Amplifier Research

Founded in 1969, AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation is a world-class source for broadband high power, solid state, RF amplifiers and microwave amplifiers, TWT amplifiers, log periodic antennas and high-gain horn antennas, plus EMC test equipment, software and field probes and monitors.  AR RF/Microwave is a member of the AR family of companies that includes AR Modular RF, SunAR RF Motion and AR Europe; they are recognized around the globe for products that deliver both outstanding quality and exceptional value.

Throughout its 50 years (and counting), AR has been responsible for a number of “firsts” which have transformed not only EMC and RF testing but also the industries and equipment affected by these tests. A sampling of these innovations includes:

  • 10,000-watt tube amplifiers
  • 100-watt solid-state 100-1000 MHz instantaneous bandwidth Class A amplifier
  • First production 16,000-watt solid-state linear amplifier from 10 kHz to 225 MHz
  • 50,000-watt Class A power amplifier up to 225 MHz
  • 0.7 to 6 GHz high-power Class A & AB amplifier

Additionally, they push the limits of state-of-the-art design and have ruggedized their products to make them virtually indestructible. AR amplifiers are fully tested to the extreme to ensure customers receive a product that is built to last.

Solve power problems you meet in your daily work, now that electrical loads in industrial and commercial buildings are often too complex to be calculated by the classical model of power.
Understand the major elements that affect power quality with our online webcast and supporting guidebook:
  • particularly inductive loads
  • harmonic distortion
  • three-phase power unbalance


Fluke CLKT Infrared Windows are Available in Three Sizes 50 mm (2 in), 75 mm (3 in) and 100 mm (4 in) Each CLKT infrared window is engineered and tested to withstand electric-arcs up to 50 kA for 30 cycles. The ClirVu® coating - exclusive to Fluke infrared windows - seals the optic prior to assembly to protect against moisture degradation making it perfect for very hot and very cold outdoor environments. Each Fluke infrared window is delivered with an identification plate attached for unique, on-site numbering for rapid location confirmation and faster repairs. CLKT infrared windows come complete with a security access key, installation instructions and self-adhesive drilling template. For 5 minute or less installation and Autoground consider the CV300.
