Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) September 08, 2011
Advantech Wireless, a Canadian-based manufacturer of Satellite, RF Equipment and Microwave Systems today announced the launch of its highest power, 12kW Solid State Pulse Amplifier.
This 12kW Solid State Pulse Amplifier is the first to combine high power with solid state technology in an amplifier that also features Advantech Wireless’ state of the art remote monitoring and control systems. This pulse amplifier operates in the 1.2-1.4 GHz band and contains multiple hot-swappable modules.
This product was created in response to an overwhelming demand in the marketplace for robust, solid-state pulse amplifiers that can be vehicle-mounted. It can be used in military and civilian radar systems. A team of RF and mechanical engineers worked closely with interested customers to include all the features that would be needed once deployed in the field. The most vital feature is the modular design. It allows elements to be hot-swapped without any interruption of service or noticeable reduction in power.
“While this latest addition to Advantech Wireless’ suite of products is a new entry into a differentiated market, Advantech Wireless is confident that its longstanding reputation for high power solid state frequency amplifiers, plus its past accomplishments and expertise in military environments will lead to the quick and successful adoption of this product line,” states David Gelerman, CEO of Advantech Wireless.
The advantage of solid state design over tubes and klystron technology is that it is much better suited for mobile applications. It is more rugged and not prone to damage in transit. It also contributes to increased reliability and ease of maintenance of this amplifier. Advantech Wireless is regularly sought out by integrators, contractors and government agencies to research and develop customized solutions for clients around the globe. The company prides itself on its product development, technical innovation and engineering capabilities in areas of RF, satellite and wireless communications.
