About ACOM 1010 - 700W 160-10m Linear Amplifier

The Acom 1010 is a very user friendly and self-monitoring 700w linear amplifier covering 160-10m. and using a single Svetlana 4CX800A (GU74B) high-performance ceramic-metal tetrode for great performance and reliability.

The plate-load True Resistance Indicator (TRI) is an ACOM innovation that provides quick and precise tuning, typically in less than 10 seconds. The auto-operate function will return the amplifier to the OPERATE mode automatically after each protection trip, saving time and avoiding manual switching.

No external antenna tuner is required as long as the antenna VSWR is 3:1 or lower. The amplifier will perform the functions of an antenna tuner, enabling you to change antennas faster and use them over wide frequency ranges.

It is designed to safely withstand up to 240 W of reflected power, up to 100 milliseconds of drive spikes (RF "tails" after a PTT or KEY release), and even operator tuning errors. It is also capable of operating at more than half its designed output power at only 75% of nominal line (mains) voltage. Because it can tolerate deep voltage drops (down to zero for 10 milliseconds) and 15% line voltage spikes, it is particularly suited for use in portable environments, such as field days and DXpeditions.

The upper LED bar-graph always reads peak forward power while the lower LED bar-graph is for the reflected power. LED warning indicators are provided for abnormal conditions of grid 1, grid 2, and plate parameters.

Two antenna outputs are selectable on the front panel of the amplifier.

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.

The amplifier operates without special signaling from the transceiver; it needs only ground on TX- and 60 W RF drive power to operate at full output power.

Broadband input matching circuitry offers excellent loading characteristics for the driving transceiver

A single Svetlana 4CX800A (GU74B) high-performance ceramic-metal tetrode with plate dissipation of 800W (forced air cooling, grid-driven) is used for maximum efficiency.

Design of the high-voltage power supply eliminates the danger of turn-on transients affecting sensitive devices connected to the same line (mains) circuit. Moreover, the amplifier can be configured to accommodate any of 8 nominal line voltages between 100V and 240V, 50Hz or 60Hz.

DELIVERY

We aim to dispatch all parcels within 24hrs. We are normally able to dispatch parcels SAME DAY where orders are received before 2.00pm Monday to Friday.

 

Whilst we try our best to ship same day, we cannot guarantee delivery time. You will however receive tracking details as soon as your order has been processed.

 

Please note that we do not process orders over the weekend, so orders placed after 2pm on Friday will not ship until Monday.

 

Please allow an extra processing day for international orders to enable us to complete export/import custom clearance declarations.
