Acom 2000A Automatic HF Linear Amplifier Kurzwellen Endstufe
The ACOM 2000A is the first amateur HF amplifier to include both fully automatic tuning and sophisticated digital control capabilities. This revolutionary new amplifier delivers maximum legal power in all modes and operates on all HF amateur bands. A New Standard in Amplifier Features and Performance The ACOM 2000A represents a major advance in the state-of-the-art in HF amplifier design.It changes forever the way radio amateurs employ HF power amplifiers in their stations. Instantaneous, automatic tuning makes slow, cumbersome band changes a thing of the past. A built-in, wide-range antenna tuner matches loads with high VSWR (up to 3:1), often eliminating the cost and complexity of an external, high-power antenna tuner. RS-232 digital control permits full integration into any computer-driven station configuration. Advanced protection circuits ensure amplifier safety under every potential combination of operating conditions.
Remote diagnostic features and modular design ease fault isolation and repair. Cutting-Edge Technology Enhances a Classic Design. At the core of the ACOM 2000A is a classic HF amplifier design, employing two Svetlana 4CX800A (GU74B) high performance ceramic metal tetrodes operating in a grid-driven configuration. This design was chosen for its inherent stability and extremely low production of spurious emissions.
ACOM coupled this tried-and-true configuration with todays most advanced digital control technology to create an amplifier with outstanding performance, features and reliability. Measured typical IMD are - 40dB (3-rd order) and - 45dB (5-th order). Classical Pi-L network, all-air coils (no ferrite), and carefully designed layout of the output tank offer typical harmonic emissions as low as - 55dBc (second) and below - 70dBc (third and above). Thus, probability of QRM, BCI or TVI is dramatically minimized. The automatic tuning features in the ACOM 2000A represent a real breakthrough in HF amplifier design.Never think about an ATU for VSWR up to 3:1 (2:1 on 160 m). Matching the actual antenna impedances to the optimum tubes load is completely automated. It is now possible to change bands without a moments thought.
All tubes voltages and currents, supply voltages, overheating, overdrive, insufficient flow of cooling air, internal and external RF arcs (in the amplifier, antenna selector, tuner or antennas), T/R sequencing, antenna relay contact hot switching, antenna matching quality, reflected power, stored data, inrush power-on current, and cover interlock for operator safety. Antenna matching can be achieved in less than 10 seconds and at a quarter of nominal output power, which produces lower risk of interference to other stations and greater safety to the amplifier components.
