2kW Cathode Pulsed C Band Amplifier
The POL2000C offers high speed performance with its rack mount pulsed and CW amplifier. Building upon Polarity’s previous design and high modulation rates, the new C band pulsed TWT amplifier can run continuously at rep rates above 10KHz and short bursts at 20kHz. This TWTA amplifier is ideally suited for mid-range radar and EW systems. The POL2000C transmitter covers a frequency range of 5.85 GHz to 6.725 GHz and provides 2000 watts of peak power at 1% to 100% duty. This TWTA radar transmitter was designed for either ground mobile or airborne systems.
The TWTA has a strong serial interface that communicates to a military proven MCU. The MCU provides advanced sync and control options and can be easily reconfigured to custom applications. A rich control protocol provides serial RS232/422/485, ethernet, and advanced user-friendly communication for data logging and cost-effective maintenance.
Outstanding thermal design ensures reliable operation from ambient temperatures of -40C to +85deg C. The POL500Ka – P offers a design with industry leading reliability and its power supply design ensures rugged performance that is unmatched. This high efficiency transmitter design meets the demands of today’s complex pulsed microwave radar systems.
The POL2000C offers a design with industry leading reliability and rugged performance that is unmatched. With more than 40 years of high power supply design experience, Polarity amplifiers continue to lead the industry in weight, efficiency, and performance.
