The R&S®XK2900L 1000 W HF transceiver
is available as a desktop version or as a
sturdy rackmount for the frequency range
1.5 MHz to 30 MHz. It can be operated
locally as well as remotely via an integrated,
multistandard serial interface. For
the local mode, a user-friendly, large LC
display with backlighting is provided on
the front panel of the R&S®GX2900L
receiver/exciter, i.e. a bright display
together with function-assigned softkeys.
These control elements allow the complete
operation, programming of approx.
400 channels as well as the configuration
of the transceiver via user-specific menus
(incorporated as firmware).
All settings of the transceiver can be
effected via the RS-232-C/RS-485 interface
(integrated and configurable).
The following remote control units can be
R&S®GP2000 remote control processor
R&S®GB2000 remote control unit
Two units can be simultaneously
connected. The associated software
(R&S®Series 2000S) is supplied on a 3.5"
The R&S®XK2900L basic model consists
of the following:
R&S®VK2900 power amplifier
R&S®IN4190 AC power supply
The R&S®GX2900L comes with free slots at
the rear to take up user-specific interface
options for matching the system or user
AC supply operation of the transceiver is
effected by the R&S®IN4190 AC power supply
which can be set to different input
voltages as well as to single- or threephase
networks. Moreover, a 24 V
standby battery can be connected to the
R&S®IN4190 AC, supplying 24 V DC in the
case of power failure so that an interruptfree
operation of the transceiver at
reduced RF power (100 W) is possible.
If the transceivers are operated in DATA mode, i.e. continuously at full transmit power, an integrated blower system, which is switched on automatically when required, ensures trouble-free continuous operation of the transceivers without overheating.
The R&S®GVxx, R&S®FK21xx, and
R&S®GS21xx interface options that are
plugged in at the rear of the
R&S®GX2900L receiver/exciter allow
easy connection or matching to external
options such as a system processor, HF
modem, telephone PABX, detached
duplex or emergency receiver (GMDSS).
Up to four options can be inserted into
the free slots at the rear.
Spacing/interconnections between units
The spacing between the R&S®GXxx,
R&S®VKxx, and R&S®INxx units is determined
by the internal interconnecting
cables. The spacing is 5 m
between the R&S® GX2900L and
R&S® VK2500/2900 and 1 m between the
R&S® VKxx and R&S® IN4150/4190.
