Built-in power supply and automatic antenna tuner.
Dimensions: L 38cm, H 18.3cm, D 43cm (connectors included).
Weight: Approximately 25kg
Two powerful CPUs are used.
Over 35,000 lines of software for performance that cannot be found in any other amplifier.
Easy connection with all models “ICOM, YAESU, KENWOOD, TEN-TEC, FlexRadio, ELECRAFT” for immediate management of the bands, tuner and antennas.
Same performance with all makes or homemade rigs.
The operator only has to turn the “Frequency tuning knob” on the transceiver.
1.8 MHz to 30 MHz.
Up to 2 KW pep SSB, CW.
MAX/MID(1KW)/LOW(500W) power selected according to the operator SSB/CW power requirement, for digital modes and for linear protection (automatic).
No heating time, immediately ready!
Virtually limitless life of the amplification devices (6 MOSFETs MRF151G).
Capable of matching 3:1 SWR on HF.
Capable of programmable switching of 6 antennas (SO239 connectors).
Up to three antennas for the same band.
Management of the SteppIR/Ultrabeam antennas (tuneable).
Measures also the SWR of the antenna/cable system.
Bands, antennas, tuning conditions are changed in 10 msec.
Bands, antennas and tuning conditions are managed also in “STBY” to support the exciter only.
Max. attenuation 0.8 dB.
In “OPERATE” the required drive power is automatically set with an ALC connection and in “STANDBY”. The exciter is then automatically reset to full power.
Spurious emissions less than -60 dB.
3rd order distortion (two tone test) 36 dB typically.
SWR less than 1.2:1.
Temperature, over voltage, over current, SWR, reflected power, max RF tuner voltage, over-drive, Amp.
The correct parameters are continuously monitored.
The same protections are realised in two different ways:
Thanks to the SW, transmit relay changeover is carried out with zero current at the contacts.
Linear management of the spped of the cooling fans of the heatsink.
In the power supply, fans speed is reduced during the reception.
Due to the high power developed, a significant amount of heat must be removed. Every precaution has been taken to keep the noise of the fans at the lowest possible level.
“MAX” mode: SSB/CW unlimited.
Automatically switches to “MID” for a while if, in “MAX”, a continuous signal (RTTY) is transmitted.
“MID” “LOW” modes, RTTY unlimited.
Continuous input between 190 – 255 Vac, 47-63 Hz.
PFC (Power Factor Correction).
W pep out, V pa, I pa, W, power gain, temperatures, SWR (after and before the ATU), input setting, CAT setting, band and other indicators including an alarms log.
Powerful SW gives you a user-friendly unit.
