Industrial Grade Radio For Every Day Communications

The VX-160 is designed with a die-cast chassis that provides a solid, rugged foundation to survive real-world industrial use. Includes the fundamental features needed for users to keep in contact while remaining focused on the job at hand.

Paging and DTMF ANI Built-In

The VX-160 provides dual 2-tone decode that can be used for two individual pager calls or for a combination of Individual and Group calling

High-Speed Scanning Capability

Get unmatched flexibility in scanning features for the price. In addition to basic scan, you also get Priority, Dual Watch and Follow-me scan included.

Solid Audio Output

Designed with 500 mW audio output makes the VX-160 ideal for noisy environments. The high-powered audio is coupled with a large internal speaker, assuring loud and clear audio.

Maximize Battery Life

The VX-160 includes RX/TX (receive and transmit) battery saver capability. During receive, the radio will put itself into saver mode while periodically checking for channel activity. During transmit, the VX-160 will automatically reduce power when the incoming signal is very strong.

Exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System – 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.
