Since launching the A30 last year,
the company has added several features such as a DAB+ module and MPX
measurement options. Additionally, the device can now function as a backup rebroadcast
receiver and as a RDS-Data as well.
The A30 is designed to let operators configure system settings — parameters
like RF level, pilot signal, MPX power and deviation, RDS synchronization, TA
and PI — for each station individually. In addition, it offers various options
for FM/RDS and DAB+ monitoring.
For example, the system’s two integrated tuners can monitor two FM
stations simultaneously day and night, but the second tuner can monitor up to
30 broadcasting stations using scan mode. Moreover, the web interface for MPX
measurements allows technicians to control the MPX deviation according to the
requirements of regulation authorities.
The DAB+ module allows the monitoring of parameters like RF level, FIC
quality, audio level or image slideshow (SLS). If a value does not comply with
the pre-settings, an alarm can be forwarded via SNMP, email or relay to a
service center. Alarm activities are logged and stored with time stamp, type of
alert and the equivalent frequency.
says that the A30 can serve as a backup source and the ISD (Intelligent Silence
Detection), offering transmission security with its active and passive
“loop-through” feature that loops through incoming external audio/MPX signals
to its outputs via relays.
is able to measure the incoming external audio/MPX source and in the case of
signal degradation, switch the output source to an internal FM tuner.
