S-Band Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPA)

Outdoor (Antenna Mount), 50W - 100W

These high power solid-state amplifiers offer output powers of 50 or 100 watts across the standard 2.0 to 2.15 GHz satellite uplink band. Housed in a compact, weatherproof enclosure, the amplifiers can be mounted in an antenna hub or outdoors in applications where it is desirable to reduce cable losses by mounting the SSPA close to the antenna. The amplifiers feature a microprocessor-based M&C system that facilitates easy setup and control.
