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
