Arcam T32 - v 7.0.1

Extra Vegetables' Control4 drivers for the Arcam T32 DAB FM tuners provide two-way integration. Arcam tuners are highly respected for their audio quality.

Once set up, the driver automatically produces an alphabetical list of all of the available DAB stations on the Control4 touch panels and remote controls. Your customer can quickly choose from any of the stations available. It also provides RDS (FM) and DLS (DAB) feedback onto the touch panels. This provides details of the current tuned station and text information as broadcast by the station. On the AM and FM bands the current frequency is also shown.

No Direct FM or AM tuning by frequency

XM Wording
In some places on the DAB user interface the letters XM or the phrase XM tuner appear. This is hard coded into Control4 and we are unable to remove this.


Further information

The Extra Vegetables Control4 drivers for the T32 and DT91 DAB tuners implements the following features:

Reliable Serial Control.
Control is via the tuner's serial port. This means reliable communications between the Control4 system and the tuner and no annoying IR bugs to fall off.

Autoscan for stations within Composer.
You can scan in all the available stations from a button in Composer. This makes set up quick and simple.

Automatically saves required presets .
In order to directly set DAB stations each has to be stored as a preset on the tuner. This would be a long and boring task manually so we've automated it! Auto store takes around ten minutes.

Automatically display of all available DAB stations on Control4 touch panels and remotes.
Key to our driver is the ability to select from any of the available DAB stations from the Control4 user interfaces. These are automatically retrieved from the tuner and displayed to your customer as an alphabetical list. They can select any available DAB station from any room in the home.

Simple dealer set up of DAB favorite stations.
You can set up your customers favorite stations with quick access logos using the Media section of Composer. The driver automatically allocated channel numbers to each available station.

AM and FM favorite stations can be set up using presets.
The tuner doesn't allow direct selection of stations by frequency. But if you want to set up favorites on these bands you can manually store them as presets on the tuner and reference these in the Media set up of Composer.

Station Name display on touch panels.
The driver uses a combination of Control4's FM and XM touch panel layouts. Both show the name of the current station.

RDS and DLS information displayed on touch panels.
Both RDS radio text from FM and DLS information from DAB are displayed. This usually provides information to your customer about the current program or song. On the AM band only the frequency is displayed.
