New for 2019
The Enigma 550W amplifier is the big brother of our high performance 300W model which has been very popular and received excellent reviews from users around the globe.
This conservatively-rated amplifier is capable of over 600W output power and is mounted on a huge heatsink for long-term reliability and cool running. We've incorporated extra features suggested by you, for example a dual mode bias shut-down input to reduce wasted power whilst the amp is in idle and not keyed, an improved bias temperature compensation network, and an improved thermal sensor for the heatsink. The main PA transistor is one of the newest generation high ruggedness parts from Ampleon, the BLF184XR.
Due to the high power output and careful alignment required, this model will only be available as a fully assembled and tested product.
Please see the full features & specifications below:
- Broadband, no tuning required.
- High quality components & construction used throughout.
- Massive output power - up to 600W.
- On board low-pass filter, excellent spectral purity.
- High gain, just 3W drive needed.
- High efficiency - runs cool.
- Temperature compensated bias for linear operation.
- Massive heatsink for long-term reliability.
- On-board directional coupler for forward & reverse power monitoring.
- On-board temperature monitoring of the heatsink.
- High ruggedness RF transistor capable of operating in to open & short loads.
- Professionally built, tested and aligned in the UK.
