SPE EXPERT 1K-FA
1 KW Solid State Fully Automatic Linear Amplifier
- The smallest in the world
Built–in Power Supply and Automatic Antenna Tuner
Dimensions: W 28, H 14, D 32 cm (W 11.02”, H 5.51”, D 12.60”) (connectors included)
approx. 20 Kg Kg (19 Kg
typ.), 44 lbs (41.8 lbs typ.).
- The most technologically advanced in the world
are used, one of which is dedicated to the transceiver
interface requirements (CAT).
Pi-L output circuit.
Over 13000 lines of software for performance that cannot be found in any other amplifier.
- Fully Automatic
connection with all models "ICOM, YAESU, KENWOOD, TEN-TEC, FlexRadio ELECRAFT" for immediate management of the bands, tuner and antennas.
performance with all makes or homemade rigs.
The operator has only to move the “Frequency Tuning Knob” in the transceiver!!!
- Wide frequency coverage
1.8 MHz to 50
MHz including WARC Bands.
- Full solid state
1 KW pep SSB out.; 900 W pep CW out (typ.) ; 700 W pep out. (typ.) on
FULL / HALF
power selected according to the operator SSB/CW power requirement, for digital modes and for linear protection (automatic).
No heating time, immediately ready!
Virtually limitless life of the amplification devices (MOSFETs)!
- Automatic Antenna Tuner built-in
matching 3:1 SWR on HF, and 2.5:1 SWR on 6 meters.
Capable of programmable switching of 4 antennas (SO239 connectors).
Up to two antennas for the same band.
Antennas, Tuning conditions are changed in 10 msec.
Bands, Antennas and Tuning conditions are managed also in “STBY“ to support the exciter only.
- Two inputs available
- High power gain (16 dB)
In “OPERATE“ the required drive power is automatically set with an ALC connection and
in “STANDBY“ the exciter is then automatically reset to full power
- Very clean and low distortion output
than -50 dB ( 50 MHz –60 dB ).
3rd order distortion (two tone test) 36 dB typ.
- Input 50 ohm always perfectly matched
SWR less than 1.2:1.
- Fully protected
Temperature, Over Voltage, Over Current, SWR, Reflected Power, Max RF Tuner Voltage, Over Drive, Amp.
The correct parameters are continuously monitored.
protections are realized in two different ways:
· Via hardware (HW), to assure great speed.
· Via software (SW), to assure great accuracy.
Thanks to the SW, transmit relay changeover
is carried out with zero current at the contacts.
- Full break-in operation (QSK)
- Normal / Contest operation to optimize the performance
- Very quiet operation
Seven quiet three-speed cooling fans:
· 150 CFM maximum total air flow.
Temperature thresholds for speed change:
· 40°C (104°F), 70°C (158°F) and 80°C (176°F). (normal mode).
· 60°C (140°F) and 75°C (167°F). (contest mode).
· 39 dBa at maximum blower speed.
- Continuos use
"FULL" mode: SSB unlimited, key down 2 minutes.
"HALF" mode: SSB unlimited, key down 5 minutes.
- Regulated power supply, input 230 / 215 / 200 / 115 / 100 Vac
With all input voltages the out power doesn't change.
A well designed grain-oriented, tape-wound toroidal transformer reduces magnetic fields around the amplifier.
- The linear can be switched ON / OFF also switching ON / OFF the exciter
- With a large LCD display is possible to have a great deal of information
W pep out, V pa, I pa, W pep reflected, Power gain, Temperature (°C, °F), SWR, Input setting, CAT setting, Band and other indications including an alarms log.
- Easy to operate
Powerful SW gives you a user-friendly unity.
- RS 232 port for a PC control
A SW is supplied to remote the linear frontal panel.
With a proper protocol it is possible to use this port not only as a remote control but also as a CAT port (useful to link the linear with any customer application).
- Easy transportation
A sturdy carry-bag is supplied for “QSY, FIELD DAY, DX’ PEDITIONS etc.“.
- Certifications :
SPE guarantees all previous data on 14 MHz.
Specifications are subject to change without notice.
