enables hands-free operation for convenience
  • In noisy environments, activate the Clear Voice function to enhance audio transmit to ensure your message is heard. And, to ensure a radio is not accidentally turned down too low, a minimum volume limit can be programmed by your Dealer.
  • Whisper capability is also included to augment audio transmit when talking quietly is necessary for discreet communications.
  • Record and store up to 120 seconds for keeping an audible record of important messages using the optional DVS-8 Voice Storage unit.

  • As with all Vertex Standard mobile radios, the VX-4500/4600 Series includes Emergency alert for enhanced driver safety.
  • Operators can activate the Lone Worker function when leaving equipment or a vehicle temporarily. If a problem arises while away, the radio switches to Emergency mode to alert help.
  • When constant contact is required at all times, Vertex Standard’s exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTS™) is also included to inform the user that another ARTS™-equipped radios are within communication range.
