AR Worldwide RF/Microwave Instrumentation Turns up the Power on Its Hybrid Traveling Wave Tube Amplifiers
New 35ST1G18 and 50ST1G18 TWTs Provide 35 Watts CW and 50 Watts CW
Souderton, PA - 8/29/06 - AR Worldwide RF/Microwave Instrumentation has added two new, higher power amplifiers to its family of broadband hybrid solid state and traveling wave tube (TWT) microwave amplifiers.
The Model 35ST1G18 delivers a conservative 35 watts minimum at the amplifier output connector with low harmonics. The Model 50ST1G18 provides a conservative 50 watts minimum. Both are designed for the 0.8 - 18 GHz frequency range. Existing hybrid TWT units offer 10 and 20 watts, so the new amplifiers represent a significant increase in power.
The solid state amplifiers are 100% VSWR tolerant and the TWTs have VSWR protection. Standard features for both units include a built-in IEEE-4888 (GPIB) interface, 0dBm input, gain control, RF output sample port, plus monitoring of TWT helix current, cathode voltage, collector voltage, heater current, heater voltage, baseplate temperature and cabinet temperature.
The hybrids TWT provide readily available RF power for a variety of applications in Test and Measurement, (including EMC RF susceptibility testing), Industrial and University Research and Development, and Service applications.
