C Band Transmitter for Radar and Jamming
Empower RF Systems Model 2217 is a Long Duty Cycle Pulsed GaN On SiC Amplifier Delivering 8KW of Peak Power.
This air cooled 8 KW 20% duty cycle pulse amplifier system brings sophisticated monitoring, protection, and control functions to mission critical applications. It's an intelligent amplifier system with a flexible software and embedded firmware design that can be customized to add mission support capabilities specific to the users integrated system. Remote control and monitoring is included.
The 2217 is based on Empower’s established and field proven Next Generation architecture that is tactically deployed on range and operating in support of critical DOD missions.
The 2217 comes complete with internal directional coupler, external forward and reverse sample ports, and an easy to use web GUI. In depth health monitoring with alarms visible on the front panel are also pushed out via the LAN port. For critical “on air” applications, the 2217 provides "Graceful Output Power Degradation", backing down power to a safe operating level in the event of component failure or excessive Load VSWR condition.
