The Vertex Standard VX-231 provides wide band coverage, a variety of signalling features and improved ergonomics* that adds up to a better return on your investment.

  • Description

Improved Portability
A radio that won’t get in the way, the VX-231 is compact and light weight to easily carry with you on the job.

More Battery Power
Designed to use powerful Li-Ion battery technology for longer battery life. Includes a 1150 mAh battery providing 9 hours of operation with the battery saver enabled.

Wide Band Coverage for Added Value
One radio designed to cover VHF and UHF bands, which provides expanded options in frequencies to use.

More Scanning Options
While many radios provide 1 or 2 scanning options, the VX-231 radio gives you 4 additional scanning options for greater convenience and flexibility for the way you need your radios to perform. Options include: Priority, Dual Watch, Follow Me and Talk Around scan.

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 coordinated.
