The AC1500 is a single active output amplifier with 43dB operational gain. The used amplifier stages are based on high performance GaN solution that makes the usable gain range especially wide and high output level possible. Integrated interstage gain and slope controls optimise flatness performance and together with a transponder or a pilot detection module add ALSC functionality. Temperature compensating MLSC unit minimises the needed amount of ALSC units. With internal splitting there are 3 separate outputs available.
Elements like ingress switches and return amplifier are built on the motherboard. For upgrading return path to 85 MHz or 204 MHz there is no need to change return amplifier, but only diplex filters and a passive slope and response correction unit. Continuous rotary switch upstream controls are built on the motherboard.
