Amplifier Research - 16000A225A-A - 16000 Watt CW, 10 kHz - 225 MHz, Air Cooled self-contained, broadband, solid state amplifier

More

The Model 16,000A225A-A 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 for high performance and reliability (self-contained fans with internal liquid cooling). Push-pull LDMOS circuitry is utilized in all high power stages in the interest of lowering distortion and improving stability.

The Model 16,000A225A-A 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 operational presentation of Forward Power and Reflected Power plus control status and reports of internal amplifier status. Special features include a gain control, pulse input capability, forward RF sample port, and a reflective RF sample port for convenient power measurements.

All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely in GPIB/IEEE-488, RS-232, RS-232 fiber optic, Ethernet and USB format. The buss interface connectors are located on the back panel and positive control of local or remote operation is assured by a switch on the front panel of the amplifier. High efficiency universal input, power factor corrected switching power supplies provides DC to all internal sub-assemblies.

Housed in a stylish, contemporary enclosure, the Model 16,000A225A-A 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.

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.
