Inovonics Introduces 525N Mod Monitor
Updates bring the 525 into the digital network world
March 4, 2016
|FELTON, Calif.—Inovonics has added an IP network interface and created a Web application for its 525 AM modulation monitor/receiver. These updates bring the 525 into the digital network world as the 525N.
The 525N is a third-generation product and retains all of the 525’s previous features, but it can now be operated remotely via computer, tablet or smartphone. The Web app also provides greater depth of information than the small two-line onboard LCD display.
Although the 525N maintains full wideband response for measurement, it features user-selectable audio-monitor cutoff characteristics to mitigate noise or to simulate the response of consumer radios, according to the company. A phase-locked synchronous detector provides precise demodulation, rejects interference and recovers only the AM component of HD Radio (hybrid digital) transmissions. The 525N is also compatible with power-saving MDCL operation.
