Line Filters for Noise Reduction

Large Channel Capacity For Greater Reach
The VX-5500 provides convenient communications planning with its 250 channel capacity and the ability to program up to 250 memory groups with no limit on the number of channels in each group.

Built For Durability
The one-piece die-cast enclosure for the VX-5500 doubles as its chassis, yielding extreme strength for resistance against shock and vibration and avoids over-heating.

Multi-Configuration 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 involving federal, state and local government operations.

When Safety Counts
As with all Vertex Standard mobile radios, the VX-5500 Series comes standard with 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.  The VX-5500 also has an internal emergency microphone that can transmit could the regular microphone become damaged or unusable.

Long Full Sounding Audio
Audio companding ensures full-sounding audio for narrow band channel applicaitons.  The VX-5500 also has 5W high-powered audio output for crisp audio that helps you hear in noisy environments. Plus use the optional 10W rear external speaker for enhanced clarity.

Exclusive Auto-Range Transpond Systems - ARTS
Only Vertex Standard radios are designed to inform you when you and another ARTS equipped station are within communication range.  If out of range for more than 2 minutes, your radio senses no signal has been received and beeps to alert you. The base station can then alert the field unit to move back in range.  A great solution to keep your workers coordinated.
