Evolve to Better Communication and Value


The Migration to Digital just got easier and more affordable. The EVX-261 is the perfect entry radio to enable you to enhance your communications with the digital performance of eVerge™ two-way radios. eVerge™ radios are compact and precision engineered to deliver value without sacrificing quality — giving you more capabilities and the flexibility you need to communicate at your best.

Superior Audio Output

Excellent Audio performance allows for better message clarity so you can be heard loud and clear in all situations.

Expanded Interoperability

The EVX-261 boasts abundant signaling options such as MDC1200®, DTMF, 2-tone and 5-tone capabilities, as well as voice inversion encryption, providing seamless integration into a mixed fleet.

Direct Mode

Direct Mode enables you to have two communication paths on a single frequency effectively doubling your call capacity without the need of a repeater.

Transmit Interrupt

When seconds matter, transmit interrupt allows an operator to halt or “interrupt” any current transmission, in favor of a priority message. Transmit Interrupt functionality ensures your critical messages will connect.

Safety Not Sacrificed

Emergency alert can be programmed to instantly notify help with a press of a button. Lone Worker is a built-in timer that requires the user to reset at a predetermined interval. If not reset, the radio automatically switches to Emergency mode to alert help. An ideal solution for supervisors to monitor the safety status of radio users working alone. VOX capable with accessory.

Universal Battery System – One Size Fits All

The Universal Battery System for Vertex Standard portable radios takes energy interoperability to a new level by utilizing a single charger base to support multiple radio series when used with designated UNI batteries. Eliminate equipment clutter and confusion by consolidating down to one battery and charging platform and increase your productivity.
