Inovonics’ 711 is a feature-packed RDS/RBDS Encoder for FM broadcasting. It is fully compliant with NRSC and CENELEC radiodata standards and incorporates the Universal Encoder Communications Protocol (UECP).
The usual format identifiers, translator frequencies and other ‘static’ data are quickly programmed into non-volatile memory using any PC. The Encoder’s serial interface may then be tied directly to station automation for sending song titles, telephone numbers, contest results and promotion or advertising messages. These will immediately be displayed on the listener’s radio.
Another important 711 feature is the “TA Flag.” When your station broadcasts an emergency traffic update, RDS radios automatically tune to your frequency. In some receivers your traffic alert even interrupts cassette or CD playback.
European CENELEC and United States NRSC.
The unbalanced, bridging input accepts a composite/MPX stereo-baseband signal (maximum peak level +18dBu) or a dedicated 19kHz TTL SYNC source (maximum level 5V p-p). The Encoder defaults to an internal crystal timebase for monaural transmission.
The unbalanced output has a source impedance under 100 ohms. The Encoder may be jumpered internally to provide only the RDS subcarrier (sidechain mode), or the entire composite/MPX baseband (loop-through mode) with unity gain (maximum peak level +18dBu).
Under software command the RDS subcarrier may be set at any level between -60dBu and 0dBu in 1dB steps, and shifted in phase ±180∫ in 6∫ increments.
RS-232 port (DB-9 connector) for static ID programming and dynamic messaging. 1200 to 9600 baud (9600 default), 8, N, 1 protocol; plain-text ASCII or standardized UECP data communication.
The temporary TA ‘flag’ is set either by software command or with a momentary contact closure through a rear-panel BNC connector.
