P132 RDS Encoder

The P132 RDS Encoder is a result of more than 10 years experience collecting and meets requirements of most regional, local, RSL, LPFM and other medium- and small-coverage radio stations. Fully digital concept and uniquely effective design ensures high reliability, excellent signal characteristics and gives the user many advanced features while maintaining low acquisition costs. Built-in Ethernet controller supports multiple TCP/UPD ports, internet functions and remote monitoring. The device is compatible with P332 and backward compatible with PIRA32.
