Multiband combiner and coupler
Bird Technologies Group
43-05-01 Series; 80-05-14: The Multiband Control Station Combiner, model 43-05-01 series, provides frequency-agile operation across multiple bands. Operating in frequency ranges of 40-960MHz, the multi-channel multi-band combiner interoperability can be combined into a single network for efficiency. The unit is low profile for space-efficient installation while saving cost by combining multiple bands in the same combiner. The Multiband Coupler, model 80-05-14, reduces tower transmission lines at sites operating from VHF to 900MHz.
Program Length Manager: The 25-Seven Program Length Manager (PLM) shrinks or stretches your programs and program segments by 5 percent (three minutes per hour) or even 10 percent - without pitch change, artifacts or glitches. Time-manipulated audio is clean enough to use on stereo music programs and live events. PLM is operator friendly and requires little training whether controlled from the front-panel or via Web browser. PLM is the next best thing to being able to stop the clock or add more minutes to the hour.
SCDP Series: Neutrik features a dust- and water-resistant connector for use with all D-shaped chassis connectors with its newest sealing gasket (SCDP-*). Designed for use with Neutrik's Opticalcon Duo and Quad fiber connectors or any Neutrik product using a standard D-style cutout, including the newly introduced water-resistant USB/FireWire and HDMI feedthroughs, the SCDP gasket gives additional value and safety to any installation in the mated condition. The sealing gasket is available in six different colors: Black, red, yellow, green, blue and white. Color-coded D-shaped chassis connectors also provide the added benefit of quick identification on-site.
6020: The 6020 broadband dipole is now also incorporated into a low-windload broadband FM panel, model 6018V or 6018H. It is rated at 10kW input and can be used either for vertically or horizontally polarized applications. The 6020 has already been used successfully in Turkey and Haiti, and has proven its capabilities as a rapidly deployable, robust 5kW antenna. Features include vertical polarization and 5kW power rating per bay. Radomes and de-icers are not required.
IP automation controller
Barionet 50: A fully programmable network controller, the Barionet 50 is ideal for interfacing devices and real world I/O via IP with open, standards-based monitoring and control platforms. It is a modular component that can operate standalone or in concert with other units, Web servers and control systems. Professional applications include access control, machine data collection and environmental monitoring of everything from temperature to water pressure. Barionet devices use very low power (typically 1.2W with inactive relays) and are well-positioned for green applications such as energy metering, smart grid control and intelligent building management.
