The XE30 Exciter is an advanced, fully featured broadcast FM exciter that is also ideally suited for use as a low power stand alone transmitter.
The XE30 uses a unique ultra linear modulator to give superb sound reproduction with freedom from overshoots and artefacts. The modulator also features a precision TCXO for exceptional frequency stability.
The XE30 front panel LCD metering allows selection of output forward and reverse power, frequency, heatsink temperature and any optional baseband input module settings. Selected screen also shows any relating fault or condition (‘Low’, ‘High’, ‘Muted’, ‘Interlock’, ‘Phase Lock
Fail’, Fan Fail’ etc).
Also provided are: green/red pass/fail led indicators of system normal and CPU status plus a green/red/amber indicator of mute/interlock status. A front panel monitor point for RF output is provided. The rear panel includes a remote control/monitoring socket that allows carrier muting and status signalling to an external system. Additionally TCP/IP, (option /T) or RS232, (option /A) interfaces are available.
Variants of the XE30 are available with the choice of Universal AC, 12VDC, 24VDC, or 48VDC supply input. A comprehensive range of input options is available. The XE30 comes as standard with a composite and SCA/RDS inputs. A choice of one additional input module is available from the following:
/S Input Stereo Encoder
/O Mono Input Module
/E AES/EBU Input Module
/R Re-Broadcast Receiver.
