Digital Alert Systems has announced that its DASDEC line of EAS equipment support DM Engineering Multi-Station Relay Adapter (shown) and Multi-Station Relay Expander switcher products.
A release said, “These products are connected via a serial cable then simply configured from the DASDEC’s user interface, eliminating the need to completely rewire or replace the switching hardware when upgrading to DASDEC, saving a station time and money.”
It added, “A DASDEC system using DAS MultiStation software to cover more than one program usually requires additional audio switching to operate effectively. The addition of the MSRA or MSRE product to this configuration makes it possible for a single DASDEC system to provide Emergency Alert System (EAS) information to more program streams, and do so with minimal wiring and — because the MSRA includes a built-in audio distribution amp …”
Digital Alert Systems Vice President of Business Development Bill Robertson explained, “DM Engineering’s MSRA and MSRE products have seen broad adoption among a number of stations. Having an interface that works with them ensures that existing DASDEC customers looking for a cost-effective way to add EAS/CAP coverage on more streams can easily add the DM Engineering products to solve their stations’ switching needs. At the same time, stations that already have MSRA products can continue to use them and simply swap their old EAS devices for a fully integrated DASDEC system.”
