The Model 1000SP1G2 is a self-contained, forced-air-cooled, broadband solid-state microwave amplifier designed for pulse applications at low duty factors where instantaneous bandwidth and high gain are required. The unit provides a conservative 1000 watts minimum peak RF pulse power at the amplifier output connector. Stated power specifications are at the fundamental frequency.

The amplifier's front panel digital display shows forward and reflected average power output or forward and reflected peak power, plus extensive system status information accessed through a series of menus via soft keys. Status indicators include power on, standby, operate, faults, excess average or peak reflected power warning and remote. Standard features include a built-in IEEE-488 (GPIB) interface, 0dBm input, TTL Gating, VSWR protection, gain control, RF output sample ports, plus monitoring of baseplate temperature and cabinet temperature. Modular design of the power supply and RF components allow for easy access and repair. Use of switching mode power supplies results in significant weight reduction.

Housed in a stylish contemporary cabinet, the amplifier provides readily available pulsed RF power for a variety of applications in Test and Measurement, (including EMC RF pulse susceptibility testing), Industrial and University Research and Development, and Service applications. AR also offers a broad range of amplifiers for CW (Continuous Wave) applications.
