Thanks to the encoding technology, two way radio models like the Vertex VX261 are perfect in this situation, because they are designed to work seamlessly with a wide range of different handsets.
Flexible and Versatile
The reason why all two way radios are not automatically compatible is that most use encryption technology. This is a useful security measure protecting against people listening in to conversations uninvited. But because different manufacturers encrypt radio signals in different ways, different radios often cannot interpret signals from another manufacturer’s handset.
However, the Vertex VX261 comes with FleetSync®, MDC1200®, 2-tone and 5-tone encoding, meaning it can encode a wide range of encrypted signals. This is what makes it interoperable with most other business class radios available, so it integrates easily with a mixed network.
The VX261 offers flexibility and versatility in other ways, too. It makes use of Vertex’s innovative Universal Battery System, which means it can be charged using a single charger base along with any other Vertex handset – again making it easy to slot into an existing fleet.
It can operate on both VHF and UHF frequencies, making the VX261 adaptable for use indoors and outdoors. With a compact and lightweight design, and with a voice activated mode (VOX) for hands free operation, it is perfect for light industrial, warehousing, logistics and construction use where operatives are likely to be on the move working in different environments.
Another aspect of the Vertex VX261 which makes it well suited to use in industrial workplaces is the range of high standard safety features it boasts. The Emergency Alert feature allows users to programme the handset to broadcast an SOS at the touch of a button, while Lone Worker requires users to check back in to the network at fixed time intervals. Perfect for workers operating away from their colleagues, the radio will issue an emergency alert if the user does not check in within the allotted time.
Performance and Value
The Vertex VX261 focuses on offering high quality performance in the core radio features you need for general industrial use. The non-display handset is designed to be functional and easy to use, providing ready access to the features you need without having to navigate through dozens of options.
Boasting high performance audio output, the VX261 offers excellent call quality, ensuring callers can be heard clearly in all situations. Overall, it is a reliable, efficient two way radio handset which offers superb value for the flexibility and performance quality it offers.
