VX-160E/180E SERIES
SUPER RUGGED CONSTRUCTION
BCLO, BTLO, AND TOT
Housed inside a high-impact case, the diecast chassis of the VX-180E
provides a solid, rugged foundation for the VX-160E/180E’s circuitry. Built to
withstand the harse world of the factory floor, construction site or fleet user,
the VX-180E will provide many years of reliable communications.
To facilitate efficient channel management, the VX-160E/180E provides Busy
Channel Lock-Out (BCLO) and Busy Tone Lock-Out (BTLO) features. What’s
more, the transmitter’s Time-Out Timer (TOT) function prevents a "stuck
microphone" condition from jamming a channel for an extended period of time.
8-CHARACTER ALPHANUMERIC DISPLAY (VX-180E)
TX/RX BATTERY SAVER CIRCUIT
Providing indication of either the channel number or an
Alphanumeric Channel Label of up to 8 characters, the LCD
display also provides convenient operation function icons
to provide instant recognition of radio status.
To maximize battery life, the VX-160E/180E includes both transmit- and
receive-mode battery savers. On transmit, the portable will reduce power
when the incoming signal is very strong. On receive, the radio will put itself
into a pulsing "sleep" mode, periodically checking for channel activity.
3 PROGRAMMABLE OPERATING FUNCTION KEYS
PC PROGRAMMING
The VX-180E radio functions and features can be
assigned to the 3 front panel programable keys.
Functions include Keypad lock, Channel change,
TX Power, Scan functions, Selective Call/Reset.
RADIO TO RADIO CLONE FEATURE
The channel and feature configurations are easily programmed in minutes
by the dealer, using the optional Programming Cable and Programming
Software.
CTCSS / DCS ENCODE + DECODE
High-performance Encoder/Decoder circuits for both CTCSS and Digital Code
Squelch are provided, for access to tone/code controlled systems. DCS is ideal for
crowded RF environments, providing superior immunity from false opening of squelch.
For quick programming of VX-160/180E radios for fleet use, the "Clone"
feature allows copying of all channel and other configuration data from one
VX-160E/180E to another, using the optional Cloning Cable.
500 mW AUDIO OUTPUT
The VX-160E/180E includes an Automatic Number Identifier circuit, which will
respond to an incoming ANI burst for selective paging of an individual portable.
Ideal for reception in noisy environments, the VX-160E/180E’s high-powered
audio is coupled to a large internal speaker, assuring solid copy throughout
difficult construction site or field operations.
5-TONE ENCODE/DECODE
MIL-STD 810 C/D/E
AUTOMATIC NUMBER IDENTIFIER (ANI)
The VX-160E/180E also has a 5 Tone Encoder and Decoder built-in. The
radio can respond to an individual or group call 5 tone sequence, and can
generate 5 Tone calling sequences for individual or group call facilities.
VERSATILE SCANNING FEATURES
The high-speed scanning capabilities of the VX-160E/180E with its all channel,
dual watch, Priority channel, Last Busy and "Follow me" scanning options
ensures that the VX-160E/180E can meet the most stringent user needs.
Built to meet or exceed the requirements of the U.S. MIL-STD 810 C/D/E
standard. the VX-160E/180E is designed to
survive under difficult operating conditions
of shock, vibration, and driving rain. Costperformance begins with durability, and
the Mil-Spec toughness of the VX-180E is
