The Paradise Datacom 4RU Indoor Rack Mount Series SSPA
represent the latest in High Power Microwave Amplifier
The SSPA chassis achieves the highest power
density in the industry along with enhanced maintainability.
Local, front panel, control is available with a user friendly
interface. Five fault condition LEDs on left side of the front
panel reflect some of the SSPA major faults states, plus a
summary fault indicator. The SSPA online LED turns green
when the amplifier is in Online mode (1:1 Mode) or serves as
an AC power indicator in standalone mode. Local/Remote and
Mute/Unmute LEDs show the current control mode and mute
state of the amplifier.
A full compliment of serial and parallel (contact closure) control
is also available from the rear panel. Paradise Datacom's
WindowsTM-based Universal M&C software allows monitor and
control of the SSPA from a remote computer.
A state of the art thermal platform provides efficient cooling for
the amplifier module and power supplies. This ensures the
highest possible MTBFs for microwave power amplifiers.
Along with high reliability comes the ultimate in amplifier
maintainability. Amplifier modules and power supplies are
easily accessed making this one of the easiest amplifier
assemblies to maintain in the field.

Redundant Power Supply Option
The combination of a separate +12 VDC output, fully redundant power supply is an excellent
means of obtaining the ultimate system reliability.
The power supply is an N+1 redundant configuration meaning that there is one more power
supply module available than is required to operate the SSPA. A failure of one power supply
module will not take the amplifier off-the-air.
In addition the power supply modules are removable from the front panel while in operation.
There is never a need to remove the power supply chassis from the equipment rack.
Weighing only 9 lbs. (4 kg) and occupying only 1 rack unit of cabinet space, the redundant
power supply chassis is an excellent companion to the SSPA chassis.
The power supply has a single phase, universal AC input ranging from 90-265 VAC, 47-63
Hz. It is power factor corrected to 0.99. Depending on the power requirements of the SSPA,
the power supply is configured with two, three or four 1200W hot-swappable modules, each
of which weighs 5 lbs. (2.3 kg).
