Broadcast Electronics is offering an FXi digital exciter for FM, FM+HD or HD Radio-only broadcasts.
The FXi 60/250esp exciter features direct-to-channel FM carrier generation, digital adaptive correction, dual RF outputs for redundancy and Ethernet IP control.
Available in 60 W and 250 W versions, it comes standard in BE’s FMi and FMi HD Radio transmitter lines, and as an upgrade option for its FM T, C and S Series transmitters.
ESP digital adaptive correction corrects linear and nonlinear distortions for the transmission system, providing adaptive correction for FM + HD and HD Radio; and corrects for group delay in a multi-station, combined antenna application.
With dual RF outputs, one exciter can drive two transmitters, a separate HD-R transmitter and an FM transmitter, or a backup and main transmitter. The FXi 60/250esp also offers dual AES/EBU inputs with “True Silence Sense” for primary and backup audio inputs
Additional functions include RDS, stereo generator and composite clipper; high-resolution spectrum display of transmitter system, providing RF mask of the FM-only and/or HD Radio signals; and full booster synchronous operation, with master/slave GPS for locking pilot and carrier synchronization.
