The 4000W1000B from AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation is a Solid-State Amplifier that operates from 80 to 1000 MHz. This self-contained, air-cooled amplifier when used with an RF sweep generator, provides up to 4000 watts of power with a gain of over 66 dB. It is designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth and high gain are required. The amplifier features an internal automatic level control (ALC) with front panel control of the ALC threshold, forward and reflective RF sample ports for precise power measurements and RF output level protection.
The Device is equipped with a Digital Control Panel (DCP) which provides both local and remote control of the amplifier. The DCP uses a colour LCD touch screen and a single rotary knob to offer status reporting and control capability. The display provides an operational presentation of Forward Power and Reflected Power plus amplifier status.
The 4000W1000B is available in a single equipment rack that measures 44 x 70 x 38.4 inches with an N-type female input and a 1-5/8 type female output connector. The device 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. All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely in GPIB/IEEE-488 format, RS-232 hardware and fibre optic, USB, and Ethernet.
