VX-920 Series Dependable Radios

Portable, Dependable Radio Communications

VX-920 Series

Dependable communications for
long-term reliability

The VX-920E Series is ready to respond when you are with state-of-the-art engineering and a wide array of features, providing great value in its class.

VX-920 Series portable, dependable radio features

Withstands Harsh Environments
Rain, snow, fire suppression spray and dust are no problem for these radios manufactured to strict IP ratings. The VX-920E series meets international waterproofing standard IP57 where water does not harm the radio when submersed to a depth of 1 metre for up to 30 minutes.

Never Miss An Important Call
Includes DTMF paging and unmatched flexibility in scanning features that are designed to optimise operation in a wide variety of environments. In addition to basic scan, you also get Priority, Dual Watch, Follow-me, Follow-me Dual Watch and Talk Around scanning with a programmable home channel function built-in.

When Safety Counts – Never Be Alone
When help is needed, the VX-920E Series has Emergency notification that will switch to a designated channel and send an emergency alert. The radios also include Remote Listen which turns the radio on remotely if needed to check out what is happening near the radio.

Loud Audio For Noisy Environments
With 700 mW audio output, be assured of hearing critical information you need.

Dual-Band Receive For Enhanced Communications
With the Sub-Receiver option, get dual-band receive for greater flexibility and multi-agency interoperability when full situational awareness at all times is a must. Single VHF or UHF transmit with dual-band receive makes Public Safety operations less stressful and more productive.

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 co-ordinated.
