    VX-180      Vertex Standard

Rugged, Durable Portables Ideal for Factory or Fleet.


Built to meet or exceed the requirements of the U.S.Vertex Standard VX-180 Internal Frame MIL-STD 810 C/D/E standards, the VX-180 is designed to survive under difficult operating conditions of shock, vibration, and driving rain. Cost performance begins with durability, and the Mil-Spec toughness of the VX-180 is your guarantee of its design quality.

8-CHARACTER ALPHANUMERIC DISPLAYVertex Standard VX-180 Portable Two-Way Radio Display
Providing indication of either the channel number or an Alphanumeric Channel Label of up to 8 characters, the LCD display also provides convenient operation function icons to provide instant recognition of radio status.

Housed inside a high-impact case, the die cast chassis of the VX-180 provides a solid, rugged foundation for the VX-180's circuitry. Built to survive in the real world of factory, construction site, or fleet use, the VX-180 will provide many years of reliable communications.

3 PROGRAMMABLE OPERATING FUNCTION KEYSVertex Standard VX-180 Portable Two-Way Radio Soft Keys
Customization of feature access is easily accomplished at the time of programming. Flexibility in assignment of features ensures compatibility with existing-system requirements.

High-performance Encoder/Decoder circuits for both CTCSS and Digital Code Squelch are provided, for access to tone/code controlled systems. DCS is ideal for crowded RF environments, providing superior immunity from false opening of squelch. accessories. Its gold-plated contacts ensure many years of reliable service.

This built in feature allows you to decode up to two, 2-tone pairs per channel. These can be used for two individual pager calls, or one for Individual and one for Group call.


ARTS™ (Auto Range Transponding System)
Included in the VX-180 is Vertex Standard's exclusive ARTS™ feature, which can be critically important in search-and-rescue applications. ARTS™ provides a "hand-shake" with other ARTS™-equipped transceivers, and the display indicates if an "Out of Range" condition exists. The base station can then alert the field unit to move to a better location.

To maximize battery life, the VX-180 includes both transmit- and receive mode battery savers. On transmit, the portable will reduce power when the incoming signal is very strong. On receive, the radio will put itself into a pulsing "sleep" mode, periodically checking for channel activity.

The channel and feature configurations are easily programmed in minutes by the dealer, using the optional CT-42A Programming Cable and CE44 Programming Software.

For quick programming of VX-180 radios for fleet use, the "Clone" feature allows copying of all channel and other configuration data from one VX-180 to another, using the optional CT-27 Cloning Cable.

Ideal for reception in noisy environments, the VX-180's high-powered audio is coupled to a large internal speaker, assuring solid copy throughout difficult construction site or field operations.
To facilitate efficient channel management, the VX-180 provides Busy Channel Lock-Out (BCLO) and Busy Tone Lock-Out (BTLO) features. What's more, the transmitter's Time-Out Timer (TOT) function prevents a "stuck microphone" condition from jamming a channel for an extended period of time.


The high-speed scanning capability of the VX-180 includes "All-Channel" scanning, plus Dual Watch and Priority Channel capability. And with "Follow-me" scanning, a designated channel may be watched during scanning of other channels.
