The 500S1G6A from AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation is a Solid-State Amplifier that operates from 0.7 to 6 GHz. It delivers an output power of more than 500 W (when used with a sweep generator) with a gain of over 57 dB. The amplifier has low levels of spurious signals and high linearity, making it suitable for use as a driver amplifier in testing wireless and communication components and subsystems. It is also suitable for EMC Test applications where undistorted modulation envelopes are required. Special features of the amplifier include gain control and RF output level protection.
The 500S1G6A is has a Digital Control Panel (DCP) which provides both local and remote control of the amplifier. It uses a color LCD touchscreen and a single rotary knob for status reporting and control capability. The display provides forward power, reflected power values, and amplifier status. All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely in GPIB/IEEE-488 format, RS232 hardwire and fiber optic, USB, and Ethernet.
The 500S1G6A is available in an enclosure that measures 50.3 x 127.0 x 61.0 cm and has N-type (F) / 7-16 DIN (F) connectors. It is suitable for use as a test instrument covering multiple frequency bands and is suitable for a variety of communication technologies such as CDMA, W-CDMA, TDMA, GSM, etc. The amplifier requires an AC supply from 200 to 260 V and consumes 3.8 kW of power.
This amplifier system has a 3A001 export classification.
