Description

Eddystone XA500 – High-Performance 500W FM Amplifier

The Eddystone XA500 FM power amplifier is a true epitome of excellence, showcasing state-of-the-art design and construction techniques. This amplifier is meticulously crafted to deliver unrivalled performance, precise control, effortless monitoring, and minimal maintenance. Remarkably, all of this is packaged in a sleek 3U chassis, weighing a mere 23 kilograms.

The XA500 boasts a wideband design, eliminating the need for manual tuning, and streamlining the installation process. Adhering to EBL’s renowned engineering standards, the XA500 features the innovative “fresh-air-tunnel” concept equipped with dual fans for efficient heat dissipation. These fans efficiently cool the custom-designed heat sink with unfiltered airflow, reducing the frequency of filter replacements. This airflow design is purposefully aimed at minimizing contact with sensitive components, thereby keeping them free from dust and contaminants. For demanding environments requiring additional air filtration, clip-on filter kits are readily available. These kits can be conveniently attached to the external PSU and RF sections of the XA500.

System Overview:

The XA500 integrates one hot-pluggable, high-grade switching power supplies on the front panel. These telecoms-grade units have an established track record for reliability, even in the harshest and most hostile environments.

The front panel of the XA500 features an LCD that provides real-time readings of forward and reflected power, internal voltages, and temperature. Quick-view LED indicators offer immediate status information, covering CPU health, system status, and external mute. The rear panel includes a remote control and monitoring socket, facilitating carrier muting and status signalling to an external system. Furthermore, data sockets are thoughtfully provided for interfacing with systems equipped to control exciters via RS232 or TCP/IP.

The XA500 is built using meticulously selected components and switch-mode power supplies, ensuring exceptional reliability and outstanding efficiency. This harmonious blend of cutting-edge technology and top-tier engineering positions the XA500 as the premier choice for FM amplification.
