Liquid Cooled HPA Products Simplify Implementation and Maintenance
Cooling technology has come a long way driven by advances in computer servers, and SATCOM systems are now able to take advantage of these reliable, low-cost products developed for data centers and integrated by Xicom into high-power SATCOM amplifiers. The SuperCoolTM family of amplifiers has many practical advantages over traditional air-cooled amplifiers including: reduced heat load in hubs; flexible and more compact installation; ease of service and maintenance; higher reliability; ambient noise reduction; and gain stability over ambient temperature. The new Comtech Xicom design incorporates integrated cooling channels in the amplifier baseplate, external to the sealed high voltage and RF circuitry compartment, with drip-free connections. Elimination of the need for air flow provision dramatically simplifies hub layout and design, and provides more space for maintenance operations and additional equipment.
From the hottest spots to the coldest sites, operators want the improved performance and easier maintenance that our SuperCoolTM liquid cooling technology offers.
