Rohde & Schwarz says it will present its R&S SR8000 transmitter line for the FM low-power range from 100 watts to 1 kW.
The compact transmitters are air-cooled. They are based on the company’s platform concept, which provides a common platform for TV and sound broadcast transmitters of this series. They feature R&S SU800 digital exciters and are remote-monitored and remote-controlled via SNMP, Web interface and parallel remote-control interface.
The R&S SU800 exciter comes with an AES/EBU interface, which allows direct insertion of digital audio data. Analog impairments from the studio to the frequency modulator output can thus be prevented.
The exciter also provides test points to analyze the main parameters. For example, the MPX baseband signal, RF output signal, input signals, forward and reflected power, amplifier parameters and fan function can be measured and displayed.
The power amplifier of the R&S SR8000 series uses MOSFET technology.
The company says the R&S SR8000 transmitters complement its R&S NR8200 transmitter line and will be available in September.
