The Empower RF Systems Model 2217 air cooled 8 kW, 20-percent duty cycle pulse amplifier system brings sophisticated monitoring, protection, and control functions to mission critical applications. This intelligent amplifier system with a flexible software and embedded firmware design that can be customized to add mission support capabilities specific to the users integrated system. Remote control and monitoring is included.

The 2217 is based on Empower’s established and field proven Next Generation architecture that is tactically deployed on range and operating in support of critical DOD missions.

The 2217 comes complete with internal directional coupler, external forward and reverse sample ports, and an easy to use web GUI. In depth health monitoring with alarms visible on the front panel are also pushed out via the LAN port.  For critical “on air” applications, the 2217 provides “Graceful Output Power Degradation”, backing down power to a safe operating level in the event of component failure or excessive Load VSWR condition.

Key features include: higher availability and efficiency; best in class SWaP; waveform flexibility; rugged build for mobile deployment; and remote monitoring and control. The amplifier also provides active RF device redundancy.
