New SSPAs Enter The Realm Of Paradise

Paradise Datacom SSPA webpage Paradise Datacom has released their PowerMAX family of Solid State Power Amplifiers.

PowerMAX is the industry’s first fully scalable, soft-fail SSPA system designed to achieve power levels of 8 kW in C-band, 6 kW in X-band, and 4 kW in Ku-band. Some of the features include:
  • Passive combining via Paradise Datacom’s proprietary network
  • Field-scalability - start with four modules and grow to eight or sixteen as the demand for more power increases
  • Accurate “true-RMS” RF output power monitoring
  • Modules are “hot-swap” removable through front panel
  • Embedded power-monitoring software senses module failure and adjusts total system output power to compensate instantly for applications that require constant output power – no switching required
  • Ethernet monitor and control
  • Front / rear panel removable fans
  • Redundant, Hot-swap modular power supplies
