Rohde & Schwarz has introduced a line of compact FM transmitters featuring a range of capabilities.
The transmitters, the R&S SR8000 and R&S NR8200 series, “help to ensure the high quality of analog networks with the reliability of advanced digital transmitters.”
R&S NR8200 FM transmitters are available for transmit powers of 2.5 kW to 40 kW. Two single transmitters with up to 5 kW each can be accommodated in a 19-inch rack. The 30 kW transmitter can be mounted in only two racks.
Exciter standby, (n+1) standby, passive standby and active dual-output stage with manual or automatic switchover can be implemented for the R&S NR8200 line. Transmitters already in the network can be integrated in a (n+1) redundancy system.
The FM transmitters of the R&S SR8000 series are rated for output power between 100 W and 2.5 kW. All functions are integrated in a single transmitter and occupy a maximum of 8 RU. Single-frequency network operation is possible. Passive standby and (n+1) standby systems containing up to eight main transmitters are available as a standby system.
The transmitters are air-cooled. Transmitter and amplifier parameters required for diagnostics can be retrieved locally or remotely via standard (IP) protocol and standard software (Web browser, SNMP).
