The Model 40S6G18C from AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation is a Solid-State Power Amplifier that operates from 6 to 18 GHz. It delivers an output power of 60 W with a small signal gain of 53 dB. This amplifier has a class A design and supports AM, FM and Pulsed modulations. It provides protection from input overdrive beyond 0 dBm and various failure conditions including over-temperature and power supply faults. This amplifier has a harmonic distortion of -25 dBc and low levels of spurious signals which makes it suitable for use as a driver in testing wireless and communication components and subsystems.
The 40S6G18C has a front panel display that indicates the operational status and fault conditions. All amplifier control functions, and status indications are available remotely using GPIB/IEEE-488, RS-232, fiber-optic serial, USB, or Ethernet interfaces. It is available in a benchtop enclosure that measures 50.2 x 20.6 x 63.8 cm with N-type (female) connectors and is ideal for EMC (military, aviation, automotive, commercial), radiated & conducted EMC testing, general purpose antenna and component testing, CDMA, W-CDMA, TDMA, GSM, UWB and WiMAX applications. It requires an AC supply from 100 to 240 V and consumes less than 700 W of power.
The export classification for this equipment is 3A001.
