The new RDS Evo encoder is powered with the latest generation DSP, responds to the new operational needs of signal management for FM stations.
Inputs section MPX and RDS signals coming from outside.
The RDS Evo is also fully equipped with an RDS signal decoder; through this section it is possible to decode the data of an external RDS signal, decide which ones to keep and which to modify locally, and then regenerate the RDS data package to be supplied to the local FM transmitter. The RDS Decoder also allows the PI code contained in the external RDS signal to be monitored, if the PI code is different from the one programmed, it is possible to activate the exchange from the external MPX signal and the internally generated one.
The GPO port takes the status of the machine’s inputs to the outside, for a simple interface with the transmitters’s telemetry.
The machine can be controlled via ethernet thanks to the internal web server, this solution frees the user from installing PC software; in addition, the Web Server can be set as CLIENT, in case of insertion in a LAN network, or as a SERVER, if you want to directly connect a PC with an Ethernet network cable.
It is possible to activate a password that limits access to the machine, inhibiting the modification of the setup parameters to unauthorized personnel.
