Modules may be combined to give an arbitrary power level
Frequency and SWR specifications may be customised to suit specialised applications.
|Full Power/(Half Power)|

*Modules tolerate higher mismatches at lower power with protection based on the magnitude of reverse power.
Conservative power ratings. Transistors are operated well within manufacturer limits. Transistors are the latest generation ruggedized types specified to handle 65:1 mismatch. They easily cope with infinite mismatch for short time periods.
The modules feature excellent pulse handling characteristics with fast rise and fall times. Combining is fully isolating to ensure graceful degradation.
Extensive protection systems including:
Low level monitoring via I2C of:
Gain Control via I2C
HF Multi-octave dual directional couplers.
High power filters and associated switching are customised to suit the application. These filters are used to routinely achieve harmonic levels 70dB below the carrier.
Typical filter construction is by way of large cross section copper rod inductors and high power, low loss ceramic capacitors.
Typical switch construction utilises vacuum relays rated to over 100 million cycles.
Schach RF has built filters to handle over 8kW of CW power in the HF range.
