The Amplifier Research 2500A225 is a self-contained, broadband, completely solid-state amplifier designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth and high gain are required. The amplifier is air cooled using internal self-contained liquid cooling for high performance and reliability. Push-pull LDMOS circuitry is utilized in all high power stages in the interest of low distortion and improved stability.
The Model 2500A225 is equipped with a Digital Control Panel (DCP), providing local and remote control of the amplifier. The DCP uses a 3 ¾ inch diagonal graphic display, menu assigned softkeys, a single rotary knob, and four dedicated switches to offer extensive control and status reporting. The display provides operational presentation of Forward Power and Reflected Power plus control status and reports of internal amplifier status.
All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely in GPIB/IEEE- 488 format, RS-232 hard wire, fiber optic and USB. The bus interface connectors are located on the back panel and positive control of local or remote operation is assured by a keylock on the front panel of the amplifier. High efficiency universal input, power factor corrected switching power supplies provide DC to all internal sub-assemblies.
Housed in a stylish, contemporary enclosure, the Model 2500A225 provides readily available RF power for typical applications such as RF susceptibility testing, antenna and component testing, watt meter calibration, particle accelerators, plasma generation, communications and use as a driver for higher power amplifiers. The export classification for this equipment is EAR99. These commodities, technology or software are controlled for export in accordance with the U.S. Export Administration Regulations. Diversion contrary to U.S. law is prohibited.
