A fully solid-state shortwave transmitter line with integrated DRM is being launched. Ampegon’s low power solid-state transmitter line ranges from 1.5 kW to 25 kW AM carrier power, and the company said the transmitters are designed and built with solid-state technology in mind from the beginning.
Central to the design is a class E push-pull amplifier concept, which is based on the in-and-out phasing method. The modular combining of amplifiers allows customers to specify transmitters for any power class. The new Ampegon Unified Control System platform (UCS) is used to oversee operation of the transmitter with all the known advantages of a single common interface and in-house platform development, said the company.
