The AWMA-S series from Advantech Wireless are the hub-mount solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs) intended for satellite up-link applications. The SSPAs operate from 2.025 to 2.120 GHz in the S-band and are available in multiple power configurations from 30 W to 1000 W with a gain of more than 55 dB. Higher power operation may be provided using external phase combining techniques offering an output power up to 1500 W. These weatherproof amplifiers are available in various dimensions with several connector options.
The AWMA-S amplifiers may be configured to operate in 1:1 or 1:2 redundancy mode and no extra controller is required for the redundancy operation. For 1:1 redundancy operation, in addition to the two units (operating and standby) a special redundancy kit is required. For 1:2 redundancy operation another redundancy kit is needed in addition to the three units. The kits include the switches, terminations, splitter, interconnecting cable assemblies and mounting frames. All redundancy systems are delivered fully assembled, integrated, and tested.
