COM-TECH proprietary and complete solutions, offering practical and efficient components to drive and combine several Power Amplifiers, providing the maximum possible overall efficiency of the Transmitter.
Two different systems, with different techniques, are available:
- Quadrature Multicoupler System (MC Series Multicouplers and QS Series Splitters)
- Progressive Multicoupler System (MH Series Multicouplers and SP Series Splitters)
Both systems include two main components:
- Multicoupler: sums the power of the Amplifiers, and can be conveniently plugged-in at the back of the Power Amplifiers themselves, thanks to the Unified Connector Spacing, which enables connectors to be spaced at a multiple of Rack Units (2U, 3U, 3,5U…). In case of 2-way combination a simple Hybrid Coupler is used.
- Splitter: divides the power into the correct number of outputs, driving the Power Amplifiers with accurately balanced amplitudes and correct phases in order to be subsequently be re-combined by the Multicoupler with the highest possible efficiency
