Harris unveils PlatinumCD VHF DTV transmitter

Each PlatinumCD system includes a control cabinet and one to three power amplifer cabinets.

Harris has introduced a new PlatinumCD VHF DTV transmitter that lets its users perform maintenance on-air.

The transmitter uses multiple 1kw MOSFET solid-state RF power amplifier modules that operate in parallel. The transmitter has bar graphs and digital information on an eye-level control panel.

Each PlatinumCD system includes a control cabinet and one to three power amplifier cabinets. The control cabinet houses the system controller, exciter, monitoring and control panel.

Other features include:

  • A Real-Time Adaptive Correction (RTAC) system that provides continuous automative correction of the entire transmitter and RF system

  • A CD 1A 8-VSB exciter

  • Its hot-pluggable solid-state modules provide MTBF of 500,000 hours

  • Prolong transistor life and increase maintenance interval with its positive-pressure isolated air system
