P132 RDS Encoder

The P132 RDS Encoder is well suited for most regional, local, RSL, LPFM and other medium- and small-coverage radio stations which use Ethernet for dynamic RDS data distribution. Fully DSP concept and 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/UDP ports, internet functions and remote monitoring. The device is compatible with P232U, P332 and backward compatible with PIRA32.
