Xicom Technology Outdoor TWTA 400W C-band model XTD-400C
Antenna-mounted Traveling Wave Tube Amplifiers (TWTA’s)
Xicom’s antenna-mounted TWTA’s are known worldwide for their reliable operation and long life. By eliminating the need for long waveguide runs, transmit power is optimized and RF Losses are reduced. Acclaimed for their compact and highly efficient design, Xicom’s antenna-mount amplifiers dramatically reduce both installation and operation costs.
The XTD-400 is a compact self contained antenna mountable high power amplifier (HPA) designed for low cost installation and long life. The outdoor design eliminates the need for an amplifier shelter as well as a long waveguide run between the amplifier and the antenna feed horn. RF-filters, cooling, and monitoring & control (M&C) systems are all self contained within the HPA. These features provide high reliability, low maintenance costs, and low replacement costs.
The XTD-400 uses high efficiency dual-stage collector Traveling Wave Tubes (TWT). Some benefits of this type of TWT are:
- Reduced prime power consumption
- Lower internal operating temperatures
- Reliability enhancement
- A complete serial M&C-system is built into the unit. A remote external controller is available to operate the HPA from a user selected location.
- Compact, Self-Contained Design
- Short Waveguide Run for Low Loss Operation
- Weatherized for -40°C to +50°C/+60°C Operation, No Shelter Required
- Low Cost Installation and Maintenance
