Amplifier Research 100W1000B RF Amplifier 1 MHz 1000 MHz 100W

Description

Amplifier Research 100W1000B is a portable, self-contained, air-cooled, broadband, completely solid-state amplifier designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain and linearity are required. Push-pull circuitry is utilized in all high power stages in the interest of lowering distortion and improving stability.

The Model 100W1000B, when used with a sweep generator, will provide a minimum of 100 watts of RF power.

The Model 100W1000B is equipped with a Digital Control Panel (DCP) which provides both local and remote control of the amplifier. The DCP uses a digital display, menu assigned softkeys, a single rotary knob, and four dedicated switches (POWER, STANDBY, OPERATE and FAULT/RESET) to offer extensive control and status reporting capability. The display provides operational presentation of Forward Power and Reflected Power plus control status and reports of internal amplifier status.

Special features include a gain control, internal/external automatic level control (ALC) with front panel control of the ALC threshold, pulse input capability and RF output level protection. Also included is an internal RF detector which provides an output for use in self-testing or operational modes. Protection is provided by DC current level sensing and individual fusing of all output stages.

All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely in GPIB / IEEE-488 and RS-232 format. The bus interface connector is located on the back panel and positive control of local or remote operation is assured by a keylock on the front panel of the amplifier.

Housed in a stylish, contemporary bench top enclosure, the Model 100W1000B provides readily available RF power for typical applications such as RF susceptibility testing, antenna and component testing, watt meter calibration, and as a driver for frequency multipliers and higher power amplifiers. A safety interlock can be implemented via a rear panel connector.
