At only 2 RU and about as deep as its wide, the PA1000 V2 breaks all the rules on 1 kW amplifier size. But the compact form factor is only one of the reasons BW Broadcast’s most advanced FM amplifier combines high performance and value for those who can’t afford to buy anything but the best.
Using the same core technology as BW Broadcast FM transmitters, the PA1000 V2 1200-watt FM RF amplifier is exceptional value for stations who demand nothing but the best performance. When paired with a BW Broadcast exciter, or other top-quality model, the unique design of the PA1000 V2 contributes unsurpassed reliability to low-power FM transmission systems.
Compact, lightweight and efficient, the PA1000 has an adjustable output from 25 to 1200 watts. Also available is the BW Broadcast PA600 V2, adjustable from 25 to 600 watts. Internal harmonic filtering keeps your RF signal clean and compliant with all applicable CE, FCC and EU regulations.
The PA1000 V2 was the first BW Broadcast amplifier to include BW Broadcast’s novel gold-clamp transistor technology, along with a slide in power supply, so that the most vulnerable components can be replaced in the field in minutes with no special tools.
The graphical LCD controller eases the management of power, as well as monitoring of key system variables. The rear panel has a BNC connector for RF input and RF output is via an N-Type socket.
The PA1000 V2 is based on modern MOSFET devices that are simple, stable and efficient. High power fans draw fresh air through the transmitter’s heatsink to keep the transistor and amplifier cool.. Amplifiers are protected from damage by temperature control systems and antenna fault (VSWR) monitoring which react to faults by reducing the output power to a safe operating level, keeping you on air rather than shutting down completely.
An RS232 control and monitor system can be managed from a standard terminal program or BW Broadcast’s included Windows application.
