Post Manual: 15W FM booster+ (new model) Reply with quote
This is the beta version of the manual for the new up-coming 15W booster, coming
in about 1 month together with PCI MAX 2007+. This is the first time we did the manual
before releasing the product and its a good thing, we'll try to do this always.

Regarding the photo, unit was operated at low power output and without antenna. As you can see
the lower bargraph already shows some increased SWR even at this low power setting (upper green row
shows the output power setting). If we were to increase power to the max, entire bottom red row would
illuminate indicating very high SWR due to antenna not being connected.


Technical specifications:
- 15W
- Digital power control (UP/DOWN KEYS)
- Built-in SWR meter with LED bargraph display
- Unit refuses to power-up if more than 15V are used
- SWR foldback protection
- Polarity protection
- TEMP protection
- FAN spins down when its not required
- FAN is now much quieter or not active at all
- New small form-factor, same size as cyber max micro so you can stack them
to create cool setup
- Completely redesigned cooling

Anyway, the manual is beta so the pics will improve. Also, the enclosures are still not finished.

Any comments will be appreciated.

Manual updated, product added to the page. You can now purchase the new booster,
but first units will ship in about 7 days.

Here's a small movie to show how it all works. Its best to save it to a hard disk and than
play with VLC or Windows media player.

Background info:
Our Cyber Max Micro test unit was used to driver the 15W booster+. A dummy load was attached
and SWR/POWER meter Daiwa CN-101L. 15V power supply was used to power the booster.
