Evolve to Better Communication and Value with our
Smallest, Water Submersible Digital Portable Radio

You can afford to enhance your communications with the digital performance of eVergeTM two-way radios. eVergeTM 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.

Compact and Discreet

The EVX-S24 is our smallest and lightest digital radio. It is slim and easy to carry so it is ideal for hospitality, education, retail and for any market that values convenience and size.

Water Submersible and Dust Proof

The EVX-S24 meets international standard IP67 for water submersibility and is dust proof. The EVX-S24 is protected from immersion in water up to 3 feet (1 meter) for 30 minutes and offers complete protection from dust.

Conversion Made Easy with Digital to Analog Integration

eVergeTM radios operate in both analog and digital modes and can be used with any existing analog two-way radios.

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 with encode capabilities to halt or “interrupt” any current transmission, in favor of a priority message. EVX-S24 is decode only, which allows messages to be interrupted.

Better Radio Call Quality

Digital eliminates noise and static from voice transmit to only deliver the intended voice message crisply and clearly. eVergeTM digital radios feature the AMBE+2TM vocoder for enhanced voice quality.

Better Message Control and Privacy

Control who you call and who gets your message in digital mode. Digital radios each have a unique ID enabling users to select who they need to call or send a text message without including others.

Site Search

Move between multiple sites seamlessly by using the Site Search functionality on your EVX-S24 radio. Manually or automatically initiate Site Search to identify the signal of the closest site with the strongest signal strength. The EVX-S24 portable will dynamically change its pre-programmed home site to the site with the strongest signal in range. Great for operations with multiple locations or buildings with multiple floors.
