When Safety Counts
As with all Vertex Standard Mobile Analog radios, the VX-5500/6000 Series includes Emergency alert for enhanced driver safety. A panic button can be triggered by the front panel button to alert the dispatcher when problems arise.
In addition, the VX-5500/6000 Mobile Analog Radio Series features an internal emergency microphone on the front panel so the driver can continue to communicate with dispatch should the regular microphone become unusable.
Horn alert capability enables base station operator to issue a 2-Tone, 5-Tone or DTMF signal remotely to activate the car’s horn to go off as an additional emergency alert to draw attention to the vehicle.
Loud, Full Sounding Audio
Audio companding ensures full sound for narrow band channel applications. Use the optional 12W rear external speaker for enhanced safety.
Exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTS™)
Always know your connection status. Only Vertex Standard radios are designed to inform you when you and another ARTS™-equipped 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.
