TL01KO - Communications & Power Industries

125 W SuperLinear® Outdoor TWTA
Built for Outdoor Applications
Rugged, compact and lightweight amplifier designed for
outdoor use. Provides a guaranteed 50 W of linear power
at the flange over 1000 MHz. A multi-band BUC option is
available: users may switch from two different
pre-selected frequency ranges each with up to
1 GHz bandwidth.
Cost Effective and Efficient
Mounting at the antenna improves performance through
minimized cable losses and saves cost in system design.
Employs a high efficiency helix traveling wave tube,
reducing operating costs. Consumes 1/5 the prime power of
comparable SSPAs, and weighs 35% less.
Rugged, Easy to Maintain, Simple to Operate
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. User-friendly microprocessor-controlled
logic with integrated Ethernet computer interface. Digital
metering is standard.
