The Model 40S6G18B is a portable, selfcontained, air-cooled, broadband, completely solid-state amplifier designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain and linearity are required. The Model 40S6G18B, when used with a sweep generator, will provide a minimum of 40 watts of RF power instantaneously from 6 to 18 GHz. Amplifier Research Model 20S6G18B Digital Control Panel
The Model 40S6G18B is equipped with a Digital Control Panel (DCP) which provides both local and remote control of the amplifier. The DCP uses a graphic Liquid Crystal Display, menu assigned softkeys, a single rotary knob, and a dedicated power on/off switch to offer extensive control and status reporting capability. The display provides gain setting and reports of internal amplifier status. Special features include a gain control and input overdrive protection.
All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely in GPIB/IEEE 488 format, RS-232 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 Model 40S6G18B is designed to have low spurious signals, linearity and is extremely load tolerant which enables it to be used in many RF applications such as: RF susceptibility testing, antenna/component testing, and communication technology testing. 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, UWB, WiMAX etc.
