Empower RF released a scalable pulsed L-Band power amplifier with an expandable system hardware architecture designed to save money — "Buy only the power needed today" and add power amplifier blocks later when more output power is required.
Empower RF announces availability of their field proven Model 2185 pulsed amplifier operating from 960 to 1215 MHz at 10 KW peak and duty cycles from 0.1% to 5%. This compact and versatile DME, IFF, TACAN, and JTIDS transmitting amplifier, with flexible operating modes, also makes an ideal fit for radar component testing, advanced research, and system development.
Empower RF is announcing wide availability of their field proven model 2185 high power pulsed amplifier operating from 960 to 1215 MHz at 10 KW Peak and duty cycles from 0.1 to 5%. This compact and versatile radar transmitting amplifier, with flexible operating modes, makes an ideal fit for radar component testing, advanced research, and system development. Because of its superior SWaP, it is also well suited for mobile EW.
Empower RF Systems is an established manufacturer of high power solid state RF & microwave amplifiers offering modules, rack-mount amplifiers, and multi-function power amplifier solutions to 6 GHz, with output power combinations from tens of watts to multi-kilowatts. Applications include communications, radar, Satcom and telemetry, wireless infrastructure, electronic attack, product testing, and EMC.
Empower RF announced it is shipping an RF amplifier system that complements the frequency coverage and power level footprint of its next generation, high power PA product family. Model 2180, covering 1 to 2.5 GHz and delivering an unprecedented 2 kW CW of broadband output power in an 8U, air cooled chassis, is its latest market release.
This set of high power HPAs build on the size, weight and power advantages already demonstrated with commercial product releases in the broad market, “size matters” product family. This recent and unique Airborne Pulse HPA solution features UHF and L-Band pulse amplifiers tied to a shared power supply and delivering 1 kW and 3 kW pulse power, respectively.
This particular set of high power HPAs build on the size, weight and power advantages already demonstrated with commercial product releases in the broad market, “size matters” product family. This recent and unique SATCOM solution delivers 2 kW P1dB (CW, digital modulated signal) in L-Band and a companion product delivers 800 W P1dB (CW, digital modulated signal) in S-Band.
Empower RF Systems continues to leverage next generation hardware and software architecture and is proud to introduce the next series of the ‘’size matters” portfolio – 500 W in 3U chassis. This new PA family operates in the frequency ranges of 20 to 500 MHz (Model 2173), 500 to 1000 MHz (Model 2174) and 20 to 1000 MHz (Model 2175) with the output power guaranteed over full bandwidth and temperature.
A next generation, “size matters” 1 kW power amplifier from Empower RF Systems, already deployed at a customer site overseas, had its operating software and user interface successfully updated via a software patch that was downloaded from a secure web portal and installed with a USB drive inserted directly into the back panel of the amplifier.
