Memory for Enhanced Group Communications

For group communications, get the radio that best serves your needs with 501 programmable channels in the VX-4200 Series. In addition to 501 channels, the VX-4200 keeps operations easy with Direct Channel Access. For smaller operations, consider the 8-channel VX-4100 Series option.

Prevent Unauthorised Use

If lost or stolen, the VX-4100/4200 Series has built-in 5/6-tone features that allow for over-the-air kill and revive to prevent misuse of missing radios.

When Safety Counts

As with all Vertex Standard mobile radios, the VX-4100/4200 Series comes standard with built-in Emergency alert for enhanced driver safety. A panic button can be triggered by the front panel button or remotely to alert the dispatcher when problems arise.

Dual-Band Receive For Interoperability

When full situational awareness is needed, add the receiver option to get single VHF or UHF transmit combined with dual-band receive to better coordinate communication.

Exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System - ARTS™

Only Vertex Standard radios are designed to inform you when you and another ARTS™- equipped station are within communication range. If out of range for more than 2 minutes, your radio senses no signal has been received and beeps to alert you.The base station can then alert the field unit to move back in range.A great solution to keep your workers coordinated.
