Introduction
Professional FM tuner
The TSP40 is a professional FM tuner with worldwide FM band support which provides access
to a wide variation of radio stations while guaranteeing a high-quality audio reproduction.
Station selection can be done manually or automatically, while up to 10 preferred channels
can be internally stored and recalled.
The front panel of the system accomodates a 2.8” TFT display in combination with a push
rotary function dial and 4 tactile pushbuttons. The controls and indicators on the front panel
of the unit are guaranteeing an intuitive and user friendly operation, allowing hassle free
operation and configuration to even unexperienced users. Information such as radio station
information carried by RDS and signal reception strength are indicated.
The signal output level is user configurable and traffic announcement volume can be
individually set which guarantees the best intelligibility in specific requiring applications.
Other functions such as mono/stereo switching always guarantee the best possible audio
reception. The FM tuning range can be switched between 64 ~ 108 MHz and 87.5 ~ 108
MHz for worldwide FM band support.
The antenna input is implemented by an F-type connector allowing connection of the included
antenna cable or any other external antenna using 75 Ω coaxial cabling. The balanced stereo
line output is connected through two 3-pin terminal block connections.
The RS-232 communication port allows system integration with any home or industrial
automation system, while an optional 2.4 GHz remote control allows handheld control while
hidden out of sight.

Radio station selection:
• Automatic tuning:
The currently playing radio station can be selected
by pressing the
(tuning down) and
(tuning up)
buttons. When selected, it will automatically start
searching for the next station with sufficient signal
strength. The currently tuned frequency will be
indicated at the center of the screen, also indicating
additional carried RDS information (if available) such
as the currently playing station or track name.
12
• Manual tuning:
The tuning frequency can be manually adjusted by rotating the function dial until the tuned
frequency is highlighted in blue colour. When highlighted, confirm manual tuning adjustment
by single pressing the rotary dial and adjust the tuner frequency by rotating clockwise (tuning
up) or counter-clockwise (tuning down). Once tuned to the desired frequency, conform the
tuned frequency by single pressing the function dial once again.
Save radio station:
The currently playing station can be stored to one of the 10 available positions. A horizonal
array with numbers from 1 to 10 is indicated on the bottom of main tuner screen, representing
the 10 positions whereto the presets can be saved. Rotate the function dial until the number
for radio station storage is highlighted, and press the (save) icon for saving the currently
selected frequency to the selected position.
Recall radio station:
A stored radio station can be recalled by rotating the function dial until the number on the
horizontal array on the bottom of the main tuner screen is highlighted. When highlighted,
confirm the recall of the stored frequency by single pressing the function dial. The stored
frequency under this position is now recalled and the radio station will start playing.
General settings:
The (General settings) button gets you to the general settings menu where all general
settings for the device can be configured.
TSP40 Settings screen
The settings menu for TSP40 can be loaded by rotating the rotary dial until the (settings)
symbol is highlighted in blue colour. When highlighted, confirm to proceed to the settings
menu by single pressing the rotary dial.
Gain:
The gain can be adjusted within a range of +8 dB and -55
dB, allowing optimalization of the output level according
to the input sensitivity of the connected amplifier or preamplifier. For adjusting the output gain, rotate the function
dial until ‘Gain’ is highlighted and press it for proceeding
to the gain settings. The level can be adjusted by rotating
clockwise (tuning up) or counter-clockwise (tuning down).
Press the rotary dial for confirming the currently set output
level.

Gain TA (Traffic announcement):
The traffic announcements gain allows a different output level for traffic announcements
(if playing radio station includes TA information). This feature can be useful for applications
where traffic announcements should be heard at higher volumes than background music.
The traffic announcement gain can be adjusted within a range of +8 dB and -55 dB, allowing
to switch to the set TA gain when any TA signal is detected on the currently playing radio
station. In the maximum position (TA GAIN = TA), the output level will remain unchanged
when any TA carrier is detected.

Freq. Range:
The FM reception frequency range can be switched between 87.5 ~ 108 MHz and 64 ~ 108
MHz, depending in which part of the world the system will be used. Toggling between both
frequency ranges can be done by single pressing the function dial.
Mono:
The FM reception is standard set to stereo mode, however it will switch automatically to mono
mode if the signal reception strength is insufficient. This reduces the noise and improves the
sound quality when having poor signal reception.
Manual switching the output to mono mode is possible using this function, allowing the output
to be fed to mono systems, such as 100V public address amplifiers. Toggling between mono
and stereo mode can be done by single pressing the function dial.
Back:
Returning to the main screen is done by selecting ‘Back’.
General settings
The general settings menu for TSP40 is loaded when
pressing the (general settings) button. The general
settings menu allows to configure all the global
settings for the TSP40 unit, keeping aside the audio
and frequency settings.
Lock:
When selecting ‘Lock’, the system will be locked and
will require a password to be entered before any further
action can be taken (if the password is enabled).
