This 30W transmitter is a still a worldwide favourite which has been on the market since 1999, it's reliable, it's durable and long lasting, even after 20 years there are various clients in the world still using this model for their community stations. This power level is suitable for a small town.
The output transistor can handle any amount of reflected power comfortably with a a rating of 45 watts on a more than sufficient large heatsink for cooling
The enclosure is made in strong 16 gauge steel, powder coated and baked in satin black. This leaves a tough, durable surface that will never rot or corrode and be cleaned to shine for decades. The front panel is 19 inch across and 2U (3.5 inch) high with a depth of 12 inches, so it will fit with ease into a standard rack. It is very strong and difficult to damage even under extreme handling.
If you are qualified or understand broadcast radio specifications and parameters you can set the frequency and deviation yourself. This is easily done by flipping over the unit and adjusting the little dip switches on the underside panel. More information on this in the User Manual, you can find a link to this below.
The stereo version with audio processing and limiting is available or the straight raw composite MPX version. If you're not sure which version you need, then it's a high probability that need the stereo version with audio processing and limiting. In any case the stereo version has the option of MPX input, it can be used for both. If you wish to connect the unit to external processing such as Optimod, Inovonics, Breakaway, StereoTool etc you should use the MPX version More Information HERE.
STEREO VERSION WITH AUDIO PROCESSING
MPX / COMPOSITE INPUT (NO PROCESSING)
This transmitter is available, for a small extra cost as SUPER SILENT. What is SUPER SILENT? it means it's as quiet as a mouse and can use it in a live mic studio without background noise. Check the video demonstration. If you want SUPER SILENT option, ADD TO CART here.
On delivery the equipment is ready to plug in and use with any suitable 50 ohm antenna system such as our:
4.8dBi 2 DIPOLES
7.8dBi 4 DIPOLES
10.8dBi 8 DIPOLES
4.8dBi 5/8 ANTENNA
-0.8dBi CIRC. DIPOLE
Our system package the 30W EIRP system includes this transmitter with a dipole antenna and very low loss LMR400 cable to give you a full system that will comply with the regulations of the European Union and most other countries in the world.
The stereo version with audio processing and limiting meets all the regulatory standards required out of the box and pre configured. In fact if you send us a copy of your permit and it's conditions, we will set it up exactly to the specification. This equipment complies with EU/CE harmonised standards and FCC technical requirements for FM broadcasting. More information HERE
