New transmitters feature improved efficiency, require minimal space

Rohde & Schwarz is showing the THR9 FM liquid-cooled high-power family of transmitters at the 2014 NAB Show. The new line promises maximized energy efficiency and minimal space requirements, explains the firm.

The company also points out that the THR9 FM provides FM output power up to 40 kW per rack while delivering up to 75 percent efficiency to reduce energy costs. And that the transmitter’s liquid cooling system and Multi-TX design, which enables multiple transmitter integration, saves space.
