Ampegon says its shortwave transmitters incorporate recent advances in their control, motor drive tuning and measurement acquisition systems.
The new Ampegon UCS (Universal Control System) transmitter control system is a connecting link between user and transmitter, with a selection of functions and detailed transmitter information. It interacts with various subsystems and performs required measurements.
The company says the tuning system, with DC motor technology, allows faster, more accurate positioning of transmitter tuning circuits, with digital control. This allows comfortable, automated frequency changes. In order to achieve required measurements, the simplified measurement acquisition system captures measurements in real time for data display, data logging and data analysis; this leads to more efficient maintenance and fewer spare parts requirements, Ampegon says.
Remote control options support flexibility of the overall transmitter system by ensuring independent control and operation.
