Reliable in operation, and
flexible in setup options, the VXR-9000 is a high-tech 50 W/100 W* FM
Repeater designed for advanced commercial applications. Its slim-line design
is crafted for easy installation in a standard 19-inch rack mount, and all
programming parameters may be accomplished by the Dealer in minutes using a
personal computer *100 W w/optional VPA-9000H and Vertex Standard's
50 W RF
POWER/AVAILABLE 100 W VERSION (Optional)
The VXR-9000 provides 50 Watts of clean, reliable power output in
its standard configuration. For applications requiring extended range, the
optional VPA-9000H Power Amplifier increases the transmitter's power to 100
The VXR-9000 is crafted to survive in the most difficult RF environments.
Outstanding selectivity, intermodulation rejection, and spurious and image
rejection performance ensure reliable service during peak spectrum
The VXR-9000's versatile configuration capability permits inclusion of
narrow-band, compandered channels among wide-band, non-compandered channels.
Should DC power fail at the repeater site, the VXR-9000 will automatically
revert to a backup DC power source, if available. Under emergency DC power,
the repeater will transmit an alert message, to alert the communications
supervisor that the DC power situation requires immediate attention at the
The large-diameter cooling fan (3+ inches) is thermostatically controlled,
ensuring a stable temperature environment for the VXR-9000. Fan operation
may be programmed via software (Off, Continuous, or Temperature-Controlled),
and a "Malfunction" alarm is provided.
For easy integration into existing repeater sites, the VXR-9000 is shipped
ready for mounting in a standard 19" rack.
The VXR-9000 may be dealer-programmed with up to 32 channels over a wide
frequency range, and may be operated either in a "Repeater" or "Base
Station" mode, depending on your application.
Over twenty different functions are available for selection and assignment
to any of the six dual-function programmable keys on the front panel of the
VXR-9000. These functions include Channel Up/Down, High/Low Power,
Repeater/Base mode, Encryption On/Off, Transmit/Receive, Panel Lights
On/Off, and many more.
For convenient interfacing to external controllers or other accessories, the
rear-panel DSUB 25-Pin Accessory Jack provides access to important repeater
circuitry without the need for a specialized connector.
Enter date, subject, and notes such as programming or service memos, for
recall at any time in the future.
The VXR-9000 may be set up for either rolling code or inversion-type
encryption (optional module required). The
security required by your customer is available for easy installation.
During certain operating events (such as Startup, switch from main DC to
backup DC, etc.) the VXR-9000 may be programmed to undertake an automatic
sequence of commands, so it can be configured for the particular event. For
example, if DC fails and the repeater switches to emergency DC, the repeater
can be set up to switch to Low Power, send a CW ID advising of the DC power
situation, and other auto-command sequences, as well.
TWO-TONE DECODE STARTUP
The VXR-9000 may be booted up using two-tone commands. Four popular two-tone
formats are supported, and the precise frequencies of each of the two tones
may be manually adjusted from 100 Hz to 5 kHz, in 0.1 Hz steps.
