WOLF is a comprehensive and multifunctional FM station monitor and decoder. It analyzes analog and digital audio signals and it monitors / decodes MPX composite signals. In addition, by means of its an integrated FM tuner, it analyzes aired signals in the FM band. A dedicated module monitors and decodes RDS / RBDS services. The WOLF is able to perform the largest yet most precise range of measurements. Among the others, measures include Rms audio power, audio Peak, Pilot level, RDS level, instantaneous deviation peak, ITU-BS412 power, Peak, level and power on FM signal. Measurement results are accessible via SNMP protocol and via the integrated WEB Server in the form of ordinary HTML pages. This means, results can be accessible on any Browser, included last generation mobile phones and PDA. Each unit comes also with a dedicated Pc Control software, to be used to configure units for their right work.

The WOLF can operate in two different modes.
When running in "stand-alone mode", The WOLF unit continuously compares each actual measurement result with a pre-defined range of accepted values and triggers alarms in various forms (contact closures, SNMP traps, etc) in the event of some value mismatching.
Thanks to its integrated changeover stages, it can also swap inputs (either audio - analog or digital - or MPX) in order to keep the system running.
When operating in "Master/Slave" mode, each Slave unit compares instantaneous, local measures with the ones performed by the Master unit at the head of the network.
This way, the whole STL link will be efficiently monitored. The The WOLF come s with 3 Break-Out Boxes available.
One makes available analog audio In/Out on standard 3-pin XLR connectors, one makes available digital Aes/Ebu in/out on standard 3-pin XLR connectors and the last one adds more flexibility to MPX input stage.
