Amplifier Research 50W1000B

 AR-50W1000B 50Watt, CW 1-1000MHz RF Power Amplifier

The  AR-50W1000B is a portable, self-contained, air-cooled, broadband, solid
state amplifier designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth and
high gain are required. Push-pull circuitry is utilized in the high power
stages to lower distortion and improve stability. The 50W1000B, when used with
an RF sweep generator, will provide a minimum of 50 watts of swept power.
Included is a front panel gain control which permits the operator to
conveniently set the desired output level.

The  AR-50W1000B is protected from RF input overdrive by limiting diodes and an
RF input leveling
circuit which controls the RF input level to the RF amplifier first stage when
the RF input level is increased above 0 dBm. The RF Amplifier stages are
protected from over temperature by removing the DC voltage to them if an over
temperature condition occurs due to cooling blockage or fan failure. There is
a digital display on the front panel to indicate the operate status and fault
conditions when an over temperature, power supply, or amplifier fault has
occurred. The unit can be returned to operate when the condition has been
cleared. The  AR-50W1000B includes digital control for both local and remote
control of the amplifier. This 8-bit RISC microprocessor controlled board
provides both IEEE-488 (GPIB) and
asynchronous, full duplex RS-232 control of all amplifier functions.

The export classification for this equipment is EAR99.
