The 2194 from Empower RF Systems is a Solid Sate High Power Amplifier that operates from 1000 to 3000 MHz. The amplifier provides a saturated output power of 250 Watts with a power gain of 54 dB. It is ideal for octave bandwidth high power CW, modulated, and pulse applications. This amplifier utilizes high power GaN devices that provide wide frequency response, high gain, high peak power capability, and low distortions. Exceptional performance, long-term reliability and high efficiency are achieved by employing advanced broadband RF matching networks and combining techniques, EMI/RFI filters, and all qualified components. It is constructed within one single 3RU drawer including the forced air-cooling. It is available in two variants – One with a 24V DC supply and the other with a 240V 1-Phase AC supply.
The amplifier includes a built-in control and monitoring system, with protection functions which preserve high availability. Remote management and diagnostics are via an embedded web server allowing network managed site status and control simply by connecting the unit’s Ethernet port to a LAN. Using a web browser and the unit’s IP address (IPV4) allows ease of access with the benefit of multi-level security. The control system core runs an embedded OS (Linux), has a built-in non-volatile memory for event recording, and factory setup recovery features. The extended memory option allows storage of control parameters and event logs.
