LD Series
UHF TELEVISION SOLID STATE TRANSMITTERS 

 
 




 
     
   
  • New LDMOS technology. Using the latest LDMOS technology and new PA module design, the RF amplifiers are extremely rugged and exhibit excellent thermal characteristics. Linearity and IMD performance are better than older bi-polar technology. This means an excellent transmission quality with analogue or digital operation.
  • Digital upgradeable. Each LD's series transmitter is upgradeable for digital transmission. Optional kits are available for easy field digital upgrading. This reduces the cost of later upgrade to digital while providing the best quality of analogue service currently available

UHF TELEVISION SOLID STATE TRANSMITTERS 

 
     
 
  • Frequency-agile. LD series transmitters are fully broadband. All RF stages ahead of the output filters can operate on any UHF channel, selectable via a digital selector.

  • Modular assembly. Easy removable identical and interchangeable power amplifier modules and power supplies reduce spare requirement and service costs.

  • On-air serviceability. Power supplies and power amplifier modules can be safely removed during operation, for on-air maintenance. Failure or module removal keep always transmitter on-air.

  • High redundancy. High on-air reliability is assured by using multiple power amplifier modules, each comprised of six individual PA's, with independent power supplies and optional dual exciters.

  • Low maintenance. The overall operating costs are reduced and the maintenance is optimised for two year intervals thanks to the absence of wear-out mechanism in solid state devices.

  • Power supply.. A rugged, high-efficiency (> 93%) power supply support each PA module and can be on-air removed and replaced. Power supplies are protected from incoming AC line overvoltage, overcurrent, transient and lightning. 

  • Advanced controller provides full front panel transmitter control capabilities and extensive metering of individual modules. Standard or special remote control interface is also available.

  • Cooling. An oversized standard air cooling system with internal fans extends transistors life. In the standard version, air enters trough removable filters in the front panel of each PA and power supply module. Air is exhausted from the rear of cabinet or from the top (optional). A special version is also available when it is necessary to separate transmitter cooling air from building air.

  • Meets or exceeds all international standards for safety and electrical requirements.
