Xicom Outdoor TWTA 400W Ku-band model XT-400K
The Xicom Outdoor TWTA 400W Ku-band model XT-400K is a compact, self-contained, antenna mountable TWTA designed for low-cost installation and long life. Intended for outdoor operation, the need for a separate amplifier shelter is eliminated. In addition, the distance between the amplifier and the antenna feed horn can be short, thus RF-output power is not wasted.
RF-filters, cooling and monitoring & control systems are all self-contained within the HPA. These features have been incorporated to provide overall reliability and lower maintenance and replacement costs.
The XT-400K incorporates high efficiency, dual-stage collector TWT’s. Some of the benefits of this type of TWT are:
- reduced prime power consumption,
- lower internal operating temperatures,
- reliability enhancement.
These benefits are obtained for both the linear and saturated modes of operation.
One of the features of the XT-400 is incorporation of power factor correction circuitry that minimizes line current distortion and reduces the required volt-amps. 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 is used that accepts a wide range of prime power (100 to 260 VAC). The automatic features of the power supply include quick recovery from prime power outages and multiple helix fault resets (three fault cycles). The XT-400 may be configured for single thread, redundant, phase combined or linearized operation.
A remote external controller is available to operate the HPA from a user selected location. Mounting brackets can be supplied to mount the HPA to most popular antennas.
TWTA’s integrated with refurbished Earth Station Antenna
As integrator, Skybrokers can integrate, install and test the Xicom TWTA’s with our used and refurbished Earth Station antennas, like VertexRSI, Andrew/ASC Signal and Viasat. Please feel free to inquire. Our used Amplifiers are always tested by professional technicians in a professional lab with extensive test equipment. We provide a detailed test-report and a 90-day warranty is added. Skybrokers recently has provided a Xicom XT400K amplifier to a broadcasting company in Greece.
