The highly-selective DSP-based tuner of the device allows the DAB/DAB+ and online stream of the station to be selected, monitored and listened to through the top-quality speakers or headphones. The signal is monitored and logged, while the DB3012 also measures and stores for future analysis the DAB signal quality and the Left & Right Audio level values. A standard FTP client ensures easy download of the collected data. Furthermore, to bring you uninterrupted audio broadcast, the DB3012 provides local alarm options and online notifications via rear-panel alarm GPOs, E-mail and SNMP ver. 2C, in case of audio loss or change in the DAB signal and the Left and Right Audio Levels. This allows for a quick response on the part of your maintenance staff so that prolonged signal loss is prevented.

One of the defining characteristics of each DEVA product is the useful combination of technical capabilities and easy control and set-up. Your DB3012 unit can be programmed through the front-panel menu, while remote access is granted through your PC, tablet or smart phone via a standard web browser; iOS and Android devices are also supported. A click is all that is needed for you to access the WEB interface so that you can listen to the DAB/DAB+ Station and online streams. A high-resolution OLED graphical display and three ultra-bright LED bar-graph indicators allow for easy reading of the main signal parameters. The front panel menu and the set of four soft buttons provide easy navigation through the menus and quick access to the device’s functions.
