“ND SATCOM’s quality engineering and flexible design enable customers from broadcast to medicine to choose among multiple off-the-shelf HPA variants – different power classes, frequency bands, chassis types, and BUC and Linearizer options – with quick delivery time,” said Michael Weixler, Director of Product Management & Training. “We have also refined size and performance, offering the smallest indoor chassis (3U in all power classes), 3dB less fan noise and 10% less power consumption. Both form and function are critical to how we innovate and deliver on our customer promise of installing reliability.”
ND SATCOM has a longstanding relationship with the German company WORK Microwave and offers WORK’s superior quality L-band BUC as an option. For customers who opt for ND SATCOM’s Linearizer, it provides a larger operating power range with typically 1dB less back-off required. These additions further enhance overall power and performance.
