1500W1000A Image


Note : Your request will be directed to AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation.

The 1500W1000A from from AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation is a selfcontained, air-cooled, broadband, completely solid-state amplifier that operates from 80 to 1000 MHz. It provides more than 1500 W of power, when used with an RF sweep generator with a gain of over 61.8 dB. This amplifier has been developed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain, and linearity are required. Push-pull circuitry is used in all high power stages for lowering distortion and improving stability. 

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.

The amplifier is available in a single equipment rack that measures 56.1 x 175.3 x 97.6 cm with 1-5/8 and N-type female connectors. It is ideal for applications such as RF susceptibility testing, antenna and component testing, watt meter calibration, and as a driver for frequency multipliers and higher power amplifiers.

The 1500W1000A has the ability to be upgraded at a later date to the 2000W1000D, 3000W1000B, or 4000W1000B (which are higher power versions).
