Compact Size Portable radios with Robust Capabilties

Compact Size Portable Radios With Robust Capabilities

Don’t let the size deceive you. The smallest portable analog radio offered by Vertex Standard is unobtrusive and easy to wear all day and built with more enhanced features typically not found in other portable radios of this size. Designed to perform in the most demanding and critical conditions, the VX-820 Portable Analog Series gives you maximum radio performance for less in size and less in total cost of ownership. 

Withstands Harsh Environments

Rain, snow, fire suppression spray and dust are no problem for these radios manufactured to strict IP ratings. The VX-820 Series meets international waterproofing standard IP 57 where fresh water does not harm the radio when submersed to a depth of three feet for up to 30 minutes.

Intrinsically Safe

Intrinsically safe models are SGS certified to the requirements of ANSI/UL913 5th Edition for use in Class I, II, III, Division 1; Groups C, D, E, F, G; Temp T3C hazardous locations.

Long-Lasting Power for Responsiveness

For maximum performance, the VX-820 Portable Analog Radio Series offers a choice of Li-Ion battery power up to 3000 mAh for over 20 hours of battery life (per specifications).

Tailored Communications to Meet Your Demands

Get the ultimate signaling performance with a choice of multiple 2-tone Encode and Decode or 5-tone siginaling to support the most advanced communication needs. The front panel also includes a 7-color LED with a variable flash pattern for custom incoming call alerts.

When Safety Counts - Never Be Alone

Includes Emergency notification that will switch to a designated channel and send an emergency alert for help.

Also includes Remote Listen which turns the radio transmit on remotely if needed to check out what is happening near the radio.

For enhanced user safety, the Lone Worker mode 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.

Exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTS™)

Always know your connection status. Only Vertex Standard portable radios are designed to inform you when you and another ARTS™-equipped portable radio are within communication range. If out of range, your radio senses no signal has been received and beeps to alert you. A great solution to keep your workers coordinated.
