P332 RDS Encoder

 

Overview

The P332 RDS Encoder is the highest model in our offer. It is especially developed for regional and national stations but can suit for other stations as well. Depending on technical requirements, it may be used as an economical alternative to industry standard RDS encoders. Fully digital concept and uniquely effective design ensures high reliability, excellent signal characteristics and gives the user many advanced features while maintaining low acquisition costs. The encoder includes RS-232 port for direct connection to a serial data source, e.g. satellite receiver. Built-in Ethernet controller supports multiple TCP/UPD ports, internet functions and remote monitoring. 

 

Features:

  • Fully dynamic FM broadcast RDS encoder with up to four independent communication ports
  • Optically isolated RS-232 port
  • Ethernet connectivity
  • Supports internet functions and remote monitoring
  • Control interface based on ASCII commands and UECP protocol on all ports
  • Excellent compatibility with broadcast automation systems
  • Built-in weekly scheduling
  • Text features include dynamic PS, parsing, scrolling, fixed messages, scheduling and reading from HTTP
  • Supports control from external PHP/ASP scripts
  • Control software includes powerful Windows GUI application
  • External TA and Program set switch, bypass relay, switchable MPX loopthrough mode (Loop/Side)
  • Internal real-time clock incl. update from internet
  • Easy and fast set-up
  • Firmware updates are free
