The Sage Digital ENDEC incorporates the legacy and reliability of the original Sage ENDEC along with the latest developments in EAS and CAP. The Sage Digital ENDEC's network centric design allows logging via network printers and email, control/automation, and NTP access to a time standard via a network or Internet connection. The familiar front panel legacy interface is also supported. The new Sage Digital ENDEC has text to speech capabilities and is fully compliant with the FEMA specified CAP 1.2 standard.
The ENDEC supports CAP 1.1 and CAP 1.2, with the IPAWS Profile 1.0 and ECIG Implementation Guide. Final FCC definitions of CAP for use with EAS are pending, however, changes by the FCC are expected to be minor, and Sage plans to offer a free software update for those changes once they are published by the FCC. See the FCC's Fourth Report and Order for details.
