RFI Industries has announced the release of the TMD range of high quality broadband TWT amplifiers manufactured by TMD Technologies of Hayes, Middlesex, UK.
TMD amplifiers cover the frequency range of 0.8 to 18GHz in CW and 0.8 to 40GHz in pulse. The amplifiers are available with output powers up to 500W for CW and up to 10kW for pulse.
The amplifiers have been designed for test and measurement applications, including EMI/EMC testing, radar and EW systems simulation and antenna and high power component testing.
Standard features include extensive power supply and TWT protection, input RF isolator, GPIB interface, input power factor correction, reflected RF power protection, RF output sample port, and solid state pre-amplifier.
By utilising a high efficiency, high frequency switching inverter for power conversion, TMD is able to produce amplifiers that are compact and lightweight (e.g. a 300W,6-18GHz amplifier weighs only 30kg).
TMD amplifiers are based on an easily maintainable, modular design. Low cost of ownership and high MTBF is derived from TMD's development of high technology military amplifiers.
