Nautel is expanding the XR Series family, introducing XR3 and XR6 AM transmitters, which can be used for HD Radio or Digital Radio Mondiale operation.
The move extends the platform design that includes the XR12, XR25 and XR50.
Base units for the XR3 and XR6 include dual exciter sections that have an auto transfer function in the event of a low-level circuit malfunction. A second power module can be added with an auto transfer function in case of a high-level problem. Nautel says the modules provide the function of a full main/standby transmitter system for about half the normal cost and space requirements.
The new models offer extra redundant modules for continuous broadcast, 128 event logs to facilitate troubleshooting and power programmers that allow for a year of night time automatic power selections.
Nautel also will hold a Nautel Users’ Group (NUG) Session Wednesday, Sept. 20, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Steuben Room of the Hilton Anatole Hotel, with complimentary lunch and a roundtable discussion. Advance registration is required; e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
