COTS Design - Tested Tough to Mil Standard 810

September 28, 2017

Empower RF Systems' 1 kW Power Amplifier Tested Tough to MIL STD 810 - RF CafeEmpower's tested and field proven rugged design is common across all our Next Generation Family of amplifiers and is the result of our patented architecture and design goal to minimize RF power losses along the internal signal path, simplify manufacturing and provide for ease of servicing. The consequence of this elegant electro-mechanical compact structural design is a COTS amplifier that is inherently durable. Empower's family of solid state power amplifiers is thermally and structurally designed to meet today's stringent and harsh operating conditions both in the Military and commercial market.

 

Watch Video of Shock and Vibration Testing

Empower Model 2126 - Mounted in the text fixture undergoing 40g shock testing while operating uninterrupted at full rated output power. Keep in mind this is not a custom design. This is our COTS model with a dust filter added. What you're seeing in the video is MIL-STD-810E Method 514.4 vibration 40g Peak while operational for 270 minutes in each axis. The unit also passed Shock - MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5 3 Axes, Quantity 18 pulses per direction 11 msec Sawtooth Pulse / 40g Peak.

 

A Peek Inside

Empower RF Systems 2126 - RF CafeOur COTS amplifier architecture includes advances in RF and digital PCB signal routing that allows us to eliminate virtually every internal connector, RF cable and electrical harness. This makes the amplifier fundamentally rugged, reliable, improves RF efficiency and is available on all of Empower Next Generation systems.
