Compact and Easy to Carry
A radio that won’t get in the way, the VX-231 is compact and lightweight whitout sacrificing the performance and reach needed on the job.
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.
Battery Power Options For Every Budget
Designed to use powerful Li-Ion and Ni-MH battery technology with three options providing up to 9 hours to 16.5 hours of operation with the battery saver enabled.
More Scanning Options
Get 4 scanning options for convenience and flexibility in the way you need your radios to perform. Includes: Priority, Dual Watch, Follow Me and Talk Around scan.
Exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTS™)
Designed to inform the user when out of communication range with another ARTS™-equipped station. If out of range more than 2 minutes, the radio senses no signal and beeps to alert the user. The base station can then alert the field unit to move back into range. A great solution to keep your workers coordinated.
