The FM and RDS measurement and monitoring functionality of the FlexMon FM02 help to monitor early warning messages and switch to the national EWR channel.

The receivers can be used in different ways to adapt to broadcasting scenarios. Here the FM tuner is key to the FM02’s specification.

The unit is able to loop through the signal even during a power failure. For MSB, the switching functionality was extended to allow switching from the passive loop through to the emergency channel when a trigger is received via RDS. The product can be used as part of a monitoring solution for both FM and RDS parameters.

Offering remote control via IP and SNMP, the FM02 supports remote audio quality monitoring through its built-in mp3 streaming capability.
