The 1000W1000G from AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation is a self-contained, air-cooled, solid-state amplifier that operates from 80 to 1000 MHz. When used with a sweep generator, it provides over 1000 Watts of CW output power and a gain of more than 60 dB with a noise figure of 6 dB. This amplifier has been developed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain, and linearity are required.
It has a Digital Control Panel (DCP) which provides both local and remote control of the amplifier. The digital display on the front panel indicates control status and reports of internal amplifier status. All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely in GPIB/IEEE-488 format, RS-232 hardwire and fiber optic, USB, and Ethernet.
This amplifier also has a safety interlock circuit for use with external safety switch interlocks. This circuit prevents the amplifier from going into operating mode unless the external connection is made. A jumper plug is provided for cases where this functionality is not needed. The 1000W1000G is available in a single equipment rack that measures 56.1 x 97.8 x 82.5 cm with N-type female input and 7-16 DIN female output connectors.
