GREEN RF™ technology
The GREEN RF™ technology, combined with the new 65:1 devices, is the latest evolution of the world-famous patented COLD-FET™ technology:
High RF efficiency (>70%).
Lower AC power consumption.
Hot-Plug Solution (optional)
All FM amplifiers KFG series over 5kW can be equipped optionally with the hotplug system to instantly extract the amplifier modules with amplifier in full power. All the amplifier modules slide on telescopic rails and can be completely extracted and removed for on-air maintenance or replacement without disconnecting any cable and without interrupting the transmitter operation.
An intelligent protection circuit reduces the output power without on-air interruption, keeping the RF devices always within the safe operating parameters in case of:
Failure in one or more amplification modules.
Failure in power supply modules.
High efficiency cooling system
The air cooling system limits the heat-sink temperature rise to only about 10°C above ambient temperature. This guarantees the properly functioning even at high temperatures and in sites with extreme climate conditions.
Hot Swappable Power Supply Units: It makes easier the serviceability and the maintenance. Their tool-less and instant installation from front panel make the PFG NEXT transmitters ideal for critical environment systems where no down time can be tolerated.
Automatic Current Sharing (ACS): the automatic current balancing system is present on each unit to grant a perfect load distribution and very best power supply operating conditions.
FM amplifiers KFG series oversized air cooling system widely extends transistor life. The amplifier modules are equipped with externally mounted redundant fans to allow easy and fast cleaning, or eventual replacement, without opening or removing any module and without interrupting the transmitter operation.
An oversize heat exchanger, single or double (optional), suitable for outdoor or indoor installation, and equipped with single or double (optional) pump system for maximum redundancy, is the main component of the powerful liquid cooling system. DB liquid cooling
system assures high reliability, cooling efficiency and easy installation, thanks to the special design of liquid cooled heat-sinks inside the amplifier and low pressure liquid distribution. This system is designed to successfully face every hard climate condition.
Advantages of liquid cooling
Substantial advantages of our liquid cooling technology compared to air cooling are:
Properly working even with hard climate conditions.
Dramatically reduction of air conditioning needing.
Correct functioning in dusty environment even with high humidity or salinity.
Very low acoustic noise.
Low heat radiation into the environment.
Longer life for transistors and active elements due to colder continuous operation.
Prevents corrosion from air moisture and increases reliability.
Components are made in anticorodal aluminum.
Air is ducted to avoid contact with electronic parts.
All electronic boards and cablings are tropicalized with a special resin to protect the circuits against salt air.
