    4. Electrical connections In order to guarantee trouble free operation you should observe the following instructions: 1. The device is only permitted for operation with mains voltages of 180 – 260 Volts AC and frequencies between 50 - 60 Hz. Operation at 100 – 130 VAC 50/60 Hz is generally possible but with lowered specifications.

    5. Front panel operation POWER After switching the “POWER”-switch the amplifier is turned on, which is indicated by the green “ON”-LED. It takes approx. 5 seconds until the internal supply voltage rises up to 50 VDC and releases PTT operation. The HLV-800 has an integrated pfc-controlled switched power supply with an efficiency of >...

    RESET The HLV-800 operation is internally monitored by many highly efficient protection circuits. If any limit is exceeded the device shuts off. If any protection circuit is activated the red “PROTECTION”-LED illuminates as well as one of the three protection circuit LEDs “ANTENNA”, “OVERDRIVE”...

    7. Transmit operation ATTENTION ! This device is for split line operation only. There is no output relay inside. Separate cables for TX and RX must be used. An external output relay can be used with the internal sequencer. SEE Chapter Remote control for more details.

    9. REMOTE control This amplifier can also be remote controlled. RESET- , PREAMP- and PTT- function can easily be activated by an external switch wired to ground. Output power can be monitored. 100% of output power is equal to 10V DC on Pin 5. Remote control HLV--800 Shield 100% power level = 10V DC...
  • Page 12: Cooling Technique

    10. Cooling technique The integrated axial blowers are temperature controlled and provide sufficient cooling during long time operation at full output power with minimum noise level. During the TX period the airflow through the rf box is increased by higher speed of the cavity blower which is noticeable by a slight noise increase.

  • Page 14: Adjustment Of Protection Thresholds

    12. Adjustment of protection thresholds In some cases the default adjustments are too sensitive and need some slight correction. In the picture below all trimpots incl. their functions are shown. Turning the slots clockwise is equal to + or upward direction and verse vice. Readjustment should be done very carefully otherwise the effect of protection is cancelled.
