FM Transmitters PFG Series is a range of modular FM transmitters designed to operate in the whole 87.5 – 108 MHz frequency range for FM radio broadcasting, with power range 100W – 40kW.

MAIN CHARACTERISTICS

Each FM Transmitter PFG Series includes the following elements:

  • Exciter.

  • Amplifier.

  • Control logic unit.

  • External cooling unit, in case of liquid cooling system.

 

Mozart series exciters
All exciters in FM Transmitter PFG Series belongs to the Mozart series, FM Transmitter latest audio excellence.

FM Transmitter GREEN RF™ technology
The GREEN RF™ technology, combined with the new 65:1 devices, is the latest evolution of the world-famous patented COLD-FET™ technology applied on FM Transmitter. The main advantages are:

  • High RF efficiency (>70%).

  • Higher safety.

  • Higher reliability.

  • Lower heating.

  • Lower AC power consumption.

 

Complete remote control
FM Transmitter PFG Series  has an extremely complete Web server, SNMP, GSM or SMS remote control system, available as option.

WiFi touch management
FM Transmitter PFG Series Remote management via WiFi on mobile, smartphones or tablets, as option.

Hot-Plug Solution (optional)
FM Transmitter PFG Series over 5kW can be equipped optionally with the hotplug system to instantly extract the amplifier modules with FM Transmitter in full power. All the amplifier modules slide on telescopic rails and can be completely extracted and removed for on-air maintenance or replacement without disconnecting any cable and without interrupting the FM Transmitter operation.

Uninterrupted service
An intelligent protection of the circuit reduces the output power without on-air interruption, keeping the RF devices always within the safe operating parameters in case of:

  • Load mismatching.

  • Environmental over-temperature.

  • Cooling failure.

  • Failure in one or more amplification modules.

  • Failure in power supply modules.

HIGHLIGHTS:

High efficiency cooling system

The air cooling system limits the heat-sink temperature rise to only about 10°C above ambient temperature. This guarantees the properly functioning even at high temperatures and in sites with extreme climate conditions.

Air cooling
FM Transmitter PFG Series oversized air cooling system widely extends transistor life. The amplifier modules are equipped with external redundant fans to allow easy and fast cleaning or replacement, without opening or removing any module and without interrupting the FM Transmitter operation.

 

Liquid Cooling

Ln oversize heat exchanger, single or double (optional), suitable for outdoor or indoor installation, and equipped with single or double (optional) pump system for maximum redundancy, is the main component of the powerful liquid cooling system.
FM Transmitter PFG Series liquid cooling system assures high reliability, cooling efficiency and easy installation, thanks to the special design of liquid cooled heat-sinks inside the amplifier and low pressure liquid distribution. This system is designed to successfully face every hard climate condition.

PFG advantages of liquid cooling

Substantial advantages of our liquid cooling technology compared to air cooling are:

  • Properly working even with hard climate conditions.

  • Dramatically reduction of air conditioning.

  • Proper functioning in dusty environment even with high humidity or salinity.

  • Very low acoustic noise.

  • Low heat radiation into the environment.

  • Longer life for transistors and active elements due to colder continuous operation.

 

AAD Technology

  • Prevents corrosion from air moisture and increases reliability.

  • Components are made in anticorodal aluminum.

  • Air is ducted to avoid contact with electronic parts.

  • All electronic boards and cablings are tropicalized with a special resin to protect the circuits against salt air.

EFFICIENCY ENHANCEMENT

FM Transmitter PFG Series design was optimized to get minimum losses of the passive elements and excellent performances of the active elements to increase the AC efficiency up to more than 70%.
