OVERVIEW

The Flexiva™ air-cooled FM solid-state transmitter family provides today’s broadcaster with a single transmission platform capable of analog and digital operation. Incorporating field-proven GatesAir technology, Flexiva transmitters deliver world-class performance, reliability and quality.

Flexiva is designed for low- and high-power requirements, up to 80 kW, while utilizing the most compact design on the market today. Flexiva continues the legacy of the highly successful line of GatesAir FM transmitters and combines innovative, new quad-mode RF amplification and software-defined exciter technology to take FM transmission to the next level.

Featuring PowerSmart® technology, the Flexiva line offers unmatched efficiency that makes it ideal for all FM applications. The 50-volt LDMOS device technology delivers a dramatic increase in power density, lower operating costs and reduced cost of ownership over the life of the transmitter.

As the digital transmission leader, GatesAir has developed a solid core competency backed by years of experience in the complex technical areas that are essential for maximum transmitter performance. Customers can also count on GatesAir for implementation, and the company offers a range of support options from standard 24/7 telephone technical assistance and parts to installations, training, full system design and field maintenance contracts.

Main Features of Flexiva™ High Power

  • Identical power blocks for scalability. 5,000 Watts to 80,000 Watts
  • Small and compact. 5 kW or 10 kW power blocks in only 16 rack units
  • Common dual 1800 Watt Power Amplifier and IPA modules for all power levels simplifies spares
  • Single-phase or 3-phase power, Delta or Wye configurations. 190 to 464 VAC
  • 1:1 Power supply to Power Amplifier module maximizes redundancy
  • Hot-Pluggable, hot-swappable power amplifier and power supply modules minimizes down-time and simplifies maintenance
  • Simple, distributed hardware based control architecture uses analog circuits to control critical transmitter functions. Not reliant on a microprocessor for high reliability
  • Hardware based life-support backup controller provides added robustness, reliability
  • Can use any standard FM exciter or can be tightly integrated with FAX low power exciter

Flexiva Family Common Features
