Key facts

  • Even greater efficiency through many years of Doherty experience
  • Highest power density on the market
  • Built on the strengths of the established R&S®THU9 platform
  • Adaptive efficiency optimization for minimized energy costs
  • Future-ready ATSC 3.0 support
  • Efficiency to the Power of Five

Minimizing your operating costs is our passion

The R&S®THU9evo UHF high-power transmitter family heralds the next step towards minimizing operating costs for terrestrial broadcasting. Its overall energy efficiency values of up to 40 % for COFDM and 43 % for ATSC represent all-time highs. The R&S®THU9evo carries forward all the proven strengths of the R&S®THU9 platform. Network operators benefit from low operating costs throughout the product lifecycle.

Features & benefits

  • Energy cost savings of Rohde & Schwarz multiband Doherty technology

    Maximum energy cost savings

    R&S®THU9evo transmitters achieve an energy efficiency of up to 43 % (including the cooling system), once again setting the benchmark in their class. Years of experience and continuous development have given Rohde & Schwarz complete mastery over Doherty technology, which the company has been able to utilize to the greatest advantage.

  • Rohde & Schwarz transmitters have a minimized footprint

    Minimal footprint

    R&S®THU9evo transmitter systems offer maximum power density and can accommodate multiple transmitters in a single rack. This significantly reduces the footprint of the Rohde & Schwarz solution compared with conventional transmitters, allowing operators to substantially reduce site space requirements and rental costs.

  • Rohde & Schwarz high-power transmitters deliver highest reliability worldwide

    Field proven reliability

    Thousands of R&S®THU9 transmitters are in operation around the world. Every day, they are proving that they deliver the highest reliability. This exceptional success clearly demonstrates how the Rohde & Schwarz high-power transmitter platform meets the needs of network operators, both in term of minimizing operation costs and maximizing availability.

  • Rohde & Schwarz transmitters offer pure liquid cooling

    Pure liquid cooling

    The R&S®THU9evo amplifiers' power supplies and first-stage combiners are liquid cooled. This maximizes lifetime and reliability. It minimizes the amount of heat dissipated into the operating room and reduces air-conditioning costs.

  • Be prepared for channel clearance with efficiency optimization from Rohde & Schwarz

    Adaptive efficiency optimization

    The intelligent efficiency optimization maximizes efficiency in changing environments, either at the press of a button or adaptively. When changing channels or adjusting the transmitter power, efficiency optimization ensures that energy costs are minimized at all times.

  • Highly integrated RF combiners made by Rohde & Schwarz

    Low loss RF combiner structure

    In contrast to conventional couplers, the R&S®THU9evo low-loss power combiner is plugging directly into the amplifiers and it comes with integrated coolant distribution. Fewer RF interconnections and the elimination of interconnecting cooling hoses maximizes efficiency and reliability.

  • Future-proof exciter technology from Rohde & Schwarz

    Future-proof exciter technology

    The Rohde & Schwarz exciter solution relies on a pure software based approach that ideally prepares network operators for ATSC 3.0. Based on a high-performance IT server, it enables network operator to optimally leverage the full capabilities of the standard and to flexibly respond to future signal processing requirements.

  • Monitoring signal quality with integrated signal analysis

    Built-in performance analysis capabilities

    The R&S®TMU9evo tracks its performance with built-in analysis capabilities such as efficiency measurement and integrated signal analysis. These features offer instant feedback on operational parameters through a self-monitoring function. This ensures a consistently high quality of service and minimal operational costs.
