MODEL NO: NHG-PA-100400-100

GROUND STATION POWER AMPLIFIER

100-400MHz

100W

General: Project involves design, development and supply of VHF/UHF Power Amplifier, Model: NHG-PA-100400100, operating in 118 to 174 MHz and 225-400 MHz, delivering 100 Watts CW/PEP into 50 ohms load. The amplifier is capable of linear amplification of AM/Non-AM R.F. Signals. Realization of Power Amplifier is by multi-stage amplification using linear amplifiers operating in Class A(low power stages ) and Class B (high power stages),

The Power Amplifier Unit operates on 230V, AC, 1Φ, 50Hz supply. Necessary 24 Volts and other D.C. Supplies within the unit. The Power Amplifier is capable of operating into 2:1 load (with respect to 50Ω) at 1:3 (Tx : Rx) duty ratio. The R.F. Circuits are enclosed in metallic housings (connectorised modules) for ease of assembly / maintenance and testing. The Unit employs *D.C. operated (why not AC fan) fans for forced cooling of circuits


Technical Specifications: All specifications shall be valid for: (a) 230Volts ±15%, 50Hz (b) -20°C to +55°C (c) After 8 hours continuous run-in at 1:3( Tx :Rx ) duty cycle
