Exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTS™)

If out of range, your radio senses no signal has been received and beeps to alert you. A great solution to keep your workers coordinated.

Safety Features Not Sacrificed
As with all Vertex Standard portable radios, the VX-231 includes both Emergency and Lone Worker alert functions to help monitor user safety. The Emergency alert can be programmed to instantly notify help with a press of the button. The Lone Worker mode 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. Allows supervisors to monitor the safety status of radio users working alone in isolated areas.
