Coverage beyond typical frequency limits allows programming in "guard band" channel allocations, and ensures compatibility for programming in a wide variety of locations.
POWER OUTPUT: 70 W (LOW BAND), 50 W (VHF), 40 W (UHF)
Providing a solid 50 Watts of VHF power output (Low Band: 70 Watts; UHF: 40 Watts), the VX-4000's construction includes a massive, die-cast outer case which doubles as the heatsink. And the Automatic Power Control (APC) circuit ensures stable power output over a very wide range of ambient temperatures.
12.5/25 kHz BANDWIDTH PROGRAMMABLE PER CHANNEL
The VX-4000 may be programmed with Wide or Narrow operating bandwidths, channel by channel, to conform to your local channel environment. Ideal for multi-jurisdiction operations.
2.5 kHz STEP FOR VHF
Ensuring full compatibility with all channel loading requirements, the VX-4000's synthesizer provides 2.5 kHz resolution. Channel programming therefore is
straightforward in all configuration situations.
LARGE 8-DIGIT ALPHANUMERIC DISPLAY
Providing indication of either the channel number or an Alphanumeric Channel Label of up to 8 characters, the LCD display utilizes large, bold characters on its high-intensity backlit amber LED display to provide excellent visibility over a wide range of viewing angles and in difficult lighting situations.
7 PROGRAMMABLE BACKLIT KEYS
The front panel keys may be programmed by the dealer for a variety of operating functions, allowing customization of the front panel functions to your unique requirements. The keys are illuminated from behind, as well, for easy viewing at night.
LOUD 5W/10W AUDIO OUTPUT
The VX-4000's high-powered audio (5 Watts standard, 10 Watts optional) is coupled to a large, front-facing speaker, producing high-quality, crisp audio that will punch through even in the noisy environments experienced by public safety officers.
STATUS QUICK-CHECK (SQC) Feature (Patent Pending)
The VX-4000 can be programmed to include the Status Quick Check (SQC) feature, which allows the user to check the configuration of all controls, keys, and knobs on the radio. This enables the operator to avoid missing important communications in the event that a control or switch is set to the wrong position.
The VX-4000 may be programmed to transmit an Emergency DTMF ANI burst, with or without a live microphone engaged, to alert the dispatcher to an emergency situation requiring assistance to the user.
The FVP-25 Encryption Unit provides security for your important public safety and private security communications, and it also includes a DTMF Paging function for selective calling.
INTERNAL EMERGENCY MICROPHONE (Patent Pending)
In an emergency situation, the VX-4000 can transmit using an internal microphone
should the regular microphone become damaged or otherwise unusable.
DIE-CAST CONSTRUCTION ALUMINUM CHASSIS/ENCLOSURE
The one-piece die-cast enclosure for the VX-4000
double as its chassis, yielding extreme strength for
shock and vibration. This uniquely rugged construction ensures that
specifications and functionality will be maintained for many years,
despite the shock, vibration, and other abuse typically experienced by
radios in public safety use.
The ABS front panel is sealed by a robust O-ring,
and all switches are covered by U-shaped silicone rubber gaskets to protect the internal
circuitry from dust, humidity, salt fog and driving rain.
WATER-SHIELD MICROPHONE CONNECTION
The multi-pin microphone connector on the side of the VX-4000, sealed for protection against weather, provides a convenient connection point for the available microphones. Its gold-plated contacts ensure many years of reliable service.
RADIO TO RADIO CLONE FEATURE
For quick programming of VX-4000 radios for an emergency task force, the Clone feature allows copying of all channel and other configuration data from one VX-4000 to another, using the optional
CT-72 Cloning Cable.
