July 8, 2020 - Empower RF Systems'
Model 2225 is a long duty cycle pulsed amplifier operating
from 5.2 to 5.9 GHz and represents our new technologically advanced liquid
cooled and scalable architecture. This breakthrough solid state GaN design replaces
tube technology to bring new capabilities to EW, Radar, Directed Energy and Satcom
applications where tens and hundreds of kilowatts of CW and Pulse power are required.
This new modern architecture offers scalability for affordable upgrade paths to
future power needs by adding hardware to an existing system. Additional racks can
be combined and for racks not fully populated, 2U amplifier drawers can be added
without the need for tuning.
The amplifier system layout consists of a system controller in a 3U and up to
16 hot swappable 2U amplifier drawers with each amplifier drawer containing an integrated
power supply in its 2U chassis. This arrangement eliminates the risk of an RF section
or single power supply failure taking the entire amplifier offline. In the event
of a failure only a fractional reduction of output power is realized and the amplifier
system remains on air.
