Rugged L Band SSPA for Satcom Uplink
Empower RF Systems Releases Model 2224, a Tactical Up-Armored Solid State GaN On SiC Amplifier Producing 150 Watts
Empowers Tactical up-armored model 2224 is a compact SSPA operating from 1 to 2 GHz, delivering 150 Watts CW output. The amplifier includes a fast Tx/Rx switch and is designed for rugged outdoor and tactical deployment of data com links. The all-weather heavy duty NEMA 4 enclosure houses a complete amplifier system using our Next Generation architecture so all the local and remote control, monitoring, protections and user remote GUI are identical to our COTS rack systems.
The 2224 comes complete with internal directional coupler, internal forward and reverse power sampling and an easy to use remote web GUI. In depth health monitoring can be viewed remotely and pushed out via the Ethernet port. Output modes includes open loop mode, closed loop fixed gain mode, and closed loop constant power mode. These modes provide the flexibility needed when integrating into legacy systems.
