MIL-STD 810 C/D/EBuilt to meet or
exceed the requirements of the U.S. MIL-STD 810 C/D/E standards, the
VX-160 is designed to survive under difficult operating conditions of
shock, vibration, and driving rain. Cost-performance begins with
durability, and the Mil-Spec toughness of the VX-160 is your guarantee of
its design quality.
SUPER RUGGED CONSTRUCTIONHoused inside a
high-impact case, the diecast chassis of the VX-160 provides a solid,
rugged foundation for the VX-160s circuitry. Built to survive in the real
world of factory, construction site, or fleet use, the VX-160 will provide
many years of reliable communications.
CTCSS / DCS ENCODE + DECODEHigh-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
DTMF ANI DECODEThe VX-160 includes
a DTMF Automatic Number Identifier (ANI) circuit, which will respond to an
incoming ANI burst for selective paging of an individual portable.
VERSATILE SCANNING FEATURESThe high-speed
scanning capability of the VX-160 includes All-Channel scanning, plus
Dual Watch and Priority Channel capability. And with Follow-Me scanning,
a designated channel may be watched during scanning of other channels.
DUAL 2-TONE DECODEThis built in
feature allows you to decode up to two, 2-tone pairs per channel. These
can be used for two individual pager calls, or one for Individual and one
for Group call.
efficient channel management, the VX-160 provides Busy Channel Lock-Out (BCLO)
and Busy Tone Lock-Out (BTLO) features. What's more, the transmitters
Time-Out Timer (TOT) function prevents a stuck microphone condition from
jamming a channel for an extended period of time.
Range Transponding System)
Included in the
VX-160 is Vertex Standards exclusive ARTS" feature, which can be
critically important in search-and-rescue applications. ARTS" provides a
hand-shake with other ARTS"- equipped transceivers, and the display
indicates if an Out of Range condition exists. The base station can then
alert the field unit to move to a better location.
TX/RX BATTERY SAVER CIRCUITTo maximize battery
life, the VX-160 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.
PC PROGRAMMINGThe channel and
feature configurations are easily programmed in minutes by the dealer,
using the optional CT-42A Programming Cable and CE44 Programming Software.
RADIO TO RADIO CLONE FEATUREFor quick
programming of VX-160 radios for fleet use, the Clone feature allows
copying of all channel and other configuration data from one VX-160 to
another, using the optional CT-27 Cloning Cable.
Ideal for reception
in noisy environments, the VX-160s high�powered audio is coupled to a
large internal speaker, assuring solid copy throughout difficult
construction site or field operations.
