MIL-STD 810 C/D/E
Built to meet or exceed the requirements of the U.S. MIL-STD 810 C/D/E standards, the
VX-210A is designed to survive under difficult operating conditions of
shock and vibration.
Cost performance begins with durability, and the Mil-Spec toughness of the
VX-210A is your guarantee of its design quality.
LIGHT WEIGHT AND COMPACT SIZE
Weighing just 3/4 of a pound and measuring just 4.21" x 2.28" x 1.0" (WHD) the VX-210A is ideal for business, industry, and public safety applications where light weight and compact size are important.
CTCSS / DCS ENCODE + DECODE
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.
A DTMF Automatic Number Identification string may be programmed into the VX-210A, providing the dispatcher with a multiple-digit confirmation of the transmitting portable's identity.
DUAL 2-TONE DECODE
For applications where a portable may be receiving calls from more than one dispatcher on a particular channel, the VX-210A includes a built-in Dual Two-Tone Decoder circuit.
POSITIVE LOCK CHANNEL SELECTOR
The channel selector of the VX-210A is a "Lift and Turn" knob, which virtually eliminates the possibility of accidental channel change.
BCLO, BTLO, AND TOT FUNCTIONS
To facilitate efficient channel management, the VX-210A 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.
Maximum channel coverage and operating flexibility are provided by the multiple Scanning modes. These include two-channel Dual Watch, Priority Channel Scanning, and "Follow-Me" Scanning.
(Auto Range Transponding System)
Included in the VX-210A is Vertex Standard's exclusive ARTS™ feature, which provides a "hand-shake" with other
ARTS™ -equipped radios. An audible "Beep" advises if an "Out of Range" condition exists, so the dispatcher can instruct the portable user to move to a better location.
TX/RX BATTERY SAVER CIRCUIT
To conserve battery capacity, both Transmit and Receive Battery Saver functions may be engaged on the VX-210A. On Receive, the radio is set to a "sleep" mode, in which it periodically checks for channel activity. On Transmit, the power level is reduced if the incoming (received) signal strength is very high, indicating that only short-distance communication is required.
The channel and feature configurations are easily programmed in minutes by the dealer, using the optional CT-42A Programming Cable and
CE45 Programming Software.
RADIO TO RADIO CLONE FEATURE
For quick programming of VX-210A radios for fleet use, the "Clone" feature allows copying of all channel and other configuration data from one
VX-210A to another, using the optional CT-27 Cloning Cable.
500 mW AUDIO OUTPUT
Ideal for reception in noisy environments, the VX-210A's high-powered audio is coupled to a large internal speaker, assuring solid copy throughout difficult construction site or field
VOICE INVERSION ENCRYPTION AVAILABLE
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.
SUPER RUGGED CONSTRUCTION
The VX-210A utilizes a high-impact plastic case, designed for years of use under difficult conditions. Its controls, switches, and antenna are all ruggedized to stand up to real-world operating environments.
