Best of Show: Rohde & Schwarz THR9

Liquid-cooled HD Radio-compatible box is aimed at high-power jobs

Rohde & Schwarz was making a bold move when it chose to use liquid cooling for its THR9 FM transmitter family.

The HD Radio-compatible box is aimed at high-power jobs — up to 40 kW per rack — with efficiency that the company says is up to 75 percent. R&S says the combination of liquid cooling and power efficiency is superior and cheaper “compared to air-cooled systems and their power-hungry, complex cooling infrastructure.”

The TH9 also allows for multiple independent transmitters to be placed into a single liquid-cooled modular rack for even more efficiency and savings. Thomas Loichinger, left, accepts.
