AR Modular RF Introduces Enhanced Heat Sink AR-50 Tactical Booster Amplifier


Bothell, WA -- AR Modular RF has made significant changes to its model AR-50 automatic band-switching RF booster amplifier. The newly released version of this portable lightweight booster amplifier (designed for multi-band VHF/UHF tactical radio equipment) features an enhanced heat sink, which allows for greater heat dissipation. The new design has more and larger fins that improve the unit's thermal capability by as much as 30%.

The AR-50 booster amplifier enhances tactical radio signals from handheld and back-pack transceivers operating in the 30 - 512 MHz band. It provides 50 watts output with as little as 2 watts input and offers two antenna ports dedicated to line-of-sight (LOS) or UHF Satellite (SATCOM). The system also provides a switchable low-noise amplifier (LNA) and a variable RF output level control. The small, compact unit can run from either 12v or 24v vehicle power systems. The original model AR-50, which was introduced last year, has already proven to be an invaluable tool for helping troops to maintain reliable communication even in the worst conditions and harshest environments.
