Vertex VX-459: Safety and Durability Combined

Vertex VX-459

The Vertex VX-459 is an emergency-ready, industrial grade, portable analog radio with multiple features including an 8-character alphanumeric display, 9 custom-programmable keys and incredible safety features. Like all Vertex Standard radios, the VX-459 includes built-in safety features such as Emergency mode, Lone Worker alerts, and an optional Man Down function.

With just a press of a button, the VX-459 will automatically switch to a designated channel and the Emergency notification will send out an alert for help. The Lone Worker feature is a built-in timer that requires you to reset within a predetermined interval of time. When the timer is not reset, the radio will automatically switch to Emergency mode and call for help. The optional Man Down function (with DVS-9 unit) uses a 3-axis sensor to monitor and alert for help if you fall on the job.
