CPI Satcom introduces TouchPower™ 1.25 kW SuperLinear® Ku-band rack-mount traveling wave tube amplif
The Satcom Division of Communications & Power Industries LLC (CPI) has introduced a new TouchPower™ 1.25 kW SuperLinear® Ku-band rack-mount traveling wave tube amplifier (TWTA) at this week’s SATELLITE 2017 Conference and Exhibition in Washington, D.C. CPI’s new high-power, five rack-unit (RU) TWTA is capable of providing 50% more linear operating power than the company’s existing five RU 750 W TouchPower TWTA. The new 1.25 kW rack-mount unit is also more efficient than the 750 W version, and can easily slot in as a formfit-function upgrade in those cases where more linear power is desired.
“To combat rain fade issues, direct-to-home operators have a very real need for higher power broadband amplifiers,” said Gerard Charpentier, CPI Satcom Division’s director of business development for commercial products. “CPI’s newest amplifier more than meets that need by providing the high power required in a package that saves rack space and provides the most advanced interface technology in the industry.”
CPI SuperLinear® TWTAs are optimized for maximum efficiency at linear radio frequency (RF) operating power levels and can be provided in highly efficient redundant or power-combined configurations.
