Paradise 7RU SSPA
Paradise Datacom’s Indoor, High Power Rack Mount (R)
series SSPAs represent the industry’s highest power density
and most reliable high power amplifier systems.
The High Power Rack Mount SSPA employs a modular design,
which allows quick and easy replacement in the event of a
catastrophic failure of one of the SSPA components. These
modular assemblies include: hot-swap SSPA modules, front and
rear fan trays; and a rear panel controller card. These amplifiers
are powered via a separate power supply chassis.
The power supply is configured as a n+1 redundant, hot
swappable, power supply comprised of three modules. Only two
modules are required to operate the HPA, therefore one module
is redundant. In the event of a power supply module failure, the
amplifier system will not fail. The module can then be changed
without ever taking the HPA out of service.
Power Supply Options
The 7RU Chassis may be fitted with a variety of power supply options. The dual 1RU power
supply configuration provides redundancy with all power levels; or may be used as a non
-redundant supply by utilizing fewer power supply modules. The stand-alone 1RU power supply
can be used to power the 750W C-Band or 400W Ku-Band chassis. The standard 3RU,
three-module power supply offers redundancy for all power levels.
Hot Swappable SSPA Modules
Four SSPA modules are phase combined inside the 7RU Rack Mountable SSPA to produce
the amplifiers total output power. Each of the SSPA modules is hot-swappable, allowing the
unit to remain in service while a failed SSPA module is replaced.
The chassis front panel is removable to access the SSPA modules, even while the unit is in
