The TX5 five-watt FM transmitter is ideally suited for community radio stations, drive-in movie theatres, stadiums, arenas and other applications that demand BW Broadcast quality. And, as an integrated single box solution, it’s an affordable alternative incorporating the exciter, RF amplifier, power supply, stereo encoder and audio limiter.
Designed for pristine audio quality and unsurpassed reliability, thousands of BW Broadcast’s FM transmitters are operating trouble-free in some of the world’s most remote installations. With comprehensive features and creative design, the TX5 is exceptional value for those on a budget but don’t want to compromise on performance.
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 TX5 is frequency agile and complies with all applicable CE, FCC and EU regulations.
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.
With power adjustable from 100 mW to 5 watts, the TX5 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 N-Type socket.
An RS232 control and monitor system can be managed from a standard terminal program or BW Broadcast’s included Windows application. The TX5 can also be supplied with an FSK ID keyer input for use in translator applications.
