500W Solid State Amplifier 12V mobile covers 10m - 160m
The AL-500MX CE is a european CE certified version of the AL-500MX 240V export model.
Mobile no tune Solid State Amplifier - uses four rugged 2SC2879 high power linear RF power transistors.
Instant band switching, no tuning, no warm up - just turn on and operate - makes mobile QSOs safer.
Very Compact - Just 3 ½" x 9" x 15" - fits in nearly any mobile installation; weighs only 7 pounds.
Extremely quiet - quiet low speed, low volume fan stays off and silent until temperature rises.
Output Power - 500 watts PEP, 400 Watts CW
Continuous Coverage - 1.5 to 22 MHz 10/12 Meters with easy to install optional kit.
Load Fault Protection - disables and bypasses amplifier if antenna has excessively h high reflected power or if band switching is set lower than exciter frequency - virtually eliminates damage because of operating error; has Load Fault LED indicator.
Thermal Overload Protection - disables and bypasses amplifier if temperature is excessively high; automatically resets when temp drop to safe level Thermal Overload LED indicator.
Excellent harmonic suppression - multiple section output network, push-pull output circuit has excellent harmonic suppression.
DC current meter lets you monitor collector current.
ON/OFF Switch - bypasses amplifier for "barefoot" operation without having to disconnect high current power supply cables.
Remote ON/OFF Control - lets you remote control ON/OFF function for out-of-the-way mounting of amplifier.
Exciter Drive - less than 100 watts input gives full output.
Power Supply Requirements - requires 14 VDC at 80 amperes peak current for PA transistors and separate line for 14 - 16 VDC at 4 amperes for control and bias circuits. Made in USA. You can now purchase our ALS-500RC remote control unit for your ALS-500M! If the serial number on your ALS-500M is below 13049, you will need to purchase our ARF-500K remote kit as well.
