Extensive Band Coverage in One Radio

The VX-2100/2200 series is designed to cover the full band in the VHF and upper range of the UHF bands, so you get a broader band coverage all in one radio.

Channel Capacity for Maximum Communication

Opt for the VX-2100 series with 8 channels for easy operations or the VX-2200 series with 128 channels for large group communications. Either way, efficiency is maximized.

Additional Scanning Options

Unlike other two-way mobile radios, the VX-2100/2200 series provides exceptional flexibility in scanning features that are designed to optimize operation for different types of environments. In addition to basic scan, you also get Priority, Dual Watch, Follow-me, Follow-me Dual Watch and Talk Around scanning built-ins.

Ensuring Worker Safety

The VX-2100/2200 Series comes standard with built-in Emergency and Lone Worker alerts to enhance driver safety.

Compatibility with Existing MCD System

Add the optional VME-100 board to make VX-2100/2200 mobile radios compatible for use with the rest of your MDC-1200® fleet.

Exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System - ARTS™

Like all other Vertex Standard radios, the VX-2100/2200 Series is designed to inform you when you and another ARTS™- equipped station are within communication range. A great solution to keep your workers coordinated.
