Durable On-the-Job Responsiveness
The industrial grade VX-450 portable analog radio series maximizes worker uptime with expanded safety applications and convenient built-in features designed for heavy duty use.
Monitor Worker Safety
As with all Vertex Standard radios, the VX-450 portable radio series includes built-in Emergency and Lone Worker alerts. Emergency notification is user-initiated with a press of a button for the radio to switch to a designated channel and send an alert for help. Lone Worker 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. When constant contact is required at all times, Vertex Standard’s exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTS) is included to inform the user that other ARTS- equipped radios are within communication range. The optional Man Down function (with DVS-9 unit) is programmable to monitor a variety of worker timed safety scenarios vertically and horizontally as well as worker degree of motion. Adjusting the settings of the 3-axis sensor adapts the radio to each distinct work environment to monitor movement.
