The XT-100 is a compact, self-contained, antenna mountable TWT power amplifier designed for low cost installation and long life. Intended for outdoor operation, the need for a separate amplifier shelter is eliminated. In addition, the distance between the amplifier and the antenna feed horn can be short, thus RF output power is not wasted. RF filters and cooling systems are all self-contained within the package. As a result of improved cathode technology typically used on space and military TWTs, the XT-100 tube has a design life in excess of ten years. These features have been incorporated to provide overall reliability and lower maintenance and replacement costs.
The XT-100 incorporates high efficiency, dual-stage collector TWTs. Some of the benefits of this type of TWT are: reduced prime power consumption, lower internal operating temperatures, and reliability enhancement. These benefits are obtained for both the linear and saturated modes of operation.
A high frequency resonant conversion power supply is used that accepts a wide range of prime power (100 to 260 VAC.) A remote external controller is available to operate the amplifier from a user selected location. The XT-100 may be configured for single-thread, redundant, or phase-combined.
