eVerge Low Cost Digital Display Radio

Vertex Standard announced a new low cost DMR digital radio earlier this year with a display, Micro-USB charger, and 12 hour battery life. The UHF 403-470 MHz model in a black case has been released this month. The yellow case will start shipping in Q4.

Meets IP67 Submersible Rating With Analog/Digital Modes

DMR Display IP67 RadioIn addition to the 8-character alphanumeric display, the IP67 EVX-S24 is built to withstand 30 minutes under 3 feet of water. Up to 256 analog and digital channels can be programmed in the radio simultaneously.

The radio transmits 3 watts in digital mode and 2 watts in analog. It is compatible with any brand analog radio and other DMR digital radios.

The radio uses the FNB-V142LI 2300 mAh “cell phone” size battery making it one of the lightest radios at 7.6 oz. The radio is smaller with dimensions of 3.58 x 2.17 x 1.24 inches.

EVX-S24 Audio Accessories Require 3.5mm Threaded Plug

The EVX-S24 uses a 3.5mm threaded audio connector and new belt clip that are different from other Vertex radios. The programming software is new too and requires a CB000262A01 Micro USB cable. Our first impressions are this radio is feature rich at an entry-level price point. Schools, hotels, and now construction companies can migrate to a digital display radio for their on-site communications for under $300 per radio.

The standard EVX-S24 radio package includes the radio, battery, MicroUSB charger and cradle, stubby antenna, belt clip, and 3 year radio warranty.
