3RU Compact Rack Mount Solid State Power Amplifiers
The Paradise Datacom Indoor, Compact Rack Mount (CRM) Series SSPAs represent the latest in High Power Microwave
The SSPA chassis achieves the highest power
density in the industry along with enhanced maintainability.
The power supply, fan trays and controller card connector plate are
all removable for easy maintenance. At 24" deep, and only 3RU high, this
chassis is perfect for SNG applications, or other configurations where
rack space is at a premium.
The SSPA front panel features an easy-to-navigate display and menu
structure. Dedicated LEDs are provided for alarm condition indication.
Paradise Datacom rack mount power amplifiers have a wide range of
monitor and control functionality, including:
RS232/485 (4-wire) serial communication
Ethernet port supporting UDP, SNMP and web browser-based control
Form C contacts for output monitor ports and opto-isolated input
Free Windows M&C software
Wide range of third party M&C drivers available

Paradise Datacom offers C-, X-, and Ku-Band amplifiers with an integrated L-Band Block Up
Converter. The L-Band units utilize Paradise Datacom’s proprietary ZBUCTM technology. The
addition of a ZBUC™ to a 3RU Rack Mountable SSPA typically increases the gain by 2-4 dB.
The advantages of ZBUC technology include:
ZBUC can detect and switch to an extenally supplied reference.
Optional internal high stability (10MHz) reference.
ZBUC can lock to an externally supplied reference of 5, 10, 20, 25, or 50 MHz without
ZBUC can accept a wide range of external reference power (-10dBm to +5 dBm)
ZBUC can accept FSK monitor and control signal via the IFL for complete amplifer
3RU SSPA Front Panel With 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
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 rating from 90-265 VAC, 46-63 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).
