Teseq CBA400M-110 10kHz-400MHz, 100 Watt RF Amplifier

Designed specifically for automotive, military and aerospace BCI and other susceptibility EMC testing, this mismatch tolerant Class A amplifier delivers power continuously into the varying match typically associated with this type of testing. The GaAs Class A push pull design ensures a high reliability, low distortion linear performance across the frequency range. This design also ensures that the amplifier will continue to operate at full power even when presented with an open or short circuit at its output. The use of gallium arsenide technology represents a breakthrough in amplifier design for this frequency range and output power. Previous designs based on silicon technology suffer from relatively poor compression characteristics, low efficiency and sometimes poor reliability. The unit is powered from a switched mode power supply for high efficiency, high power factor and wide voltage range operation. The unit is air-cooled with integral fans, and is protected against faulty cooling by excess temperature sensing. A safety interlock connector is provided, which the user can short circuit to ground, to put the amplifier into standby mode. Front panel indicators are provided to indicate over-temperature and RF interlock operation.
