PTEK will tell attendees about its upcoming Smart Series of affordable, hot-pluggable transmitters, which are made in America and will be upgradeable to digital.
Systems will be available at 3.5, 5 and 10 kW levels. The transmitters can be configured for linear operation when required. Included are RF modules, hot-pluggable switching power supplies with two built-in USB ports and optional Web interface, all accessible from the front panel. The design is compact for accessibility and quick installation.
PTEK also will promote its Solid-State FM Transmitter/Exciter Series, available in 150–500 watts of power. Each unit has built-in stereo generator and FSK ID for translator use. A built-in remote control interface allows use of current remote control systems. Frequency stability is ensured by using PLL frequency synthesis from a stable crystal oscillator.
The new Solid-State FM Kilowatt Series offers a selection of 1 kW to 10 kW power amplifiers and transmitters. Included is a combination of 1 kW power amplifier modules (depending on output power) a combiner, exciter and optional 19-inch rack cabinet. Each 1 kW module can be operated independently for greater flexibility. The PAs feature redundant power supplies and proportional VSWR fold back, protecting the unit by automatically reducing output power to a safe operating level. Over-temperature protection and multiple cooling fans are provided. The built-in low-pass filter provides a clean RF output.
