Durable On-the-Job Responsiveness
The industrial grade VX-450 Series maximizes worker uptime
with expanded safety applications and convenient built-in
features designed for heavy duty use.
Monitor Worker Safety
As with all Vertex Standard radios, the VX-450 series includes built-in
Emergency and Lone Worker alerts. Emergency notification is user-initiated
with a press of a button for the radio to switch to a designated channel and send
an alert for help. Lone Worker is a built-in timer that requires the user to reset
at a predetermined interval. If not reset, the radio automatically switches to
Emergency mode to alert help.
When constant contact is required at all times, Vertex Standard’s exclusive
Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTS™) is included to inform the user that
other ARTS™- equipped radios are within communication range.
The optional Man Down function (with DVS-9 unit) is programmable to monitor
a variety of worker timed safety scenarios vertically and horizontally as well as
worker degree of motion. Adjusting the settings of the 3-axis sensor adapts the
radio to each distinct work environment to monitor movement.
Intrinsically Safe Option for Hazardous Locations
Intrinsically safe models are SGS certified to the requirements of ANSI/UL913
5th Edition for use in Class I, II, III, Division 1; Groups C,D,E,F,G; Temp T3C
hazardous locations.
Solid Build for Extreme Environments
Withstands job site abuse meeting military standards for ruggedness and meets
the IP 57 ingress protection standard where water does not harm the radio
when submersed to a depth of 3 feet for up to 30 minutes.

Storage unit.
Built-in Selective Signaling Modes for Greater Flexibility
Includes MDC-1200 ® encode/decode along with both 2-tone and 5-tone encode/
decode providing selective radio calling and efficiency in supporting a variety of
discreet communications needs.
Large Group Communications Made Easy to Manage
Both the VX-459 and VX-454 radios have a massive 512-channel capacity and
32 groups to easily manage a variety of calls at the most complex job site or
plant operation. The VX-459 also includes Direct Channel Entry to punch in the
