The Multi Station Relay Adapter (MSRA & MSRA-RM) are a microprocessor based, three stereo channel accessory for the Sage-Endec and Digital Alert Systems EAS encoder-decoders (endec), that expands the allowable controlled number of stations from a single endec to up to a total of four. The MSRA is compatible with the original Sage-Endec SE1822, the new Digital 3644 and the Digital Alert Systems endecs when used in the analog audio mode. The endec has embedded programming that allows three additional stereo or mono stations, in addition to the station controlled within the endec itself, to be controlled using Multi Station Relay devices such as the DM Engineering MSRA. All digital commands and EAS audio is supplied by the endec, and the MSRA interprets these commands to select the appropriate station or stations for EAS broadcast. For units providing activation of relay contacts only for control of AES and Ethernet switchers and routers please check out the Multi-Station Expander (MSRE) web page.
The MSRA digital communication with the endec is via RS232 and the EAS audio for the MSRA is derived from the “Line Output” connection of the endec. A multi-turn recessed front panel “ Input Gain” trim potentiometer and individual multi-turn “Station Gain” controls are provided for controlling the active stereo distribution amplifier sections having balanced output levels capable of greater than +12dBm into a 600 ohm load impedance. A recessed front panel “Test” switch is also provided for aiding in the setup of the audio levels.
An optically isolated open collector “Tally” output for user control applications is provided and is active when any or all of the 3 MSRA controlled stations are activated, and remains active until the end of the EAS activation.
The MSRA is transparent
to program audio due to it’s loop-through design, and uses 6 high
quality bifurcated gold over silver nickel contact sealed relays, one
relay for each left and each right channel circuit. The MSRA also is designed
to remain transparent to program audio during any power failure condition.
Front panel LED indicators
are provided for “Power” and “Station” left and
right audio relay activation during an EAS event.
