1000T8G18B Datasheet
The Amplifier Research 1000T8G18B is a broadband traveling wave tube (TWT) amplifier with an output power of 1000 W (CW) and a frequency range of 7.5 GHz to 18 GHz. AR 1000T8G18B models perform outstandingly in applications calling for high gain, high power output and an instantaneous bandwidth. Engineers rent Amplifier Research 1000T8G18B amplifiers for use in the defense, R&D and EMC RF susceptibility testing industries. A front panel digital display offers comprehensive system status information, including forward and reflected output, and features an IEEE-488 (GPIB) interface. VSWR protection, gain control RF output sample ports along with monitoring of the TWT helix current are all built in to AR 1000T8G18B systems.
