EVX-531 DMR Digital Portable Radio

In January 2018, Motorola significantly reduced Vertex two-way radios products and services, phasing out many popular Vertex handheld models.

As an alternative, we recommend the RCA RDR3500 radio that replaces the EVX-531.


The EVX-531 can operate in both Digital and Analog modes and can be used with any existing analog two-way radio. When using the EVX-531 in Digital mode, you can expect up to 40% better battery life than typical analog mode. This is a result of the Time-Division Multiple Access (TDMA) protocol which reduces overall battery consumption per call. The EVX-531 also meets international standard IP 57 for dust and water protection where fresh water does not harm the radio when submersed to 3 feet for up to 30 minutes.

These professional radios offer a great value and provide a high level of performance and reliability. You can afford to enhance your communications with the digital performance of the EVX-531. These radios are compact and precision-engineered to deliver value without sacrificing quality - giving you more capabilities and the flexibility you need to communicate at your absolute best!

Conversion Made Easy with Analog Integration

eVerge radios operate in both analog and digital modes and can be used with any existing analog two-way radios.

Better Radio Call Quality

Digital eliminates noise and static from voice transmit to only deliver the intended voice message crisply and clearly. eVerge digital radios feature the AMBE+2™ vocoder for enhanced voice quality.

Better Battery Life

Using eVerge radios in digital mode can operate up to 40% longer than typical analog mode as a result of the TDMA protocol and reduces overall battery consumption in transmit mode.

Better Message Control and Privacy

Control who you call and who gets your message in digital mode. eVerge digital radios each have a unique ID enabling users to select who they need to call or send a text message without including others.

Better Coverage and Connection Monitoring with ARTS II™

eVerge delivers ultra-clear audio right up to the edge of the transmit range. And, with Vertex Standard's exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTS II), you will always know your connection status when you are in or out of range with another ARTS II-equipped radio.

Direct Mode

Direct Mode enables you to have to communication paths on a single frequency effectively doubling your call capacity without the need of a repeater.

Site Search

Move between multiple sites seamlessly by using the Site Search functionality on your EVX-530 series radio. Manually or automatically initiate Site Search to identify the signal of the closest site with the strongest signal strength. The EVX-530 portable will dynamically change its preprogrammed home site to the site with the strongest signal in range. Great for operations with multiple locations or multiple floor buildings.

Transmit Interrupt

When seconds matter, transmit interrupt allows an operator to halt or "interrupt" any current transmission, in favor of a priority message. Transmit interrupt functionality ensures your critical messages will connect.

Enhanced Display

The EVX series boasts a robust dot matrix display, allowing up to sixteen characters per screen and as many as forty overall. In addition, the display is functional for use in six different languages, including English, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese and Turkish.

Submersible and Weatherproof

eVerge EVX-530 Series meets international standard IP 57 for dust and water protection where fresh water does not harm the radio when submersed to 3 feet for up to 30 minutes.

Intrinsically Safe Option

Intrinsically safe models are SGS certified to the requirements of ANSI/UL913 5th Edition for use in Class I, II, III, Division 1; Groups C,D,E,F,G; Temp T3C hazardous locations.

Option Board Expandable for Additional Applications
