Digital EAS encoder/decoder
Digital Alert Systems
DASDEC: The DASDEC is a software-based EAS endec. It meets current EAS needs and configurations, includes digital and is positioned to immediately address the pending CAP compliance issue. At inception in 2003, the DASDEC was defined as Linux software in a PC platform inline with today's IP-based, networked, browser operated technology. The DASDEC received FCC certification in 2004. The front panel has one button, the required readout, a speaker and no printer. The button is for testing and the browser directs printing to a network printer. Browser templates set up the desired configuration defining all EAS operations as well as emergency communications beyond EAS. One internal card contains three browser-defined receivers for EAS monitoring of AM, FM or NOAA, GPIO inputs and outputs and audio override switching.
MM-4XP: The MM-4XP miniature loudspeaker is a self-powered version of the MM-4 miniature wide-range loudspeaker. With a face measuring just four inches square, this compact monitor is suited for locations where space is at a premium. The new MM-4XP has flexible mounting options, an operating frequency range of 120Hz to 18kHz, and peak output of 113dB SPL.
LED light strips
STP50XC: Series STP50XC super white inter-connectable 5mm LED light strips may be used along or connected to one another to configure lighting solutions for warning lights and rack lighting. Available in lengths of 6, 12 and 24", these light strips feature Ledtronics' 5mm dome LEDs in 7,000K and 3,000K colors. The STP506 is 6 inches in length and uses 1.08W. The STP512 is a 12" model that uses 2.52W. The STP 524 is a 24" model that uses 5.40W. Each module has a double-ended connector harness for easy daisy-chain assembly and a pre-applied strip of 3M double-sided foam tape for peel-and-stick placement. One inter-connector module and one power adapter cable are included with each light strip purchased.
AC line switcher
Solid State Relay Pack: This self-contained ac line switching device is designed to operate studio signs using a low dc input voltage to control the output. The input is not polarity sensitive, which simplifies installation. This device is designed to interface with the DM Engineering Slave Auxiliary Relay Pack and many other products. The unit features an input voltage range of 5-15Vdc at 17mA (maximum) with polarity guard. Input wires may be connected without regard to polarity and may be almost any length; fused output with capabilities up to 5A with NEMA standard U ground 3-pin outlet connector; 6' input ac cord with NEMA standard U ground 3-pin plug; Eurostyle removable two-station dc input connector; and zero-crossing technology to eliminate noise.
Optimod-FM 8500FM: Other than providing FM analog processing only, Optimod-FM 8500FM is identical to Orban's flagship 8500 and can be easily field-upgraded to full 8500 functionality. The 8500FM builds on the sound of Optimod-FM 8400 version 3 while adding features that make it particularly ideal for stations that may want to upgrade to HD Radio, Eureka 147, or netcast processing in the future. Under the hood, Orban redesigned all of the circuitry using the latest components and doubled the DSP power, so the DSP not only supports the new features but also provides comfortable headroom for future DSP improvements. The unit features five-band and two-band processing for analog FM transmission, stereo enhancement, equalization, AGC, multi-band compression, low-IM peak limiting, stereo encoding, and composite limiting.
