Harris Boosts ACC+ Efficiency for AM Broadcasters

Harris is helping AM broadcasters significantly reduce average power consumption and operating costs with its next-generation Adaptive Carrier Control Plus (ACC+) systems. 3DX Front Panel

Harris has been providing ACC systems to international customers since the launch of the Super Power DX AM transmitter in 1993, with subsequent updates for ACC+ systems. Harris engaged with the FCC to authorize use of ACC/ACC+ technology in the U.S. earlier this year following a successful trial with Alaska Public Broadcasting. Harris also did extensive testing to validate ACC and ACC+ viability for HD Radio broadcasting on the AM dial.

Harris is now leveraging its PowerSmart® technology, first deployed in its latest DTV UHF/VHF and FM transmitters, for its next-generation ACC+ systems — producing up to a 35-percent reduction in energy use for AM broadcasters. Harris PowerSmart technology leverages green technology to increase power density, reduce footprint, and improve reliability through simpler designs and better operational efficiency. more

Harris Supports ACC Tests at Alaska Public Broadcasting

Harris announces that it is supporting Alaska Public Broadcasting tests for improving AM transmitter efficiency through Adaptive Carrier Control, a technique used to reduce power consumption. The company has also engaged with the FCC to open the possibility that more U.S. broadcasters can evaluate this green technology moving forward.

The Harris Adaptive Carrier Control (ACC) system is capable of several power reduction algorithm operations. These include Dynamic Carrier Control (DCC), which employs many power saving curves; and Amplitude Modulation Companding (AMC), which also yields energy savings. Together, DCC and AMC efficiencies within the Harris ACC system can potentially reduce operating costs by up to 35 percent. more
