AR Modular RF has shipped a high-volume order for its new Model KAW5030 custom amplifier. The unit, which will be used in a ground to air traffic control application, is an 800W PEP, 200W AM and FM carrier power amplifier system, covering the 100MHz -163MHz and 225MHz – 400MHz frequency ranges.
This new custom communications transmitter system comprises a Power Amplifier, controller sub-system and AC power supply unit encased in a 5.25in-high three RU shelf. The unit mounts into a standard, 19-inch equipment rack and interfaces directly with a co-located lower power ATC transceiver system. Utilising a highly conservative state of the art power amplifier design and dual AC power supplies, these units are designed for high reliability and long life in a 24/7 operational environment. The system weighs 50lbs.
