The new 20-62 transmitters are available as VHF and UHF units with user-programmable power outputs ranging from 50 milliwatts to 5 watts. Using programming software, each model can be tuned across its full frequency range with no hardware adjustments.

They are capable of operating as NRZ or POCSAG transmitters. The built-in POCSAG encoder can be enabled or disabled as required.

In addition to a RS232 serial port, an on-board USB port enhances the range of applications to which the transmitter can be applied. Input/Output expansion is also possible via input/output module or Ethernet.

The Ethernet, USB and RS232 ports can be used to initiate transmissions using the Salcom proprietary protocol, TAP/PET, TNPP, ESPA.4.4.4, Ascom, Gaming, Austco, Match, Gent, GPS & Pulse Count, SMS, Scope, Comp1, Comp2, 12-32, 12-36, 12-84. These ports can be used concurrently and also initiate transmissions via the USB and Ethernet ports, each of which can support a different protocol, if so desired.

Four discrete inputs are supported which may be used to initiate relay commands for remote control applications.

The unit also supports low voltage detection on the power input.

Configuration of the transmitter is performed via the USB port or the serial port using the Salcom programming application, which allows for the setting of all operational parameters.

The 20-62 is housed in an attractive, durable extruded aluminium case with provision on the base plate for wall mounting.
