ACOM 1500 HF + 6 Meter Linear Amplifiers

ACOM 1500 HF + 6 Meter Linear Amplifiers

2 Customer Reviews

ACOM 1500 HF + 6 Meter Linear Amplifiers are user-friendly and look after themselves. They are designed to safely withstand up to 300 watts of reflected power and up to 100 milliseconds duration of drive spikes.

These amplifiers also continue to function with "soft" AC mains and will deliver more than half power at only 85 percent of nominal mains voltage. They can withstand voltage drops for up to 10 milliseconds and can tolerate 15 percent mains voltage spikes. This level of tolerance is especially important on Field Day, during DXpeditions, and at portable operating events where emergency power is relied upon. Please see the SPECIAL Note, below.

The True Resistance Indicator (TRI) is a powerful tuning aid that helps the operator to quickly and precisely match the antenna impedance to the optimum tube load impedance. The auto-operate function (when enabled) maintains the amplifier in the OPERATE mode, thus avoiding unnecessary manual operations.

Your ACOM amplifier will enable you to change antennas virtually instantaneously and allow you to use your antennas over wider frequency ranges. Broadband input matching presents a very good load to the transceiver over the entire spectrum of 1.8-54 MHz.

These amplifiers produce virtually-silent QSK. The input bypassing and vacuum antenna relays are virtually silent even in the CW QSK mode; thanks to specially designed mounting hardware.

ACOM 1500 amplifiers utilize a single 4CX1000A ceramic and metal radial-beam tetrode vacuum tube with plate dissipation of 1,000 watts. Tube protection includes permanent monitoring and automatic protection of plate and grid voltages and currents, as well as the exhaust air temperature. These pieces of data are essential to indicate 4CX1000A operating conditions.

All ACOM 1500 amplifier status indications are explained via detailed text displayed on the dot matrix, high brightness, vacuum fluorescent display (VFD). LED indicators are provided for Power, Operate mode, Attenuation-on, Transmit, Selected antenna output, and ON/OFF conditions.
