The Vertex Standard VX-5500 delivers reliability and easy expandability for your networked, dual-band operation. Get tailored communications and a maximum return for your investment.
Large Channel Capacity for Greater Reach
The VX-5500 provides convenient communications planning with its 20 channel capacity and the ability to program up to 20 memory groups with no limit on the number of channels in each group.
Built For Durability
The one-piece die-cast enclosure for the VX-5500 doubles as its chassis, yielding extreme strength for resistance against shock and vibration and avoids over-heating.
Multi-Configuration For Dual-Band Capability
1 VX-5500 Control Head and 2 RF Decks on different bands may be networked for dual-band operation. Low Band, VHF or UHF radios may be combined to meet complex communications requirements involving federal, state and local government operations.
When Safety Counts
The VX-5500 Series, as with all Vertex Standard mobile radios, comes standard with built-in Emergency alert for enhanced driver safety. A panic button can be triggered by the front panel button to alert the dispatcher when problems arise. The VX-5500 also has an internal emergency microphone that can transmit should the regular microphone become damaged or unusable.
Loud, Full-Sounding Audio
Audio companding ensures full-sounding audio for narrow band channel applications. The VX-5500 also has 5 Watt high-powered audio output for crisp audio that helps you hear in noisy environments. Plus use the optional 10W rear external speaker for enhanced clarity.
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.
