ARC Solo


Powerful All-In-One Remote Monitoring and Control

The ARC Solo includes many of the powerful features of the ARC Plus while offering the simplicity of a self-contained remote control unit. 16 meters, status and relays are all available on the rear apron. Automatic functions, email notifications and even the new Recordable Speech Interface are built in.

Efficient, Flexible Alarm Notification

Alert appropriate personnel with selective alarms. Targeted alerts via email, SMS or telephone assure the proper response.

Built-In Telephone Access

Burk’s Recordable Speech Interface is built right in for dial-in/dial-out telephone control. Featuring a pre-recorded vocabulary tailored for the broadcast industry, users can add up to 1,000 words or short phrases using standard .WAV files.

Access from Anywhere

The ARC Solo includes a built-in web server, allowing access from any PC, smartphone or tablet without installing software. PC-based management is available using the optional AutoPilot® software.

Automate with Jet™ Active Flowcharts

Intelligent automatic site control is available using Jet, included with ARC Solo. Automatic functionality is built into the ARC Solo, eliminating the need for a full-time PC connection.

Self Contained for Easy Installation

The built-in wiring interface means nothing else to buy or install. Just hook up the meter and status inputs, on-board relays, telco and LAN.

Tower Light Monitor

Monitor Steady or Flashing Beacon Lamps

The TLM is a universal lamp alarm relay designed to sense the failure of flashing or steady incandescent beacon lamps or steady side lights. The toroidal current sensor provides islolation and allows monitoring of more than one line at a time. The TLM energizes when one or more lamps fail. It will monitor the operation of up to four side lights or four beacon lamps.

Serial LAN Extender

Extend the LAN to Remote Locations Over Existing Serial Paths

The SL-1 allows deployment of IP-enabled technologies where traditional Ethernet connectivity is impractical or unavailable. Unlike a serial-to-Ethernet converter, which allows RS-232 devices to operate on an existing Ethernet link, the SL-1 enables new IP connectivity to the remote site.

Broadcasters gain studio access to IP remote control, web-based configuration for remote equipment, and access to email and other studio resources while at the transmitter site – all without additional monthly charges. The SL-1 also provides a new option for sending RDS data to the remote site.

Operating in pairs over a full-time bidirectional serial link, the SL-1 accommodates a wide variety of RS-232 links, including radio, leased line and dial-up, with appropriate modems. To optimize bandwidth efficiency, the SL-1 learns the location of each network device and transports only those packets destined for the opposite side of the bridge. Since the SL-1 bridges both networks onto the same subnet, integration with the existing IT infrastructure is easy.

Line Voltage Sensor

Monitor AC Power Circuits

Each LVS monitors a single phase AC power circuit and provides a low-voltage DC output sample that tracks linearly with the AC input voltage. Additional LVS units can be added to monitor multi-phase AC power systems.

AC Current Sensor

Combined Transformer and Signal Conditioner 

The AC Current Sensor combines a transformer and a signal conditioner into one package. The AC Current Sensor has a selectable input range and an industry standard 0-5VDC output. The AC Current Sensor is designed for application on "linear" or sinusoidal AC loads and is housed in a solid-core case.

Transient Suppressor

Transient Suppressor with Flexible Mounting Options

 The TS-1 Transient Suppressor provides transient voltage surge suppression for equipment connected to a dial telephone line with standard RJ-13 or RJ-11 connectors. The high quality die cast aluminum enclosure houses a passive, three-stage protection device designed to conduct destructive energy safely to ground.

Both RJ connections are protected, while allowing the normal ring voltage and voice or data to pass unimpeded. Studio or transmitter audio equipment connected to a two-pair dedicated stereo telco circuit may be protected with the TS-1.

BTU-4D

The BTU-4D Burk Digital Temperature Unit connects up to four digital temperature sensors to an ARC Solo remote control or to a Plus-X input device in an ARC Plus system. Sensor cables up to 1000 feet long are supported without measurement degradation. The unit also provides a low voltage output sample that tracks linearly with the AC line voltage.

Each temperature output supplies 10mV per degree Fahrenheit or Celsius, based on a jumper setting on the BTU-4D/BTU-4D-I.

The BTU-4D/BTU-4D-I  is supplied with:

  • One 120 V AC power adapter for BTU-4D or a 220V AC power adapter for BTU-4D-I  
  • One TEMP-OUTDOOR sensor for either Farenheit or Celcius temperature measurement 
  • One 6‐terminal Phoenix-style plug for connection to monitoring equipment
