Codan 3160 Military HF Amplifier

Codan HF Military Power Amplifier 125 W OUTPUT POWER, 1.6 TO 30 MHZ

Complementing the exceptional features of a 2110M,2110T transceiver the Codan 3160 Power Amplifier increases the output to 125 W across the full HF spectrum.
The output power can easily be changed between 125 W, 25 W or 5 W from the transceiver front panel.


Packed into a small and rugged unit the 3160 is designed for installation fl exibility through its fl ange mount design and optional mounting bracket system.


The 3160 Power Amplifi er meets or exceeds environmental specifi cation for shock, vibration, dust and immersion. It also provides complete protection against reverse polarity, over voltage, antenna mismatch and over temperature.


Specifically designed for the 2110M series transceiver, the Codan 3160 HF Power Amplifier is simple to confi gure and operate. When connected to a 2110M transceiver the 3160 is automatically detected at power on and ready to use.
In the event of PA failure the combined system will automatically bypass the PA block to ensure continued operation at 25 W. The Codan 3160 Military Power Amplifier’s operational status can be viewed on the 2110M,2110T front panel display.


The 3160 supports 100% duty cycle for normal speech or data operation.
