RDS/RBDS Encoder

THIS PRODUCT IS NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION

An easy-to-use RDS/RBDS Encoder with the versatility of dual-mode operation. The simple “static” mode does not utilize a host computer, nor does it require any user programming.

As many as 15 separate “frames” (complete sets of IDs, flags and messages) are factory-programmed into the 710’s non-volatile memory. With the touch of a button or by remote command, any data frame may be selected and instantly sent-out over the air.

Features


  • THIS PRODUCT IS NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION

  • Inovonics’ Model 710 offers a simple and inexpensive means of implementing the Radio Data System, generally referred-to worldwide as RDS. In the United States, this same service is known as the Radio Broadcast Data System, or RBDS.

  • The 710 owes its simplicity and low cost to its development primarily as a static radio data encoder. A parallel data port does, however, permit limited, on-line dynamic control when the Encoder is used with a dedicated IBM-compatible host computer.

Composite Loop-Through Level

Unity-gain; 1V-10Vp-p, relative to 100% (±75kHz) carrier modulation.

Composite Input

Unbalanced-bridging, 600-ohmterminating, or 75-ohmterminating; selected by internal jumpering.

Composite Output

“Zero-impedance” voltage source, 75-ohm source impedance, or 600 ohm source impedance; selected by internal jumpering.

RDS Subcarrier Injection Level

Continuously adjustable between 1% and 10% of total carrier modulation.

Remote Data Frame Selection

Encoder accepts TTL logic, NPN transistor saturation, or switch contact closure to ground to add selected frame(s) to the autosequence routine.

Dynamic Data Interface

The 1-byte-wide parallel data bus (DB-25 connector) may be cabled directly to the LPT (parallel) port of an IBM-compatible computer for dynamic, on-line control of the 710 Encoder.

Power Requirements

105–130VAC or 210–255VAC, 50/60Hz; 15 watts
