PTEK‘s new Smart series of transmitters debuted at the show.
Initially the series will consist of the 3.5 kW, 5 kW and 10 kW outputs, all of which have hot-pluggable power amps and switching power supply modules. They can operate in FM analog, FM+HD hybrid or HD Radio-only mode.
The rackmountable Smart series has a small footprint. With its flexibility the Smart series also futureproofs a broadcaster’s needs, PTEK says, with upgradeable HD Radio options should they choose to do so down the road.
PA modules are identical and interchangeable among all power levels in the Smart Series. Useful features include an onboard stereo generator, onboard PTEK FM300ES exciter, IP interface for remote monitoring and operation, LED status indication for at-a-glance operational monitoring and a cooling system that includes front-to-back cooling fans with a removable filter.
PTEK products are designed and manufactured in the United States.
