2wcom Introduces A30 for FM Monitoring

Flensburg, GERMANY — 4 July  2016

2wcom has released the A30, the company’s newest monitoring device and successor to the A20.

Featuring additional power and flexibility, the system is equipped with two professional FM tuners able to be used independently. Operators can, for example, use the first tuner to monitor audio inputs (silence detection), while the second tuner monitors up to 30 broadcasting stations in scan mode. When in scan mode, the system lets operators effortlessly configure station order and measurement time via a Web interface. All data received is hidden, allowing the visualization of all stations, regardless of whether they are being or were recently monitored.

The user-friendly A30 features a number of interfaces including an analog or digital audio input, MPX input, two analog or digital audio MPX outputs, relays, GPIs, SNMP and two parallel MP3 streams.

In addition, the A30 is capable of serving as a backup source and can loop through incoming external audio/MPX signals to its outputs via quality relays. It is able to measure the incoming external audio/MPX source and in the case of signal degradation, switch the output source to an internal FM tuner. If the signal degradation is no longer existent, the A30 automatically shifts back to the external audio/MPX source.

“Following the success of 2wcom’s A20, we decided to build on the adaptable concept and introduce an even more flexible and powerful monitoring system. The A30 is a more refined product that meets even the most stringent FM monitoring demands,” said Werner Drews, managing director of 2wcom.
