TL05KO - Communications & Power Industries

500/550 W Peak Power Outdoor TWTAs
Built for Outdoor Applications
Provides 500 or 550 watts of peak power in a rugged and
compact weatherproof package, digital ready, for wideband
single- and multi-carrier satellite service over up to 3.5 GHz
within the Ka-band frequency band. Ideal for both
transportable and fixed earth station applications.
Cost Effective and Efficient
Employs a high efficiency helix traveling wave tube,
reducing operating costs. Both single and multi-band BUCs
are available. The multi-band BUC allows users to switch
between two pre-selected frequency ranges with up to 1 GHz
of bandwidth each.
Rugged and Easy to Maintain
Built-in fault diagnostic capability via remote monitor and
control. Easy access enclosure for improved serviceability.
CAN-Bus architecture improves reliability and improves
noise immunity.
Meets Global Requirements
Meets International Safety Standard EN-60215,
Electromagnetic Compatibility 2004/108/EC
and Harmonic Standard EN-61000-3-2 to satisfy worldwide
requirements. CE Marked and licensed for import in Brazil,
Russia and China.

Customer must select desired peak/output power and frequency range at time of purchase. These options are TWT dependent and are not field changeable. Peak
power specs are provided so that desired backoff can more easily be calculated. The amplifier’s actual output at the flange, CW power, is 250 W, 290 W, or 340 W,
depending on selection. CW and peak power are both reduced by 10 W with harmonic filter option.

refinement. Please contact CPI before using this information for system design.
