Overview

The AWMA-K series are the outdoor solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs), operating in Ku-Band frequency range. The amplifier is an integrated unit, complete with power supply and cooling system.  Intended for outdoor operation, the AWMA-4000Kâ is weatherproof. Built-in microprocessor controller provides the capability for serial port interfaces (RS485) for remote monitoring and control.

Advantech’s SSPAs set the industry standard for linearity and operating efficiency. Built-in design features and assembly methods incorporated with efficient combining techniques result in the trouble-free operation of the amplifier.

Application

The SSPAs are designed for Ku-Band satellite up-link applications. They are mounted outdoors, near the hub of an antenna. The AWMA-K series are available in output power from 10W to 500W. For higher power Advantech provides phase-combined systems.

Other SSPAs are available for operation at other satellite frequency bands. With all the features of the AWMA-K, Advantech also offers a built-in converter.

Redundancy

With the addition of the appropriate waveguide and switch kit, the AWMA-4000Kâ amplifiers can be easily converted for the operation in 1:1 redundant configuration with full remote monitor and control capability of the redundant system via serial interface. Single Monitor and Control interface is required to manage redundant system.
