Durability Meets Maximum Responsiveness
The VX-450 series is specifically designed for heavy-duty industrial sectors where safety functions and built-in user-friendly
features are top priorities for worker uptime.
Durable on the job responsiveness
The industrial grade VX-450 Series maximises worker uptime with expanded safety applications and convenient
built-in features designed for heavy duty use.
Monitor Worker Safety
The VX-450 series, as with all the Vertex Standard radios, has four key features to ensure the safety of the user.
The user signals out an emergency notification with just a press of a button on the radio, which will then be switched to a designated channel
to send an alert for help.
Lone Worker Alert
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.
Vertex Standard's exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTSTM)
A function that keeps the user within communication range with other ARTS - equipped radios, so constant contact is always known.
Man Down Function (with DVS unit)
Programmed 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.
Resistance for Extreme Environments
The VX-450 Series water-resistant radios are built to submerse up to 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter and it has been tested to
meet military standards for ruggedness and the IP67 ingress protection standard.
Audio and Voice Detection Sensitivity Audio
Equipped with 700 mW audio output that's perfect for noisy work environments. Users can make us of the Channel Announcement function,
which loudly speaks the channel description to simplify changing channels when focused on other tasks simultaneously.
Equipped with Voice Activation (VOX) function and when used with the MH-81A4B headset, users are able to transmit voice
without pressing the Push To Talk button for hands-free operations.
Record and store up to 120 seconds of voice messages using the optional DVS-8 Voice Storage unit.
Manageable System for Large Group Communications
Both the VX-459 and VX-454 radios have a massive 512-channel capacity and 32 groups to easily manage a variety
of calls at the most complex job sites or plant operations. The VX-459 also includes Direct Channel Entry to punch in the
channel desired from the keypad for fast navigation.
All Vertex Standard radios are backed with an industry leading three-year warranty
