HF100 Series

HF100 Series – 10kW HF Wide Band Antenna Matching Transformer

The HF100 series are 10 kW average power silicone cooled transformers suitable for communication or broadcast systems.

The units are housed in a finned cast aluminium tank which provides excellent natural convection cooling. Each casting is subjected to a double vacuum resin impregnation process which ensures complete sealing for the internal low loss silicone cooling oil.

  • Wide band 1.5 to 32 MHz
  • 10 kW average + 100% AM modulation
  • Suitable for communications or broadcast applications
  • Very high efficiency
  • All weather unprotected operation

High purity alumina ceramic insulators with arcing horns are fitted as standard and an integral static drain to earth provides additional protection against lightning induced high voltages.

A wide selection of unbalanced and balanced impedance ratios are available to complement most antenna configurations and enquiries for non-standard arrangements are welcome.

The HF100 is a high quality unit suitable for unprotected operation in any environment.
