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, Dsubminiature connector.
The system comprises an Amplifier Unit, a Power Controller Unit and a Power Supply Unit. These are installed on telescoping slides into a standard, 19-inch equipment rack, 22 inches wide, 34 inches high, and 38 inches deep. The equipment rack is fitted with heavy-duty swivel casters. Each system component has integral forced-air cooling provided by highly reliable, impeller and/or tube-axial fans.
The Model KAW5060 uses switching-type power supply modules and operates from 187-265 VAC, 47-63 Hz line. Power consumption is 5.5 kVA. The system may be placed in 'stand-by' mode with the BLANKING switch, which greatly reduces energy consumption and heat generation.
