Airborne TWT PS

Airborne TWT Power Supply 1800W

Airborne TWT Power Supply

The POL1800WA is specifically designed to meet high altitude airborne applications greater than 50,000. Polarity offers models suited for all major airborne platforms where size, weight, and performance are critical.

Outstanding thermal design ensures reliable operation to base plate temperatures of +85deg C. The POL1800WA offers a design with industry leading reliability and a design that ensures rugged performance that is unmatched.

High efficiency modern user multi-collector designs meet the demands of today’s complex systems and offer the ability to effectively power manage increasingly challenging requirements for airborne communication and radar systems.

Optional features are a ultra high frequency grid modulator (500KHz), FE control switch, ultra low noise EMI/EMC, pulse droop compensation, ultra low pulse to pulse distortion, and a smaller lighter enclosure. Higher output power can be provided through optional liquid cooling. The communication protocol can be either serial RS485 or discrete control.
