The ESSPx is the outdoor solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs) series designed and manufactured by Elber with GaN transistor technology, with output power from 50W up to 400W. Available also as SSPB, with in-house designed upconverter, the ESSPA-Ku400 is the 400W Ku-band version.

The ESSPx is an integrated unit, comprehensive of power supply and cooling system, housed in a weatherproof cabinet for safe outdoor installation and operation. Safe operation is preserved also through automatic software/hardware shutdown of final stages in case of overtemperature, over-current and high reflected power.

The amplifier is equipped with precise forward and reflected power detection circuitry for correct configuration and monitoring of the amplifier. Combination of basic pallets is just mechanical through waveguide combiners, so that performances can be easily replicated for massive production. Management of the unit can be done either locally and remotely through serial Ethernet connection.

A redundancy kit is also available, with autonomous management of 1:1 solution or optionally with external Master control unit, through Cleber platform (one control unit for 2 amplifiers).
