High Power Amplifiers
Codan’s Power Amplifiers are reliable, affordable and designed to be used with our range of transceivers.
The 3061 provides 500 W and the 3062 delivers 1 kW Peak Envelope Power (PEP) output power. Both are ideal for voice and data operation.
Codan’s High Power systems suitable for voice and data operations are rated for 500 W and 1KW PEP operation, catering to the demand for competitively priced, multi-channel base station packages.
NGT transceiver interface
Codan’s NGT transceivers provide you with a simple interface to control and operate the Power Amplifiers.
Continuous mode operation
The amplifiers are rated for 100% continuous operation in all modes for either voice or data applications.
Advanced switched mode power supplies maximise efficiency of the amplifiers and reduce heat.
Protection and backup
Codan’s Power Amplifiers are fully protected against all load conditions and excessive heat sink temperatures.
Antenna tuner interface
The amplifiers provide an interface to control an external antenna tuner or coupler.
For increased reliability and durability, fans are thermostatically controlled and operate on two speeds depending on the heatsink temperature.
Both amplifiers and associated power supply units can be used in 19″ rack mount configurations and are 5RU high.
