Product Detail

Flexible Configurations and Durability for Demanding Applications

  • 250 Channels and 250 Groups
  • 70 Watts Low Band / 50 Watts VHF / 45 Watts UHF
  • Low Band: 29.7 – 37 MHz (A); 37 – 50 MHz (B)
  • VHF: 148 – 174 MHz
  • UHF: 450 – 490 MHz
  • 7 Programmable Backlit Keys
  • 8-Character Alphanumeric Display

Built for Durability

The one-piece die-cast enclosure doubles as its chassis, yielding extreme strength for resistance against shock and vibration and avoids over-heating.

Multi-Configurations For Dual-Band Capability

One VX-5500 Control Head and two RF Decks on different bands may be networked for dual-band operation. Low Band, VHF or UHF radios may be combined to meet complex communications requirements for multi-agency operations.

When Safety Counts

As with all Vertex Standard mobile radios, the VX-5500 has built-in Emergency alert for enhanced driver safety. A panic button can be triggered by the front panel button to alert the dispatcher when problems arise.

In addition, the VX-5500 features an internal emergency microphone on the front panel so the driver can continue to communicate with dispatch should the regular microphone become unusable.

Horn alert capability enables base station operator to issue a 2-Tone, 5-Tone or DTMF signal remotely to activate the car\’s horn to go off as an additional emergency alert to draw attention to the vehicle.

Exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTS)

Designed to inform the user when out of communication range with another ARTS-equipped station. If out of range more than 2 minutes, the radio senses no signal and beeps to alert the user. The base station can then alert the field unit to move back into range. A great solution to keep your workers coordinated.
