Alpha-numeric Display (14 Segments x 8 Digits)
The 8-digit Alpha-numeric display allows quick channel identification by
the user, and is easy to read from a wide range of viewing angles.
Sub-audible (CTCSS) 50-tone Encoder and Decoder circuits are built into every
For VX-2500, ensuring compatibility with modern repeater requirements.
applications requiring Digital Coded Squelch signaling, full-featured DCS
Encoder and Decoder circuits provide leading-edge protection from false
decoding. Any combination of CTCSS and DCS will be available on the
For applications where a mobile may be receiving calls from more than one
dispatcher on a particular channel, the VX-2500 includes a built-in Dual
Two-Tone Decoder circuit.
Automatic Number Identification (ANI) via an automatic DTMF Encoder is also
provided among the VX-2500�s versatile signaling capabilities.
DTMF Paging function is good for dispatch or network operations.
A wide range of set-up options are available during configuration of the
VX-2500, to ensure compatibility with the operating requirements of your
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
For applications requiring secure communications, the optional FVP-25
Paging/ Encryption Unit provides scrambling and descrambling functions.
When activated, the "Emergency" feature sends out the DTMF ANI, and cycles
between transmit and receive, to serve as an emergency beacon to alert the
dispatcher as to the need for immediate aid.
The Auto-Range Transponder System, a Vertex Standard exclusive, alerts the
operator TM -equipped station (for example, a hand-held unit) moves out of
when another ARTS communication range. You can then advise the other user to
move to a better location.
BCLO, BTLO Features
Among the most useful protection features of the VX-2500 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.
Custom assignment of important functions to front panel keys is available at
the time of programming, to provide the most ergonomically-friendly
transceiver available today. Programmable Alert Tones Among the useful
set-up options for the VX-2500 is the capability to customize the "Alert"
tones generated from the transceiver, for ease of recognition by the user.
The VX-2500�s circuitry is housed within a die-cast aluminum enclosure,
which doubles as a heat sink. This extraordinarily durable construction
ensures many years of reliable operation, even in high-vibration
(MIL 810 C/D/E)
The ultra-rugged design of the VX-2500 Series enables it to be fully
compliant with the exacting specifications of MIL 810 C, D, and E, pursuant
to the test procedures documented below.
