The Vertex Standard Difference

Vertex Standard's eVerge mobile radio forms part of our DMR family of radios and provides a perfect option for you to
transition your fleet of mobile radios from analogue to digital.
Digital technology eliminates noise and static from voice transmit allowing for crisp and clear communication with the eVerge
DMR two-way radio. The eVerge mobile radios include emergency alert for enhanced driver safety when in the field.

Conversion Made Easy with Analogue Integration
eVerge radios operate in both analogue and digital modes and can be used with any existing analogue two-way radios.

Do Digital Right: Stay Compatible and Maximise Efficiency
eVerge digital radios operate using the TDMA protocol for spectrum and power efficiency and lower total equipment cost
compared to FDMA.

Better Radio Call Quality
Digital eliminates noise and static from voice transmit to only deliver the intended voice message crisply and clearly.
eVerge digital radios feature the AMBE+2 vocoder for enhanced voice quality.

Better Message Control and Privacy
Control who you call and who gets your message in digital mode. Digital radios each have a unique ID enabling users to select
who they need to call or send a text message without including others.

Better Coverage and Connection Monitoring with ARTS II
Get ultra-clear audio right up to the edge of the transmit range. And, with Vertex Standard's exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTS II),
you will always know when you are in or out of range with another ARTS II- equipped radio.

Worker Safety Features
As with all Vertex Standard mobile radios, eVerge mobile radios include Emergency alert for enhanced driver safety.
Operators can activate the Lone Worker function when leaving equipment or a vehicle temporarily. If a problem arises while away,
the radio switches to Emergency mode to alert help.

Option Board Expandable for Additional Applications
The EVX-5400 series is designed for future feature expansion and supporting third-party application development such as
location tracking with GPS, rolling code encryption, etc.

All Vertex Standard radios are backed with an industry leading three-year warranty
