Digital Alert Systems Gets FCC Gear OK
Digital Alert Systems says it received FCC approval for certified
next-generation Common Alerting Protocol Emergency Alert System alerting
equipment. It says it was the first manufacturer to receive that approval.
DAS and sister
company Monroe Electronics said the commission certified the DASDEC-II and R189
One-Net series of EAS equipment as complying with updated Part 11 EAS rules.
The former are used in TV and radio; the latter are for cable TV head ends.
The company’s Ed
Czarnecki stated in the announcement, “By completing the required Class II
Permissive Change, accompanied by the Suppliers Declaration of Conformity
(SDoC) requirements well in advance of the June 30 deadline, we can assure
customers our equipment meets all the FCC’s requirements.”
The deadline for
radio stations and other EAS participants to have CAP-capable EAS gear in place
is the end of June.
