VX-4100/VX-4200
SERIES
Public Safety applications require three essential elements: reliability,
ruggedness, and performance versatility. These three elements are found
in the VX-4100 (8-Channel) and VX-4200 (501-Channel) series of FM Mobiles
from Vertex Standard. New interoperability Receiver (Option), wide programmable
frequency coverage, high power output (50 Watts VHF/45 Watts UHF), leadingedge signaling capability, and a 12-character alpha-numeric display are just
a few of the many reasons why the VX-4100 and VX-4200 are the best
choice for the most demanding Public Safety environments.

8 Channels VHF/UHF Mobile Radios
3 PROGRAMMABLE FRONT PANEL KEYS
The programmable keys allow for customizing the radio
to match your operating requirements. Programmable
keys include (but are not limited to): Monitor, Home
Channel, Direct Access (channel #), External Accessory
Control, Scan, and many more. Configure the radio for
your needs, and enjoy the operating efficiency without
the complication of functions you don’t need.

features you need, and leave out the ones you don’t.
DIRECT CHANNEL ACCESS
HIGH CONTRAST LCD DISPLAY
The high contrast LCD allows for 12-character
alphanumeric channel tags, enough characters to
name the channel while still providing large character
size. Besides the Channel and Group name, the
display tells you Scan status, Power level, Priority Scan
status, Voice Message (received) status, plus Channel
and Group numbers in a sub display.
Despite the 501-channel capacity of the VX-4200, we
know you always have one or two channels that are
your primary operating slots. So we provide for
assignment of the programmable keys as (up to) four
Direct Channel Access keys, so you can jump to an
often-used channel instantly, even if it’s in a different
memory group.
VERSATILITY
INTEROPERABIlLITY RECEIVER (OPTION)
POPULAR 2-TONE ENCODE AND DECODE FUNCTIONS
VX-4100/4200 allows you to receive vital communications

encode tones. DTMF paging and identification is also
built-in to allow selective paging and to see who is calling you.
BUILT-IN 5-TONE SIGNALLING
The 5-Tone signaling feature gives you many features
found on much higher priced competitors. Features such
as remote Stun, Kill, Revive. Remote listen (remote TX), 100
unique status messages, ANI Tag display, and many more.
REMOTE STUN/KILL/REVIVE
Multi Band Receiver Unit: SRX-1 for UHF, SRX-2 for VHF
Need to disable a radio in the field? No problem. The
VX-4100/4200 gives you the ability to Stun, Kill, and
Revive over the air in the 5-Tone signalling. Another built-in
feature you can use to your system’s advantage.
OPTIONAL VOICE STORAGE
VERSITILE SCANNING FEATURES
With the optional DVS-5 Voice Storage unit installed,
you can hear page transmissions while away from the
vehicle. When activated (programmable softkey), the
voice storage unit waits for a page, then begins
recording. Upon return, you will see the "Message Icon"
alerting you of the page and message.
The VX-4100 provide scan of all or some of the eight channels
programmed. Also, if a channel is flagged as Priority, that
channel is monitored even during non-priority calls. Besides
the normal Scan and Priority Scan modes, the VX-4200 adds
Group Scan. You can scan all Groups or selected Groups.
PROGRAMMABLE MINIMUM VOLUME
The Auto-Range Transponder System, a Vertex Standard
exclusive, alerts the operator when another ARTS™
equipped station (for example, a hand-held unit)
moves out of communication range. You can then
advise the other user to move to a better location.
Another feature to ensure all calls are heard. The radio can
be programmed for a minim volume level. If the radio is
on, the minimum volume level will ensure the audio of a
call will be heard.
HIGH PERFORMANCE
WIDE BANDWIDTH
For communicating with other agencies, companies, or
even within your own communications system, the wide
bandwidth of this radio will let you operate anywhere
within the 40 MHz (VHF) or 70 / 62 MHz (UHF) band.
WIDE / NARROW (12.5 / 20 / 25 kHz PER CHANNEL)
The VX-4100/VX-4200 may be programmed with Wide or
Narrow operating bandwidths, channel by channel, to
conform to your local channel environment. Ideal for multijurisdiction operations.
AUDIO COMPANDING
For narrow-band channel applications, the built-in Audio
Companding system compresses the voice waveform
during transmission, and expands it during reception,
allowing full-sounding audio despite the restricted
transmission bandwidth.
LOUD AUDIO OUTPUT FRONT SPEAKER
The VX-4100/VX-4200’s high-powered audio (2 Watts )
is coupled to a large, front-facing speaker, producing
high-quality, crisp audio that
will punch through even in the
noisy environments experienced
by public safety officers.
ARTS™ (AUTO RANGE TRANSPONDER SYSTEM)
SECURITY
EMERGENCY MODE
When the Emergency feature is activated, the radio
will switch to an emergency channel and transmit with
live mic audio through a front panel
mounted microphone. Among the
many programmable features of the
emergency mode are: Live TX time,
RX Live time, RX dead time, and more.
OPTIONAL VOICE ENCRYPTION MODULES
With options for simple inversion or rolling code, we have
the right encryption level to fit your requirements and budget.
DURABLE CONSTRUCTION
BUILT TOUGH, BUILT TO LAST
Rugged design to meet MIL-STD 810 C/D/E will allow
this radio to last. The
Ultra-rugged design enables
this mobile to pass a torrent
of MIL-STD tests listed in this
brochure. The extraordinary
design and construction
ensures many years of
reliable service, even in high
vibration, dusty or extreme
temperature environments.
OTHER FEATURES
D-SUB 15 PIN ACCESSORY CONNECTOR
The included D-Sub 15 pin connector on the rear panel
allows for access to Audio In, Audio Out, Ext PTT, RSSI,
and many more functions making this radio perfect for
third party interfaces.
TOT, BCLO, BTLO FEATURES
Among the most useful protection features of the VX-4100/4200
are the transmitter Time-Out Timer (TOT), Busy Channel
Lock-Out (BCLO), and Busy Tone Lock-Out (BTLO), to
ensure efficient network performance at all times.
RADIO TO RADIO CLONE FEATURE
For quick programming of VX-4100/4200 radios for an
emergency task force, the Clone feature allows copying
of all channel and other configuration data from one VX-4100/
4200 to another, using the optional CT-4 Cloning Cable.
