TWTAs centre stage at EMC show
A wide range of broadband and narrowband medium and high power CW and pulsed TWTAs (Travelling Wave Tube Amplifiers) will be showcased by TMD Technologies at the EMC Exhibition at Newbury (Oct 6-7). Covering a variety of test requirements from DC to 40GHz, with output powers up to 40 kW and using suites of TWT based and solid state amplifiers, the versatile products have applications in the EMC, scientific and medical fields, as well as in passive intermodulation (PIM) testing, telecommunications and EW simulation.
In order to ensure the most effective turnkey EMC subsystems solutions possible, TMD has fostered and maintained close working relationships with antenna and anechoic chamber experts.
The PTC Series of ultra-high power pulsed TWTAs, which has now been further extended and optimised for use in HIRF EMC testing.
Using the PTC Series instrumentation amplifiers, EMC test laboratories have generated 14,000V/m (measured in an anechoic chamber), easily complying with the latest, most demanding RTCA/DO-160 G and L test requirements. Other standards covered include: MIL Standard, EUROCAE and AIRBUS ABD 100.
“In keeping with our philosophy of offering customers the advantages of both tube and solid state technology,” said TMD’s Technical Sales Representative, Imad Gharib, “we have also introduced a full range of solid state amplifiers, operating below 18 GHz and designated the PTCS Series. All our amplifiers offer highest reliability, compact and lightweight design and the ability to customise for special applications.”
TMD has also issued a brand new Product Summary Brochure – showing the increased range and detailing all the new PTCS solid state amplifiers. The new brochure will be available at the show on the TMD Stand, and is now on the company’s website under the Instrumentation Amplifiers section.
