The Model 500A250B is a self-contained, air-cooled, broadband, completely solid state amplifier designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth and high gain are required. Push-pull LDMOS circuitry is utilized in all high power stages in the interest of lowering distortion and improving stability. The Model 500A250A, when used with an RF sweep generator, will provide a minimum of 500 watts of swept power.
The Model 500A250B is equipped with a Digital Control Panel (DCP) which provides both local and remote control of the amplifier. The DCP uses a 3.75 inch diagonal graphic display, menu assigned softkeys, a single rotary knob, and four dedicated switches to offer extensive control and status reporting capability. The display provides operational presentation of Forward Power and Reflected Power plus control status and reports of internal amplifier status. Special features include a gain control, forward RF sample port, and a reflective RF sample port for precise power measurements.
