PA516B Features:

The AMC516 series can be used to receive AM Broadcast signals off-air, and re-generate and amplify them to fixed RF output levels.

Two pairs of RF outputs are provided for multi-bore and multizone applications (such as two separate "bores" in a road tunnel). An "audio break-in" feature enables live or pre-recorded messages to interrupt the rebroadcast transmissions, allowing for public address or incident management messages to be broadcast. The audio break-in can be activated independently, allowing local audio to be actioned onto either, or both, of the RF output pairs.

A dual input antenna capability allows for two off-air antenna configurations. If utilised, this feature provides the capability to select optimum input signal strengths determined by AM broadcast source direction, topography, off-air antenna mounting location, etc.

Both the RF Output and Audio Input level gains can be configured on a per-channel basis to cater for specific level setting within a system application. Local RS232 port is provided for firmware upgrading, configuration, alarms and status monitoring.
