Xicom XTD-550X 550W X-Band Antenna Mount TWTA Part Number 305-0239-001
This equipment is compact self-contained, antenna mountable power amplifiers designed for low-cost installation and long life.
The design eliminates the need for an amplifier shelter as well as a long waveguide run between the amplifier and the antenna feed horn. RF harmonic filters, cooling, and monitoring & control systems are all self-contained within the HPA.
These features provide high reliability, low maintenance costs, and low replacement costs.
The amplifier incorporates high-efficiency multi-stage collector TWTs.
Some of the benefits of this type of TWT are reduced prime power consumption, lower internal operating temperatures, and reliability enhancement.
These benefits are obtained for both the linear and saturated modes of operation.
One of the features of the XTD-550X is the incorporation of power factor correction.
The combination of power factor correction and high-efficiency TWTs reduces input Volt-Amps by 45% when compared to equivalent amplifiers.
A high-frequency resonant conversion power supply that is used accepts a wide range of prime power (180 to 260 VAC).
The automatic features of the power supply include quick recovery from prime power outages and multiple helix faults reset (three fault cycles).
A complete serial monitoring and control system is built into the unit.
The XTD-550X may be configured for single thread, redundant or phase-combined operation.
