At only 2 RU and about as deep as it is wide, the TX1000 breaks all the rules on 1 kW transmitter size. But the compact form factor is only one of the reasons BW Broadcast's most advanced FM transmitter combines high performance and value for those who can’t afford to buy anything but the best.
The TX1000 is designed for pristine audio quality and fully adjustable from 25 to 1100 watts. Unsurpassed reliability comes standard as proven by the thousands of BW Broadcast’s FM transmitters operating trouble-free in some of the world’s most remote installations. But if trouble were to occur, the architecture of the TX1000 includes BW Broadcast’s novel gold-clamp transistor technology, along with a slide-in power supply, so that the most vulnerable components can be replaced in the field in minutes with no special tools.
All BW Broadcast FM transmitters are loaded with features, such as a configurable compressor/limiter and front-panel LCD control interface. Underlying architecture includes a unique dual-loop Virtual VFO exciter, ultra-low distortion modulator and high performance stereo encoder integrated into a great performing, highly stable FM transmission system. Developed for global use, the TX1000 is frequency agile and complies with all applicable CE, FCC and EU regulations.
The power amplifiers in the TX1000 are based on a modern MOSFET device. High power fans draw fresh air through the transmitter’s heatsink to keep the transistor and amplifier cool. The Amplifier is protected from damage by temperature control systems and antenna fault (VSWR) monitoring which react to faults by reducing the output power to a safe operating level, keeping you on air rather than shutting down completely.
The Virtual VFO dual loop PLL system allows perfect audio flatness to below 10 Hz. AFC bounce and modulator overshoot are things of the pass. Low bass can be achieved without distortion and overshoots, yet with greater stereo separation.
The TX1000 is more configurable and flexible than other units in its class. The limiter and stereo encoder can be switched in and out of circuit. The rear panel contains XLR balanced inputs with input level controls, BNC for multiplex output from the internal digital stereo generator, BNC for multiplex input to the exciter for loop through operation and external processor input. RF output is via an 7/16 socket.
An RS232 control and monitor system can be managed from a standard terminal program or BW Broadcast’s included Windows application. The TX1000 can also be supplied with an FSK ID keyer input for use in translator applications.
