Comtech Xicom Technology... So Hot It's Cool... Liquid Cooled HPA Products Simplify Hubs + Reduce Maintenance

[Satnews] Comtech Xicom Technology extends an invitation to their booth SU 3407 and OE1505 at NAB 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada April 18-21, 2016, to see the latest innovations in high power SATCOM amplifiers. From gateways to tactical military, from ground to airborne, Xicom offers an array of SATCOM TWTA and SSPA products including:

  •  Most efficient Ku-band 400W and 750W peak TWTAs available
  •  SuperPower™TWTAs with the highest power and greatest  
     efficiency anywhere
  •  Continuous Power Systems (CPS) for high output RF power with no
     down time
  •  SuperCool™ liquid cooling technology available in all high power

At NAB, there will be demonstrations showcasing the new SuperCool technology that integrates customized baseplate cooling channels and plug-n-play, drip-free connectors to ensure no leakage or mess on electronics or in hub. Its many practical advantages over traditional air-cooled amplifiers for C-, X-, Ku-, Ka- and DBS-band uplinks include:

  •  reduced hub heat load
  •  more compact, flexible installation
  •  no hub ducting or high-maintenance, low-reliability air conditioner
  •  no fin or fan maintenance on hub HPAs
  •  constant temperature for gain stability and higher reliability
  •  elimination of HPA fan noise
