High efficiency up to 76%

When choosing an FM transmitter for your network, efficiency is one of the most important selection criterion as it has a direct technical and financial impact on your station. Higher efficiency means you can broadcast at the same power level while reducing your utility power consumption and heat dissipation. 

As a result, significant savings can be achieved on your electricity bill and cooling systems. But less heat also means less stress on components, increased reliability and a longer service life for your transmitter. That's why, when comparing the efficiency of a transmitter, the best measure is the total and real efficiency including modulator, amplifier stage, power supply, fans and display. It should be measured from the AC mains power input to the RF output, with external and calibrated measurement tools. Even additional functions (RDS encoders, stereo encoders, sound processors...) could be added to the power and efficiency calculations as those units are part of your FM chain with their own power consumption and generation of excess heat. 



The new line of ECRESO FM transmitters provides the highest overall efficiency on the market, up to 76%! Such tremendous performance can only be achieved by using the latest available technologies combined with an innovative design. 

BENEFITS:

  • Up to 76% efficiency
  • Less heat
  • Higher lifespan
  • Lower maintenance and equipment downtime

6th Generation MOSFET & 
NEw PLANAR DESIGN

ECRESO FM transmitters are based ona 6th generation MOSFETs, which offer up to 86% efficiency. These semi-conductor devices dissipate less heat for their surface and consume less power than previous generations. These MOSFETS are more rugged agains high VSWR events and more resistant to heat with a maximum junction temperature up to 225°C. With our super heat sink design and this new MOSFET technology, the new ECRESO FM transmitters are cooler, more reliable and much more economical to own. Based on the same MOSFET, the new ECRESO FM 5/10kW pallets use the new planar design offering even better performance, improved reliability, repeatability and ease of maintenance.

Advanced Monitoring
For full control

With our advanced communications solutions, broadcasters have full control remotely or onsite of their Ecreso FM transmitters.

 

BENEFITS:

  • Time savings for team deployment thanks to data driven insights and remote actions
  • Ensure optimal equipment performance

Keeping your radio on-air

Reliability is the cornerstone of the ECRESO FM transmitter design and all our components are selected on the basis of their robustness and reliability. 

Our power supplies accept a large voltage range on the main power input to ensure consistent operation even during power variations. The power supplies are also protected against short circuit, overload, over-voltage, temperature. For even more protection, a second, optional, surge suppresor module can be included in ECRESO transmittesat the customer's request. We have also designed fail-over options based on Silence detection or loss of RDS signal into the system and included built-in Audio Back-up to ensure off-air time is minimized or eliminated. 

For ultimate reliability and redundancy, we offer a range of Dual Drive, 1+1 and N+1 systems.
