OVERALL

CHARACTERISTICS

TXM SMP© Superior Modular Philosophy

allows relevant advantages:

• The entire system benefit of the optimum characteristics of the base module VL Amplifier.

• The VL Amplifier are each of them a complete a functioning module with it’s own power supply ventilation, control logic and output filter, so, as the opposite of the standard plug-in transmitters bricke lives by themselves witch facilities the maintenance and the test: no need of special tools, each module can be connected and installed or tested as a single amplifier.

• Developping the VL Amplifier our engineers concentrate all the effort on: minimize weight, cost, power consumption and heat produced, and maximize: efficiency, reliability, electrical performance, connectivity and easy maintenance.

• A single VL Amplifier can be put on air as back-up of a bigger transmitter.

• Shock and vibration during the transportation process can compromise the result of an installation, optimizing the VL Amplifier package allow our engineers to meet the most demanding transport conditions for hermetic, temperature control and vibration and Shock Isolation.

During installation and maintenance, handled light packs help the health to operators.

The TXM SMP© Superior Modular Philosophy Is a family based on a very compact Amplifier and its variouscombinations. Thanks to a careful choice of size, 2 HE, power levels of the building blocks 2 kW FM, it can be considered as the New Reference for the modular transmitters.

The modularity is completed with special combiners, FM exciters and control logics.

FM exciter can be Analog or DDS both with integrated AES/EBU interface.
