The PS Series is available in 2,000–5,000 watt versions. These transmitters are 80% efficient and are quick and easy to install.

The PS Series achieves 80% efficiency with LDMOS based amplifiers. This results in a low cost of ownership. There is also additional cost savings resulting from the lower heat generation of these amplifiers. Less power is lost to generated heat and thus less power is required by HVAC systems to cool the transmitter building. The electric power savings in this design are significant.

Also featuring an extremely compact footprint without sacrificing maintainability. 1,000 watt power amplifier modules keep the PS Series reliable and, coupled with the hot pluggable power supplies, ensure you stay on air—making maintenance a breeze. The power supplies are independently operated, load sharing and removable from the front of the unit while it is operating.

The PS Series is specifically designed to answer customer demand for a small, highly dependable transmitter that is economical to purchase, quick to get on air, and easy to maintain.
