Nautel’s 2 megawatt NX2000 medium wave system has been fully commissioned and is now on the air at Antenna Hungaria’s transmission facility near Solt, Hungary. The project involved large infrastructure changes at the site as well as installation of the new transmitter. The NX2000 system incorporates five Nautel NX400 transmitters along with a large, versatile combiner. NXC2000 combiner can be reconfigured if one or more transmitters are shut down, which ensures that maximum power is delivered to the antenna in all cases. Nautel worked closely with Porion Digital KFT on the installation, which included building renovations and air handling modifications as well as interfacing the NX2000 to the facility’s existing 11 kV voltage supply.
The new NX2000 system brings high efficiency (90 percent) and significant power savings. Nautel’s NX transmitters offer a compact footprint for significant space savings. Individual transmitters are available in 100, 200, 300, or 400 kW designs, along with lower power units ranging down to 3 kW. As with all modern Nautel transmitters, control and monitoring are accomplished via Nautel’s advanced user interface (AUI).
