Model 184A

150 kW Magnetron Transmitter

Magnetron Transmitter

The Model 184A Power MOSFET Modulator, Magnetron Transmitter is designed to operate magnetrons up to 75 kW. The pulse width is fixed at 0.25 microseconds, at PRF up to 4 kHz. The Model 184A Modulator is not damaged by magnetron arcs. Arc energy to the magnetron is limited which actually helps to clean-up an arcing magnetron. The Model 184A Modulator is a proven, reliable design which replaces the original Model 184 design with over 30 years of field use. The new modulator HVPS is a very efficient, duty cycle regulated DC to DC converter design. Photographs of the output spectrum and detected RF are included.
