ANAN-6000DLE

Postby administrator » Mon Jun 01, 2020 1:50 pm

The ANAN-6000DLE is our new addition to the Black Edition Radios, this Radio comes in a miniature extruded Aluminum packaging much smaller that the 7000DLE MKII.

Based on the Orion MKII Platform, this rig boasts of over 103dB DR, Dual ADC receivers for Diversity operation, Large FPGA, 16 Bit Tx chain with 48v LDMOS Finals.

Power Output capable of 50W on HF with additional cooling and 30W on 6M, This rig boasts amazing Tx IMD better than -60dB IMD3.

External DC-DC converter required for operation with a single 13.8v Supply, this converter will be available at an additional nominal cost from Apache Labs.

Abhi,

So this looks to use the Orion MKII as is, not a new board, correct?

Also, it would appear that while the Orion MKII SMA connectors are now directly accessible, you must also be using the parallel micro-coax connectors internally to connect to the RF board, is that correct?

Are there any receive preselectors on the RF board?

Does the RF board have the usual 10 and 20dB receive attenuators on it?

Will the top of the case have any drilled and tapped holes for an additional external heatsink for those who wish to use "additional cooling"?

Is power supply sequencing important? How much current does the 48VDC amplifier input require?

Will there be new versions of PowerSDR and Thetis, or will people just select the ANAN-8000 and ignore the things the 6000 doesn't do like three antenna inputs, etc?

73,

Scott

I also see the 7000DLE MKII with the embedded i7 CPU is back in the product line.

Edit: Well, maybe not...I'm confused. The 7K with the embedded CPU is shown in the "Related Product(s)" list beneath the new 6000DLE listing but it doesn't appear in the Apache Labs homepage under "Current Promotions".

Hi Scott,

Good to hear from you, please see inline below:

So this looks to use the Orion MKII as is, not a new board, correct?

Correct, we aim to keep all current/new rigs on the Orion MKII platform, the board performance has been maxed out using the current chips available and does not make sense to redo it especially with the progress made with the firmware on this platform.

Also, it would appear that while the Orion MKII SMA connectors are now directly accessible, you must also be using the parallel micro-coax connectors internally to connect to the RF board, is that correct?

Yes.


Are there any receive preselectors on the RF board?

We plan to have a separate preselector board available down the line, it will install inside the case, so in effect this will have exactly the same performance as the 8000DLE albeit at lower power output


Does the RF board have the usual 10 and 20dB receive attenuators on it?

No need for these, none of the current radios have this.


Will the top of the case have any drilled and tapped holes for an additional external heatsink for those who wish to use "additional cooling"?
NO the Fan will have rubber pads to just sit on top of the case if required


Is power supply sequencing important? How much current does the 48VDC amplifier input require?

No, the 48v rail will use a maximum of 2A


Will there be new versions of PowerSDR and Thetis, or will people just select the ANAN-8000 and ignore the things the 6000 doesn't do like three antenna inputs, etc?

Yes, the new model will be supported, I need to request Doug to add the 6000DLE

DAC out?
Interesting.

I understand from you that the initial production will not inc an Lna for 6m. I think this is a mistake and will hinder some initial sales until this is available. Have a think about whether or not you can include it from the start and likely you will have more preorders - imho. Given the size it would cert clear a lot of desk space over my 8000!

Curious as to how the 6000 is progressing, I like the option of a lower power version that can drive an amp.

Not sure I would implement HV finals. I understand the better IMD performance, not sure it is worth the added cost and complexity of an additional HV supply, particularly at these power levels.

When would these be available?
