Overview

Designed for reliability and longevity, the modular design of the Ecreso FM 5000W is based on the ECRESO FM 1500W/2000W Amplifier module.

This amplifier delivers the best cost/watt ratio over the lifetime of the transmitter, has the lowest heat dissipation available on the market today and, with a maximum output power of 5500W, it provides a comfortable margin over nominal power. The amplifier redundancy ensures that, even if you lose one amplifier module, you still have more than 2500W on air.

A crystal-clear signal is achieved using the ECRESO FM 100W exciter and its direct to channel digital modulator and the system can be fully controlled and monitored through the built-in Web interface and SNMP protocol.

Processing stages

Audio Processor on Ecreso Transmitter. Processing stages

Automatic Gain Control
The first stage of the processor is an automatic gain control which regulates the perceived volume level of the station output across all audio sources and formats. It uses predictive algorithms and protects against unwelcome increases in noise.

Equalization, Bass and Treble Enhancers
The AGC is followed by enhancers which embellish both the low and high frequencies. Combined with 3 parametric equalizers, they enable the creation of a distinct sonic signature. 

Stereo Enhancer and Limiter
A stereo enhancer can be used to improve the stereo image of your station when using non-mono content. It also includes a stereo limiter to improve the quality of your station in areas with problematic coverage.  

5 Band Processor
The 5 Band Processor dynamically adjusts the gain of each audio band. Depending on the selected preset, it can work as a slow and purist multi-band leveler, or as a fuller processor to create a strong sonic signature. The fidelity parameter enables you to fine tune the bands according to your preference; from a purist sound to a more colored texture. 

5 band Limiters
5 limiters have been designed to facilitate the work of the final clipper. For soft formats, the limiters provide smooth protection for your final audio and for commercial stations, they can be used to create extra loudness. 

Final Limiters
This section uses several limiters including HF and final low distortion limiters. In addition, and independently of any preset, the ECRESO FM Transmitter can be configured with an MPX Power Limiter and a deviation Hard Clipper for transmitter protection.
