500S1G6 Datasheet
The Model 500S1G6 is a portable, self-contained, air-cooled, broadband, completely solid-state amplifier designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain and linearity are required. The Model 500S1G6, when used with a sweep generator, will provide a minimum of 500 watts of RF power.

The Model 500S1G6 is equipped with a Digital Control Panel (DCP) which provides both local and remote control of the amplifier. The DCP uses a color LCD touch screen and a single rotary knob to offer status reporting and control capability. The display provides Forward Power and Reflected Power values plus amplifier status. Special features include a gain control and RF output level protection.

All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely in GPIB/IEEE-488 format, RS232 hardwire and fiber optic, USB and Ethernet. The buss interface connector is 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.

The low level of spurious signals and linearity of the Model 500S1G6 make it ideal for use as a driver amplifier in testing wireless and communication components and subsystems. It can be used 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. It is also suitable for EMC Test applications where undistorted modulation envelopes are desired.

The export classification for this equipment is 3A001. 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.
