TL02KO - Communications & Power Industries

250 W SuperLinear® Outdoor TWT BUC
Built for Outdoor Applications
Provides 250 watts of peak power in a rugged and compact
weatherproof package, digital ready, for wideband singleand 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 Highly Efficient
As part of the SuperLinear TWTA product line, this is the
most efficient and compact amplifer in its class. Both the
tube and HPA are optimized for efficient operation at linear
power output levels.
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 certified. Meets EMI per MIL-STD-461F
RE102 and CS114-116 Army Ground Profile.
