SmartGen 4.0

RDS/RBDS Encoder with USB & RS-232 Connectivity

Full-function, Fast and easy programming, Simple and foolproof

The SmartGen 4 is a full-function RadioData encoder that conforms to European and US standards for FM datacasting. It supports all service IDs and offers simultaneous scrolling-PS and RadioText messaging.

2-way addressability includes a front-panel USB port for fast and easy static register programming of station and format IDs, and for entering default scrolling or static text. In full-dynamic operation, station automation communicates with direct RS-232 serial connection.

Screen-entry Windows® software makes programming the SmartGen 4 simple and foolproof. The SmartGen 4 can "parse" scrolling text, automatically breaking phrases into word groups, or can display text with the "Safe-Scrolling" option.

- Operates with any FM exciter and stereo generator. A dedicated 19kHz sync source is not required, and a failsafe relay bypass is built in.
- Connects directly to all popular radio automation systems to scroll song titles and advertising.
- Direct-entry programming software runs under Windows® with RS-232 serial and local USB connectivity.

RDS data decoding
Standards SupportedEuropean CENELEC and United States NRSC.
RDS Applications SupportedPI, PS, PTY, TP, TA, RT, AF, DI, M/S, FFG.
Operating Modes(1) Loop-Through: In loop-through operation, the RDS subcarrier is internally mixed with the MPX input and the combined signal is delivered to the RDS or MPX Output. The encoder has unity gain in the loop-through mode and accepts a maximum level of 6 volts peak-to-peak corresponding to ±75kHz carrier deviation.
(2) Sidechain: In sidechain operation, only the RDS subcarrier appears at the RDS or MPX Output. The monitored MPX (or TTL sync) is used solely to synchronize the 57kHz RDS subcarrier with the 19kHz stereo pilot.
Input / Output
Pilot or MPX InputAn unbalanced, bridging BNC input that accepts either the composite/ multiplex (MPX) signal or 19kHz TTL-level pilot sync from the stereo generator.
RDS or MPX OutputAn unbalanced, low-impedance BNC output to feed a wideband input of the FM exciter.
RDS Injection LevelContinuously adjustable between zero and 2 volts peak-to-peak.
Serial Data PortRS-232 port (DB-9) for static programming and dynamic messaging. 2400, 4800, 9600 or 115k baud; 8, N, 1, plain-text ASCII protocol.
TA SwitchingThe temporary TA flag is set either by a software command or with a momentary contact closure through a rear-panel BNC connector.
Power Requirements105÷130VAC or 210÷255VAC, 50/60Hz; 10W.
