CB or commercial frequency modes
The VX-456 CB radio provides both CB and commercial frequency modes, allowing you to choose the best option for your usage. If you require private communications it is best to obtain a license through your Authorised Vertex Standard Channel Partner to use a commercial frequency. If this is not a requirement then the CB option is available straight out of the box.
Resistance for Extreme Environments
The VX-456 CB water, dust and drop resistant radios are built tough (IP57 ingress protection standard). This radio can be submersed in water for up to 30 minutes at a depth of one metre! It has also been tested to meet military standards for ruggedness.
Monitor Worker Safety
As with all Vertex Standard radios, the VX-456CB 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 mode 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 II (ARTS II™) is included to inform the user that other ARTS II – equipped radios are within communication range.
No two job sites are alike and 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.
Audio and Voice Detection Sensitivity Audio
Equipped with 700mW audio output it’s perfect for noisy work environments. Users can make use of the Channel Announcement function, which audibly tells you the channel description to simplify changing channels when focused on other tasks simultaneously.
Expanded, built-in signalling for flexibility
Includes MDC-1200® encode/decode along with DTMF, 2-tone and 5-tone encode/decode providing selective radio calling and efficiency in supporting a variety of discrete communications needs.
Manageable System for Large Group Communications
The VX-456 CB radio has a massive 512-channel capacity and 32 groups to easily manage a variety of calls at the most complex job sites or plant operations. It also includes Direct Channel Entry to punch in the channel desired from the keypad for fast navigation.
Vertex Standard’s exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTS™ and ARTS II™)
