Providing outstanding RF and audio performance, the FXi 250 was designed to address current and future FM analog and HD Radio requirements. The FXi 250, with 250 watts output provides FM analog, HD Radio and FM-plus-HD Radio operation—with mode switching available on-the-fly.
Ultra-linear, direct-to-channel RF frequency generation results in the best RF performance. The transmitting frequency is created directly by the DSP system without any IF stages or frequency conversion. Noise and spurious emissions present in some digital exciters are non-existent. Even when used with your current RF power amplifier, the innovations in the FXi Series exciters can provide you with better sounding audio to keep your listeners tuned in.
Standard features include multiple connection options addressing nearly every implementation schemes. For example, the HD Radio stream can be decoded and tapped from an AES output. In addition, an RF output low-pass filter permits direct on-air use. DSP control provides exceptionally precise parameter adjustment from the front panel video menu system as well as pre-correction of non-linearities in the transmitter amplifiers. Providing analog FM data services is simplified with the two SCA generators and basic RDS encoder built-in, as well as the input for an external dynamic RDS generator such as The Radio Experience RDi 20 from BE.
The full complement of audio inputs—L&R analog, composite, mono analog and AES (wired and optical)—are concurrently available for primary and backup source assignment
Ethernet connectivity links the FXi to the BE XPi 10 HD Radio Exporter for programming and data service transmission
Universal power supply with power factor correction (PFC) and high/low voltage detection
AES output provides audio decoded from HDC stream for primary or backup applications
External frequency reference input for locking to GPS or other external source for on-frequency booster transmission
Two SCA generators and a basic RDS encoder are standard, with inputs for external SCA or RDS equipment
