The Empower 2170 Solid State Broadband High Power Amplifier 1 GHz - 3 GHz, 1000 W is suitable for multi-octave bandwidth high power CW, modulated, and pulse applications. This amplifier utilizes high power LDMOS devices that provide wide frequency response, high gain, high peak power capability, and low distortions. Exceptional performance, long-term reliability and high efficiency are achieved by employing advanced broadband RF matching networks and combining techniques, EMI/RFI filters, and all qualified components. The amplifier is constructed within one single 5RU drawer including the forced air-cooling. The system comes standard to operate from 180-260VAC single phase or can be ordered optionally with a three phase AC supply.
The amplifier includes a built in control and monitoring system, with protection functions which preserve high availability. Remote management and diagnostics are via an embedded web server allowing network managed site status and control simply by connecting the unit's Ethernet port to a LAN. Using a web browser and the unit's IP address (IPV4, IPV6) allows ease of access with the benefit of multi-level security. The control system core supports hardware encryption, runs an embedded OS (Linux), has a built-in non-volatile memory for event recording, and factory setup recovery features. The extended memory option allows storage of control parameters and event logs.
