CW Broadcast FM500ES



FM Transmitter w/Exciter Up To 550W with Built-In Stereo Encoder

Contact BSW for your pricing and shipping!

Designed and manufactured in the USA, PTEK solid-state FM exciters/transmitters cover 20 to 1000 watt power ranges and offer full remote control ability. All models boast frequency stability better than +200Hz (using PLL frequency synthesis from a high stability crystal oscillator). They also feature a comprehensive front-panel multimeter and over-temperature and SWR foldback to protect the unit by automatically reducing power output to a safe operating level. The stereo generator (previously sold separately) is now built in.

Built to last and robustly designed to withstand harsh environments where ambient heat and humidity can render products ineffective unless designed for these conditions. Switch mode power supplies provide consistent performance even when there are frequent power outages and voltage fluctuations making stressful demands on products that depend on electric power. Digital front panel metering indicates forward and reverse RF power; deviation; final output volts and amps. The frequency is easily set from the front panel. Meets or exceeds all FCC and CCIR standards.

You can combine the exciter with any PTEK RF power amplifier. All models are type verified for use in the USA (with the FM150ES and FM300ES FCC certified for use on LPFM stations). These units are made in the U.S.A. and include a full 13 month warranty. Call and talk to our knowledgeable sales representatives to get exactly the model you need. BSW carries the entire PTEK line of transmitters, power amplifiers and accessories.
