TWTA, SSPA & KPA Controllers
Comtech Xicom amplifiers are complemented by a full suite of control system solutions available in 1:1, 1:N, and variable phase combined configurations.
Comtech Xicom offers a touch screen control interface for outdoor amplifiers. The LCD touch screen provides an easy-to-use interface for monitoring and controlling SATCOM power amplifiers in an industry-standard 19-inch wide rack-mount configuration. The new touch screen front panel displays the HPA’s operational status including power output and temperature, graphical displays of parameter trend analysis, and event logs. Local and remote diagnostics can also be easily performed via an Ethernet interface. This new display eliminates the need for separate external controllers for common architectures because it can show and control waveguide switches and a combiner, providing both cost and space savings. Another valuable feature is that all operational data is saved within the amplifier’s non-volatile memory, providing a complete history of the HPA in the event that the unit needs service or repair.

New XTC-114E for EF Data and Xicom Amplifiers/BUCs
The new XTC-114E controller is a 1RU ethernet based controller for Xicom and CEFD amplifiers and BUCs. It can control up to 2 switches, so it is ideal for most 1:1 and 1+1 system configurations. It is targeted at low power BUCs which do not have space for an RS-485 interface and may lack built-in redundancy control. It is ideal for small size and low-cost installations with 1 RU height and only 10” depth. It includes redundant AC power supplies and supports a Web browser interface via an ethernet connection.
