Ecreso FM 10 kW transmitter

WorldCast Systems says that its new Ecreso FM 10 kW transmitter is based around a digital FM modulator that enables excellent audio purity and hosts a range of useful built-in features such as audio backup, RDS and stereo encoding and an FM limiter with MPX power control. However, it adds, it is the reliability, redundancy and overall efficiency of the new Ecreso FM 10 kW that will help it stand out from the competition.

The power amplifiers, power supplies and even the fan modules are hot-swappable and redundant. A passive six-way coupler, as well as built-in dummy loads, ensures that, should one of the six amplifiers suffer a fault, the transmitter can stay on-air indefinitely at 9 kW until the fault is rectified.

Efficient, self-monitoring power supplies and the new planar design contribute to an overall transmitter system efficiency of up to 76%, the highest available in today’s FM broadcast market, according to the company.

WorldCast Systems says it has designed a new architecture for the 10 kW system that ensures ease of access, ease of use and ease of maintenance. The Ecreso FM 10 kW can also be supplied with a warranty of up to 10 years for ultimate peace of mind, the company says.
