AR Worldwide Ships First Amplifier With Power Expanded To 4000 Watts

Souderton, PA - 6/30/05 - In a world where so much expensive equipment becomes obsolete long before it's even paid for, AR Worldwide has created a way for its amplifiers to grow along with the needs of its customers.

AR's RF Microwave Instrumentation division is offering amplifiers with expandable power. The basic expandable power unit is the Model 1000W1000C, a 1000-watt amplifier that covers the 80 to 1000 MHz frequency range. Power can be added in 1000-watt increments, up to 4000 watts, by adding an amplifier module and a control unit. Now when AR customers need more power to accomplish high-filed, large EUT testing, they won't have to buy a new amplifier.

The company recently demonstrated its expandable power capabilities with the production of its first unit with power expanded to 4000 watts. Designed for the frequency range of 80 to 1000 MHz, the new Model 4000W1000 provides RF power for a variety of applications, including RF susceptibility testing, antenna and component testing, watt meter calibration, and as a driver for frequency multipliers and higher power amplifiers.

The unit employs push-pull circuitry in all high-power stages in order to lower distortion and improve stability. It is equipped with a Digital Control Panel (DCP) that provides both local and remote control of the amplifier.

Special features include a gain control, internal/external automatic level control (ALC) with front panel control of the ALC threshold, pulse input capability, and RF output level protection. Also included is an internal RF detector that provides an output for use in self-testing or operational modes. All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely in GPIB / IEEE-488 format.

All AR Worldwide products are backed by the company's commitment to delivering not only exceptional quality, but outstanding value. AR Worldwide Competitive Edge products supply a multitude of unique RF solutions to companies around the world. The company's limitless support network reaches the far corners of the globe. The expandable power amplifiers are backed by AR's exclusive 3-year warranty.
