Download Full Data Sheet
The Model KAW4040M12 is a Class AB wideband RF power amplifier system delivering in excess of 500 Watts CW power into a 50-Ohm load over the frequency range of 200 MHz to 500 MHz with custom optimization over the 390 MHz – 410 MHz range. Power gain is a minimum of 57 dB.

The system features forward and reflected power indication on a front panel-mounted, analog meter; Automatic Level Control (ALC); RF gain control; overdrive protection; full VSWR protection; input blanking, and over-temperature protection. On the basic model these features, plus remote power on/off control, are accessible for hard-wire remote operation through a 25-pin, D-subminiature connector. For a detailed description of these features refer to “SPECIAL FEATURES – KAA & KAW-SERIES SINGLE BAND RF POWER AMPLIFIERS”.

The system comprises a Power Controller/Power Amplifier and a Power Supply Unit. These are intended to be mounted into a standard, 19-inch equipment rack and require 15¾ inches of panel space. The units are designed to be installed on optional telescoping slides. The system operates from 187-265 VAC 47-63 Hz. Power consumption is 2.8 kVA. The system may be placed in 'stand-by' mode with the BLANKING switch, which greatly reduces energy consumption and heat generation.
