  The need for individual power levels and control interfaces results in unique power amplifier systems used to accelerate particles via microwaves. Solid-state power amplifiers (SSPA) offer the advantage of a good modularity and scalability to address these needs. However, the design, development, and production of such a complex SSPA system with sufficient reliability is challenging and expensive, due to the customized requirements. We are addressing this issue by offering a high flexibility with our modular design in combination with our in-house developed control software. Based on our experience we are eliminating potential downsides by industrialization and still offering a high grade of flexibility to meet the individual needs. At the best practice example of our circulator tracking, developed for low frequencies around 80MHz, we will demonstrate how customization and industrialization can come along together.
