TCM
Transmitter Control Module

INCREASES OR DECREASES HAR BROADCAST RANGE

An important feature for highway advisory radio (HAR) systems is to vary the power level of the transmitter output. This will increase or decrease the coverage area accordingly. The TCM-1 Transmitter Control Module (when used in conjunction with the TXM4 transmitter) allows the power to be set to from 0.1 watts up to 30.0 watts.

The TCM-1 Module is controlled from the MH Corbin DR1500 or CAM-1 recorder/player, which in turn can be controlled remotely using Platinum software.

  • Remote control command to set power level from 0 to 30 Watts in 0.1 Watt increments
  • Remote report command to read back Set Power, Measured Forward Power, Measured Reflected Power, VSWR, and Modulation Level
  • Front panel display to show Set Power, Measured Forward Power, Measured Reflected Power, VSWR, and Modulation Level
  • No maintenance required
  • Operates on 110 V AC line or on 12 V DC battery backup power

30 Watt Boost

FCC Rule 90.242 specifies limits for HAR broadcasts. The TCM-1 can exceed FCC limitations.
